Hot pepper sauces are ALL over the internet. And there are some really tasty and innovative sauces. But, Pepper Joe's favorites are his own home-made sauces. You can control the freshness of ingredients,the heat level, and make sure it's wholesome, organic and chemical and preservative free.
Listed are two easy-to-make recipes that I hope will become family favorites. Keep them refrigerated. They should last at least one year (although I'd bet they will go a lot quicker than that).
Cut hot pepper in half and remove seeds. Drop in boiling water for 30 seconds to blanche. Squeeze juice from lime and combine hot peppers with all other ingredients in blender and chop. Then put on high speed to blend all ingredients together. Store in an old hot pepper sauce bottle or ketsup bottle and store in fridge. It's simple to make and 100% natural.

Cut habanero peppers in half and remove seeds. Drop in boiling water for 30 seconds to blanche.(handle with care) Remove peppers and put onion, carrots and garlic cloves into boiling water and cook until tender. Squeeze juice from lime and combine all ingredients and put in blender. First chop, then blend at high speed. done!
Just put in wide-mouth jar and store in fridge. Spoon out this hot sauce as needed. Delicious on cheesesteaks, hamburgers, pizza, or added to soups, chili, tomato sauce. Also can scrub garage floors.
In a food processor chop up the Ghost Peppers, onion, garlic and carrots. Add salt and white pepper to taste (a tsp. of turmeric if you'd like as an additional preservative).
Add in 1/3 water and 2/3 Apple cider vinegar...to your consistency liking. This makes a thicker Hot Sauce that you can 'spoon' out.
The carrots, garlic and onion take a LITTLE of the edge off of the Ghost Peppers.
But CAUTION....this is a VERY Hot Sauce.
