By Lynn Kerrigan


(Also visit our main Halloween Party and Recipes page)


2-cups chopped onions
1 cup very strong coffee
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup catsup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 puréed Habanero pepper—include seeds**
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes. purée in a blender or food processor. Divide sauce between 2 pint-sized, sterilized jars with canning lids. This makes a nice homemade gift combined with a barbecue cookbook or some other barbecue accessory.

** Habanero peppers are the hottest. If you can't find them in your Mexican food aisle at the grocery store, or you want less heat, you may substitute jalapeño peppers.
