How to make and can your own habanero hot sauce

I’ve finally got a bit of free time to catch up on my videos. I made this video in early November at my brother’s house in Harrisburg PA. He grows quite a bit of hot peppers and I suggested that we can up some hot sauce.

This sauce is excellent, don’t let the name fool you, it isn’t super hot. You could easily make this sauce hotter by adding in seeds from the peppers. I’ll let you decide that.

This is literally the first time I canned anything in my life, so hopefully you can all get a chuckle as I hold the jar lifter upside down and in general just goof off with my friends.

We learn a couple of skills in this video:

  • Canning via the hot water bath method
  • Saving seeds from pepper
  • How to make hot sauce (obviously)

Here is the link to the recipe I used: Bob’s Habanero Hot Sauce
