My first homemade hot sauce


Since our family started to eat food spicier and spicier, I’ve decided to try to make my own homemade hot sauce. The first one I chose is after a recipe from www.caribbeanpot.com. I chose “the blazing mango and peach hot sauce but actually used orange juice and peach instead. The sauce is amazing in taste but very hot so next time I will try it with different type of peppers.

Ingredients:

  • 30 g ghost peppers
  • 30 g Wiri-Wiri hot peppers
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 4 halves canned peaches
  • 1/2 cup peach canned juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Hungarian paprika
  • 1/3 tbsp smoked paprika
