- 2-3 habanero peppers chopped in half
- 2 orange sweet peppers
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Basic Brine: 2 cups water + 1 tbsp salt
- 1 litre jar or bottle
- Make the basic brine by combining 2 cups of water with 1 tablespoon of salt. Set aside (you may need to warm the water up a little for the salt to dissolve).
- Chop up the habaneros, orange sweet peppers and garlic and add it to a mason jar or bottle. Fill the jar or bottle to the shoulder.
- Add the basic brine to the jar until the peppers are covered. Leave an inch of space from the top to avoid spills during fermentation.
- If you’re not using an airlock, cover the jar loosely with the lid so gas can escape while it’s fermenting.
- Set on the counter away from direct sunlight for 10-14 days.
- When it’s done fermenting, strain the pepper mixture from the brine and set the brine aside.
- Pour the pepper mixture into a blender, turn it on medium and slowly pour the brine into the blender until you get the consistency you like.
- Pour the hot sauce into a jar or bottle and store in the refrigerator. Hot sauce will last up to a year in the fridge.
