F-16 Afterburner Hot SauceFrom jimrug1 7 years ago
- ½ dried Ancho Chile shopping list
- 1 fresh red Dutch; Thai, or jalapeno chile shopping list
- 16 fresh Scotch Bonnet or habanero Chiles; preferably orange or golden yellow shopping list
- 1 cup coarsely chopped yellow onion shopping list
- 4 Large cloves garlic, crushed shopping list
- 2 Tbls fresh lemon juice shopping list
- 2 Jiggers Amber rum shopping list
- 1 cup white vinegar shopping list
- 1 Tsp dried oregano shopping list
How to make it
- Submerge the Ancho in a pot of hot water and soak until soft, about 20 minutes. Chop Ancho finely and reserve.
- Roast and peel the Dutch Chile. Stem, seed, and finely chop the chile.
- Stem and seed the Scotch Bonnets, (WEAR GLOVES!!)leaving the inner membranes (and, if desired, a few seeds).
- Combine the Scotch Bonnets with Onion and Garlic in a food processor and process until very finely chopped.
- Combine Lemon Juice, Rum, and Vinegar in a nonreactive pan and bring to a boil. Pour liquid into processor, add the Oregano and Dutch Chile, and process lightly.
- Add the Ancho teaspoon by teaspoon, processing briefly in between, pulsing only enough to obtain a smooth, yellow-orange sauce, highlighted by red flecks. (Overprocessing or adding too much Ancho will result in a redder sauce, which is also quite beautiful.) Refrigerated, this sauce will keep up to 8 weeks.
- Serving Suggestions: Try this on Black Eyed Peas or Black Beans. It will also kick up any Caribbean style BBQ sauce and a few drops on a slice of Pizza is fantastic.
