Habanero and Trinidad Scorpion Hot Sauce Recipe


This recipe is dedicated to “Ryan The Cop”

Ingredients

20-30 Habanero or Trinidad Scorpion Chilies seeded.

Enough white vinegar to cover

1/2 tsp salt or more to taste

5 cloves garlic or more to taste

Rubber gloves

In a sauce pan combine all ingredients and simmer for 1 hour or longer. Transfer chilies and garlic to a blender or food processor. Let the chilies cool before processing; the hot chilies will release very harsh fumes that will make you very unhappy. When cool, blend until smooth. Push down chilies from the sides with a spatula and blend again. Add reserved vinegar as you blend to your desired consistency. Add more salt as needed.

Use rubber gloves or wash your hands with a bleach solution or you will be sorry. Washing your hands with regular or dish soap will not do the trick.

I used Trinidad Scorpions in my sauce. The Trinidad Scorpion is between 800,000 and 1,400,000 on the Scoville Scale.

Habanero is about 300,000 to 500,000 on the Scoville Scale

Wooooooooo!

    Does the heat increase with more Trinidad Scorpions? Surely it must get to a point where it reaches maximum heat. Would one be weaker than 3 or 10 be weaker than 20 in a sauce?

      The volume and consistency of the sauce is one of the factors. one way to regulate the heat level would be to take out the white membrane inside; this is where the heat resides. I like my sauce hot but not ridiculous hot. There is plenty of heat in a sauce without the membrane.
