Roasted Hot Sauce

A batch of scorpion peppers given to me by our gardener Fernando + a bowl full of tomatoes = base for a new hot sauce creation made by roasting and blending! For the first batch I used 4 scorpion peppers, 2 hot house tomatoes and a couple hand full of mixed grape tomatoes. Tossed all that with some good olive oil, salt, pepper and dried thyme, roasted it up and pureed in the Nutribullet. It was delicious, but even Fernando though it was really hot! I made a second more tame batch with 2 small but hot jalapeños from out own garden, 1 habanero, a pint of mixed grape tomatoes and about 12 Campari tomatoes (seasoned the same as the first batch). Also delicious but slightly tamer!

Our own pepper garden is about to start producing, so stay tuned for more hot sauce madness!
