You might remember my post a year or so ago entitled Too hot to handle! about my home made red Habanero sauce. Beth’s Dad’s just sent down a bunch more for us in the mail from his tree so I can make some more soon – I’ll wear gloves this time!
When we went to Nova Petropolis a few weeks ago I found a commercial one which was pretty hot and had a nice flavour, but yesterday when we went to Caxias I found a new one which you can see in the right-hand picture below (my home-made one is on the left, and the one from Nova Petropolis in the middle).
