I was very intriqued by this recipe in it's use of fruit along with savory spices. I never would have thought to add these things together, but they truly work. Excellent either over frozen vanilla yogurt/icecream, or by itself. I did opt out of using Tabasco as I'm not a fan. :-) Made for FrenchForum's Herb of the Month - Bay~

This was so intreging I just HAD to make it. I topped a homemade vanilla icecream with this and can safely say it was LOVED by all even the ones that are afraid of hot stuff and the little ones
