Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce (Habenero Hot Sauce)

Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce (Habenero Hot Sauce)

I thought I'd submit my recipe which is a clone of a locally available sauce here in Portland OR called Secret Aardvark Sauce.

Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce

1 – 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes or roasted tomatoes chopped - include the juice

1 – 14.5 oz of rice wine vinegar. Use the now empty tomato can to measure

1-1/2 cups of peeled and grated carrots (packed into the measuring cup)

1 cup of finely diced white onion

1/4 cup of yellow mustard

1/3 cup of sugar

2 teaspoons of Morton’s Kosher Salt

1 teaspoon of black pepper

13 small Habaneros – seeded and membranes removed. (This was 2 oz. of Habaneros before cutting off the tops and removing the seeds and membranes)

2 teaspoons curry powder

1 cup of water when cooking

5 or 6 cloves of garlic - roasted if you've got it

Put it all in the crockpot on high until everything is tender. About 3 hours  Note: I used the crockpot so I don't have to worry about scorching it while it cooks. 

Whirl in food processor – Don’t puree until smooth – make it lightly/finely chunky.

Makes 3 pints - To can process pint jars in a water bath canner for 15 minutes

I've thought about making this with peaches or mangoes too, but haven't tried it yet.
