Super Spicy and Healthy Hokkaido Sauce in a Jar
Many times there are these times that you have a full fridge because something was on sale and you bought a bunch of stuff from supermarket even though you don’t really know what you’re going to cook with those things. Or you just went shopping and you though: ,,Oh, this week I might cook this and this, and this… and then you end up with a full shopping basket, you come home and you’re trying to push everything into your fridge which is already half full from the last shopping.
Like right now, we have a full fridge . But it only happened because there was a misunderstanding. I was out shopping and then my dad came home from work with a few bags from the supermarket. He didn’t know I was shopping that day and neither did I that he will go to the supermarket too. So now we have a full fridge. But we don’t mind. We are Food Loving family and we enjoy to eat.
But sometimes there are those times that you have literally empty fridge and almost nothing to eat. You know those times? Have you been there? I guess everybody has.
So in that case, luckily there is a solution for it.
And this recipe is that solution. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I mean this amazing Hokkaido – Habanero Sauce that you can see above on a picture and also down below.
Well, to be honest, it’s not really such a big solution because you still need to have a bread at home to eat that Hokkaido – Habanero Sauce with.
I know, I know, I guess I have disappointed you a little. But, I mean it well. It’s going to be ok, trust me.
Well, because, I’ve been in those times when you are hungry and you have nothing to prepare a food with, or you don’t have time to cook something for yourself.
And that’s why we have this sauce at home. We have many of them actually. Because the best thing about the sauce is that you can prepare it the day that you have all the ingredients for it at home, you have time of course and then you can just store the jars with a sauce on a shelf for a few years. And every time that comes this ,,empty fridge” moment, you just grab a jar of Hokkaido sauce, make a toast and you ready to eat.
Oh, before I forget: This Hokkaido – Habanero Sauce is also super healthy by the way. And also super spicy so it might warm you up.
Hokkaido - Habanero SaucePrint Recipe
- 21 ounces (600g) Red Peppers
- 21 ounces (600g) Hokkaido
- 0,7 – 1 ounce (20-30g) Habanero (1 or 2 peppers)
- 50 ml Olive Oil
- 3 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
- 500 ml Tomato Puree
- 4 tsp Salt
- 3 tsp Sugar
- 2 Bay Leaves
- ½ tsp Coriander powder
- ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
- ½ tsp Turmeric
- 6 Garlic cloves
- pinch of Black Pepper
Cut the Red peppers, Hokkaido and Habanero into small pieces. Warning! Start with a small amount of peppers. Two peppers are for people who love very spicy.
Put them into a big pot with all the ingredients except garlic and tomato puree. Turn on the heat to small, cover the pot and cook everything for about 15 minutes. Give it a few stirs every 3-4 minutes.
In a mean time prepare your jars: Cook them in a big pot with for about 15 minutes, also the lids.
After 15 minutes, add the garlic and mix everything with a hand blender or in a mixer.
Add tomato puree and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
Taste the sauce and add more salt or any ingredient as desire.
Take your jars and pour the sauce into the jars as the sauce is still hot. Close the jars tight and turn them upside down. After the jars are chilled you can turn them up and check if they are closed properly.
After you open the jar with sauce keep it in a fridge and try to consume it within 3-4 days. Closed jars can last even 4 years. That’s how long we still have a few jars left 🙂
