Do you love a little bit of spice? I do! ?? Although I don’t love super spicy, I do love a touch of flavor in every dish. This Tropical Pineapple Hot Sauce is a perfect addition to any dish because it adds a little bit of sweet in it’s delicious flavor.
This Tropical Pineapple Hot Sauce is the perfect recipe when getting started with hot sauces. It’s easy to make and it’s easy to bottle. The most important part is that you must always start with sterilized hot sauce bottles.
So let’s get to making it! Hot sauce can be made with whole fresh spices and it can be made with powdered spices too. The trick with powdered spices is that you will want to cook them a bit longer to remove the texture. The good news is using this pineapple and the fresh juices will help with the texture of dried spices a lot!
When making this hot sauce just blend all your spices together and add them to a saucepan. Of course a saucepan and stovetop is best when you are serious about cooking. But this is a recipe that you could make over a campfire while camping or even with a microwave if you don’t have access to a stove. Look no one has a right to tell you about your creative process! ?
Thai Chile or Birdseye Chile is a fairly hot spice, so if you like milder flavors, cut the amount of this chile in half. Once your ingredients are blended together, heat for around 30 minutes and until the ingredients are well blended.
Hot sauce should always be bottled warm while the sterilized bottle is still warm too. You may need to carefully funnel the sauce in. Once it’s bottled, this will keep for several months at room temperature but once opened should be kept in the fridge.
