    LaJuneBug's Note:

    From my heros at America's Test Kitchen (Cooks Illustrated, Summer 2008). The cooking time is actually the resting time needed for the acid in the lime juice to mellow the flavors. Match this to grilled pork, chicken, shrimp, or scallops.

      Being a huge fan of America's Test Kitchen I just had to try this and I am sure glad I did. It is really good. Sweet corn is just coming in season here and I have chives in my herb garden so I had all the best ingredients. I did use a Jalapeno from the garden instead of the habanero. I just made this and I plan to have it with some chicken. I'll bet you could use some nice peaches to change it up a bit. Thanks for posting .
