This Jamaican Hot Sauce also known as (Scotch Bonnet Sauce) is made the traditional way with fresh scotch bonnet peppers with the addition of orange juice which really enhances this sauces flavor. 

This sauce goes well with Jerk Chicken or Jamaican Pepper Shrimp

Jamaican Hot Sauce

Traditional Jamaican Hot Sauce has lime juice in it. I replaced that with Orange Juice and it is so so good. A must try! Especially over JERK CHICKEN

How Hot is A Scotch Bonnet Pepper

According to Forbes. A Scotch Bonnet Pepper has a heat rating of 100,000-350,000, the scotch bonnet can be up to 40 times hotter than a typical jalapeño pepper.

The Yellow and Red are the hottest. Yellow has the best flavor. If you find a purple one beware that is the hottest of them all.

This homemade Jamaican Hot Sauce is so FRESH you ARE GOING to want to have this in your fridge at all times. 
You can replace the Orange Juice with Pineapple or Mango Juice if you prefer.
All 3 of those fruits work so well in this sauce!
