What Is Louisiana Style Hot Sauce

Louisiana Hot Sauce is certainly one of the more popular hot sauce varieties here in the United States. It was originally made back in the 19th century with chiles fermented in large oak barrels. With its Southern roots, it’s brought Cajun dishes to life for decades! It’s made with simple ingredients, and generally has a mild-moderate kick, making it a great “everyday” hot sauce.

To Ferment Or Not To Ferment For Making Louisiana Hot Sauce

This is a big factor. Original Louisiana Hot Sauce is made with fermented peppers. Tabasco is famous for this. They ferment their peppers in oak barrels for up to 3 years before mixing the resulting mash with vinegar and salt. I have made Louisiana Hot Sauce with both fermented and fresh chili peppers and can tell you there is a noticeable difference in the final flavor.

Louisiana Hot Sauce made from fermented peppers is mellower and has more fully developed flavor.

That said, Louisiana Hot Sauce made from fresh peppers has a bit more bite to it, and doesnt take nearly as long to make. I encourage you to make it both ways and see which way you prefer.

Because of this, I am including both ways for you to make simple Louisiana Hot Sauce, with fermented peppers and fresh peppers.

How Long Will This Sauce Keep

It should keep a few months easily in the fridge, or even longer. It’s all about the acidity. Target level ph for shelf stable foods is below 4.6 ph, but should probably be lower for home cooks, around 3.5 or so, to account for errors. If you’re concerned, add more vinegar to lower the ph.

The best ph meters that I recommend are from Thermoworks. Get yourself a ph meter from Thermoworks today. I am a happy affiliate.

Which Vinegar Should I Use To Make Hot Sauce

This is the question with ANY hot sauce, as there are many choices, and each will compliment your chili pepper choice in different ways. Most common is Distilled White Vinegar, which is inexpensive and strong in flavor.

Use this if you are seeking to mimic the flavors of the larger commercial brands. White Wine Vinegar is a bit more mellow, and Rice Vinegar even more so, with a touch more sweetness.

Red Wine Vinegar is made from fermented red wine, which will introduce a slightly fruity flavor to your sauce.

Apple Cider Vinegar is quite fruity, and preferred for when youre seeking a fruity sweetness. Malt Vinegar has a strong, distinctive flavor from its barley ale beginnings, and well worth experimentation.

There are others to consider, such as balsamic vinegar, coconut vinegar, raisin vinegar and more. Experiment to your personal tastes.

How To Make Fermented Louisiana Hot Sauce

Fermented Louisiana Style Hot Sauce – TOO EASY!

Ingredients Needed

  • 1 pound red chili peppers , chopped
  • 1 quart unchlorinated water
  • ½-1 cup white wine vinegar to your preference

The Method

First, ferment the chili peppers. Chop the peppers then pack them into a jar, leaving at least 1 inch of head space. The peppers may rise a bit when fermenting.

Next, mix 1 quart unchlorinated water with 3 tablespoons sea salt. Pour just enough brine over the peppers to cover them, pressing them down a bit as you go. It is important to keep the peppers covered with brine to avoid spoilage. Check this daily.

Screw on the lid and set the jar away from direct sunlight to ferment for at least 1 week. Ideal temperatures are between 55-75 degrees F. The most active fermentation period is between 1-2 weeks, so be sure to monitor it during this time. Burp the jars often by unscrewing the lid a bit to let out some of the accumulating gases. Or, use an airlock or membrane for easier fermenting. See our page, How to Make Fermented Pepper Mash, for further instruction.

After 1-2 weeks, the fermenting activity will diminish and the brine will turn cloudy and taste acidic.

Pour the fermented peppers, including brine, into a pot along with the vinegar. Bring to a quick boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can strain out the fermented peppers and discard the brine, then boil the peppers with 1 cup vinegar and 1/2-1 teaspoon salt. Some people prefer to use the brine.
