Habanero Vinegar

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN Plus cooling
  • SERVINGS: 2/3 cup
  • FAST

This tangy, fiery condiment can stand in for any hot sauce, but it’s particularly delicious with rich meats like pulled pork.

Slideshow: Condiments

  1. 3 habanero chiles, stemmed
  2. 2/3 cup distilled white vinegar
  3. 2 teaspoons honey
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  5. Kosher salt
  1. Roast the chiles directly over a flame, turning, until lightly charred all over; transfer to a blender. 

  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar with the honey, ginger and a pinch 
of salt and bring to a boil. Pour the vinegar into the blender and let cool completely, then puree until smooth. Transfer the habanero vinegar to a jar and season with salt.

Make Ahead The habanero vinegar can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
