Homemade Hot Pepper Sauce
3 cups chopped Habanero Peppers
2 cups white vinegar
2 tablespoons pickling salt

Place the lid on the container and process on medium speed for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until it is well combined. Once done you will want to pour it into glass jars (mason jars work well) or other glass container with lids.

This hot sauce will keep for up to 5 days refrigerated. You can use it to marinade your chicken wings or other chicken parts and you will want to marinade your poultry in the hot sauce for several hours before baking or grilling them.

*Note* some enjoy this sauce more if it cures for a day or two before using.

You can adjust it heat wise by changing the Habanero for a Jalapeno or another one of your favorite peppers you enjoy cooking with. Don’t be afraid to try out some different additional to create your perfect sauce.
