My pepper harvests are in abundance. So much that I really have no idea what to do with them. Searching around the internet, I found this lovely recipe for hot sauce from Arcadian Mermaid. If you grew a ton of habaneros or you buy them in store, this is a great recipe to make a delicious hot sauce at home.
Simple Habanero Hot Sauce
Depending on the color of your habaneros this sauce can be mild with a kick, or super hot. Some of my habaneros were green, and later in the season, I decided to wait until they turned red and made the sauce again, and it’s much hotter this time around. So, it’s definitely up to you how hot you would like your sauce to be.
Below is a quick video if you want to see how I made the sauce at home.

Made some more habeneros hot sauce. I love this stuff and it's noticeably hotter than usual since I let my peppers turn red. Hope you can recreate at home. 12 habenero chili's 5 garlic cloves 1/2 onions 1 carrot 1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp sugar 1cup of water and apple cider vinegar #garden #recipes Song- yesterday's new quintet, rocket love
|Prep Time||5 mins|
|Cook Time||45 mins|
- 1 medium carrot
- Half of a small onion
- 12 medium orange habanero chiles stemmed
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
- Additional water as needed
- 1 bunch of garlic clvoes
- Break apart the garlic cloves and wrap them in some foil. Roast in an oven (or a toaster oven if you have one, it'll use less electricity) at 350 F for about 20 minutes. You can also dry roast the garlic cloves in a pan on the stove, just be sure to keep on eye on them and stir frequently so they roast evenly. Check the cloves; they should be soft and fragrant. If they look done, let them cool before peeling. Set aside.
- Roughly chop the carrot and onion, then add them to a medium-sized pan. Add the habanero chiles (just leave them whole), vinegar and water. Partially cover and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the carrots are very tender. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool a bit.
- Transfer the carrot/onion/habanero mixture into a blender along with the roasted garlic, salt, and sugar. Blend until very smooth. Taste and decide if you want to add more salt. If you think the sauce is too thick, blend a bit more with additional water until it's where you want it. Pour into glass bottles and store in the fridge.
