  • 50 Serrano peppers
  • 6 cups white vinegar (adjust to your liking)
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons garlic


  • Slice the peppers in half and put them together with the garlic and salt in an appropriate-sized saucepan.
  • Add vinegar (6 cupsjust nicely covered my peppers).
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove pan from the heat and let it cool down.
  • Pour the mixture into your blender until smooth. As we’re making a salsa here, there’s no need to strain it. At this point, you can still adjust the flavors and heat by adding vinegar and/or salt.
  • Pour in a small glass bottle or other container, create a label, and you’ve just made some gifts for your friends, who will love you for it. You’re welcome.
