Cherry Bomb Hot Sauce

Add sweet cherry heat to your favorite recipes with this easy hot sauce. Just blend boiled carrots, roasted red peppers, and habanero chiles with cherry juice, vinegar, ginger, and a touch of sugar and salt. This sweet and spicy sauce is an awesome complement to pork dishes like cochinita pibil or Cuban-style rotisserie pork loin.

Game plan: Habaneros are particularly spicy chile peppers, so we suggest wearing a pair of latex gloves when removing the seeds.

The hot sauce is ready to be served after 1 day, but the flavors will continue to meld and the heat from the peppers will mellow after 2 to 3 days. Refrigerate in a container with a tightfitting lid for up to 2 weeks.
