Bob's Habanero Hot Sauce - Liquid Fire

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Spice mix is OVERWHELMING! Trust me on this, use 1/4 of the cumin they recommend or eliminate it all together. Cumin is the dominate flavor of this sauce. I just dipped a knife into the sauce after letting it sit all night. All I taste is sweet, spicy cumin. A good recipe will marry flavors without one overpowering the other. I used ghost chilies (Naga Morich) peppers in my recipe. I only had to use 3 of them and MAN, IS IT HOT! They also taste better than habanero peppers do. I also used 1/2 of the mustard recommended based on others reviews. If it wasn't for the cumin it might be palatable. I recommend making a batch without the spice mix. Pour a little into a bowl and add the spices one by one. That way you can experiment with flavor profiles without ruining the entire dish. I will try this again and take my own advice in the process, but as for now this recipe gets 1 star from me.
