Every year I make a fermented guava hot sauce that’s to die for. There’s just something so magical about how chile peppers, fruit, salt, and a bit of time come together to create a hot sauce that’s wonderfully unique and complex. It’s slightly different every time I make it. And while that outcome might be frustrating for some, I love it. This year, I decided to try making a fermented hot sauce with passion fruit. The passion fruit vine that I planted last summer is going absolutely wild, so I felt ok about the potential failure of this experiment. Much to my delight, however, this hot sauce came out great. It’s very hot because it’s made with habanero peppers. But the flavor is superb.
