This is one great hot sauce - easy to make and you can have it as mild or as hot as you want . Great for using up those chili peppers from the garden. Use it on everything and anything. Keeps several weeks in the fridge. This recipe was on the internet and credited to Pepper Joe

  1. Blanch the peppers in boiling water for 1 minute (if you want this sauce milder remove seeds& membrane before blanching the peppers) Put the peppers in your food processor or blender.
  2. Boil the onion, garlic& sweet potato until fork tender (just cover them with water& bring to a boil, simmer until tender) Toss the onion, garlic& sweet potato into the processor together with all the other ingredients Pulse to start and then puree, cool.

excellent sauce! dang hot though. i used carrots as i did not have any sweet potato. very simple to make with very tasty results. i left the seeds in the peppers(red jalapenos) and dh said it was perfect heat. will definitely make again.

I used habs and jalapenos and it isn't crazy hot, warms your whold mouth. Good tasting hot sauce, but not what I expected. It tastes more like a relish. It won't go to waste, but not sure I will make again.

This has great flavor, but it reallllll hot! I added a little more cider vinegar and alittle more sugar to tone it down a little. Thanks Bergy for a tasty hot sauce!
