  • 3 jalapeno peppers
  • 2 red mid-spicy peppers - I used some Georgia Flames we grew this year
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or more, as desired
  • Salt to taste


Cooking Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice off the stems of the peppers and slice them in half lengthwise. Set them onto a lightly oiled baking sheet along with the garlic cloves.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the peppers are nicely charred. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  4. Peel off the pepper skins and garlic skins. Discard.
  5. Add peppers and garlic to a food processor, along with honey, olive oil and a bit of salt.
  6. Process to form a thick sauce. Add more olive oil if you want it thinner.
  7. Serve! I served mine over seared salmon.
