Recipe: Cayenne Pepper Sauce

Ooh mm mm-hmm, yes, yes, this spicy hot kick it up a notch sauce is great on so many items. Just thinking about this on eggs or hamburgers makes my mouth water. Can you tell I am from the South? I don't eat hot sauce as much as I used to, but every now and then, I do indulge in it.

Cayenne Pepper is a great spice that has many natural health benefits. The first one is that it aids in digestion and works as an anti-irritant for our digestive system as it stimulates the flow of enzyme production. Also, it eases ulcers and upset stomachs. I understand there is a "common belief"  out there that cayenne pepper aids in or leads to gastric ulcers and, therefore, are told to limit the use of this spice; however, the active agent is capsaicin and that is a benefactor for ulcers not the culprit.

The second health benefit is that it helps to prevent blood clots. Blood clots are blockages in the arteries and blood vessels that limit blood flow through the circulatory system. The capsaicin in cayenne pepper helps to clear away artery- narrowing lipid deposits and dilates arteries and blood vessels to clear away clots.

This recipe has been passed around so much between family and friends that I am unsure of the originator of it, but thank you to them for such a wonderful recipe for a hot sauce.

Some items you will need are cayenne pepper, vinegar, garlic, salt, and garlic powder.

Add 18 cayenne peppers that have had the ends and stems removed, 1 1/2 cups white vinegar, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder into a saucepan and cook on medium until it comes to a boil.

Turn down heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and carefully pour in blender to puree until smooth.

Return to saucepan and simmer for another 15 minutes.
