Tabasco Pepper and Capt. Wayne's Salsa

We finally have a ripe Tabasco pepper! It seemed like the thing would never turn orange. I am really curious about how its going to taste and its heat level. I expect, and hope, that it tastes something like the Tabasco sauce that carries it name.
it even looks hot
On the topic of peppers, Marianne made some of her famously delicious "Captain Wayne's Salsa" the other night with Jalapenos and tomatoes from our container garden. It gets its name from a 747 captain who taught her how to make it. This stuff is addictively good and has a massive kick. If we could bottle and sell it I think we'd be rich in no time. I'd share the recipe, but if I did I might end up in the desert... (Old Vegas reference)

I think you'll be pleased with your Tabasco peppers, and making the sauce just involves some peppers, vinegar, and salt.

That salsa looks fantastic. Nothing beats homemade salsa. Especially homemade salsa with a kick. I like me some spicy food.

Wow, that pepper looks good! Hot and spicy, I hope. Even the green peppers are hot and will make nice salsa.
