Yet another recipe that has become a staple here that was inspired by a post of food52.
Fresno chilies are perfect for making homemade sriracha.
Place the contents of the jars into a large heavy bottom pot and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes and yes your house will smell like vinegar.
Turn off stove and allow to cool. I keep the lid on the pot and let it sit for a few hours. Once it’s cool, puree it in batches in either a Vita Prep (I don’t have one) or a Cusinart.
Place into jars or freeze some. It last a VERY long time in the refrigerator. And then your done!
Below is the recipe for a smaller batch I usually purchase 2 times as much chilies and double the recipe.
Ingredients needed for Homemade Sriracha – Style Hot Sauce
Once you make it you’ll never purchase it again!
1/2 lb. Fresno chilies, washed, tops cut off, cut in half, seeded and placed into a large non-reactive jar
4 cloves of garlic
1 cup distilled white vinegar (I use cider vinegar too sometimes, but really you shouldn’t use anything with too much flavor)
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp. palm sugar (or regular white I just used palm since I had some sitting around)
Follow the instructions above and enjoy!
