Molten Lava

HottestSauceA friend, who shares my passion for spicy food and good beer, sent me a message while he and his wife were away on a trip.  His message said something to the effect that “I found the hottest fuckin’ sauce; I’m going to get some for you.”  And he did.  It’s in a tiny plastic bottle, probably no more than four and half inches tall.  Every drop of this stuff packs an incredible punch.

This morning, I had an odd breakfast…a toasted English muffin smeared with some rather soupy home-made black bean dip (my experiments don’t always succeed).  Though the bean dip had a moderate bite, I thought I’d kick it up a notch.  Just three little drops of this stuff on each half of the muffin.  It enlivened the bean dip beautifully!  But it’s the after-effect that gets you.  About 30 seconds after finishing the two halves of the muffin, I began to feel like I had taken a few pieces of hot coals into my mouth.  Fortunately, the screaming burn did not last long, maybe two or three minutes, but during that time I cursed myself for having put that third drop on each piece of the muffin.  One always begins with just two drops of molten lava, isn’t that it?

Thanks, Jim.  I believe this little 1.5 ounce bottle should last me well into my eighties, maybe my nineties.

    That’s too funny, John! Oh, and the name…love it!

    I’d just made some salsa habanero a while back from a recipe called “Roasted Habanero Salsa from Hell”. It lived up to its title…I felt steam escape from my ears, and sweat the rest out!! I have since, fiddled with that recipe to lower the level of “picante”, and have been successful. Mind you, it still packs a wallop, but now it carries some flavor with it. The recipe states that it will keep up to 6 weeks if covered and refrigerated, for its so potent that even mold and bacteria dare not go near the stuff!
