"This is out of the July 2017 Cooking Light magazine. It says that a relatively brief fermentation technique gives this hot sauce a briny flavor. Use it on eggs, tacos, sandwiches, or grilled vegetables. Cooking time does not include fermenting time. Each serving is 2 teaspoons. This should make about 2 cups."
