This sauce is AWESOME.<div><br /></div><div>Do not be afraid to let this mixture simmer so that it becomes pasty (a little beyond softening the carrots.)</div><div><br /></div><div>For people looking to really push their limits to prepare for hotter peppers I recommend VERY CAREFULLY using the seeds as well.</div> item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a simple and cheap recipe to create. It's not for the weak by any means but Habanero should be pretty obvious to people that it requires a good tolerance for spice to try anything involving this pepper. Over all the recipe turned out good. In my opinion the spice level is just right, but i do feel that there's something missing in the recipe but I'm not quite sure what yet but I do plan to play around with this recipe in hopes to find out what's missing or what i can mix it with to make it just right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a very good sauce, but not for the person that thinks Tabasco sauce is hot. Don't bash it because it's hot, the 'Habanero' in the name should give you that clue. This is just a basic sauce and you should realize that before you post a negative review. I always adjust it to my liking and adding onions is a given to me. It's up to the individual to make those adjustments. I also don't use the sauce as is, I use it to add to things like salsa, and ketchup. It makes an awesome Habanero ketchup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ted obviously has never tasted a Habanero before. They are hot. If it is heat that you are looking for than just eat the habanero, dont waste your time making this sauce. Very spicy... but that is to be expected when using habaneros. I was hoping for something with a little flavor to accompany the spice. Next time i will try one that has a few more ingredients like onions and lime juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
