    I just finished making a batch of this and was fairly pleased with the results. Next time, I think I'll go easy on the liquid smoke and cumin. Cutting both in half. I can always add more! Also, if it's to be used as a salsa, it should be a bit thicker. A couple of hours in the refrigerator, however, ought to stiffen up the molasses and honey.  -  09 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Author's note: we've modified the recipe slightly and feel it is much better with only 1/2 tablespoon of cumin.  -  01 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used 8 habaneros (instead of 6) and added 6 fresh figs (that I just picked and needed to be used up) and this came out great. There is a lot of depth and lots of flavors. It is great on tortilla chips. My boyfriend really liked it a lot as well. I made it in the food processor instead of the blender and it was very easy to do. Definitely worth trying.  -  29 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
