These made such a pretty jar...very nice after sitting several (and I mean several) days!! Dragon breath for sure! I used these in so many things! Thanks for sharing!

Whew! Those little babies are strong! Good, but I tried it after l day of sitting, and I think I will let it mellow for a few days, at least! Thank you Kelly!

These are very easy to make, best when left to marinate for a few days. Have other purposes. 1. They keep the mosquitos away. Yes they do! You would be shocked at how many people love these. I have people asking all the time for the recipe. They are also a very good garnish for Bloody Mary's!
