Just made my own hot sauce/labels

just made a few batches of different heat/flavored hot sauce... also just made these labels to go on the bottles... what do you think?



basic sauce... cayene pepper, crushed achiote, vinegar



Habanero's, Green Chillies, mango, jamaican allspice - hot!

wow, looks great jj.

btw, welcome. i didn't get a chance to respond to your intro yesterday. there's a few of us joisey-ites here. i drive through your old hometown every day on the way into work, on rte. 46.
can you recommend any places to eat? i've always wanted to go to china 46, but never slow down enough before it passes by.


anyway, your sauce ingredients sound tasty. i especially like the jalapeno.

As much fun as it is to make up a batch-o-sumthin' to give friends and family - sometimes creating the label is the most fun!

Caliente is hot as in temperature, not hot as in spicy. You want picante.

Example: Hot water = Agua caliente Hot sauce = Salsa picante

Nice Labels!

As far as letting it sit, when I make hot sauce I make about a gallon and I let it sit for at least a month. I think it makes it better to age it.

Also I just noticed that "Jamaican Jerk" is listed as a single ingredient. Jerk isn't an ingredient, it's a style of cooking.

Still love the labels, though!

no problem, jj.

i think most people would understand that it meant the spices used in jerk chicken.

if you wanted, you could be more specific by saying "jamaican jerk style seasoning".
