Hot Sauce!

The hot pepper plants are still producing TONS.  I'm running out of ideas.  Dried halapenos don't work.  So, this weekend, I made.....


Super simple.  I just took my ripened, red halapenos (I had 15), threw them in my small crock pot, added about 2 cups of white vinegar, and about a teaspoon of salt.  I cooked it on low for about 12 hours, then pureed it with my immersion blender and strained it.  Voila!  Its SUPER HOT.  But good. 

I would have had 16 peppers, but Matthew insisted on tasting one that night during dinner.  He took a teeny tiny bite, and didn't think it was too hot.  Before either Eric or I could stop him, he took out a huge bite.  (It was one of those slow motion things where Eric and I were both trying to scream "Noooooooooooo!" but couldn't get it out in time.) The screams were heard for miles (we were eating outside, no less).  He drank about a half gallon of milk.  But, he survived.  He'll never do THAT again.  

So, doesn't anyone else in this family cook?  or eat?  C'mon people!  Let's see some results!

Bon Apetit!
