In a previous post, I stated how excited I was that I finally got some habaneros from my plant at home. But there is something I didn't realize about these plants and that is they produce A LOT of peppers at one time. So with 30 peppers in my fridge, the obvious question came about....What the hell do I do with 30 habanero peppers? I don't even care for spice food that much. But fortunately I have friends who do, so I decided to make some hot sauce.
12 habanero peppers, seeded and chopped
1 (15.5 ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup
1/2 c dark molasses
1/4 c. yellow mustard (the original recipe calls for 1/2 cup but after reading the reviews of how strong the mustard taste was, I cut it down)
1 cup distilled white vinegar
2 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1. Removed seeds from the habaneros and chop.
2. Mix everything in a blender or food processor.
3. Pour into containers and let it set for about 8 hours in the fridge.
This stuff kind of reminds me of the "Wake Up Juice" in Back to the Future 3 used to wake up Doc after he passed out in a bar after one shot of whiskey. Anyways...the recipe is quick and easy. A few tips...use gloves when cutting the peppers to avoid spice burn. And wash your hands thoroughly! I washed my hands after and but apparently still had some juice on my hands. I then rubbed my eye which was a mistake! My eye burned for 30 minutes!
Original Recipe. Thanks Bob!
