Making all the Salsa that I can is one of my fav. things from working in the garden. I make everything from Fuego and curl your toes action to simple and basics. Thank you for bringing this wonderful to the masses here on Daves.

Salsa is fabulous! Whether it's store bought or from our garden, it's even better when we can "doctor" it with homemade hot sauce. I'm glad you liked the article! :-)

I hope you're inspired to give it a try! Not all hot sauce is super-hot. This recipe lends itself well to toned-down versions. We made "Hoppin' Bunny" sauce last year with mild 'Bulgarian Carrot' peppers and some other barely-hot peppers. I can eat it by by spoonful, and friends who can't "handle" hot sauce at all just love it. You can mellow and sweeten it at the end with a splash or two of fruit juice concentrate, too.

Hot peppers are probably just starting to come in in earnest, especially if you like red-ripe ones (farmer's markets are one of the few places where I can find red jalopenos and serranos, which have loads of flavor). Pick some up next week and give it a try! (Wasn't your daughter harvesting hot peppers like mad, too?)

Yes, she strung them on a thread and took them to Arizona from Boston, LOL. (Coals to Newcastle, ha ha!) But you're saying her plants might not be done?

I hope she has better luck than I did when I tried that... the fresh chiles that I strung rotted and got fruit flies while we were out of town. Eew! Somebody told me I should have dried them first, then strung them.

Coals to Newcastle, indeed!

Yes, the plants should keep on producing until frost... see any more blooms?

Great Job! Love the article Jill, of course I love hot stuff...grandpa gave me my first hot pepper when I was about 15 months old...now I always have fresh peppers, dried peppers, pickled peppers or hot sauce of some sort available!

15 months! LOL Guess that's no different than my folks giving me a kosher dill pickle just to see the faces I'd make (I think they had the movie camera out also).

We eat a lot of spicy food, too. I wonder what our girl will make of it! Right now, it's just formula for her, and that comes in only one flavor, bland. If I'd been able to breastfeed, she'd be getting garlic and chiles, LOL... I'm pretty sure capsicum gets expressed in breast milk.

I hope you'll be inspired to try some new hot sauces from your garden!
