Now that you've ground all those pods into powder, here's something you can do with it. I found this posted on a vegan website originally.

Easy Teaspoon Hot Sauce


10 teaspoons water
10 teaspoons white vinegar
4 teaspoons hot pepper powders (cayenne, chipotle, smoked pepper, etc.)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt


1. Mix all ingredients, and store in old hot sauce jar or bottle. For milder sauce, use 3 teaspoons hot pepper powder.

2. For hotter sauce, use 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper, or 3 teaspoons cayenne + 1 teaspoon chipotle powder.

3. For extra hot sauce, use 5 teaspoons powder. It gets hotter the longer it sits.

This is called teaspoon hot sauce for obvious reasons. Measure everything in teaspoon measurements. It is really easy to make your own hot sauce, just use an empty bottle
from previously store-bought hot sauce to put your own in.

Serves: Fits easily into a 6 ounce bottle

Preparation time: 15 minutes

You found it posted on a vegan website... have you tried it yet or are you waiting for someone else to be the Guinea pig

I'll be mixing up a batch or two this weekend and report back after it steeps for a month.

Thanks for the recipe,

Sounds easy enough :-)

Bill, with your powders, it'll be ungodly hot.
