Notes

You must wear gloves when making this recipe or dealing with hot peppers.

Ingredients

  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper, washed, split, and seeded
  • 8 Cups distilled vinegar
  • 5 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 3 yellow bell peppers, washed, split, and seeded
  • 20 cloves garlic, peeled and remove the germ
  • 3 shallots
  • 1 Cup blended oil or grape seed oil
  • 2 Cups water
  • 4 Cups sugar

Directions

Roughly chop the chiles and place them in a bowl.

Pour half of the vinegar over the chiles and add 3 tablespoons of the kosher salt, and mix. Allow to ferment at room temperature uncovered for 4 days.

Grill the yellow peppers until nicely charred. Roughly chop the garlic and shallots.

Place the oil in a medium saucepan and add the charred yellow peppers, fermented scotch bonnets, water, and sugar, and let simmer on low heat until tender.

Add the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. The consistency should be thicker than most sauces, almost like a glaze. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
