Homemade Tabasco®-Style Sauce

Thursday, 12 November 2009

Description

The U.S.A. has become one of the world's largest producers of hot sauces 
and the flagship of the hot sauce fleet is Tabasco®, which is exported
all over the world from Avery Island, Louisiana. Because the chiles in
mash form are not aged in oak barrels for three years, this recipe will
be only a rough approximation of the famous McIlhenny product. You will
have to grow your own tabascos or substitute dried ones that have been
rehydrated. Other small, hot, fresh red chiles can also be substituted
for the tabascos. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
