Sweet Potato/Habanero Hot Sauce

This is a great tasting hot sauce, easy to make & cheap too.

Gotta love the clear, bright color.

Right after puree'in ... ready for bottles.

Couple sweet potatoes, some new crop Texas 1015 sweet onion, 5-6 stemmed/halved habanero peppers (seeds & all), white vinegar, pinch salt, splash fresh lemon juice ... boil, puree', strain ... badda boom = killer hot sauce.

no water at all ... boil the sweet taters/onions/habs in the vinegar. slow rolling boil for about 20 minutes or so, until very tender but not falling apart. use a lid also, so none of the vinegar evaporates. use white distilled vinegar. i used 2 sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed - about 1/2 a nice big sweet texas 1015 onion - 5 whole habs, stems removed and a full quart of white vinegar. when tender, just puree' everything real smooth & add a lil' fresh lemon juice at that time, and salt to taste. that's it. if it's too thick, just add a lil' more vinegar.

i think you will like this sauce ~ i sure do. i saw some chef on teevee making it the other day - he bottles it & uses it in his restaurant, got bottles of it on all his tables, plus he retails it. he didn't give a recipe, but he gave just enough info that i could figure out the rest of it on my own. i'm looking forward to making some hot wings with this sauce.
