1. Xxxx-Hot Carribbean Habanero Hot Sauce

Categories: Sauce

Yield: 8 Servings     
     12    Habanero peppers; hand picked
       4(up to) 5 Dried; smoked Jalapenos (can use fresh; if desired)
      2    Papayas
      3 tb Chopped onion
    1/4 c  Vinegar; or more
      2 tb Lime juice
      1 tb Salt
      1 tb Sugar
      1 pn Cinnamon (can omit; if desired)
      1 pn Garlic
   1/4 c Mustard; or less

~Hydrate the dried jalapenos. Retain approx. 1/4 cup of the liquid.

~Chop all solids. Throw into blender with liquid ingredients. "Liquify" for a good, long time ... goal here is to do away with all chunks of anything. Note: I left seeds & "flesh" of peppers intact. For a more mild sauce, you may want to extract these

~Once mixture is very smooth, cook over very low heat for 30-60 minutes. Stir often. During this time, taste (as much as you are able to), and add add'l amounts of desired ingredients until you acheive the taste you desire. Goal is to come up with a sauce that is sweet at first taste, then leaves a healthy amount of pain as the taste fades away.

~Remove from heat, cool 30-60 minutes.

~Strain mixture to extract liquid, leave behind seeds, pulp, etc. This will take a while - be patient.

~Store extracted liquid in an air-tight container, or in a sealed bottle. Time will increase heat & taste.

Note: Like many cooks, I created this with no precise measurements ... it was a total experiment & actually turned out very well (though very painful). Please feel free to alter/experiment.

Ingredients Measures
Skinless, boneless chicken meat, cut into 1-inch cubes 1 pound
Onion, coarsely chopped ½ cup
Medium carrot, peeled and thinly sliced 1
Celery, thinly sliced 1 stalk
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Black pepper to taste
Ground cloves 1 pinch
Bay leaf 1
Water 3 cups
Cornstarch 1 teaspoon
Dried basil 1 teaspoon
(10 ounces) frozen peas 1 package
Yellow corn meal 1 cup
Sifted all-purpose flour ¾ cup
Baking powder 2 teaspoons
Salt ½ teaspoon
Low-fat (1%) milk 1 cup
Vegetable oil 1 tablespoon

Place chicken, onion, carrot, celery, salt, pepper, cloves, bay leaf, and water into a large saucepan. Heat to boiling; cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for about ½ hour or until chicken is tender.
Remove chicken and vegetables from broth. Strain broth.
Skim fat from broth; measure and, if necessary, add water to make 3 cups liquid.
Mix cornstarch with 1 cup cooled broth by shaking vigorously in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
Pour into saucepan with remaining broth; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened.
Add basil, peas, and reserved vegetables to sauce; stir to combine.
Add chicken and heat slowly to boiling while preparing corn meal dumplings.
Sift together corn meal, flour, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Mix together milk and oil. Add milk mixture all at once to dry ingredients; stir just enough to moisten flour and evenly distribute liquid. Dough will be soft.
Drop by full tablespoons on top of braised meat or stew. Cover tightly; heat to boiling. Reduce heat (do not lift cover) to simmering and steam for about 20 minutes.
