making homemade hot sauce - any tips, ideas, recipes?

My boyfriend is mad for hot sauce - puts it on everything and has many many bottles. I was thinking about trying to make some for him for christmas with his own label etc. Google and Chow searches dont really bring up much. Is that cause its rediculously difficult to make or just so easy no one wants to share! thanks

  1. I can't help you with a recipe, but please do make sure your wear protective gloves, a face mask to cover your mouth and nose and goggles for your eyes if you make a really fiery concoction.

    Google.....the type of peppers you intend to use and include *pepper sauce recipe* and *homemade*.. That should help you find a base to start from.

    1. I have made this several times. Best advice is use gloves and don't touch your face.
