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.
