    List of Ingredients

    ◦ pound red chiles (such as Fresno, Holland, or jalapeo)
    ◦ 1 clove garlic, peeled
    ◦ 1 tablespoon kosher salt
    ◦ cup distilled white vinegar
    ◦ cup fresh lime juice
    ◦ 2 teaspoons sugar

    Special equipment:
    ◦ 1 layer of cheesecloth


    Pulse chiles, garlic, and salt in a food processor to a fine paste. Transfer to a glass jar; cover with cheesecloth and secure with a rubber band. Let sit at room temperature 5 to 7 days to ferment (the longer it sits, the more pronounced the flavor will be).

    Transfer chile mixture to a blender; add vinegar, lime juice, and sugar and pure until smooth. Transfer to a clean jar, cover with cheesecloth, and secure with rubber band. Let sit at room temperature at least 2 days and up to 5 days to ferment more.

    Transfer hot sauce to blender and blend again, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean jar. Cover and chill.

    Makes about 1 cup

    ❧ Do Ahead:
    Hot sauce can be made 6 months ahead. Keep chilled.
