18 fresh Cayenne peppers (ends & stems removed)
1 1/2 c white vinegar
2 t minced garlic
1 t salt
1 t garlic powder
Measure all the ingredients into a small saucepan, heat over medium heat until boiling, reduce the heat slightly, but so the mix continues to boil and simmer about 20 – 25 min. Remove from heat, carefully pour into a blender and puree until thick and smooth. Transfer back into the saucepan and simmer another 15 min.
If using canned peppers: In a blender add 18 peppers, 1 c vinegar, garlic, salt and garlic powder, cover and puree until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 min.
Note: This has better flavor if the flavors are allowed to marry overnight in the fridge, but if not, it still makes great hooters sauce!
