Pain is Good Batch #114 Jamaican Hot Sauce By: Original Juan
Spicy Jamaican jerk sauce is the inspiration behind Original Juan’s Pain Is Good: Batch #114.
While habanero peppers, pineapple juice, and a blend of classic jerk spices are the star ingredients in this thick and chunky hot sauce, the savory tomato base provides an excellent counterpoint to the bright, fruity habaneros and sweet, juicy pineapple.
The peppers’ citrusy flavor is enhanced by a blend of lemon and lime juices… and although the taste of the vinegar is subtle, its acidity highlights the tartness of the pineapple juice while showcasing the habaneros’ heat and flavor.
The lack of sugar keeps the sauce from being too fruit-forward.
Original Juan adds just the right amount of roasted garlic to complement the tomatoes as well as the habaneros, giving the sauce a bold, savory undertone… but it’s the Jamaican jerk spices that bring everything together, with hints of thyme, nutmeg, and cinnamon swirling around strong notes of allspice and clove.
The rich and flavorful spice blend harmonizes perfectly with the pineapple, roasted garlic, and tomatoes, while keeping the focus on the fruity, savory flavor of the habanero peppers. With its balanced flavors and fiery habanero heat, this savory blend of peppers, pineapple, tomatoes, vinegar, and spices makes a great introduction to Jamaican-style hot sauce.
