My dad is visiting me from New York and I am running low on the pepper sauce I brought back to Denver when I visited him in New York last summer. So naturally I asked him to teach me how to make it and of course I recorded it so my extended family (you) can learn how to make it too. My dad’s pepper sauce is so simple but so yummy and I can’t get enough of it. Pepper sauce is what Guyanese and Caribbean people call hot sauce. We love a little kick of spice with our food and you can find a jar of pepper sauce on kitchen tables across the Caribbean.
Before we jump into this recipe I wanted to share that I recently got added to Feedspot’s list of the top 50 blogs to follow in Denver! I’m number 30 but was so honored to be on this list a long with amazing blogs like Visit Denver and 5280 magazine. These are blogs with hundreds of thousands of followers. I am trying to spread Guyanese food and culture to the world and maybe one day I’ll be in the top 10 blogs to follow in Denver (fingers crossed).
Making Pepper Sauce with my dad:
I made a quick video while I was making the pepper sauce. My dad was sitting besides me giving me instructions but did not want to be in the video. As he puts it, his hands are old and shaky. My dad is hilarious but really modest. I love having my dad’s pepper sauce with pholourie and now I’m in the mood for some hot homemade pholourie. Have you ever made pholourie?
