Hot! Hot! Hot!

September 21st, 2009 at 02:02 pm

I am trying to make some homemade hot sauce. The hot peppers went just plumb crazy this year. So I washed and stemmed them, put them thru the food processor, and cooked them down in the crockpot, with a little salt, vinegar and water. OMG! It's a good thing that the weather is nice, cause I opened all of the windows in the kitchen, and turned on a fan! I am standing as far away as I can reach every time I lift the lid! My Hubby will love it! If I live long enough to can it. I did let it cool overnight, and then food process it again, so it would be nice and smooth. Now its just reheating, and then into 1/2 pint jars. If I survive, I will make another batch, (sucker)! I hate to throw anything away, even hot peppers. So, I won't have to make more for a decade, that's planning ahead, right? As long as it doesn't eat thru the lids, I can't imagine a bug or bacteria brave enough to break into THOSE jars.

    DH has a blender dedicated just to red Savina habaneros! DH also has a way of drying and smoking the peppers to make a powder that can be sprinkled.

    The other night I was making dinner, chopping what I thought were bell peppers from my FIL's garden. All of a sudden I felt like I couldn't breathe. I went out and asked DH if the little yellow things were really hot peppers?? I could not go back into the kitchen that night! I'm a wimp.

    For our last harvest before we left the States to live overseas, we had a summer that would lead one hot pepper plant to go absolutely crazy! They were some of the hottest I ever tasted. They also served another purpose (garden insurance) when the neighborhood kids came over to steal our cherry tomatoes and strawberries, and they didn't know what those little red things were! Two of them took a nibble, and they were tearing up like crazy... I think that was the last time they took anything, too. =)
