Well. I finally got my mixed peppers made into sauce. I even tried it, just a drop on the tip of my finger. It didn’t kill me! Now I know my pepper freaks will tell me, “It’s good, good flavor, not too hot.” My tongue tingled for hours…so I know it would be classified as “medium heat.”
Yeesh. I am such a wuss.
Started with these guys…
Got them all stewed up,
and into temporary homes. I’m waiting for my canning supplies (tongs!) to come in from Amazon. I hit pay dirt with the jars! I followed an ad in the paper, and met this really cool elderly lady…with a basement full of vintage canning jars. I have a thing about vintage…anyway, the sauce is sitting out there in anything that would hold it. I only had one gallon jar left, so I grabbed a couple of old tomato sauce jars, and a few refirgerator jars (vintage, of course) and left them there until my canning tongs come in the mail. I wound up with about two gallons of this medium heat sauce, and I know I’ll have no trouble finding homes for every drop.
So, now, I’m thinking…I can take some of the really HOT sauce I made the other day, and some of this medium heat stuff, and mix it, to make a hotter sauce. Three grades? Warm, hot, and really sick and twisted, rip your guts out and make you cry sauce.
It can happen! I have jars….
