Hot Sauce

Categories: [ Cooking ]

As I cannot find any Blair's Original Death Sauce in shops, I decided to reverse-engineer it, from memory. This is the result.


  • 25 g carrot
  • 11 g freshly grated garlic
  • 3.5 g fresh coriander leaves
  • 5 g mineral salt (Seltin)
  • 1.5 g powdered paprika
  • 0.2 g smoked paprika
  • 4 g sugar
  • 1.5 g powdered onion
  • 0.5 g dried parsley
  • 10 g tomato concentrate
  • 15 mL lemon juice
  • 150 mL Poppamies Habanero sauce (1 bottle)
  • water


  • 1 very small saucepan and matching kitchen stove
  • 1 0.1 g-precision scale
  • assorted measuring spoons (15 mL , 50 mL)
  • 1 clean and empty habanero sauce bottle (or another container for the leftover sauce).
  • 1 clean small funnel that fits into the bottle
  • 1 electric kettle


Chop the carrot finely, rinse and chop the coriander leaves.

In a very small saucepan, boil 1/2 dL water and add the carrots. Let it boil, then add the garlic, coriander, salt, paprika, smoked paprika, sugar, powdered onion and dried parsley. Let boil until the carrots are soft, stirring from time to time (keep an eye on it, it takes only a few minutes). If the water evaporates too quickly, just add more water and let it boil again. Then add the tomato concentrate, lemon juice and habanero sauce and boil once more.

Blend the preparation with an immersion blender until smooth and set aside.

Rinse the empty habanero sauce bottle, and preferably get a second bottle, as there will be more than 150 mL sauce.

Boil water in a kettle and use it immediately to fill the bottles and the screw caps to sterilize them. Also pour some of that water in and outside of a small funnel. Estimate the thickness of the sauce, add boiled water and stir to make it thinner. I added 30 mL water, maybe 20 mL would have been enough? Then empty the bottles (careful, they are hot) and pour the sauce into them with the funnel. Put the screw caps and store in the refrigerator. I use on such batch over several months, it seems to be keeping well.
