Instead of 800g Jalapenos, i used around 400g. I also added 100grams of Carolina Reaper, 100grams of Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, 100grams of Anji Lemon and 100grams of Habanero.

It’s hands down the best sause i’ve ever eaten. Everyone that tries it want a jar of it, so i will do it again, many times!

Delicious but…

This recipe is delicious. However, if you want to make it you should know that A) it will make far more than three cups. I filled five jars, and B) the only way that it takes ten minutes to prep is if the vegetables are already prepared. It took two people over an hour to prepare the vegetables before even getting to the cooking stage.

It was totally worth it, though!
