How to Make Rio Grande Valley Pepper Vinegar
- Clean your used pepper sauce bottle with boiling water. Pack the rinsed chiles tightly in the bottle. Make sure your small chiles will fit in the opening. Note: Used Pepper sauce bottle from the store, cruet, or bottle with tall neck will do.
- Heat your vinegar in pot on low heat until it begins to steam. Pour hot vinegar carefully over the chiles to the top of bottle. I put the top on when cool.
- Allow the mixture to sit for a day before using. You can refill vinegar as needed. We only use the flavored vinegar. I usually refill a couple times and then start over. I leave out, but for safety you can refrigerate.
