Ingredients for Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce

  • · 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and chopped
  • · 3-4 habanero peppers, seeded and chopped (adjust according to your spice preference)
  • · 1 small onion, diced
  • · 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • · 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • · 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • · 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • · Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions for Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Roast the Pineapple: Place the chopped pineapple on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the pineapple starts to caramelize around the edges.
  3. Prepare the Sauce Base: In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and minced garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add Heat: Stir in the chopped habanero peppers and cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Add the roasted pineapple to the saucepan along with apple cider vinegar and honey (or maple syrup). Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Simmer and Blend: Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to intensify. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  7. Blend to Perfection: Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Be cautious as blending hot liquids can cause splattering.
  8. Adjust Consistency: If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out by adding a little water or more apple cider vinegar.
  9. Taste and Adjust Seasoning: Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning according to your preference. Add more salt, pepper, honey, or vinegar if needed to balance the flavors.
  10. Store or Serve: Once cooled, store the sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Serve it as a dip for chips, a glaze for grilled meats, or a marinade for seafood and tofu.

Recipe Alternatives:

  • For a vegan version, substitute honey with maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • If habanero peppers are too spicy, you can use milder peppers like jalapeños or bell peppers for a gentler heat.

Tips for Improvement:

  • For a smokier flavor, grill the pineapple slices instead of roasting them in the oven.
  • Experiment with adding other tropical fruits like mango or papaya for a unique twist.
  • If you prefer a chunky texture, blend the sauce less or leave some pineapple pieces unblended.

Get ready to add a tropical punch to your dishes with this roasted pineapple and habanero sauce! It’s the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, sure to impress your taste buds and your guests. Enjoy experimenting with different dishes and spice levels to make it your own signature sauce!
