Can you freeze home made hot pepper sauce? (like a Tabasco sauce)

    Yes you can freeze it. If it has pieces of tomato, onion, or pepper etc: they will get mushy.

    Quote:heehee It was Easy!
    Okay i took a mix of our peppers. (at LEAST 12 or so mix of peppers) I grilled about half of them. and removed some of the seeds. THe other half i just kept raw. with seeds intact. I used Habanero, Jalapeno, red chili, hungarian wax peppers.
    Also..when i was grilling the peppers, i also sliced a red onion in rings and grilled them also.
    So..grill about half the peppers and set aside...
    In a sauce pan i sauteed the raw peppers in butter with garlic until just soft. then i added the grilled peppers and onion to the saucepan and added 3 cups of white vinegar, about 3 cups orange juice, juice from 1 lime, about 3-4 cups fresh brewed coffee..(i know, it sounds gross!..but it came out good!You cant taste the coffee at all.. I should have used more actually) Oregano, Corriander, and a handful of sugar, 3 Tablespoons Kosher salt, 1 small can diced tomato, and 1/2 a big can of whole tomatos.
    I brought the mixture to a boil and then let it simmer for about an hour...
    keep tasting as you go..(ouch!) Then i took one of those hand blender things...and pureed it smooth.

    Also..this sauce is very hot..so..just make it to your taste..

    Also..if you dont have a hand blender..you can put it in a regular stand blender...just be careful of mixing hot stuff in a blender.(by hot i mean..hot from cooking..NOT hot pepper hot..LOL )..it can explode..

    [​IMG] That looks (and sounds) SO yummy!!! We a bunch of jalapenos (we let some turn red too!), serranos, and thai dragon peppers. Our habanero didn't produce much, if any, fruit this year. [​IMG] Maybe I'll grab a few from the store. Thanks so much!!!
