I created my third hot sauce yesterday! I wanted to try something seasonal and I decided to go with pumkin habanero.


I found some recipes online but mostly created this on the fly.


6 Habaneros - Roasted

.6 lbs canned pumpkin

1.5 cups apple cider vinegar

1.5 cups water

Salt (to taste)

Cinnamon Sugar (to taste)


The flavor came out with a nice sweet taste almost like pumpkin pie but it also delivered the kick I was looking for with the habaneros. I would definitely recommend this! It yielded 3 full 8 oz. jars.


If anyone has any additional tips on pumpkin sauces or has any other feedback, let me know!


Also, if you try it...good luck!

Sounds interesting but what would you put this on?

I love pumpkin Pie but to me it doesn't pair very well with anything.


Maybe ice cream?




Spicy pumpkin pie ice cream.........mmmmm

Love the Pumpkin Habaneros I grew this year, one of my staples for the future. Still got some Frozen Pumpkin pieces in the freezer :)

I base most of my sauces on pumpkin or squash. I love the flavour and the thickness they give to the sauce, and I use it with about every food. My family and friend's that have tried it like it a lot as well.

maybe a touch of nutmeg? drizzle on ice cream or mix with some cream cheese for crackers, bet it would be epic!

Tis the season for seasonal hot sauces, I just posted this same recipe in another post!  Still had it on theclipboard~~  :lol:



Pumpkin Hot Sauce- Hot

1 can Pumpkin (~2 pounds)

5 # fresh red Peppers (Fresno, the generic red chiles from the supermarket)

2 bags Dried Cranberries (sweetened Craisins)

10 oz Sweet Onion 

4 oz Garlic

6-8 leaves of Fresh Sage

2 cups balsamic vinegar

1 tsp Sea salt

Beer &/or wine to cover


This turned out fairly thick, we had to use a good bit of wine/beer to thin it out.  One time we used white wine, another time it was a good hearty dark beer.  


You could use a couple of red bell peppers for some bulk and whatever hot peppers you want.  Follow the usual cook/blend/heat/hotfill-hold~~~



It went well on all kinds of white meats, not too sweet.  

We used the wide mouth sauce bottles (like a salad dressing bottle)m instead of woozies.  Too Thick, but you can make it the consistency you want.


Apple juice could be used also, instead of beer or wine.

The Chile Addict's prayer-"Lord, grant me the wisdom to know it will be too hot, the courage to eat it anyway, and the serenity to accept the pain that follows. Amen"
