When peppers are an abundant crop in the garden, recipes can get extravagant. One of the easiest things to make is fermented hot pepper sauce. The combinations are endless, depending on what peppers are available. Simply harvest peppers, or purchase them from your local farmer’s market, chop them up and add them to a mason jar.

If seeds and the white ribs that hold the seeds into the pepper are left in tack, the sauce will be hotter. This heat can be cooled by adding a carrot and onion, which balances the flavors. A hotter sauce can be achieved by just doing chopped hot peppers.

For a quart mason jar, pack the vegetables into the jar, add one to two tablespoons of mineral salt, fill with filtered water being sure the vegetables are fully submerged, and put a lid on so it can sit on the counter for a week. 

Garlic and onion make a wonderful addition to hot sauces. 

Once the mixture is done fermenting, serve as is or pop it into a blender for a couple of pulses to make a liquid. Store and enjoy as desired.
