This Green Pepper Hot Sauce is milder than most red Louisiana style hot sauces because the peppers used are milder. If you want it spicier, add spicier peppers like cayenne, serrano, and habanero.
All varieties of peppers are excellent sources of vitamins A and C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. Hot peppers are loaded with capsaicin, a chemical compound with strong antioxidant properties. The hotter the pepper the more capsaicin. Scientists are studying the effects of capsaicin to fight everything from the common cold to cancer. While they figure that out I am just going to enjoy the taste and sinus-clearing effects.
A few warnings when preparing this Green Pepper Hot Sauce :
- Wear gloves when cutting the peppers to avoid burning your hands then scrub your hands before proceeding
- Have proper ventilation unless you want your house smelling like vinegar and hot peppers for days (I made mine outside)
- Let the pressure in the pressure cooker drop naturally, no quick release for safety.
