1.  Put the peppers on the rack in the cooking pot of the Multicooker. Cover and set to Brown/Saute at 400°F. Roast peppers for about 1 hour, turning them every 20 minutes. After an hour of roasting, turn unit off and let peppers rest in the Multicooker with cover in place for about an hour to cool and to allow the skins to loosen.

2.  Once peppers have rested, remove and discard skins and seeds and roughly chop the peppers. Completely wipe out the cooking pot.

3.  Put the olive oil in the cooking pot and set to Brown/Sauté at 350°F. Once the unit is preheated, add the shallot and garlic and sauté until soft. Stir in the peppers with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper; sauté for a few additional minutes.

4.  Stir in the white wine and simmer until just about evaporated. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce temperature to 200°F to maintain light simmer and cook for an additional 30 minutes.

5. Blend sauce either in a blender or transfer sauce to a deep and narrow vessel to blend with an immersion blender.

6.  Add honey and remaining salt and pepper to taste.
