  • 1 pound red chili peppers chopped (see comments above - try ghost peppers, Scotch Bonnets, habaneros, or even milder peppers - or a combination of them all!)
  • 1 8- ounce can sliced peaches in heavy syrup pears works well, too
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Set oven to broil.
  2. Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and set them onto a baking sheet. Broil them about 15-20 minutes, or until the skins char and blister. Don’t get too close to the heat source. Remove, cool, and peel.
  3. Add peaches to a food processor and process until fairly smooth.
  4. Add chili peppers, molasses, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper, cumin, and ginger. Process until smooth.
  5. At this point, you can strain through a food mill if you want a silkier style sauce. Or, simply pour directly into a bowl or jar and cover.
  6. Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to mingle.
