Habanero sauce

Homemade habanero sauce is a great way to use up a summer bounty of hot peppers. Be warned, this stuff is HOT. It's not really meant for eating all by itself, unless you're into that kind of thing. It's a great addition to salsas and soups, though, to really liven things up a bit.

Be sure to wear gloves while chopping the habaneros!

12 habaneros, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup lime juice

Saute onion and garlic in veg oil until soft. Add the carrots with a little water. Boil, reduce, and simmer until the carrots are soft. Puree in blender with the peppers until smooth. Combine puree with vinegar and lime juice, and simmer an additional 5 minutes.
