Roasted Habanero Hot Sauce

Hot sauces are one of those things that seem really hard to make, but really aren’t. Its not too hard to find a fairly high quality hot sauce store bought with few ingredients, but when you see how easy it is, you’ll want to make your own.

*Warning!! This hot sauce is HOT!*

You will need-

1 pint of organic habanero peppers
1/2 c. white vinegar
2 large pinches of sea salt (or about a teaspoon)Water

Before you begin, you may want to get some rubber gloves to wear while you make this. Habanero peppers burn something awful if the juice comes in  contact with your skin. I didn’t use gloves but I was really careful to only touch the skins or use tongs/a fork to touch them.

Preheat your oven to its broil setting. Start off by removing the stem and cutting all the peppers long ways in half. Place all the peppers cut side down in a baking dish and broil for ~10 minutes, or until the skins just start to blacken (see picture)(also, keep the windows open or a fan on or have a well ventilated area while you cook them, the hot peppery fumes can burn and make you cough). Remove them from the oven and transfer them all into a pint mason jar and close it for 10-20 minutes. This finishes cooking them through with their own steam. Add the vinegar and salt into the jar and fill it with water (probably about a cup). If you have a stick blender and are using a wide mouth jar you can blend it directly in the jar. Otherwise, transfer to a blender and blend it until its completely smooth. Store it in the fridge.

Remember a little goes a looong way with habaneros. They are really hot.

Add a few drops in soup or add some to a pot of chili or even in tacos.
