Hot Pepper Sauce

  • Bryant Terry calls this his "attempt to replicate the oh-so-slammin' hot sauce" at New York City restaurant loloff. Sara Remington

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
Coarse sea salt
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 habañero chile, minced
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 teaspoons apple cider
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

In a saucepan over low heat, warm the oil. Add the onion, cumin, cayenne, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sauté until the onions start to carmelize, about 8 minutes.

Stir in the garlic and chile; sauté for 2 more minutes. Add the tomato paste, tomato sauce, vinegar, and water. Mix well and simmer until it starts to thicken, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Transfer all ingredients into an upright blender, add the white pepper, and purée until smooth. Season with additional salt to taste. Store in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.

This sauce is a perfect accompaniment to black-eyed pea fritters or anything else you want to spice up.
