How to Bottle Hot Sauce?

Hot sauce are usually served in glass sauce bottles. Glass bottles are safe for storing hot sauce because they are protected from heat. However, if you choose to store hot sauce in plastic bottles, you need to take precautions to avoid any heat damage. Heat can affect plastics, causing them to break down and become brittle. This can lead to leaks and spills. To prevent this, you should store hot sauce in a cool place, out of direct sunlight. Hot sauce stored in plastic containers should be kept in the refrigerator.

Many people make their own hot sauce, either for themselves or to sell to others. While they're generally healthier and tastier, properly bottling hot sauce can be tricky. So how do you bottle their hot sauce?

The Ways To Bottle Your Hot Sauce

1. Give your glass bottles or jars, utensils, and other equipment a hot bath, then let them dry completely.

2. Measure the pH of your sauce to make sure it's acidic enough. You can lower the pH with vinegar, lemon juice, or sugar.

3. If you are using glass containers and the sauces have a pH below 4.6, you should fill them hot. That means you should pour the sauce into the bottles at a temperature of 140 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit or 60 to 82 degrees Celsius, tighten the caps, and turn them upside down. The sauce's high heat helps pasteurize, and the upside down bottle allows the liquid to sterilize the cap. Make sure to leave a little head space on the top of the bottle.

4. You can also boil the bottle in hot water for ten minutes to prevent further fermentation. Place the bottle in a pot of boiling water (220 degrees Fahrenheit or 104 degrees Celsius) a few inches apart. Make sure the bottle is completely submerged. Remove the bottles and allow them to cool.

5. Seal your bottle properly. You can use an induction sealer to seal the bottle. There are also cap liners to keep your hot sauce from leaking.
