Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce


The City Palate Harvest September magazine edition is full of preserving recipes.  The Lacto fermented hot sauce can be used in stews, soups, taco or salad dressing, fresh or aged.  
I have always wanted to do this recipe and found that the new Italian Supermarket close to the house carried many varieties of peppers, from sweet to hot habanero.  The recipe calls for one pound of hot peppers and I used a pound of habanero peppers.



The peppers were washed and the stems removed.


Using a food processor, pulse the garlic and hot peppers until a coarse mixture.  Add honey.  

  Add salt and water



Transfer mixture to a quart jar and loosely screw on the lid. Let sit at room temperature for 4 days. Stir the mixture everyday.
