This is my house hot sauce. I got this recipe off the Internet somewhere, so I can't take credit for it. This has allot of heat and goes well on most everything. Enjoy!

1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped onions
5 cloves garlic, minced
6 habanero peppers, stems removed
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tbsp lime zest
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tomato
sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the carrots, oil, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until soft, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor. Add the habanero peppers, water, lime juice, vinegar, tomato and lime zest to the blender/processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, transfer the mixture to a saucepan and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Simmering at the end gives the sauce a more liquid consistency.

Alright... Found the recipe... Those of you that look at the recipe and think it will be too sweet, that is not really the case. It's very balanced. between the fruit, vegetal pepper flavor, sugar, and vinegar. If you are afraid it will be too sweet then cut back on the sugar.

Peach/pineapple habanero sauce...
Makes about 6 cups or so...
1 large can sliced peaches in juice, not syrup
1 small can pineapple chunks
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp minced garlic
1 medium white onion, diced
2 jalapenos, cored and seeded
15-18 habaneros, cored and seeded
4TBS sugar
1/4C cider vinegar
1/4-1/2C water

In a large saucepan, (big enough to hold all contents), lightly oil the pan and saute the onions, garlic, habs, and japs till onions are translucent, then add peaches and pineapple (both with juice), along with rest of ingredients. Simmer uncovered for maybe 20 min (VENTILATION OF THE KITCHEN IS KEY!!! Or cook outside). Cool batch enough to safely put in the blender. You can blend it till its perfectly smooth or leave it kinda chunky. We leave it kinda chunky but whatever works. Bottle using whatever method you are comfortable. I normally give it a week before I start using it regularly, but the flavor changes slightly over time.

Doesn't look "too sweet" to me! Habeneros go very well with fruit! I've made a Habenero hot sauce that had mango and peach in it. Turned out awesome. I'm not always in the mood for a rich hot sauce, so I don't make something like that very often. However, that goes great on hot wings, taco salad, and in a chicken marinade. Thanks for sharing!

I have a simple recipe I make:

4 habañeros
2 red bell peppers ( 3/4 pound), roughly chopped
5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.

Simmer until soft (may need to add more vinegar). Then purée.

This is what I love about hot sauce....

It's impossible to botch a recipe so long as you have the key ingredients present and enough acidic additions to keep the pH low enough to preserve it!

Man, these look great fellas! I've never tried.making hot sauce, but these sound too good not to try. I'll be at the grocery store this weekend for sure! I have tried making a wing sauce...honey jalapeño. A local joint has it as a wing sauce. Its stellar and I can't seem to replicate it.

Any reason to use dried peppers instead of fresh? Since you mention simmering it, it probably isn't to kill any nasties the peppers may have.

I'm going to have some ghost peppers, Scotch bonnets, Trinidad scorpions and Carolina reapers in my garden this year. Not sure yet what I plan to do with them beyond drying and powdering a bunch.

They're available year round as dried. You rehydrate with a soak in boiling water before making it.

I usually end up with about 5 gallons of Habenaro's every summer and I am a big fan of this:

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/bobs-ha...--liquid-fire/

I also do a smoked pepper sauce. Basically smoke a 5 gallon bucket or more of peppers..... mainly red bells, or red sweet peppers.... but also about 25-35% cayenne, red jalapeno, red Habenaro, etc. Then, after a couple hours on the smoker throw it in a blender, boil it down with vinegar, water and salt. Can it - basically a great pepper sauce (salsa like) for eggs, pastas, meatloaf, fish, etc.
