Hot Sauce

Hot peppers - cayenne, habanero, hot banana, jalapeno

Fermented hot sauce is a great way to experiment with different styles and flavours of hot sauce. Add fruit, vegetables and spice.  Make it as hot (or not) as you like it.




  1. Finely chop all the vegetables and garlic in a food processor.
  2. Mix with the salt and water, then pack into a jar for fermenting.
  3. Ferment somewhere cool for 5-14 days.
  4. Strain into a jar for storage in the fridge and discard the pulp.
  5. If you want to add additional flavours like lime juice, vinegar or sugar, do this to the liquid after straining.
