With all the ripe chiles coming to market now, buy a bunch to make homemade hot sauce(s). Prepare a large batch and divide it up, perhaps as holiday gifts! A few pointers and then a number of recipes on the site for you to try.
I recently wrote about the varying degrees of heat in chile peppers. Don’t let that discourage your tinkering. If you cannot find hot red ones, use hot green chiles. Or, combine some hot green ones with not-so-hot red ones. Chile blend! The color may not be solid red or orange-red but you will have concocted a zippy condiment.
