I have several friends that are from Hawaii that introduced me to Fire Water about 25 years ago. I typically make this using fresh Thai Chiles and if I can get them Hawaiian Chiles. Since I was lucky enough to receive a bag full of dehydrated Habanero peppers I thought I'd experiment a little and see how it goes. The recipe is very basic and simple. I typically make a double batch as that fills a quart mason jar. my friends make theirs in empty condiment squeeze bottles. So here is the single batch recipe:

8-16 fresh Hawaiian Chile peppers sliced (I substituted 16 or so of the dried habaneros)

2 cloves garlic sliced

2 tsp rice vinegar (I substituted plain vinegar)

2 tsp Hawaiian salt ( I substituted kosher and added about a 1/2 tsp more)

2 cups hot, but not boiling water

Put the peppers garlic salt and vinegar in the jar. Muddle together with the fat end of a chop stick or similar item. Add water cover and set on counter overnight. Put in fridge the next day. Use on everything!


Originally I was only going to do one batch, but after taking this I photo I decided to do the full two batch. So I added more ingrediants.


Still just a single batch


Muddled and ready to work some magic on the counter! (UPDATE: its been sitting there for an hour now, and it's already taking on the color of the hab's and the hab's are starting to sink!!!) I hope it's as good as normal fire water!!!

Super good and HOT!!!!!!
 
OK so what is this used for? I like a little heat but not like that but I have a couple of friends who love heat! Ghost Pepper eaters for the fun of it, so I thought I would show them this but they are going to ask, "what do you do with it?"

Hey Dave. You put it on meat & vegetables, add it to soups, stews, spaghetti, chili, sauces, rice - anything you want to add heat & flavor to.  I like to soak toothpicks in it

So just put it in a small squeeze bottle and just squeeze it on whatever you want?
 
Yup that would work. I made some for a friend & he put it in a small spray bottle & uses it to mist things. I just dump it out on stuff but most people won't eat things I make at my desired level of heat. I usually make my own on the side & tone things down for everyone else - saves a lot of

Exactly. My friends in Hawaii use ketchup bottles or whatever left over condiment bottle and mix it right in those. It's really good stuff!
 
I'm going to use it to inject some hot wings next weekend. Gonna sneak them in for a few select friends with the normal Scarbelly injected wings

So the fire water keeps getting better and better everyday! The wings never happened, plans changed. Tomorrow I am going to smoke some BB ribs for dinner and mine are going to get a Fire water bath!
