Nice basic recipe to build off of but to make it as it is makes a very boring bland sauce thats not very hot and way to much vinegar taste. Will definately use this recipe as a base (starting point) but never again just as it is. - 15 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Great Hot Sauce. Pretty hot. Hubby loves it. Followed other reviews and added only 4 tbsp vinegar and some sugar like a teaspoon or so - 15 Sep 2008


Great recipe, good and hot! I halved it, and used white wine vinegar because I didn't have any cider vinegar. - 14 Nov 2010
