Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce
What do you do when you harvest ghost peppers or buy some from the store? There are not a lot of obvious answers since ghost peppers are about six times hotter than a habanero. I made the decision to make ghost pepper hot sauce from the peppers I harvested from my garden and this is my recipe. This recipe makes a flavorful sauce that is good on anything from a vegan scramble to soups to avocado toast. I wore swim-goggles and gloves when I made mine because of how hot the peppers are and I recommend you do the same! This recipe makes a large amount, perfect for giving away as a gift for the holidays. I also prefer to prepare the ghost peppers in the food processor instead of chopping them to avoid contact.
