Trinidadian Pepper Sauce

  • FAST

This recipe comes from Grace Parisi's neighbor, Dick Hosten, a Trinidad native who makes this fiery sauce in batches and eats it on just about everything.

  1. 7 habanero or Scotch bonnet chiles
  2. 15 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  3. 15 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  4. 1 large carrot, coarsely chopped
  5. 1 cup water
  6. 3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  7. 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  8. 2/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  9. 2 tablespoons thyme leaves
  10. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  11. Salt
  1. In a small saucepan of boiling water, blanch the chiles for 1 minute. Drain and let cool. Discard the stems.
  2. In a blender or food processor, pulse the chiles with the garlic, scallions, carrot and water until finely chopped. Add the vinegar, mustard, cilantro, thyme and lime juice and pulse just until combined. Season with salt. Transfer the sauce to jars and refrigerate.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for 1 year.
