Andrew's profanity sauce - hot sauce recipie

I've even mucking about with my own hot sauces for a while now, and in much the same way that brewing my own beer has given me the opportunity to create some tastes that can't be bought, so has making my own hot sauce. Here's the recipe I made up as I went along this morning. It takes moments and doesn't involve any actual cooking!

INGREDIENTS
2x packs of dried habaneros
1x pack of dried naga chillies
3x tins of peach halves in syrup
2x tablespoons of ground cumin
1x tablespoon of ground coriander
1/2 tablespoon of turmeric
1/2 tablespoon ground white pepper
1x tablespoon salt
3x tablespoons sugar

HOW TO MAKE HOT SAUCE FROM DRIED CHILLI PEPPERS
1. Soak the dried peppers in boiling water straight from the kettle for about half an hour.
2. Drain the water and put the chillies in a food processor and add the rest of the ingredients
3. Blend the whole chuffin' lot until smooth.
4. Consume!

This sauce is pretty brutal, so watch out! If you like Jalfriezi then you'll probably love this sauce,a even although it doesn't have an obvious curry flavour.

P.S Don't try whizzing the chillies in the blender on their own, I made that mistake and within seconds my eyes started streaming and I could hear my daughter start coughing (she was the other side of the house!).
