Can you post a recipe maybe? Is this something like Tabasco? I was thinking about trying to smoke some Jalapenos this year and make some sauce, but I think Tabasco is fermented for three years or something so idk if I can get it to taste the same.

Embarassed My HPV is hot pepper vinegar. So easy to make.
I do it like the old folks down here taught me. Take a narrow necked bottle with an air tight seal. Clean it and cover it with boiling water for about a min. drain and stuff with destemed chillies, after cutting a slit in each one so the vinegar can get in. Fill with vinegar. I use apple cider but you can use what ever kind you like. Some heat the vinegar first, I don't. Store it in a cool dark place for a couple of weeks and there you have it. Great on greens and beans Twisted Evil .
Be carful not to burn yourself with the water, hot bottle, and chilies. Let the bottle cool before you stuff it with chilies.

Shannon, the recipe sounds great and I may try it if I get any hot peppers this year.

Just don't forget the gloves to protect you from hot pepper hands.

Yes indeed, I did not wear gloves but washed again, and again after sliting peppers. I love this stuff and make gift bottles too, very popular stuff in this neck of the woods.

Oh ok, this is similar to what I did last year to preserve my jalapenos. The only difference was that I did half vinegar, half water, some salt, black peppercorns, and coriander (according to a recipe I found), and sliced the jalapenos up. It worked really well; I still have a couple jars left that have preserved out in the garage just fine! And I use the "juice" in salsa and guacamole and stuff. I think I'll try it your way this time, with full vinegar! Thanks for the info.

I read once somewhere that there was an old Central America civilization that actually used the capsaicin from hot peppers as a poltacee to cure STD's sexually transmitted diseases. Wonder what the scoville rating of that stuff was, more perspective on wearing skin protection.

Well I know that the first time I jarred the jalapenos I didn't wear gloves and I wasn't careful about them getting on my hands, and my hands didn't stop burning until I woke up the next morning! It was not a pleasant experience at all. O.o

Nice pic Hieron Remade makes me real hungry for jalopeno's. For variety I add baby onions, chunked carrots, cauliflower, celery and garlic to the mix. The only time peppers ever bother me is when I next rub my eyes and with severe allergies that is a constant temptation.

Can't stress the gloves enough!!! I made Garlic Onion Pepper Jelly last year and I did not use gloves after I cut, oh I'd guess, 3 lbs of peppers of various types, and the pain was terrible.

I read once somewhere that there was an old Central America civilization
that actually used the capsaicin from hot peppers as a poltacee to cure
STD's sexually transmitted diseases. Wonder what the scoville rating of
that stuff was, more perspective on wearing skin protection.

That sounds like something that would make a good punishment for pedophiles. LOL

They have yet to invent adequate punishment for those vermin. If they ever do this could be a leniency for a special holiday say halloween. Oh weren't we supposed to be discussing HPV, lol.

I like the pepper corn idea. I forgot to say you can just keep refilling the bottle with new vinegar when it runs low. Wink

My DH was separating seeds from Aji Amarillo chilis from Peru so I could dry them and then germinate them. He washed his hands five times, then wiped his sweaty brow and eyes.

Oh My Goodness, you would have thought his eyes were going to fall out of his head Twisted Evil

Those evil peppers tried to blind the poor guy when he was just trying to help me.
