Have extra hot peppers sitting around?

Hot pepper vinegar is easy to make and looks beautiful in the kitchen. And, best of all, it lasts a long time. It’s a southern dining table staple, often found next to salt and pepper and providing a mellow spice to many a meal.

Hot pepper vinegar is the simplest form of hot sauce, just peppers and vinegar (with a few simple extras). So you can enjoy it on any dish that could use a dab of heat. It’s also terrific with salad greens, both raw and wilted, and let’s just say it’s killer on french fries. Any skinny chili pepper will work, but we think serranos are the perfect heat and shape.

This is the perfect recipe to use up those extra chili peppers left over from harvest. If that’s the case, be sure to also check out our jalapeño infused olive oil which is another great “extra pepper” recipe.

Feel free to use different hot peppers to vary the heat. Habaneros work very well for a major heat bump.
