Introduction: Habanero Pineapple BBQ Sauce

About: I am a self-taught artist of many mediums, including writing, digital and traditional art, food, and jewelry.

Sweet pinapple and spicy habañero peppers give this sauce a strong flavor unlike anything you'll find at the grocery store. It's great for adding a kick to your summer grilling. This recipe makes a very small yield, but it's more than enough for dipping. Double or triple it if you plan on coating grilled meats with it.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

3 Habañero peppers
1/2 cup pineapple
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup molasses
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp hickory Liquid Smoke

Other things you'll need:
A blender or food processor
A meduim-sized pot

Step 2: Preparing the Peppers and Pineapple

Remove the seeds from the peppers. You'll want to wear gloves so you don't get the oils on your hands.

Cut about 1/4 of the pineapple into chunks.

Put both of those into your blender or food processor and liquefy.

Step 3: Simmering

Mix all of your ingredients together, including the liquified mix, in a pot. Simmer until it reaches the desired consistancy, which takes about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep the pineapple sugars from separating.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Bottle it up and enjoy! This keeps very well in the refrigerator.
