The "miniature orange bell peppers" my husband thought he was growing turned out to be habeneros (oops!). Not wanting to waste them, I came across this recipe and thought "what the heck!". Now I like a nice "bite" to my hot-sauce, but we're not fire-eaters so I made this sauce using only 5 peppers. I used about a tablespoon of the mustard - I just didn't see the need to add 1/2 c. when there is already so much vinegar in the recipe, and prepared mustard tends to overpower flavors. We also did not have coriander on hand, so that was also omitted. I used 1/2 honey & 1/2 molasses so it wouldn't be so dark, as others have mentioned.
The sauce is WONDERFUL - just sweet enough and just spicy enough with just enough heat for the wimps in this house, although I am sure it will heat up a little more once it sits. The next time I make this sauce, I will use 1 tsp. of ground dry mustard instead of prepared, and I am considering adding red pepper flakes to add another layer of flavor. THANKS!!
