    If you are looking for a mild hot sauce this is great! Very tasty, big hit! Next year I will try with hotter peppers for other members of the family who thought this was too mild (I don't eat hot stuff too much so I thought it was quite spicy This recipe was indeed easy,I am very much a novice at cooking anything and am learning a lot by mistakes very quickly I think this recipe should come with a warning for people like me who don't know anything about cooking: When you boil those peppers open the windows turn the fan on and stand away from the stove (I choked everyone out of the kitchen with the capsacin-loaded steam that came from the pot), Also--I do know you should wear gloves when working with hot peppers but I threw caution to the wind in that respect--I thought I had washed it all off (washed many many times) but I ended up burning my eyes when I got up in the morning! and my fingertips started burning again each timeI washed my hands. Rub aloe vera on fingers thoroughly then wash off the goopy stuff, repeat if necessary (it took two times for me but then the burning was completely gone)  -  19 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    mmmm so good. I did add a bit of my own touch to this. I added 4 cloves of garlic with the peppers while they boiled. I also left all the seeds in while boiling. Then I added a handful of cilantro as well as the juice from 1 lime. It turned out very spicy and extremely flavorful.  -  30 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
