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.

    Fun video, nice behind the scenes view. But, as professional wing eaters, why do you guys eat with two hands? I prefer to eat with one hand keeping the other hand clean to wipe my face or pick up my beverage, flats and drums can both be eaten very efficiently with one hand. Cheers!

    6:12 PRO TIP: remove stems?!?! srsly?PRO TIP?!... fucked up shit... completly bullshit the whole video...
    same with the pineapple, she says it gives acid, but then roast it to make it more sweet...AHA...or the vinegar, she says its important for preserving... but in the beginning she says the sauce is for eating FRESH?!
    bullshit nonstop...

    Does the heat & bottle tip at the end also apply to the first sauce or was it specifically for the second? I'm not sure because of the pineapple.

    Hot sauce? More like hot salsa. I was expecting an initial long ferment to deepen the flavor of the peppers about a thousand fold. Vinegar is a super cheap cheat to skirt around the production lead times that proper fermenting requires. Hopefully this fresh packed vegetable sauce is just generating cash flow while the real treasure is fizzing and burbling away while the microbes do their magic. Is a properly fermented Hot Ones sauce expected in the future?

    Every time I want to make a "hot" version of something I add a little hot sauce. So, to make hot sauce:
    1. Make sauce.
    2. Add a some hot sauce.
    PRESTO! Instant hot sauce!

    Jalapeño is good, but seriously... Serrano is much better. It's more tasty and spicy. Give it a try! According to Scoville Scale Jalapeño at 2,500 - 8,000 SHU (Scoville Hit Units) Serrano at 10,000 - 23,000.

    • Alexander Rembiszewski
      Alexander Rembiszewski 15 days ago +2

      She did say she wanted a milder sauce where she can eyeball how many peppers are going in. Maybe she should make another sauce with Serrano though. Definitely agree with you about flavor and heat.

      I forgot to mention that in terms of "post-meal effects" Serrano is less aggressive to your stomach than Jalapeño, even though Serrano is spicier than Jalapeño. So, you can eat it with no regrets.

    • Mister Turk Turkle
