ANYONE CAN BUY A decent bottle of hot sauce. But even if you’re convinced that your wings are the best in town, they’re not really yours if you slather them with a mass market condiment. Carmellini has concocted a multi chile formula that’s so versatile you’ll want to keep michael kors canada a bottle parked on your kitchen table at all times. “It tastes great on anything, from raw oysters to scrambled eggs,” he says.

1. Choose your peppers
For the best depth, you want a mixture of fresh peppers in a range of heat levels, says Carmellini. Look for a combo of at least four peppers, with a total weight of 1 1/2 to 2 pounds. Mix and match these to suit your heat tolerance level. Carmellini uses a red bell pepper, two Anaheims, a poblano, and four jalapenos. Bell
2. Char the

JUST ENOUGH SMOKE: Broiling some (not all) of the chilies adds the right level of char.

In a large stock pot, combine the chopped chilies with 1 cup cider vinegar, 1/3 cup chopped onion, 1 chopped garlic clove, 1 Tbsp honey, 2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/3 tsp ground coriander, and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a simmer on medium high and cook, stirring occasionally, until the peppers are tender, about 1 hour.
