Habanero Hot Sauce Recipe

Ingredients and Steps for a homemade Habanero Hot Sauce Recipe: [Ingredients include]: 10-12 fresh habanero peppers, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 medium-sized onion, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of lime juice are required as ingredients to complete this recipe, 1 teaspoon of salt and sugar can also be included for taste!


Prep the Habanero Hot Sauce Ingredients

We recommend you wear protective gloves when handling habanero peppers as they can be very spicy. Remove their stems, rough chop them and roughly chop into small chunks before finely chopping your garlic cloves and dicing your onion for this dish.


Sauté Aromatics

On medium heat, heat the olive oil in a saucepan before adding chopped onions and garlic for sauteing until translucent and fragrant; this process will release their flavors while creating an aromatic base for hot sauce.


Add Your Habanero Peppers

With great care, add chopped habanero peppers to the saucepan while stirring with onions and garlic. Adjust heat as necessary so as to not burn peppers while sauteing for several minutes until softened slightly to release their intense aromas.


Reduce Heat to Low and Add the Vinegar

Over a low heat setting, combine white vinegar, lime juice, salt and sugar in your saucepan while stirring well until all components have combined thoroughly. Allow this mixture to simmer for 10-15 minutes to ensure all habanero peppers have become tender before proceeding further with this recipe.


Once the mixture has cooled sufficiently, transfer it to a blender or food processor and blend until a creamy texture has been reached. Beware when handling hot ingredients though as steam could build up inside. Remove the center cap of the lid to allow more steam to escape; alternatively cover with a clean kitchen towel so air can circulate more freely around it.


Adjust Flavor and Heat

When you have finished creating your blended hot sauce, taste it again for any needed adjustments to suit your preferences. Salt, sugar or lime juice might need to be added more so the flavors come out properly; or for an increased kick try adding in habanero peppers as desired if desired - keep in mind it's easier to increase heat than decrease it; so start slowly before going wilder with heat the levels!


Strain and Bottle Your Hot Sauce

For optimal results, strain hot sauce through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove any solids or seeds left behind during preparation. However, some prefer keeping seeds intact; after straining is complete, transfer to sterilized glass bottles or jars that feature airtight lids before refrigerating to store for long term storage.


Be Patient as Flavors Develop: Allow the hot sauce to fully cool before sealing its bottles and placing it into storage in an ideal environment (cool, dark place for at least a week to allow ingredients to blend and create more complex taste profiles), shaking regularly so as to rebalance flavors throughout each bottle.
