Pepper Sauce

Pepper Sauce

We had an abundance of peppers from the garden this summer. So what to do with them? Well, we made pepper sauce! Yum yum! It’s so easy. I bought the jars from Amazon, stuffed them with the peppers (I used Tabasco peppers), made the vinegar sauce, and then poured it into the jars. Add the cap and wa-la, you’re done.

The recipient of the pepper sauce can simply add vinegar to the bottle and continue using the pepper sauce for months to come. Can’t beat that!
