Infused Hot Sauce
1 ½ cups hot sauce (uncooked)
Spice things up with LĒVO's easy-to-follow infused hot sauce recipe.
½ small onion
5 cloves of garlic
½ cup apple cider vinegar
½ lb fresh habanero peppers
2 tbsp LEVO-infused oil (ideally canola or avocado)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
juice of one orange
1 tbsp honey
To make your LEVO-infused oil (canola or avocado), first pack your LEVO herb pod with flower.
Set your Activate cycle and relax (remember, this is a dry cycle, no oil or butter should be added until you begin infusing!)
Fill the LEVO reservoir with the oil. If using canola oil, set it to 175-185°F for 2.5+ hours. For avocado oil, set your LEVO to 200°F for 2.5+ hours.
Relax! Once it's complete, dispense and set aside.
Dice onion and set aside.
Juice orange into a small bowl, taking care to remove seeds.
With gloves remote the stems and seeds from habanero peppers. Place in a bowl.
In a saucepan heat canola oil to medium low. Add spices and saute in until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Keep an eye on these spices as they bloom to ensure nothing burns.
Add onion, garlic and a pinch of salt. Sautée on medium for another 5 minutes.
Turn off heat and add 2 tbsp of LEVO-infused oil to the mixture. Be sure to use gloves when handling habanero peppers and wash hands directly afterwards.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Strain if desired. Keep refrigerated for up to one week.
