Roasted Pepper Hot Sauce
This is the least pretty of the sauces on this list, but don’t judge a hot sauce by its looks. Roasting your hot peppers gives this sauce a nice smoky flavor. Your house will definitely smell like vinegar the day that you make this sauce, so maybe save this recipe for a day that you don’t have company coming over.
- 2 cups assorted hot peppers, seeded and sliced into 1″ pieces
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- white vinegar
- 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (or more, to taste)
1. Preheat the oven to 400, and while that heats up get those peppers prepped. Toss them with the olive oil in a shallow baking pan and roast, stirring every 15-20 minutes, until the peppers start to blacken.
2. Remove the peppers from the oven, transfer to a pan with the garlic, and add enough vinegar to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
3. Let the mixture cool, then transfer it in batches into your blender or food processor with the maple syrup. Blend until smooth, transfer to a glass bottle or mason jar, and store in the fridge.
