Oh my goodness... That would be horrible! I always HATE making spicy stuff cause no matter how hard you scrub your hands when you take your contacts out at night it always burns still.

Capsaicin, the heat in hot peppers, is a strong alkaline. I find if I 'wash' my hands with vinegar, a strong acid, then soap and water, there are no issues. This method is tried and true for milder peppers like jalapeņos and serranos. If you try it with hotter peppers, you do so at your own risk.

Kathleen got me this really cute "Hot Sauce" kit one year. It had 3 bottles, a rack, some spices and a book. There was a mango habanero sauce that was divine. I don't have the book anymore and all the recipes I have found aren't it. Feh.

Perhaps Jerry Lee had an experience with hot peppers?

Just add a bunch more of everything in the recipe but peppers. Two times more, or three times if necessary. If you add yogurt, peanut butter, vinegar, or anything else not in the original recipe it will totally destroy your hot sauce.

Why totally destroy the hot Sauce????

Tone it down I see.

But destroy???? I see no reason to do so.


To each his/her own.

Sir Loin's suggestion is exactly on point. It won't "destroy" the sauce.

The way to remedy something that is too hot/salty/sweet etc is to make more if it without the offending element and combine.

Maybe you misunderstood him?
