  1. I once had a garden and grew a lot of different chili peppers. I had a chili pepper cookbook and there was a recipe VERY similar to this for a habanero mustard. It was basically this recipe with mustard powder added, and it was delicious! Made a great ham sandwich.

  2. I think this sauce Gail would be great on these mock chicken I have in the freezer – would give it a great taste. Great thing about the mock chicken I have is that it tastes like soy not chicken which for me is good. I think I would have to make this sauce a little less hot for me though. But loving the sound of it.

  3. Gail – I’ve never heard of carrots in a hot sauce, this is intriguing! I love jerk sauce, but I’ve never made it. This is so tempting. Thanks for the recipe!
