Recipe - Homemade Hot Sauce How To

From the Weston Kitchen


  • 1 pound grape tomatoes
  • 1 small Spanish onion
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 3 serrano peppers
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 teaspoons sugar


One thing's for sure: We love to make everything ourselves, from scratch. Hot sauce is no exception. This recipe is an all-star for people who love hot sauce - especially because it only takes four steps!

  1. Chop
    Roughly chop the tomatoes, peppers, onion, and garlic.
  2. Puree
    Attach the Salsa Screen to your Tomato Strainer and load with the chopped veggies. Turn the handle. Salsa will pour from the screen. Run the pulp from the waste chute back through 3-5 times, until only tomato skin comes from the chute.
  3. Simmer
    Place the salsa in a small pot with the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook down for one hour.
  4. Strain
    Pour the cooked down sauce into a Cone Stainer. Use the pestle to smash the pulp through the screen. The result will be a delicious hot sauce. You can use it right away - it's already spicy. It's good sealed in a jar, un-canned in the refrigerator for a week. You can also use a Canning Kit to seal up the jar and store in a cool, dry place for later.
