Hot ‘n’ Sweet

My habaneros are ripe so when I saw this bottle of fruit juice on sale at Kroger I grabbed it.  I muddled three habs and a half dozen cayenne peppers and dropped them into a pan with the juice to infuse their heat as the sauce reduced and added some Splenda for the sweetness part of the hot ‘n’ sweet.I decided to strain the peppers out to blend them in the Magic Bullet because I didn’t want those larger pieces.I added the juice and zest from a lemon and a lime and poured it all back into the juice bottle.  It’s clear-the-sinuses hot.  Like when a dollop of Chinese hot mustard goes up your nose hot.  Mercy!  A little dab’ll do ya!
