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***

Ingredients:

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.

Enjoy.

  3. I think my hubby would LOVE this. He loves all things spicy (I joke that he has burned off all of his taste buds) This will be the perfect recipe to use up the last of the habaneros from my garden too! Thank you for sharing! Hopping over from Lou Lou Girls and Teach Me Tuesday!

  8. Thanks Julia. I love the color too. It has quite a bit of vinegar in it so it should last for a while. I've had mine for almost 1 month and it still looks good but were going through it fast.

  11. Thanks Michelle. Homemade hot sauce is easy just blend together blanched peppers, vinegar, and anything else you might like. It's a wonderful way to use up a big harvest. You should try it.

  12. I would never be able to come within a mile of this - I'm a huge spice wimp, but I love making things at home that I would usually have to pay a fortune for at the store and that I can make much better according to my own tastes! Thanks for joining us on The Yuck Stops Here each week. I appreciate your contributions! HUGS
