“While trying out a recipe for a hot sauce (Garry's Habanero Hot Sauce). I quickly realized that the result was going to be far too hot for my personal tastes. So I fiddled with the ingredients and combined with an old family recipe for BBQ sauce. The end result turned out fantastic, and I have made this numerous times since. We are into canning, and this recipe works well in 1 pint jars, if you're into that sort of thing. Otherwise, just keep it in the fridge. The heat level can be adjusted by altering the number of peppers or peaches. I find that 7-8 normal sized habaneros and 2 full cans of peaches gives a good balance of heat and sweet.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *** Wearing gloves*** Remove stems and seeds from peppers (reserve the seeds from one pepper). Do not touch the cut peppers with your bare skin and don't touch your eyes or skin with the gloves after handeling the cut peppers. Trust me, I made this mistake once.
  2. Put peppers and peaches (including the juice/syrup) into a blender and blend until evenly mixed.
  3. Pour blended mixture into a large pot.
  4. Add all other ingredients and the seeds from 1 pepper.
  5. Stir to mix and cook over medium heat.
  6. Bring sauce to a simmer and continue cooking for about 40 minutes, stirring frequently ensuring that the bottom doesn't burn .
  7. Sauce will thicken slightly to the consistency of -- well, of BBQ sauce.
  8. Remove sauce from heat.
  9. If you are canning it, follow standard procedure for sterilizing and canning. If you are just going to eat it, let it cool slightly and transfer it to the desired container. (It's best if it sits for a few days in the refrigerator.).
