Raw hot sauce is the quickest, easiest condiment you can make. Here’s how to make raw hot sauce from any peppers you like.
If you’ve been following this site for a while, you probably have picked up that I’m obsessed with making hot sauce. Now that I’m growing hot peppers on the front porch, I’ve been itching to make some home grown hot sauce.
Since I’ve only got one pepper plant, I needed to do more with less. Cooking your peppers tends to mellow their heat level, so I decided to go raw instead! This hot sauce was freaking amazing. As a bonus, since you don’t have to boil any vinegar to make it, it doesn’t make the whole house smell like vinegar. My husband was pretty happy about that part.
Raw Green Hot Sauce
- 3 green cowhorn peppers (or your favorite, small chile pepper)
- 3 cloves of garlic
- apple cider vinegar
- Chop the tops off of the peppers and toss them into your food processor along with the garlic.
- Add just enough vinegar to cover.
- Blend until smooth.
That’s it! I’ve been using this hot sauce on pretty much every meal I make. The green chilies give it a really unique flavor, and the 1:1 chile to garlic ratio doesn’t hurt things, either. YUM! I’m keeping an eye on my pepper plant. As soon as there are three more peppers on there, you can bet I’ll be making another batch of this magical raw hot sauce!
