This is one of the most addicitive hot sauces out there. For quite a while, it was commercially available, but a few years ago, it was pulled from the market, leaving many of us without our daily fix.

This is my take on the recipe that was published in a book by Chris Schlesinger, who was the creator of the commercial sauce.

Preparation Time:
0.25 hours

Tools

  • Blender or food processor
  • Food prep gloves
  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife

Ingredients

  • 12 fresh habanero chiles
  • 1 ripe mango, or equivalent frozen (I use half a bag of Trader Joe's frozen mango)
  • 1 cup cheap yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • 1 T chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions
Put on your gloves. Once you start chopping the chiles, be very careful not to touch any other body parts, especially your eyes, till you remove the gloves.

Cut the tops off the habaneros, and remove the seed pods. Save them till the end, when you might want to add some back in if you want it even hotter.

Chop up the bodies of the chiles a little bit. You don't have to go too nuts with this, because the blender will take care of most of it. Throw it in the blender.

If you are using fresh mango, peel and pit it in a bowl to make sure you catch all the juice. Hack it up a bit, and add to the blender. If you are using frozen, just add it directly to the blender.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender, put on the lid, and let 'er rip. Once it is smooth, give it a taste. If you want it hotter, toss in a couple of the bunches of seeds and blend it some more. Repeat till you are happy with the heat level.

Pour it into jars and store it in the fridge.

Remove your gloves and throw them away. Wash your hands with an alcohol hand cleaner. Carefully wash knife, cutting board and blender.
