Homemade tabasco sauce - rhp

Yield: 1 cup

Measure Ingredient
12 eaches Large Tabasco chiles; stemmed
1 clove Garlic; peeled
½ cup Herbed Chilli Vinegar; see recipe
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Sugar

In a small, nonreactive saucepan, boil the chillies and garlic in the vinegar until tender. Place in a blender with the salt and sugar and puree. Run through a metal sieve if necessary. Dilute this paste with more vinegar until it is the consistency of rich cream.

Pour into a nonreactive saucepan, bring to a boil, then pour into a hot, sterilized bottle to within ½-inch of the rim and run a sterilized knife around the inside of the bottle to release air bubbles. Wipe the rim clean and scald with a scalded top. Store in the refrigerator once opened.
