Pineapple-Habanero Hot sauce
By Ahamefula Amachi

 

So another has past and a new one is upon us full of promise and resolutions. The most popular resolution being, watching what we eat, by cutting back on fats in our diet. Unfortunately, fat does help to add flavor to our foods. So here we are at the crossroads. Do we sacrifice flavor for our diets, or our diets for flavor. It is time to be creative with the use of marinades, herbs, and my favorite hot sauces. Now you are scratching your head and saying, "hot sauce?" And I'm saying hot sauce! Not only does it give you flavor, but also a little extra zing to what ever dish you want to create. Like I stated earlier, hot sauce is my favorite flavor enhancer. Out of all the possible hot sauce combinations, those flavored with tropical fruits (i.e. pineapple, mango, etc), give that perfect balance of sweet and hot.
 
Ingredients
 

  • 1 pineapple, med dice

  •  
  • 4 Habanero seeded and diced

  •  
  • 3 red bell peppers seeded and large dice

  •  
  • 3 yellow bell peppers seeded and large dice

  •  
  • 2 med yellow onions large dice

  •  
  • 5 cloves garlic minced

  •  
  • med piece ginger minced

  •  
  • 2 cups cider vinegar

  •  
  • 1 1/2 cups rice wine vinegar

  •  
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat honey

  •  
  • Salt to taste

  •  
    Preparation:
     

    1) In a large stock pot place all the ingredients except for the honey and bring to simmer.
     
    2) Let simmer for about half an hour occasionally stirring. Add in the honey and let simmer for another hour. Add salt to taste.
     
    3) Remove the sauce from the heat and let cool. Once the sauce has cooled puree it done in a food processor or a blend and the run through a fine mesh strainer.
     
    4) The sauce can be placed in a squeeze bottle and refrigerated.
