Tabasco-like Recipe

I thought for Sure I had already posted this recipe here, but I bought peppers today, and came looking for the recipe to make tabasco-like sauce, and it wasn't here! So here it is....because I need it where I can find it. :) Tabasco-like sauce, second recipe

Homemade Tabasco Style Sauce Because the chiles are not aged in oak barrels for three years, this will be only a rough approximation of the famous McIlhenny product. You will have to grow your own tabascos or substitute dried ones that have been rehydrated. Other hot, fresh red chile peppers can be substituted for the tabascos. Ingredients: 1 pound fresh red tabasco peppers, chopped 2 cups distilled white vinegar 2 teaspoons salt Directions: Combine the chiles and the vinegar in a saucepan and heat. Stir in the salt and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cool, and place in a blender. Puree until smooth and place in a glass jar. Allow to steep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Remove, strain the sauce, and adjust the consistency by adding more vinegar if necessary.

Dry Milk Powder

It seems like my milk packages always tell only how to reconstitute huge amounts at a time, like how to make a gallon of milk.  Since I usually use my dry milk to cook with when I'm out of regular milk, I Never need to make an entire gallon. 

I found this handy little chart online - Yay!  I'll never have to guess (wrongly, generally) again how much powder to add to my water! :)

Salad Dressings

I'm trying to lose weight, because my blood pressure has been up. I enjoy eating salads, but can't stand only having oil and vinegar dressings, so I searched for easy, homemade dressings that won't have hoards of additives.


I found these two that sounded like what I was after:
Ranch dressing and Thousand Island dressing ....here's hoping they're as good as they sound! :)

VERY Helpful Site!

I came across this site today:

Hillbilly Housewife ....awesome resources for those trying to save money!


She even has a worcestershire sauce recipe! I've searched high and low for a good, easy, worcestershire sauce recipe, because I haven't been able to find one without HFCS at any local stores.

Woo-Hoo! ;)
