Jalapeno Hot Sauce

Simply delicious hot sauce made from fresh jalapenos. This hot sauce is spicy, tangy, and leaves a slow burn. The texture is salsa-like and pours over great. 

I am really excited to present this recipe. It is not as intimidating as I thought it was initially going to be. In fact, I might actually prefer this to the store bought brands. Making your own sauce lets you control the spice level, texture, and tang level. 


Jalapeno Sauce 

Makes ~5 jars

  • 20 jalapenos
  • 1 cup white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Cornstarch
  • Sugar
  • Salt

First and foremost, put gloves on! Spicy hands is no joke and burns through the night and the next day. 

Wash and take the stems off all peppers

Take the seeds out of half of the peppers

Roast the peppers at 375 for about 30 mins

Add to a blender and add 1 cup of vinegar, blend until smooth

Pour smooth mixture into a pot and keep on medium heat

Add a sprinkle of salt and 1 tbs sugar to start

Let the sauce simmer for a bit and then season to adjust to taste

Mix in a separate bowl 1 tbs of cornstarch and enough water to stir into a thin paste

Once the sauce has reached a light boil, pour in the cornstarch while mixing the sauce

Allow the sauce to cool before putting it into containers and it does freeze well
