Spicy Barbados Pepper Sauce

Rated as 3.83 out of 5 Stars

"The sauce is good on just about anything from pork, chicken, and seafood. I like it on boneless-skinless chicken breast seasoned with fresh thyme, salt and pepper, broiled until about done then heavily basted with the sauce to finish. This recipe fills a Dutch oven over half the pan. Plenty for leftovers."

This was just OK. Followed the recipe exactly. Was far far far too sweet for my taste & not very spicy at all. Was expecting - hoping for - a fiery sauce. Very disappointing. It was ok, but...

This fails as a 'hot' sauce. UNLESS you have a sensitive palate... 3 med-hot peppers to what amounts to at least 3 POUNDS of filler (onion, garlic, mango, etc) would severely reduce the heat. B...
