Trini Hot Sauce?

I've found a couple of recipes for peppa sauce from Trinidad... Most involve plenty of habeneros, white vinegar, cheap yellow mustard, garlic, and onion. Anyone have an absolutely to die for recipe? Also, for the cucumber relish that often goes on "doubles"?

  1. I just put this on a habanero thread...and yes, it is to die for.

    Trini hot sauce
    paraphrased from Get Saucy (which is a great book despite the dumb name) p 353
    makes about 4 cups of sauce. it keeps well in the fridge.

    12 habeneros or scotch bonnet peppers (more or less, you know how that goes)
    2 carrots, cut up or shredded
    1 large heard of garlic
    1 bunch scallions, chopped
    1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
    1/2 cup fresh flat parsley leaves
    2 T fresh thyme leaves
    3/4 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cupr prepared yellow mustard
    2T fresh lime juice
    generous pinch of salt

    blanch chiles, put them in blender
    blanch carrots and garlic, add to blender, let cool
    add everything but the salt to the blender
    pulse to coarse puree
    add salt to taste, store in a glass jar in the fridge
    GREAT on grilled chicken (marinade the chicken in it)
