Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

  1. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  2. COMBINE garlic and salt in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. HEAT vinegar to a boil in a large saucepan. Add sugar, stirring to fully dissolve. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add garlic mixture and hot pepper flakes, stirring well.
  4. LADLE hot sauce into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight.
  5. PROCESS in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.
Quick Tip: If you prefer less heat, adjust the amount of hot pepper flakes to suit your taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have not made this exact recipe however... it is very similar to the habanero jelly I make, i.e., fresh peppers vs flakes. My family goes thru it like crazy as well and I have made mine in pint jars with no problem. Also, the ? about longevity. I come from a farming family from WAY back. I have opened Apple butter jelly that I know had to be 25 yrs old and it was delish. If you can stuff properly (very important) than you really shouldn't have to worry about anything that has tons of vinegar (great preservative). I don't think I would use that statement tho when talking about green beans or stuff that is not high in acid. You can usually look at a jar of any kind of canned food and if there is no discoloration, smell, and I'm sure lots of other signs it is probably fine. I grew up on family preserved fruits and veggies and I have never had food poisoning period in 55+ yrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good when freshly made, too! We wanted to try the recipe before committing to a batch, so we made 1/8th of the recipe. We simmered an additional 10 minutes (because it wasn't being processed in a hot water bath), let it cool a bit, then strained it through a fine strainer. The result? A lovely, golden, spicy syrup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Mae Ploy sauce but runnier This is a great recipe! I love Mae Ploy sweet chili dipping sauce and thought I would give this a try... I was not disappointed! The flavor is almost the same but the sauce has no thickening agent, maybe the recipe could be modified to make the sauce thicker with gelatin? I have made threee batches thus far, I also use this sauce as a vegetable marinade for banh mi sandwiches and as a salad dressing. I would also like to know if it is safe to use larger jars because I just go through this stuff too quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety I think you should respond to people that when you say a half pint (8oz) jar and they are using pint jars that this could be a safety issue. Recipes are tested for a certain size jar. You can go lower but not larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe. How long would it last if not opened and when opened?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut up avocado, onion, cucumber, tomato and add this sauce to it. You will never use store bought salsa again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and easy! I made this sauce last year. I used pint jars instead of jelly jars, because I did not have jelly jars on hand. I used it for salad dressing as well as dipping sauce. I also added Greek yogurt to make creamy salad dressing (about 2 tbs of sauce and 1 tbs Greek yogurt mixed together). I even had friends rave about it, on friend even said I should be selling this sauce it is so good. am getting ready to make another batch today. Super easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand!
