Homemade Habanero Hot Sauce
Lots of Habaneros in the garden now, so I made a batch of hot sauce yesterday. This is my version of Rick Bayless recipe for Habanero Sauce I saw him make on his show, its very good and very hot.
12 orange Habanero peppers, washed seeded (use gloves!)
6 cloves garlic unpeeled
1 large onion chopped
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup baby carrots chopped
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup water
In a frying pan, dry toast the unpeeled garlic cloves till blackened about 15 minutes. Let cool and peel, set aside.
In a pot, add vinegar, water, habaneros, onion, and cook partially covered 15 minutes till carrots soft.
Blenderize with garlic, salt, sugar and extra water if too thick.
Since I can't find any hot sauce bottles, I put them in jelly jars and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. If I make 12 jars, I have enough in the cupboard for the year! Keep refrigerated if not canning.
