An easy DIY hot sauce made from fermented peppers that rivals the stuff on the grocery store shelf.
Pepper sauce, or “peppa sauce” to use the Southern parlance, is a dead-simple Southern staple. The recipe couldn’t be easier: peppers and vinegar in a bottle. But don’t let the simplicity fool you.
The beauty of fermented hot sauce is that it has a lovely sharp tang that complements the hot spice, lending a musky undertone that is all to familiar in the popular Tabasco brand pepper sauce.
A pressure cooker extracts the color and flavor from hot peppers in one minute at high pressure. The result is bold, vivid red and the flavor is amazingly bright with lots of heat and even a hint of "pepper" - not old and faded like Tabasco.
