This is a simple pepper sauce and relish I make once the farmers markets start rolling out the spicier peppers.

Todays blend is roughly a medium for me and I use it in a variety of applications from mild Chili's, stews, scrambled eggs, as a relish on a burger or sausage, and even in small quantities in dressings.

  • 3 tablespoon toasted onion flakes
  • 1 Head of Elephant Garlic
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  1. Instructions:
  2. Clean the peppers of seeds and the ribs and place in blender of choice. I use my Ninja juice blender for this.
  3. Clean the head of elephant garlic and add to pepper
  4. Put in two handfuls roughly of toasted onion flakes (to flavor)
  5. Put in white vinegar to liquid fill line if using a blender, or to cover if using a food processor
  6. Blend/process until it looks like a relish. Usually less then a minute depending on machine.

So I save up bottles that have re-closable lids for this for my home use. Make sure they are clean.
I typically like an 8 or 16 oz bottle. This can be potent stuff for most people and I personally do not try and keep a batch longer then 6 months. With the vinegar it may be theoretically last longer, but I like making fresh every year, and I save some peppers in freezer for a batch off season.
What I like to do so that it's not too watery is to use a fine mesh sieve and separate the vinegar and the 'pulp'
Pulp goes in a small 8 oz or 16 oz container. This will look like a fine relish. Pack well and then cover with some of the vinegar.
The vinegar with all the awesome heat and flavor I save in a jar appropriate to amount 32oz typically. I can use this vinegar for a wide variety of applications including salad dressings. Not as spicy as the pulp but great flavor.
