Slurp -- good stuff. If you like hot sauces, you must try this. It's
meant to be an imitation of Inner Beauty commercial sauce (before
they toned down the heat).
Inner Beauty Style Hot Sauce
from _Big Flavors of the Hot Sun_ by Schlesinger and Willoughby
12 fresh habaneros
1 ripe 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
1 pair rubber/latex gloves
Put on gloves. Be very careful not to touch your face, eyes or any
part of your body until you remove the gloves at the end.
Slice caps off of habaneros, remove seed bundle and
set aside (you'll add them at the end to increase the heat to your
desired tastes), coarsly chop the body of the habaneros and add to
food processor bowl. (only the bodies, keep the seeds out for now).
Get a bowl, you're going to hack the mango. Over a bowl, to catch all
the juice and flesh, peel and remove the pit of the mango. Use your
hands. Add the mango flesh and juice to the processor bowl. Puree
the mango and habaneros.
Now add the remaining ingredients and process till smooth. Taste.
(good, huh? A little hot now, but mostly sweet). Add the seed
bundles you reserved from the habaneros a few at a time to taste.
This is supposed to be a very fiery sauce, but you're going to be
eating it so make it hot to your taste. Wimps can leave out all the
seed bundles. True hot-heads can add them all. I added about half of
Pour into jar(s) or bottle(s) and store in refrigerator.
Carefully remove gloves and throw away. Carefully clean cutting board.
