Ron, this thread is here so everyone can share their favorite hot sauce recipe. I am the most interested in basic recipes because I am new to sauce making. I like hot sauce because it is a condiment. I like food that is spicy but not everyone likes spicy food. A condiment is something that is on the table but its optional. If you don't like it-pass it on to your houseguest. Because hot sauce is a condiment you can make your food as spicy as you like without ruining the meal for everyone else. The most important spice in the hot sauce is the pepper itself. This means that the sauce does not really have to be complex. The pepper, and the salt plus vinegar is pretty much the main ingredients. Feel free to post complex and unique sauces here if you like though. I have fond memory's of Louisiana hot sauce on fried chicken. That is what got me hooked on it. I really can't fathom eating fried chicken without good hot sauce. Here in Panama we have a special hot sauce made by a company called Congo. Its on the table in almost every dirty restaurant I have visited. Its slightly red and very watery and lacks flavor. It is terrible. Nothing like I am used to back home. I remember Crystal hot sauce back home. When I was in the Army I remember tobasco sauce, that was in every MRE. I remember going to Taco Bell and taking as many extra hot sauce packets as I could stuff in my pocket when I ate there. I am an addict. I admit it. I don't plan to stop either. Except now, I am making my own. And, it is better than those grocery store brands I used to use. So, feel free to post your recipe or your hot sauce story's right here on this thread.
