make tabasco

The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

The original was an anerobic fermentation of crushed peppers, similar to a saurkraut. Half-a-cup of salt to a gallon of crushed red peppers. Allow to ferment for a month, and mix the strained liquor with white wine vinegar. Details taken from Salt by Mark Kurlansky.
