So first time posting on /ck/
I am interested in making my own hot sauce, I started doing some reading on some sites but recipes have a huge amount of variance. Some say fry peppers and then bust out the blender, some say boil in vinegar. Etc.
I want to make a Mango Hot sauce, and if anyone has any experience or advice on making hot sauce I would really appreciate it.
i've never made hot sauce with fruits in it, but here's some tips
decide if you want a faggoty super hot vinegar tobasco rip off or not. hopefully you decide not
think about what you want your final sauces thickness to be. thin and liquidy, or thicker and more like a ketchup? somewhere in between is best
Consider what peppers to use. Jalapenos? Pablanos? Habaneros? Meme-tier ghost peppers? I like habaneros and chipotles, as well as roasted bell and pablano peppers.
Here's how i make my restaurants habanero sauce sorta.
carrots, whole garlic cloves, onions, habs, rehydrated chipotles, vinegars, water, salt, a little sugar, some secret other shit
boil til the garlic is soft and squishes under your finger
blend in overly expensive blender
most of all i'd say experiment and have fun.
carrots are underrated and underused for hot sauces
OP i wouldn't use sauteed veg in a hot sauce, the caramelization can be overpowering once it's blended with everything else. just steam or boil.
