Ethnicity:Other     Food Type:Canning
Preparation Time:n/a     Servings:n/a     Author: Valley Tyminski

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots (chopped)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 12 Habanero peppers, seeded and chopped
  • Steps:
  • Combine all the ingredients, except for the habaneros, in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes or until the carrots are soft. (Adjust the heat by adding fewer habaneros – not by increasing the carrots, as this can alter the flavor.)
  • Place ALL the ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Strain for a smoother sauce.
  • Pour in sterilized jars, place jars in canner.
  • Cover canner; return water to a boil.
  • Process - boil filled jars for 20 minutes. Remove jars. Cool undisturbed 24 hours. Check jar seals. Sealed lids curve downward. Remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars. Store screw bands separately or replace loosely on jars, as desired.
  • Label and store in a cool, dark place.
  • Yields 2.5 cups or 5 - 4 ounce jars
