How to Make Homemade Hot Sauce

How to Make Homemade Hot Sauce #homemade #recipe #hotsauce

With this (mostly) glorious weather we’ve been having, what’s better than a barbecue with friends? Hot sauce, that’s what!

Perfect on burgers, chicken, sausages, vegetables and anything else that’s fresh off the grill. What’s more, if you make a big batch, you’ll have some on hand to take as a gift for whoever is hosting. The recipe below makes three to four small bottles or jars that will last up to a couple of weeks in the fridge.

How to Make Homemade Hot Sauce

Suitable for : Beginners

You Will Need

How to Make

  1. Remove the lids from the bottles / jars and place the glass jars into a preheated oven at 90 degrees Celsius to sterilise.
  2. Chop the red onion and gently sweat with a small amount of olive oil in a large sauce pan.
  3. Chop the chilli and add to the pan and stir for a further five minutes.
  4. Add the sugar, vinegar, chilli flakes, salt and pepper and stir through.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes, stir and simmer, uncovered for ten minutes.
  6. Blitz using a stick blender or jug blender and return to the heat for a further five minutes – taste and season if required.
  7. Remove the jars from the oven with sterile tongs and using a funnel, pour the sauce into the jar and seal tightly.
  8. Stored in the fridge the sauce can last up to two weeks, but you could always freeze down excess or cut down the ingredients if you don’t think you’ll use it all!
