Thread Starter 
I just collected my first batch of hablano's from my garden. I want to make a sauce using them but have zero experience doing this from scratch. Can someone help me with some direction??icon_redface.gif

Well, a basic hot sauce is usually the peppers, some salt, garlic and vinegar. Put it in the blender and let her rip. I'm sure the variations are endless, but I think I would google it and do considerable research before comitting myself.

Good luck with the saucebiggrin.gif

Here is one I found.

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
20 fresh habenero peppers, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup minced onion
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
1 cup distilled white vinegar In a medium glass or enamel lined sauce pan over high heat, combine oil, peppers, garlic, onion and salt; saute for 4 minutes. Add the water and cook for 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
Transfer the mixture to a food processor and puree until smooth. With the processor running, slowly add the vinegar.
Pour into a sterilized jar with a tight lid. This sauce will keep for 6 months when stored in the refrigerator.

Another suggestion - would be to smoke them for an hour first, before making the sauce icon_cool.gif

#1 - removes a TAD bit of heat. ( I don't know how hot a hablano is though...?)

#2 - mmmm flavor....

If your goal is melt-your-face-off heat, then you could always add a little cayenne. I just love the smoked peppers flavor!

Other than that, I don't make homemade pepper sauce, but the above reply is correct regarding the typical hot pepper sauce.

If you have the patience to wait you can always make a pepper mash, this will give you a great hot sauce but can take up to a year.
You can also check out the list of hot sauces on pepperfool and sub hablanos for whatever pepper the recipes call for.

Hey Fireitup, thanks for that link, some great ideas.

I would support the suggestion of smoking/grilling them first. Great flavor. Does not take long as the habs. are thin skinned. Chop/crumbled up, shake out seeds and chuck in the blender with other stuff. Let it sit in the fridge for 2 days. rember: I live in Mexico and they KNOW how to make salsa. Wear gloves.

I would also do a mango-habenero....I would definitily grill or smoke the peppers and tomatoes first. before the blender step...adds great flavor

I don't really have a salsa recipe. It always just sort of comes together and I adjust it for seasoning and heat the way I like it. Folks are always begging for it so I must be getting something right. I do agree with roasting or smoking all the veggies you put in it. Lately I have been adding corn and black beans. Terrific!

My advice to you on hablano's is get ahold of Rivet he makes salsa with jalapenos and habinario that is really really good I know I have some and he I sure he will give you the recipe for it . I cann't find a link so ask Rivet.
