2 pints


  • 18 fresh Scotch Bonnet peppers, sliced and seeded

  • 6 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced

  • ½ cup minced onion

  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups water

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar


  1. Combine peppers, onion, garlic, oil, and salt in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

  2. Pour in water; cook and stir until peppers are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature.

  3. Transfer mixture to a blender and purée until smooth. Pour in vinegar and sugar; blend until mixed. Transfer to a container, cover, and store in the refrigerator.


Replace scotch bonnets with habaneros or jalapeños for a milder sauce or if scotch bonnets are unavailable.

Use similarly colored peppers to keep the sauce a consistent color.

Leave seeds in some or all of the scotch bonnets for an even spicier sauce.
