This is an authentic, homemade Trinidadian Hot Sauce given to my husband by one of the locals while he was there-----it's got heat so be careful. A little bit will go a long way but the flavor is wonderful

Trinidadian Pepper Sauce

1 pound of habanero peppers
1 teaspoon of salt
1 garlic bulb
1 pint of vinegar (I used apple cider but any is fine)
1 pint of Lousiana hot sauce (I used Tabasco but any will do--this is used for color and preservative)

Add onion (I lucked out as Vidalia were in season) and cilantro to your taste.

Do not add anything that has water of juices like tomatoes.

Blend everything in the blender.

Important not to refrigerate. If you do, the sauce loses its heat. Also important, never dip into the sauce with spoons that have food, as this will cause bacteria to grow. (This was the Trinidadian's words)

I believe that I cut the recipe by 1/2 but you can play with it anyway that you want.

*** if you decide to cut up your habaneros before adding them to the food processor be sure to wear gloves and don't touch any part of your face

I tried the hot sauce on an orange and it was actually pretty interesting. At first it tasted like BBQ sauce, then you got the orange, then the heat. The orange I used was pretty sweet, next time I'll try a different variety.

"Sambal" basically means "sauce." There are lots of different kinds, using all kinds of ingredients. Sambal Oelik, Sambal Manis, Sambal Bajek and Sambak Tumis are just a few types.

They all are chili based (that I know of). Oelek is just chilkis while others add shrimp, garlic, sugar, spices, nuts, onion, ginger, tamarind, mango, etc.

Sriracha is a sauce made from chili, garlic, sugar vinegar and salt.

I don't think sambals use vinegar, but they might. And the sambals I have used have been thicker than Sriracha.

Ahhhh, okay, thanks, jenny!

I have Sambal Oelik and I just checked the ingredients. It does have chii, salt and vinegar, but yes, it is thick - a paste. And verrrrrrrrrry hot.

Is Sriracha also very very hot? I'm a Frank's girl, but would like to try things with different flavors, if they ARE different.

qsis, i think you'd love sriracha. it's not much hotter than franks', but definitely has a different flavor. as frank's tastes vinegary and garlicy to me, sriracha tastes just like a certain type of thai pepper.

but it's not for bathing food in, unless you really like heat. it's more a "coupla drops 'll do ya" type of sauce.

IMO it's not very hot. To me, no hotter than Frank's. But it tastes very different. Definitely worth a try.

We use several different hot sauces here at Casa de Hoot. It depends on what we are eating....I make my own, as well.
I been working on a habaņero hot sauce recipe but so far, I have met with limited success getting the balance of flavors just right.
When I find the balance, I will let y'all know.
