How to Make Cayenne Pepper Sauce

A. Johnson

Cayenne pepper sauce is a hot, spicy condiment that can be used to add culinary heat to chicken wings and other appetizers. A dash of cayenne pepper sauce will also liven up scrambled eggs or give a Bloody Mary a jolt. You can grow the peppers in your garden or find them at a produce stand or in the grocery store, then try making your own cayenne pepper sauce at home.

Cut off the pepper stems and cut the peppers into thin slices.

Combine all of the ingredients in a large heavy pot and bring to a boil. Boil for one hour.

Reduce heat and simmer the sauce for one hour. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Pour the cooled mixture into a blender and process until smooth.

Return the mixture to the pan and bring to a boil while stirring. After it comes to a boil, remove from the stove.

Pour the finished sauce into a clean glass jar after it cools and store in the refrigerator.
