Home-Made Sriracha Sauce

So I found this recipe and it produces results that are pretty much just like Sriracha, but with less salt and much more of a fresh taste. If the chillis are in season, you can prob make a gallon of this for the same price as buying a bottle. Give it a try and see if it fits your fancy.

Sriracha, the Sauce of SaucesSriracha, the Sauce of Sauces

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound Red Fresno Chillis
  • 6 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup White Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar

Directions:

  • Place the mixture and sugar in small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Transfer to a blender and puree for about 5 minutes, until a smooth, orange-red mixture forms. If you don’t like a thicker sauce, you can strain the puree to get it as thin as possible.
  • Once refrigerated, the sauce should have the same consistency and texture as Sriracha, but less salty and a whole lot fresher tasting!

Siracha Powder

So I just seen this technique to make your own Sriracha powder.  Basically it’s just dehydrating the Sriracha until it clumps together and then you can crush it up to give you a super intense powder that goes well on top of everything.  It does get very spicy as all the water is removed from the sauce leaving it extremely concentrated.

Anesthesia / Pulling Teeth Bass Tab

Anesthesia by Metallica Bass Tab

So Whenever this song comes on I can't help but feel like jamming out along with 
it. Cliff was an amazing bassist that really did get snuffed out before he was
able to really shine.  Here's one of the best metal songs played for bass guitar.

The SuperBowl Sniper Nest

I just seen these pics when I was browsing around all the different SuperBowl posts and links online. These are just awesome, to think that the whole half of the field was scanned with one of these big caliber bad boys and they didn’t even notice. There’s always snipers at any event with as many people, especially celebrities and politicians, like the SB. Just something to make you think…

While I’m on the subject of Superbowl foods, here’s another recipe that I will be whipping up for tomorrow.  This is great because it’s still a toothpick snack but it fills you up like a main meal.

Jalapeno Parmesan Cheese Dip

Here’s a Jalapeno Parmesan Cheese Dip that I plan on making to snack on for the Superbowl. I seen a recipe online while looking for ideas that blended parmesan and jalapeno and decided that a spicy, white cheese dip would be something different from the “nacho cheese” style that is normally done with jalapenos.
