Caribbean Hot Sauce
Don't those bottles of Caribbean hot sauce look delicious? My mouth waters just looking at them. Uncle Daddy is a BIG fan of West Indies hot sauce!
In the US most folks say "hot sauce", but in the West Indies they are typically called "hot pepper sauce". And hot peppers they are! The most common peppers used are habanero and scotch bonnet. The scotch bonnet is most common in Jamaica. Both are very hot peppers and make some firey sauces.
Similar to American-style sauces, West Indies hot pepper sauces are made from chili peppers and vinegar, with fruits and vegetables such as mango, papaya, and carrots added for extra flavor. Yellow mustard is also not an unusual ingredient with these sauces. Over time each island developed its own unique recipes. Local small-batch sauces are still common.
