I'm going to try making hot sauce this weekend, since my club's meeting tonight saw a huge amount (well huge for the UK) of chiles and peppers brought in by one member and given to everyone, and I have lots of cider vinegar.

You guys inspired me to do it!

I want to say the rule of thumb is to use salt equal to 1.5% of the vegetables.  But I just eyeball it and add it to taste (a bit salty).  And of course, use non-iodized salt.
By the way, that should be 1.5% by weight.

I'm going to have to make some more hot sauce soon. :)

Salt to taste.
