Jalapeno sauce

Current obsession. I start getting really panicky when my jar of this is getting low and there are no backup jalapenos in the cupboard.

This is my homemade version of the Jalapeno Sauce from Trader Joes, which is sadly not available in Tairua. I will admit, I was suspicious about this sauce. How do you improve on jalapenos? Turns out you sauce them. Honestly. It’s like mainlining jalapenos.

1 jar of pickled jalapenos

1/4 C oil (I usually use rice bran)

Drain jalapenos, save approx 1/4 C pickling juice

Put in a blender with oil

Blend. Smother on everything. Wonder why you ever bothered chewing.
