“This is a wonderful recipe for hot sauce that may be used in many recipes, if you are a lover of spicy sauce then you will love this, I make it all the time and use it in many recipes --- you may adjust the habanero peppers to suit heat level, for milder heat use 8 and for extreme heat use 12, I use the 12 habaneros my family loves extreme heat!--- a few dashes of sauce is all that is needed, this is hot and please use gloves while handling the hot peppers --- I have left the liquid smoke seasoning as optional I like to add it in, use only canned not fresh peaches for this sauce, servings is of coarse estimated --- you will love this!”
