    I made this Pepper Sauce today, and I must is the hottest I've ever had! But here's the also has a lot of flavor. Some people like just heat; but if there's no flavor, then it's no different than a mouthful of fire. I didn't change anything at all since it was my first time making it. But maybe next time I will use just 10 habaneros so some of my friends will be able to eat it without bursting into flames! Thanks for a great recipe.  -  25 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have little experience with hot sauces, but I saw this and wanted to make it for my hubby who loves anything hot. However, I took someone else's suggestion to only use 10 peppers. I was, at first, disappointed because I tried it and could tolerate it (I'm a bit wimpy). The taste was wonderful, but there was only a little heat. Then it hit me. Wow! This stuff is fantastic! I love it and it was a huge hit in my house.  -  04 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
