Can I can this Jalapeno Sauce?
I found this recipe for Jalapeno Sauce. It doesn't mention anything about canning, but I was wondering what you folks thought. It says it will last for 6 months in the 'fridge, but it's unlikely I'll be able to go through it all in 6 months (I ended up with 8 pint jars of it!)
Here's the recipe:
Jalapeno Hot Sauce
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½50 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½6 cloves garlic, minced
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½1 cup minced onion
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½4 cups water
Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½2 cups distilled white vinegar
1.In a medium glass or enamel lined sauce pan over high heat, combine oil, peppers, garlic, onion and salt; saute for 4 minutes. Add the water and cook for 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
2.Transfer the mixture to a food processor and puree until smooth. With the processor running, slowly add the vinegar.
3.Pour into a sterilized jar with a tight lid. This sauce will keep for 6 months when stored in the refrigerator.
Can I pressure can it?
