Franks Red Hot Sauce

Don't know how many people from this forum likes the stuff but I cant find any for sale in Switzerland unles I pay a fortune in shipping fees.

This post is for anyone interested in making their own, i have found a recipe that tastes very very similar and it's a lot thicker too!

1. Go to Denner, buy yourself a jar of Vitaminka ADJVAR (scharf)
2. Put about a third of the jar into a blender and blend well.
3. Add about half a bottle of Amoy chilli sauce (you can get this from either Coop or Migros) and blend again
4. Add half a tablespoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, blend again and Hey Presto!! a nice thick version of Franks Red Hot Sauce!!

I only wrote this thread because i love hot wings and this is pretty much the best sauce you can get IMHO.

Hope someone out there can find this useful

Re: Franks Red Hot Sauce

Thanks for the recipe. However, as a heat freak I usually prefer something hotter than what one can get at the Migros of Coop, I therefore go to El Maiz in Zürich behind the Hauptbahnhof on the Josefstrasse. It's a Mexican mini supermarket and they have a HUGE selection of (insanely, crazy, demented) hot sauces. Sauces with names such as "Vicious Viper", "Liquid Lava", "Pain 100%" and "Daves Ultimate Insanity". Check it out!

Right on! Now I know where to get Mad Dog 357. I assume most of these are Mexican hot sauces. Frank's Red Hot is Louisiana style, isn't it? Do you notice a difference between the styles? The Louisiana style is a bit more vinegary, while the mexican style has roasted or additional flavors.

I think the hottest hot sauce I've ever had was from Jamaica. I was told it was 5 times hotter than habanero.

BTW lee1000, do you soak the wings into the sauce after cooking, or do you marinate the wings prior to cooking? I assume they are baked, right?

I love habanero peppers! Nice 'n hot. What's the Scoville rating on that sauce? The hottest sauce I ever had is sitting in my fridge (too lazy to get up and check the name). A Nepali friend bought it back from India and it's insanely hot, but the heat quickly dissipates, brilliant stuff.

I didn't even know such a rating existed. I have a friend in L.A. who collects hot sauces. He has hundreds of bottles in his kitchen. One night, we decided to trip on them. It was hilarious. Believe it or not, there are stores in L.A. dedicated to nothing but hot sauce.

I thought habaneros were the hottest a hot sauce can go. What is the nepalese sauce made of?

Re: Franks Red Hot Sauce

I just learned that the Naga Jolokia can be 2 to 10 times hotter than the Habanero.

No idea. It's called Poora Peero, made in India, the peppers are Tepin peppers which supposedly is hotter than Scotch Bonnet. I once made a large pot of curry and put one teaspoon of this stuff in it and it blew my head off... in a good way. I've had Habanero sauces that were nowhere near as spicy as this stuff.

ps. you can also buy pure capsaicin but that is just insanity...
