If you’ve never made your own hot sauce before, this recipe for green sriracha sauce is a great starting point. It’s incredibly simple and comes together in no time.
What Makes Green Sriracha Sauce Special?
When you think of sriracha sauce, you probably picture that iconic bottle with a green lid. It’s a Thai chili sauce made from peppers, sugar, garlic, vinegar, and salt.
The recipe below for green sriracha sauce, on the other hand, uses jalapeno peppers instead of red chilis. This gives it a slightly less spicy flavor while still providing that delicious kick. You can use it in the same way you would use red sriracha sauce.
Why Cook Your Green Sriracha Sauce?
While many homemade hot sauces are raw, this recipe calls for cooking the sauce. This gives it a smoother texture and a more subtle flavor.
Cooking the peppers helps to mellow out the heat, allowing the peppery taste to shine through. It does take a bit more time, but trust me, it’s worth it if you’re a hot sauce lover like me.
How to Make Green Sriracha Sauce
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Just add all the ingredients to your blender and puree until you have a smooth mixture.
Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and simmer for just five to 10 minutes. And voila! You have homemade hot sauce!
If you prefer a smoother texture, you can use an immersion blender at this point or let the sauce cool before transferring it back to the blender for another round. Just be sure not to put piping hot sauce in your blender to avoid any accidents.
Substitutions for the Recipe
With only five ingredients, there isn’t much room for substitutions. However, there are a couple of options if you want to switch things up.
If you can’t find jalapenos, you can use other hot green peppers like Serranos. Poblano peppers will also work, giving you a milder sauce. Just remember to cut them into chunks before measuring since they are larger.
As for the brown sugar, you can replace it with raw sugar or any other granulated sweetener in the same amount. Keep in mind the intensity of the sweetener you choose.
For example, if you opt for stevia instead of brown sugar, you’ll need to use a lot less – about half the amount.
While I don’t recommend replacing the apple cider vinegar, you can use unseasoned rice vinegar or white wine vinegar if necessary. Red wine vinegar will also work flavor-wise, but it may affect the sauce’s appearance.
How to Store Green Sriracha Sauce
Once you’ve made your green sriracha sauce, it will keep well in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. Just make sure to store it in an airtight glass container to maintain its freshness.
If you’d like to freeze the sauce, transfer it to a freezer-safe container. It will stay good in the freezer for up to six months.
