Hotter 'n' Heck Hot Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Red Hot Chili Peppe

Easy to make...has a nice flavor to it... Not for the faint of heart... This sauce has been known to clear a stuffy nose...I think this might just be one of the "hottest sauce's " you have tried...I tweaked this receipe from Emeril...BAM!!

Good stuff! I have a prolific habanero plant and this was the perfect way to use all those peppers! I used apple cider vinegar because the white stuff's a little too strong for our taste. No more store bought hot sauce for us! Thanks!
