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.

500g short hollow pasta - I use Gomiti (elbows) but you can use penne or any similar shape. 200-250 g sour cream 300-350 fromage blanc or another mildly tart "farmer 's cheese" such as tvorog or quark 6 medium eggs (or 5 large ones) 8-10 spring onions, thinly sliced apx 6 tbsp chopped parsley 2 garlic loves, minced Optional: 2 tsp nutritional yeast (or a bit of MSG) salt to taste (1.5 tsp) 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper Bread crumbs topping:
apx 15-25g butter 9 tbsp breadcrumbs (divided 7 + 2) a large pinch of salt
Mix everything but the pasta and bread crumbs topping in a large bowl. Boil pasta in salted water slightly short of al-dante. Briefly wash the pasta to stop further cooking and drain well. Mix in with the batter. Melt the butter and mix with 7 tbsp bread crumbs and a bit of salt. Grease a baking pan or mold - I much prefer a silicone mold, but you can also use a springform pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with the buttery breadcrumbs. Top with the remaining 2 tbsp of breadcrumbs. Gently pour the pasta mixture on top. Bake at 190dC for apx 35 minutes, until set. You may need to cover the pan if it seems to be drying. Cool for a few minutes before flipping over a sheet pan. You may have loose breadcrumbs, put them back on top. When ready to serve, put under a medium-strong broiler until crisp and browned.

This recipe is from Really Nice!
1 c sugar
1/2 c butter (1 stick)
1/4 c water
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large saucepan add sugar, butter, water and salt. Cook about 10 minutes; stirring constantly to prevent burning. You want the mixture to start turning a light brown. When this happens remove mixture from heat, add vanilla and stir. Careful, it will bubble up.
Allow to cool to near room temperature for it to thicken up.

This is a quick refrigerator marinade that will last for months in the fridge. They are great as a snack or a side or on a tray with similar items. 2 pounds will make roughly a quart.
Start by brushing off or rinsing off any dirt and trim longer stems so the mushroom is pleasing to the eye. Keep in mind that they will shrink, so only cut up the ones larger than a golf ball (unless you want them sliced). Put 1 TBS kosher salt and 1/2 cup white vinegar in a sauce pan, add the mushrooms and enough water to float them. Put on high heat to boil.
In a clean quart jar, add 3 or 4 cloves of peeled garlic that have been slightly crushed (I use the flat side of a knife under the heel of my hand to do this), 1 TBS kosher salt, 1 TBS dried dill weed and a few shakes of crushed red pepper flakes to taste.
Once the mushrooms have come to a boil, give the pot a stir and examine the surface of the boiling liquid for any dirt that may have escaped your attention and skim the foam it is floating on if you see any. Boil for about 5 minutes until you notice the color change from white to beige then pour the contents of the pot into a colander to drain. Allow them to cool until they can be handled and add them to the jar you have prepared along with a few bay leaves. I like to add a few layers of thinly sliced onions, but that is optional. When the mushrooms are all in the jar, pour in enough white vinegar to fill the jar half way to the top, then add tap water to 3/4 from the top and top off with a well shaken Italian dressing ( I use Ken's Italian Dressing and Marinade). Secure the lid and shake until you see that all the salt has dissolved. Refrigerate and give the jar a shake every day or so. The mushrooms will be ready in about 3 days.
