Peach-Habañero Barbecue Sauce
by Ariane Duarte, CulinAriane, Montclair, New Jersey
This recipe combines the juicy sweetness of peaches with spicy habañero chiles for the perfect, flavorful addition to grilled Smart Chicken.
- 8 peaches, halved and pitted
- 1 (10-ounce) bottle of barbecue sauce
- 2 cups molasses
- 2 (6-ounce) cans tomato paste
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups ketchup
- 2 habañero chiles, chopped
In a large saucepot, combine all barbecue sauce ingredients. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and puree the sauce with a hand-held or upright blender. (Always use caution when blending hot liquids: Remove the center cap of the blender lid and place a towel over the hole before turning on the blender. The towel allows the steam to escape while blending.) Pour the sauce through a China cap strainer.
