My go-to recipe:
Habanero Hot Sauce with Carrots
24 habanero peppers (finely chopped)
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4-1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Sugar to taste
Put a fan on your kitchen window or be prepared to leave the house for fresh air often.
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Sauté the onion and garlic and 1/2 of the habaneros.
Add the chopped carrots and toss the mixture. Sauté till they turn very soft. Add water to keep the whole thing moist and simmer until the carrots are cooked well. Transfer the mixture into a blender and add rest of habanero; blend this mixture until very smooth, at least 3 minutes.
Then, combine the puree, lime juice, vinegar and a pinch of salt and simmer for approximately 5 minutes.
The above is very rough, I play with it depending on what I have on hand, sometimes I use pineapple juice, sometimes other peppers get added. The heat will always be a little different.
