A ridiculously spicy and simple hot sauce made from habanero peppers.
I love habaneros. Yeah, they are crazy spicy and I can't take a whole lot of heat from them but I love their color, shape, and even their flavor (if you can experience it with out too much pain). My husband loves all things spicy so he was more than happy to let me experiment with a habanero hot sauce. Most recipes I found suggested taking out the core and seeds but that's part of the heat. My husband assured me that he wasn't scared so I left them in. My final sauce has a great orange color and is very, very spicy. It's a great way to add a little (or lot) of heat and habanero flavor to many foods like eggs, salsas, roasted nuts, etc.
Habanero Hot Sauce
***WARNING VERY SPICY***
16 large habanero peppers
2/3 cup cider vinegar
1 Tbsp maple syrup
Stem all the habaneros then blanch for a minute or two in boiling water.
Place blanched habaneros in a blender with the maple syrup. Add enough vinegar to at least cover the peppers and puree until smooth.
Pour into bottles and refrigerate. Makes about 1 cup of hot sauce.
