The Hot sauce as pictured above can be made as follows:

Since the size of peppers etc vary I create recipes by weight. I use my postal scale.

6 oz Habanero Peppers, stems removed
1 Pineapple, skinned and core removed
3 oz. Japones Chilis, stemmed removed and re-hydrated for 1 hour
2 Tablespoons Molasses
4 oz. Salt, liquid measure
2 Tablespoons Thyme
1 Tablespoon Cracked Allspice
1/3 cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 cups vinegar

Grind up the peppers with the pineapple and mix in everything else. Let sit in a clean jar with an air lock for a month or longer shaking every couple to 4 days. This recipe varies depending on what I can get fresh but basically this is it. It is fairly hot and you can adjust the thickness by adding more vinegar.

Enjoy!

Jan,

It is really good. Spicy and tasty not just hot. It will last a really long time so I usually send it to my relatives as gifts.

Take care,
Bryan

You just keep coming up with more good ideas...thank you, Bryan!

Now I know 2 people who spell their name Bryan!

I ran into a vinegar mother once and was so grossed out because I had no idea what it was, that I threw it down the garbage disposal.

The airlocks are a good idea, but if I ever find ANY clue of a vinegar mother in the house I'll be pouring it down the drain, and then chasing that with bleach!! (Not to mention sanitizing the container it came from!)

Vinegar mother in a house full of fermenting beer and wine is, ah.. bad.

Calm down, John! The vinegar mother is a good thing! She is not going to come after you at night leaving a slimy trail behind. You really need her for vinegar and honestly, she doesn't slither out of the vinegar barrel looking for prey!! AND ... you don't have to sanitize or use bleach where "mother" has been --vinegar is a natural sanitizer. It kills germs and bacteria on contact!! Mix it with baking soda into a paste and use as a cleanser for sinks, tubs, showers, etc.-- a great alternative to those chemical cleaners.
Now, remember, John, be nice to "Mother" or ...?!?!

(Yes, you are correct -- never have your vinegar barrel in the same area if you are fermenting wine or beer -- otherwise the airborne vinegar spores will turn everything to vinegar!!)

Would anyone like to try a bottle of ronjohn's Tarrapin vinegar?

I know, not too funny!

Yes, I have thrown a vinegar mother down the drain before too - I'm just waiting for another one........and waiting.........and waiting.

I hate to ask, but what do you mean by salt, liquid measure?

It is measured in measuring cup and not as wieght. The peppers etc are listed by weight.

Many times I use weight instead of a measuring cup and get in the habit of listing ingredients as liquid measure.

Enjoy!
