Just finished and packaged my fermented hot sauce. Mine used 75% jalapenos and 25% cherry peppers with 6% salt by weight of the peppers and just enough water to help the blender make a slurry. This was allowed to ferment 30 days and then whizzed up in the blender with 50% by volume white vinegar.
The color is yellowish-green, like bile. It smells of jalapenos and a funky, earthy, brett-like aroma. It tastes just like it smells- only a little hotter than expected with just the right amounts of salt and vinegar. Overall, what can I say? I love it! It burns but it's so interesting I can't keep my hands off it. Looking forward to the morning endorphin rush. Ahhhh-oooooo!
