Pineapple & Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce

Posted by Nick on 12th Jun 2023

Scotch bonnet chillies and pineapple belong together; this topical hot sauce is an absolute winner of a sauce.

The recipe has minimal ingredients, takes no time to make, and lasts ages in the fridge. Not like that would matter as this sauce would fly out, it’s the perfect sauce for fried chicken.

Scotch Bonnet Chillies are a significant step up in spiciness (100,000 to 350,000 SHU) and provide more tropical fruitiness than regular chillies.

These scotch bonnets are a terrific fit; just be ready for that substantial increase in spiciness.
