Pineapple Habanero Salsa

So it's that time of year again when we use fresh ingredients grown from our gardens or bought at the local farmer's market.  I love fresh ingredients that I can grill up and make into something completely surprising and delicious!

Never in my life did I ever think I would grow habanero peppers in my garden, but this year my husband's co-worker gave us several spicy pepper plants.  I occasionally cook with jalapenos and use a serrano pepper every now and then, but I had NO idea what to do with the habaneros!  We gave a ton to a friend of ours who will EAT THEM RAW!!  Yes, you read that correctly but he pops those things in like "no big deal".  Seriously, he's crazy!

I mean, look at those beauties.  Even their color is HOT!

I had my hubby grill up some pineapple and tomatoes and get a good char on the peppers.  Then we blended it all up and WOAH (I'm really using a lot of capitals in the post, haha)!!  The salsa really packs a punch!  My husband would eat it straight from the bowl, but I needed to use it sparingly on top of my burger.  This salsa is on the sweeter side with a definite kick.  And I mean "pain in the ears" kind of kick!

You can almost see the heat rising!
