Cayenne pepper sauce is a hot, spicy condiment that can be used to add culinary heat to chicken wings and other appetizers. A dash of cayenne pepper sauce will also liven up scrambled eggs or give a Bloody Mary a jolt. You can grow the peppers in your garden or find them at a produce stand or in the grocery store, then try making your own cayenne pepper sauce at home.

  • Rubber gloves
  • 1 lb. cayenne pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 slice onion
  • 1 ½ tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 can diced tomato (28 oz.)
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 7 oz. of water
  • Knife
