Roasted habaneros are a great way to add to dishes. Just toss them into anything requiring some spicy kick, such as salads, stews, soups, even sprinkled over main dishes. Roasting is also a great way to preserve the peppers. Simple roast or bake them, then store in airtight containers or in vinegar.
A simple method is to bake 20 to 30 peppers at 200 degrees for about one hour. Here is a simple recipe to follow:
- 30 habanero peppers, sliced in half
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- Pinch of salt
Combine the habaneros in a large bowl with garlic, olive oil, brown sugar and salt. Toss and refrigerate at least one hour. Spread over a baking dish and bake one hour at 200 degrees, or until the habaneros shrink and shrivel to resemble raisins. Perfect for serving!
