Peachy Sweet Onion Hot Sauce

Peachy Sweet Onion Hot Sauce

Yields: 5 ½ cups


2 medium sweet onions, sliced

½ cup sugar

½ tsp. salt

1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste

4 medium peaches, peeled and chopped

3 tablespoons green tabasco (milder than regular tabasco)

1/3 cup cider vinegar

½ tsp. cayenne pepper

3 cups water


1.       Heat a medium-large stockpot over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.  Add sliced onions and sauté until translucent and slightly turning brown (about 7-10 minutes)

2.       Add sugar, salt, and tomato paste.  Sauté for a minute or two.  Stir in peaches, green tabasco, cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, and water and bring to boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

3.       Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.  Using a stick blender, blend sauce until smooth and no chunks remain.  If using a regular blender, transfer liquid using a ladle and blend in batches.

4.       Transfer to serving dish or store in refrigerator for up to a week.  Alternatively, this sauce can be stored in freezer or canned for later use.
