The making of “My Son’s Hot Sauce” with nummy results

My eldest son is a chef. A few years ago, he came up with an awesome recipe for hot sauce. He lives in Toronto and works at a busy restaurant there. But we’ve run out of his nummy hot sauce.

My wife is leaving the Federal Public Service next week and wanted to give out a few presents to colleagues. She came up with the idea of making and giving our son’s hot sauce as gifts. The side benefit would be that we’d have out own supply as well.

Let’s start with the ingredients:

Jalapenos, Granny Smith Apples, Crushed Chili Peppers, Smoked Paprika, Garlic, Red Wine Vinegar, Sea Salt and Black Pepper.

We cut up the apples and jalapenos and tossed everything into a big pot.

Set on the stove and cooked until ready.

Then put everything through the food processor

And then bottled and labeled.

We made just over 8 liters of sauce. Enough for my wife to give away and some for us to keep.

Yep, I applied directly to a steak overnight and now looking forward to cooking it today. Ohhh nummy stuff.

    Please convey to your son my outmost expresive THank you for the super YUMMY salsa you kindly shared with me.

    I tried it and the flavour (my God!) with the white wine and the superb balance of the ingredients is out of this world!!!.

    As far as I am concern there is no salsa in Mexico that I have tried or know of that compares with!! It is AMAZING!

    Supercongratulations to the Chef! and superThank you to his lovely parents that are very much dear to me !
    PS. Thank you for the recipe!
