Prepare tomato as described under Fresh Tomatoes. Place all ingredients into a food processor and puree until smooth. Place puree into a microwaveable glass measuring cup and add vinegar to make 5 ounces. Microwave until mixture starts to steam. Remove from oven and mix well. Return to oven and heat again. Stir mixture and bottle as described under Hot Pack Instructions.

Fresh Tomatoes To remove the excess moisture and seeds from fresh tomatoes, cut the tomato in half across it's middle leaving a the stem on one half. Hold the half with the skin side up and gently squeeze the liquid and seeds out. If you wish to remove the skin, place the seeded tomatoes into boiling water for 3 minutes. The skin will loosen and peel right off. Seeded tomatoes can also be roasted just like peppers. Roasting also removes more moisture. The best substitute for fresh tomato is canned tomato juice. Hot Pack Instructions This is the most important step in the process. Your hot sauce must be properly canned in order to assure freshness, flavor and shelf life. The procedure is the same as you would use for canning tomatoes. Your hot sauce bottles must be clean before starting. Wash them with soap and water and rinse them thoroughly. Do not wash the caps with the white paper seal inside them. If the paper seal gets wet it will be ruined. The seal will sanitize itself later in the process. Place a wire rack on the bottom of a pot of boiling water. Place the bottles on the rack making sure they are completely full of water. Let them boil for at least 5 minutes. When you are ready to pack your sauce, remove a bottle from the boiling water with tongs and drain out the water. Your sauce should also be at the boiling point. Hold the bottle with a dry towel and fill it with sauce using a measuring cup to help you pour. Place the dropper cap on the bottle and screw the cap on tight. Turn the bottle upside down for 10 minutes. This will sanitize the lid. Let bottles cool completely before refrigerating.
