    1                    habanero (to have medium heat - add more
                         if you like)
    2                    carrots
    3      cloves        garlic
      1/4  cup           water
    2      tbsp.         chopped white onion
    1      tsp.          salt
    3      tbsp.         freshly squeezed lemon juice
 	  1/4  cup	     ginger pickle juice (or substitute fresh -- 1 tsp.
     sugar
                         ginger and a little water)
    1      teaspoon      sugar
      1/2                orange zestted
 
  I steamed the carrots and garlic with water until soft in the microwave.
 (You could use them raw for a sharper flavour and crunchier texture.) Put
 everything in the blender and pureed till smooth. Adjust flavours. (More
 lemon or salt might be good.)
 It was delicious as a thick condiment with my pasta with pesto, and also a
 great topping on a cold potato salad today. The sauce thickened overnight in
 the refrigerator, and I suspect it will keep for about a week. 
 It’s such a beautiful, bright orange colour!
