I made Apricot Pepper Jelly and had quite a few jalapeños left over so I made some quick southern Pepper sauce. I love this stuff and have always said Pepper sauce would make a cardboard box taste good. Southerners are pretty serious about their Pepper and hot sauces and even though I’m a Wyomingite now that hasn’t changed. I’ve been training my 10 year old to like spicy for years!
I like Pepper sauce best in blacked eyed peas and collard greens. My husband, who is not southern, goes along with whatever because he’s happy to have home cooking but I don’t think he shares my Pepper sauce enthusiasm. That’s fine, more for me!
I packed up the halved peppers and threw in some sweet peppers for color. I boiled 1 cup of vinegar, 1 tbs sugar and 1 tsp of salt (3 times) and poured it over the peppers. I didn’t process these, they will go straight into the refrigerator.
