Fruity Flame Sauce ~ A Tropical Hot Sauce
Making hot sauce has always been a favorite past time around our home. Matt loves it and coats most meals from chicken wings to pizza in Franks. But, he also loves to experiment with different peppers, fruits, and vinegars to create hot sauces with a unique flavour and a little more heat.
Hot sauce is a great condiment to keep on hand and it can easily be tailored to your liking, to compliment an array of dishes. This recipe is a carribean inspired sauce that will enhance most mexican and island dishes. Experiment with different citrus juice or by adding other tropical fruits like papaya or bananas. Just as long as it’s hot, you can’t go wrong!
