Homemade Ghost Pepper Sauce Recipe

Let’s be honest nutrition facts are important but we do not use these kinds of sauces for our daily value, this is not a food supplement. But hold on, the exciting part is coming. We have talked about our ingredients for this sauce. Let’s create a recipe for our own homemade version of Ghost Pepper Sauce. Ghost Pepper Sauce Scoville will be different from the Scoville of this homemade recipe.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 bhut jolokia peppers/ ghost peppers, chopped
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes chopped (any local organic tomatoes works). The fructose level is important because of the balance of heat and sweetness. That is why we better use sweet tomatoes if it is possible.)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup tomato juice
  • 1/2 Roasted Garlic
  • Preheat your oven to 200° C
  • Cut your whole garlic into a half (crosswise). Put it on aluminum foil, season it with salt, cracked black pepper, and coriander seeds). Add some olive oil. After that wrap your aluminum foil like a garlic bag. It goes directly to our preheated oven. Let it roast for about 15 to 20 minutes. You definitely will know when it is ready. Your nose will know indeed.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add onions, make them sweat for a while, and add peppers. Stir them together.
  • Add tomatoes and stir. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Add vinegar, salt, and tomato juice. Simmer 20 minutes to allow flavors to develop.
  • Transfer contents to a food processor (do not forget our roasted garlic, peel them and transfer to a processor) and process until smooth.
  • Transfer to a container. Seal and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Extremely Hot Heat LevelDaves Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce is exceptionally hot, featuring famously hot Ghost Peppers plus pure pepper extract. Roasted garlic and a dash of salt and vinegar round out the flavor, making this bitingly hot sauce also tasty for those that can take the heat. We recommend using this sauce as a food additive, adding only a few drops of heat and flavor to your meals and not pouring it all over your food.

  • Add in the vinegar and salt. Process until you get a chunky mixture.
  • Add in a half cup of water and process again until the sauce starts to smooth out. Check it for thickness. If you’d like a thinner sauce, add in a bit more water a little at a time, processing, until you reach your desired consistency.
