How to Make Hot Sauce | Hot Ones Extra

  • Published on Jan 16, 2018
  • Sean Evans has spent nearly 100 episodes choking down hot sauce. But does he have what it takes to make his own concoction? Anxious to turn the tables, Sean teams up with Hot Ones legend Erica Diehl-better known as Queen Majesty-for a crash-course in the hot sauce-making commandments. From a mild pineapple and jalapeño sauce to a fiery "Sicilian" scorpion blend, Sean learns how to slice, chop, and churn his way to new hot-sauce heights.
    A special thank you to Homesweet Homegrown for supplying the scorpion peppers. The pineapple and jalapeño recipe will appear in a forthcoming cookbook from High River Sauce's Steve Seabury.

    Calling a jalapeño not hot? my mouth was dying after I drank a cup of milk after eating one. I even ate some ice cream and then I just couldn’t even feel my mouth

    I'm making the first recipe tonight. Only I substituted jalapeno for canned chipotle peppers and the lemon for lime. So I'll have a nice chipotle lime version with fried chicken wings for dinner!

    Both of these people are idiots, end of story. Cut Pineapple into cubes and then explain how to grill them on "both sides" when there are obviously 6 sides, and then grill them on all sides instead of 2. Both people seem so disinterested and btw, this hotsauce sucks asshole. What would you put pineapple jalapeno sauce on that starts to turn sour after an hour or so after serving? Maybe dry pork sandwiches? No idea, I don't cook shitty food to need that garbage.
    Uses white vinegar because it is the cheapest to get a hold of for her "premium hotsauce." What a joke. White vinegar is so racist. I tried to get black vinegar and it doesn't exist because of white males flooding the market with their white blood cells. Only white men have white blood cells, so racist of them. (Fake news Fake recipe). Shit covered in shit, excreted through a cunt plugging it with a shitty dick. Worms of cunt shit, hosted by a man scared of a fucking blender, holding the top like he has a ginger by curly fire dragon hair with the flu at a public park he is afraid to punch in the face because his nails were just done by his grandmother who was eating his asshole 5 minutes ago and spit into his mouth after her dentures lost a tooth. That is the entire face and posture this cuck makes.
    Stupid fucking video. Go inject hot sauce into your aorta like a real man in order to take the real hot sauce challenge. Might as well sell this recipe as a cellulite burner, rub it on your fat fucking legs to rid the pain of ever having a man caress them, your cellulite wont disappear, but men will never have to see them for you to care.

    Made the pineapple sauce. It was good he first time I made it, but I added about a tbsp of brown sugar to it and it took some of the strong vinegar flavor away and i think i nailed it. Just a suggestion!

    Why would you not roast, grill, saute or smoke the onions, garlic, sweet peppers (or hot) before blending? Just seems to me that would yield a better product.

    Seeds DONT add heat ... Seeds grow from the white Membrane inside the pepper ... HEAT COMES FROM THE WHITE MEMBRANE .....srry bout that ... I've been growing peppers for decades and its a pet-peeve when I hear people say heat COMES from the seeds >.> ... No they don't .... Oh and pro tip, that white membrane makes you gassy ... cut it out if you don't like to "Toot" your horn

  • najtrows

    do you use the vinegar instead of fermenting the peppers? I've seen people fermenting their peppers for weeks before and now you just seem to have blended it and made a sauce the same day you taste it.
    any advice for this?

    Ive made my own hot sauces before. But I have the dilemma of the contents of the bottle separating after a fee days in the fridge. Am I probably doing something wrong for it to be kept for longer period of time. Anyone know what If thats a bad thing? Or its normal to have to shake it up good almost every time I use it?

    Pro tip: the seeds aren't where the heat comes from in a pepper. You would think to people who know hot sauce very well would know that, especially the girl that makes it every day.
