We use a large quantity of spicy hot ingredients in our meals, so last year I decided to add cayenne peppers to my pepper garden. I just wasn't sure how I wanted to use them. The trick to making food with significant heat is the ability to control the amount of heat in the finished product. No one wants an unpleasant shock and it's just plain disappointing when the heat is insufficient.
I decided that rather than adding the cayennes to any of my dishes directly, I'd develop a hot sauce recipe we like. Here's the basic method I used - you can adapt to suit your taste. Another excellent reason for growing hot peppers is that they are really lovely in the garden.
