DIY Hot Sauce

  • Eden Hall Campus, Dairy Barn Cafe 6035 Ridge Road Gibsonia, PA, 15044 United States (map)

Explore the spicy world of pepper preserves and pickles as we make and taste multiple different types of hot sauce. Using locally sourced peppers, we will discuss the fundamentals of flavor building and the framework on which to create a tantalizing universe of spicy tastes.

Participants will learn about the different kinds of hot sauce bases, the variety in flavor profile of peppers, and just how much spice they can handle! Each participant will leave the class with three different bottles of their own personally-crafted hot sauces, recipes, and the knowledge to make more hot sauce at home. Casual to "Can't Get Enough" Pepperheads welcomed!
