  • 1 pound of hot peppers
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • Mason Jars with lids


  • Wear your gloves before washing the peppers. Remove stems from all of the peppers.
  • In a food processor or blender, grind peppers in batches along with few garlic cloves. Add some portion of vinegar and pulse. Pour this mixture into a pot and repeat this process for the remaining peppers.
  • Put the pot on the stove, add salt and cook on medium heat.
  • Fill water in another pot and bring to a boil. Place all the lids from jars into hot water.
  • When the pepper sauce starts making bubbles, turn off the heat and pour the hot sauce into jars immediately. Close the jars with lids but do not tighten too much. Let the hot air suck in the lid that will cause it to seal properly.
  • Keep these hot sauce jars in a cool and dry place. Once you open a jar to use the sauce, store it in the refrigerator until fully consumed.
