HAM spelled backwards
Pineapple-Peach Hot Sauce
There is a Mexican bar/grill called Parilla in my hometown of Boise, ID. They have some really great and creative burritos, but my favorite part of eating there is the hot sauce selection. They have about five hot sauces (ranging in hotness) that incorporate unconventional flavors and combinations. One of my favorites is their “Pineapple Peach” hot sauce, which hits a perfect balance between spicy and sweet. However, I no longer live in Boise so I had to come up with a compromise. Yesterday I did some internet research and found that it is actually very simple to make at home. I couldn’t find a recipe that was exactly what I wanted, so I experimented with combining a few and came up with something great. The color and flavors are vibrant and the heat level won’t disappoint. Here is my recipe for homemade pineapple peach hot sauce. 

1/2 fresh pineapple, peeled and cored, chopped 
1 white peach, peeled and pitted, chopped
4 habanero peppers. stems and seeds removed
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
Add pineapple, peach and habaneros to food processors and blend until pureed. Add puree to small skillet and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to a simmer. Stir occasionally and cook for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Pour into a squirt bottle (or empty Sriracha bottle) and enjoy.
