Fantastic!!! I used habaneros intead of scotch bonnet peppers - the heat factor is about the same but I love the flavor of those habs! There was some time involved in the cooking but the result was well worth the effort. This recipe made a lot and I'm looking forward to seeing if the heat factor goes up as the flavors meld in the next couple of days. Thanks for a great salsa recipe!
