Spicy Christmas - Thai Pepper Sauce

What's more special than giving a gift from your very own garden.  Homemade gifts are always special and unique, especially when they are planted, grown, and picked from your very own garden.  Lots and lots of love goes into our garden and it is a real joy for us to share not only with our loved ones, but also with all of you!  Be sure to be be creative!

Got lots of peppers this year?  Here is an idea for you to share them.  In this video I will be showing you how to make a hot pepper sauce that will blow your mind. A little bit of this tangy sauce goes along way!!  Use it in place of your favorite hot sauce on dishes such as sautéed veggies, steak marinade, even a salad dressing!!

Enough with how great it taste and what it can be used on!  Lets get this sauce going:)...

Here's the items that you will need for this project.
  • A swing top glass bottle (got mine at IKEA)
  • Red and green thai peppers.
  • Organic cider vinegar (Apple Cider Vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of organic sugar
  • Funnel
  • Festive Christmas ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Personalized tag
  • Hole puncher (optional)

I found my swing top glass bottle at Ikea but you can follow the link and find it at amazon.  Now depending on the size of your glass bottle, keep in mind, use 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar for every cup of cider vinegar needed to fill your bottle.

Also remember, when adding the peppers to the bottle, there will water displacement.  So I recommend you fill your bottle with your peppers and water to see how much vinegar you will need.  Slowly pour the water out of the bottle into a measuring cup to determine how much vinegar will actually be need to fill your bottle.

Once you figured out how much vinegar you need for your bottle, it's time to add all the ingredients together.  Now pour your cider vinegar in a sauce pan over medium heat and add your salt and sugar.  Stir the ingredients altogether until the salt and sugar dissolves completely (this should take about 3 to 5 minutes).

Now take your funnel and pour the cider vinegar into your glass bottle.  Let it sit out for about 30 minutes or so until the bottle reaches room temperature before you put the cap on.   Now take the bottle, close the cap and store in the fridge for about three weeks.  Shortly before giving it to your special someone, add a personal touch.

Get your ribbon and a nice tag and go ahead and personalize your bottle.  Now give with love! 

Side note.  Your sauce can be stored in the refrigerator up to 6 months.  Let the person know and maybe use a sharpie marker and write the date you made it on bottom of bottle:)
