      A definite keeper!!! Everyone loved these!! I couldn't find habenaro, so used a lg jalapeno instead and it was the perfect amount of heat. Anymore, and they wouldn't have been as enjoyable. Made the sauce the night before my party, let it sit out until soft again, and spread it on before bbqing. Perfect blend of flavours, I can't wait to make it again soon!!!
