  • Homemade hot sauce see above ingredients using the method here
  • I used however much the hot sauce recipe makes. Approximately 2-3 cups
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 large tomato
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup ketchup heinz is preferred store brands use too much vinegar
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 4 tbs corn syrup
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs pickle juice
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  1. Next while my hot sauce was simmering I diced up 4 cloves of garlic, 1 small white onion and 1 large tomato. Next I melted 1 stick of butter in a sauce pan. Once the butter was completely melted I skimmed off the milk fat that floated to the top. Then I added the garlic, onion and tomato to the pan. I then simmered the ingredients for 10 minutes.
  2. Next I put the hot sauce and the butter mixture into the blender. I added a 1/2 cup of ketchup, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 4 tablespoons of corn syrup, 2 tablespo0ns of honey, 1 tsp of lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of pickle juice from a jar of pickles. I then blended it for 5 minutes.
  3. After blending the ingredients I placed it on a burner to simmer for 30 minutes. After this time I tested it for heat and sweetness. If you feel it needs either add more cayenne pepper powder or more corn syrup. A tip when testing. It starts off sweet but ends in heat. So don't add more cayenne until you wait for a minute after tasting.
  4. I then refrigerated it for 24 hours before using. I would recommend some resting time in the refrigerator so that it has time for the flavors to meld. Make sure to heat the sauce up before saucing the wings. If you do not, the sauce will immediately chill the wings and make them not as appetizing.
