I really LOVE habaneros. They have such an amazing, fruity flavor that is so bright and wonderful! I know they are very hot, so if hot food bothers you, please skip this. Or use a red bell pepper and just two seeded habaneros. (The result won't be the same, but it will still be delicious!)
If you've been reading the blog and Following my Facebook , you know that The Boyfriend and I have been a bit obsessed with creating hot sauces. Hello, My name is Melody and I'm am addicted to Hot Food!
I really can't get enough, so I've been eating an obscene amount of Sriracha in my food. Now don't get me wrong, Sriracha is fabulous, BUT, it made my food too salty, so we decided to attempt to create a HOTTER, less salty version. We have made two attempts so far, with amazing results... although honestly, the sauces don't quite taste like Sriracha... but I am getting ahead myself. That will be another post all together and when we finally DO create the hotter, less salty Sriracha, we will share the recipe here! ... one more thing and then I'll get back to the Habanero Sauce!.. in our attempts, we wanted to add some brightness to the sauce, so we juiced Thai Bird Chilies.. and we loved the juice so much, we created another sauce with it! Here's a sneak peak of our most favorite one yet! . It's beautiful, clean, crisp, hot and just all around YUMMY! .. but first, look at the gorgeous Thai Bird Chili Juice
