Buzzard's Breath Barbecue Sauce
 2 c Chopped onions
1 c Very strong coffee
1 c Worcestershire sauce
1 c Catsup
1/2 c Cider vinegar
1/2 c Brown sugar
3 tb Chili powder
1 Pureed Habanero pepper -
-include seeds**
4 Garlic cloves, pressed
1 ts Pepper, freshly ground

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer for 15 minutes. Puree in a blender or food processor.

Meanwhile, place 2 pint-sized jars in a large pot of boiling water. Boil for 15 minutes. Bring a small pan of water to a simmer and place two canning lids in the water; remove pan from heat.

With tongs remove one jar from boiling water, empty water from jar and fill with barbecue sauce. Place a canning lid on top and seal with band. Repeat with other hot jar.

This makes a nice gift when going to someone's house for a barbecue. It doesn't last very long!

** Habanero Peppers are the hottest. If you can't find them in your Mexican foods aisle at the grocery store, or you want less heat you can substitute Jalapeno Peppers.
