My husband doesn't use a recipe. He just makes it up as he goes. First, he starts by cooking the peppers in seasoned water for several hours. Seasonings include: salt, cumin, and garlic powder, as well as extra virgin olive oil. Do this outside on the side burner of your grill, if you have one, unless you enjoy coughing all day and having watery eyes :o) Process it in the blender in batches (carefulyl, as hot liquid expands). Add some vinegar to it. Filter it through a sieve to remove some of the skin and seeds. Taste it and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Then bottle it.
That's me going for a taste test...
After tasting it, my husband asked: "does it need more salt?". Needless to say, I was in search of ice cubes by that time, even though everybody knows water offers temporary relief only, and that I should have grabbed the milk jug. After I numbed my tongue and lips with the ice cube, I told him I couldn't tell if it needed anything, because it was so hot. So kids, don't do this at home. Put hot sauce in food and don't eat it with a spoon :o)
