Does anyone make their own salsa? Does anyone make hot sauce? Do you just buy it in a bottle? Show us your recipe or a picture of what you like.

My wife makes me a couple quarts of salsa each year from what we grow in the garden. Not sure of her recipe right off but it sure is tasty!

Fresh tomatoes? That is the secret to a great salsa.

Fresh tomato is all I use. The peppers and onions from my garden as well. Cool

Does hot oil count?

For hot sauce I just take 1# of ripe habaneros, put them in the Vita-Mix and add enough vinegar to get it liquefy adjusting as required. Add 1/3 cup of kosher salt at the tail end of the process, be sure it's dissolved. It keeps a very long time. Measured in years.

It's not as good as a fresh ripe and thin sliced habanero.

Hot oil
Tip: do this outside or under an exhaust fan. For hot oil I take 1# of ripe habaneros, and fine chop them in the vita-mix. You want them quite fine. They go into a saucepan, and I add a 24 oz bottle of peanut oil. Bring to a slow simmer. The pieces of pepper will be seen to boil and eventually as the water in them completely disappears they will begin to brown. At that point it's done and hotter than hades, both temperature and spicy hot. Use a large coffee filter, a piece of cloth, whatever, to strain the solids from the hot oil. It'll strain faster when it's hot and viscous. Kept in refrigeration it keeps a very long time. Of course one could use other fresh peppers or even dry red pepper flakes. There is no flavor to this oil, only heat, so bear that in mind when using. Ghost peppers would also work great for this.

I'm salivating like Pavlovs dog right now just thinking about it. I love heat.

Good post Brian. I love a good hot hot sauce as well. Sometimes I use a milder sauce, sometimes a hotter sauce. It all depends on what I'm in the mood for. Here's some I buy and love:

Down here in south texas, we make our salsas in many different ways and different ingredients. I'm Hispanic so I love my salsas!
Here is one fave of mine
On a grill using mesquite. Grill an onion, a jalapeño, and two tomatoes. Careful with the tomatoes the skin tends to peal off and you can make a big mess. Throw all of them in a blender and add tablespoon of salt and blend.

Aaron, I look at that picture, see "habanero" and I begin salivating. I don't think there's a more flavorful pepper on the planet. It's so flavorful that the wife wants it turned into hot sauce to remove some of the fruity taste. I love them ripe, sliced thin with a razor blade, and used fresh, but not her. Dang, I'm salivating big time right now.

Here's a tip if you ever have a cold. To quell a cough take some hot sauce and place it under the tongue. You want it to burn. It'll force the body to release endorphins. That's the high one gets from morphine and other opiates, except we hotheads can get the effect without those drugs or the side effects. It quiets a cough close to immediately and it'll last for a few hours. Repeat as required. It works better than codeine. I know firsthand.

OK, more herbalist stuff... for severe bleeding sprinkle the wound with cayenne; it's stops bleeding almost immediately.

Hot peppers are a superfood and much more.

I'm from south Texas also, we grew up making salsa just like you just described. When I'm not grilling I just place the ingredients in the oven on broil. It gives it a nice smokey flavor. Also, tomatillos make a great salsa. Tomatillo's, garlic and a pepper of your choice with a squeeze of lime.

Hot sauce man here.

This is my current rotation.
Five of these are NZ made. The Kiwifruit Chili is very nice.

I like it a lot, need to restock. I think I saw it in the South African shop, may need to call in for a bottle and check out their other stuff.
They had a few Jamaican hot sauces.
