Cookin' in the sauce lab today!
I set up shop outside today and cooked down two large batches of my 'taco sauce.'
First batch was mostly Fresno peppers, with HHWax, red savina, and just a few Naga and Reapers. Added one yellow onion, 5 tbs minced garlic, 1 bunch of cilantro, 5 tbs salt, and covered with vinegar. About 175 peppers total in the sauce. It filled 12 mason jars and was canned. Heat at about 7 of 10 (for the average person), more like 4 of 10 for most of us. I named it Taco Sauce #7.
Second batch was the same 'taco sauce' recipe - but the only peppers in it were Reapers and Naga, still to the tune of about 175! This one is off the charts in heat!! I tried a small bit before canning it and ended up sweating perfusely and had the worst stomach cramps ever for about 30 minutes. I named this one Taco Sauce #666. Still made a full batch of 12 mason jars with this one as well.
Canning the last few stragglers:
