Hot Sauce Mixer!

In How To, Recipes on October 13, 2009 at 12:37 AM

P1040515Thanks to Gina for hosting our amazingly spicy “Hot Sauce Get Together”! We’ve managed to come up with FIVE different recipes using up several pounds of Serranos and Cayannes. We HIGHLY recommend handling the peppers with disposable rubber gloves and occasionally goggles to avoid injuries. With so many taste tests, everyone felt the HEAT!!! Hope this inspires you to try it at home. Here are some highlights:

Vietnamese Hot Pepper Sauce = Extra spicy! Use in noodle soups, any recipe that calls for heat or as dipping sauce(perfect with summer rolls)!
Sliced Serrano Peppers
Minced Garlic
Distilled white vinegar
Fish Sauce
Sugar

Yemenite Zhug = Spicy! Use with Middle Eastern foods, sandwiches, on scrambled eggs and anything else that asks for a spicy green paste.
1 pound Serrano peppers
5 heads Garlic, peeled
1 bunch coriander, washed
1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder
Salt to taste
Olive oil to cover

Cayenne Hot Sauce = Not too spicy because we removed seeds. Great in Mexican dishes, pasta or any recipe that asks for sweet heat.

10 large fresh red cayenne chiles
2 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
3/4 cup white vinegar Salt

Cut stems off peppers and cut peppers in half lengthwise. Remove seeds 
and ribs. Preheat broiler. Place peppers, cut side down, on rack in 
broiler pan. Broil for about 5 minutes or until the skin blisters and 
blackens. Transfer peppers to a plastic bag for about 10 minutes. When 
cool, peel off skins(we actually left them on!).

Place chile pulp and garlic in a blender or food processor. With 
machine running, slowly add the vinegar until the mixture is well 
blended. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate. Will keep in the 
refrigerator for weeks. Makes about 1 cup.

Most of the recipes we found called for vinegar and garlic beyond that there is a million ways to mix and match and get creative with hot peppers!!! Try adding apple sauce, tomatillos or corn…Have fun and send in your creations to tribeca-csa@googlegroups.com!
