First of all, I halved the recipe. I didn't have any thai peppers, so I used a couple of jalepenos. They weren't quite spicy enough, so I added about a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper, which was just about perfect- smooth and sweet with a little bite on the back end. The half recipe made four half pints. Looking forward to giving it as a gift with Christmas!
