Peach Habanero BBQ Sauce

Sweet and fruity, with a hammer drop. That’s what you should expect from this peach habanero BBQ sauce. Any recipe that uses a dozen habanero peppers is meant for a true spicy food lover. If you’re one, you’ll love the extreme fruity heat here. It’s terrific on grilled chicken and oh-so-tasty as a dipping sauce. 

If twelve habaneros add too much heat, halve the amount. It’s still spicy, but without the big kick you get with twelve. This BBQ sauce will get spicier over time, too. So if you let it sit (covered and refrigerated) overnight, you’ll feel the full force of this sauce. The other flavors, too, have a lot more depth, so give the sauce some time to rest prior to use.
