fresh Scotch Bonnet peppers, sliced and seeded
fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced
distilled white vinegar
I have been looking for a basic Scotch Bonnet / Habanero sauce for a long time and this is the best one I have found. I pretty much copied the recipe but omitted the Jalapeños and replaced them with more scotch bonnets. I also used jam sugar (that's what we call it in the UK anyway) which has added pectin in it and made the sauce a little thicker. Any ideas what the shelf life is in the refrigerator with this amount of vinegar? Thanks for posting it.
Awesome! My husband loves hot sauces... and did you know they are healthy for you! The hotter the better they are. I kept the seeds in and got maybe about 2 cups of hot sauce. Definitely the best hot sauce out there.
This was a very tasty and very hot hotsauce! I didnt have any scotch bonnets so i used red habanero,jalepenos,and thai peppers.I didnt have any fresh garlic so i used garlic salt and omitted the salt I added about a half teaspoonlemon juice. ended up tasting really good.You will need to open some windows or wear an oxygen mask because it is really hard to breath while cooking it.
This sauce is excellent! I can not recommend it enough! I made it almost exactly as the recipe said. I used 18 habaneros and 6 jalapenos, all WITH seeds. The only difference was that I decreased the sugar to 1 Tbsp and added a can of sliced peaches. Because of my change, it came out a little too sweet, but it aged wonderfully. After a couple of weeks, the jar or so that I had left was FANTASTIC! Sweet and very hot! Goes great on so many things. If you like it less sweet, I would recommend either sticking to the recipe, or perhaps using 1 Tbsp sugar and half a can (or less) of peaches.
Great recipe to make your own. I use this one for the basis of many of my recipes by simply adjusting and adding new ingredients for some amazing sauces. My latest has been a variation of this one... Reduce peppers to only 12-14 Scotch Bonnets (don't remove the seeds), reduce garlic to 3 large cloves, 1-2 tomatoes, increase vinegar to a tad less than 1/4 cup, 1/4 cup of fresh orange juice (or to taste), and a few dashes of curry. For the onion, I use a sweet/vadalia. Everything else is the same. It still packs plenty of punch but has subtle hints of citrus. If you try this variation, let me know. Thanks to "bla" for the original recipe!
very good recipe and method. I filled 3 chili sauce bottles. I used 10 scotch bonnets(habaneros) + 6 jalapeno + 6 Serrano. I removed all the seeds from the all the peppers. Strong garlic flavor so cut back a few cloves if that offends you.
this is great, i was wondering what to do with the crazy amount of bonnets my bushes were making. i added a little curry and some fresh lime juice. great recipe.
a little thinner than i was expecting but quite tasty.. I might add a dash of curry powder next time...you need to open windows and run a fan when the veggies begin to simmer as it's hard to breathe with all the pepper juices going wild!
