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.

    Dang that last one is enough ingredients for a restaurant! I wonder how to do a smaller batch?? And i always just blend pour and serve. I need to _cook_ the sauce to bring out the flavors more i guess?> Great tips awesome show!

    I wonder why they didn't sautee the ingredients first, wouldn't that deepen the flavor? Especially with the onions and garlic, they will add a lot of sweetness

    Pro tip... do a little research and lean how to ferment some chilies before you blend them.
    Another alternative is to try roasting the peppers on a charcoal fore to add some smoky depth to the flavor profile.

    The hottest part of a pepper is the white ribs, not the seeds. Get rid of the seeds if you don't like them, otherwise, just rinse them off and save yourself that tedious step.

      Like the other 2 said, scorpions are around 1.5 million shu and depending on how many you add, how hot you get it. I would say 200k to 400k would be a good guess for 2 peppers. Put about 5 or 6 in it and you'd probably get it over 1 million.

    Pro tip for your quick bois -- pop a couple tomatoes in the microwave for 30 seconds or less to help with the blending of everything. Those bullet sized blenders are pretty great for that, quick chutneys or salsas. We really need to popularize how certain words are basically the same.
    I mean if you can call Chicago Pizza Casserole a real pizza, why can't we get America to know that curry = spice mix, not just red green or yellow.

    My mom would never put vinegar in her sauce growing up I never saw this. But in this case there bottling it and not serving it fresh, although you could eat it fresh water is still a better way. Boiling the chilies with onion and tomato and then blending it with the same water I saw is the better way to go.

    Awesome recipe! I split everything into 2 sauces (half the ingredients each), one was normal and the other I added 3 seranos and a habanero and that gave it a bit more kick while maintaining the awesome flavor.

  • Gianna L

    Made the jalapeño pineapple hot sauce today! Really tasty, but I did have to make a few adjustment. Figured I'd share for those who are interested:
    The 2 cups of vinegar was A LOT and the sauce ended up tasting very vinegar forward, and also a bit watery. Ended up adding some more pineapple to thicken it up and add some sweetness back. Also used a few habaneros for added heat, used 1 tablespoon of lime just & 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and blended a handful of cilantro in with it all. Loved the end result and highly recommend these slight alterations!

    Does anyone know if the pineapple/jalapeño sauce is safe to can/bottle and store refrigerated afterwards? That's a lot of hot sauce to eat in one go so I'm wondering if there's a chance of botulism. I don't have a pH meter or litmus paper to check the acidity
