When shopping for the Sriracha sauce ingredients, you can find most of what you need at your local supermarket, and you can also order everything online if that is easier for you. You will need to get the following:
- One pound of red jalapeno peppers with the stems removed
- Half a pound of serrano peppers with the stems removed
- One third of a cup of water
- Four cloves of peeled garlic
- Half a cup of distilled white vinegar
- One tablespoon of kosher salt
- Three tablespoons of light brown sugar
Once you have everything from the supermarket, you can start making your homemade Sriracha sauce.
The Steps For Making Sriracha Sauce
Step One: Put the serrano peppers, jalapeno peppers, water, salt, brown sugar, and garlic into a blender, and mix it until it is smooth.
Step Two: Transfer the mixture into a large glass jar or similar container, and place this in a cool and dark spot, leaving it for three to five days. Once a day, give the mixture a good stir, and it will start to bubble and ferment.
Step Three: Once the mixture is finished fermenting, transfer it back into the blender and then add the vinegar and blend until it is smooth. Then strain the mixture through a sieve to remove the pulp and put it into a saucepan.
Step Four: Heat the mixture over medium heat for around five to ten minutes and reduce it until it is the desired consistency.
Step Five: Let the mixture cool to room temperature, which will also make it thicken slightly, and transfer it to a glass jar or bottle and store it in the fridge.
You now have delicious homemade Sriracha sauce that you can have on all sorts of foods and making a fresh batch once a month will mean you never run out of it.
