How to Make Homemade Sriracha Hot Sauce
How to Make Homemade Sriracha Hot Sauce
If you count yourself a sriracha fanatic, it's high time you tried making the rooster sauce at home. Not only are the results fantastic, but it's also a fun introduction to fermenting - think of it as a science project of sorts - and, you'll be set if the srirachapocalypse rears its ugly head once more.


  • 3/4 lbs red jalapeños (stems removed)
  • 1/2 lbs green jalapeños (stems removed)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar


  • Modify the heat however you like.  Take out some of the seeds or leave them in.  Take them all out if you want.  That's where the heat is.
  • Add more garlic if you like it stronger.
  • Xanthan Gum is a thickening agent (stabilizer).  It's up to you if you wish to add it.  You can find recipes online and YT that go either way.  Some use it and some don't.
