Sriracha Hot Sauce

We grew peppers this year. Bushel of Fire, Black Pearl, and Gypsy Peppers. The Bushel of Fire peppers are like a small Thai pepper (2″ long maximum) and the Gypsy peppers (very firm, 3″ long) are like mild spicy pepper crossed with a mild yellow or orange bell pepper. Both of these plants had peppers that were ready for picking. I didn’t have the peppers to make my other style of hot sauce, so decided to make a sriracha sauce instead. I think due to the Thai-style peppers it ended up being an insanely hot sriracha. Flavorful, but potent, and a good use of the almost two cups of peppers I had.
