“This is seriously hot!!! It's my attempt to reproduce Melinda's Hot Sauce from Belize. In order to preserve the unique flavor of the habanero's, don't cook them with the other ingredients. To cut the heat of this very hot sauce, increase the amount of carrots or decrease the number of chiles. Based on: Belizean Habanero Hot Sauce from The Habanero Cookbook by Dave DeWitt and Nancy Gerlach. I've found this is especially yummy if you're having plain old smashed potato(es). Just make up a batch, and then pour a little (q.v. 1 tablespoon) over the potato(es) and continue fork-mashing them.”
