    I’ve tried this recipe several times and I’m not going to try any others for a while……it’s very tasty & can be as hot as necessary……I added a few “Congo” peppers in my last brewing.
    Thanks for sharing….Truly appreciated

    Just made this the other day. I had to ride my bike 2 hours to the Guayanese/Trini part of Brooklyn to find the shado beni but it was worth it. Never buying hot sauce again.

    Hi Felix,
    How are you? I will try this sauce, but do you have the one to make pepper sauce chunky style? I remember having that in trinidad. I believe they would put fresh lime slices in it. Thanks.

    We call that one lime pepper sauce. Will do it soon.

    Hello Felix.
    I am a Trini transplant living in Oklahoma and it might be difficult to get Chadon Beni down here. Is there another herb that I might substitute for Chadon Beni?
    Thank you.

    I am a pepper eating champion as is all trinis….I have eaten many varieties of pepper from sweet to very spicy it is an addicition as I religiously eat the hottest sacue with my food as well as any hot pepper I can find…flavor is key and i find this combination of ingredients the most flavorful…cheers

    Hi Felix,

    like Nello, I cannot find Chadon Beni in Fredericton, and am not too keen on buying it online… I miss having it growing in my backyard!

    Is there any substitute? I was thinking coriander, but wondered if you have some ideas.

    Thank you!

      You can use Cilantro

    Hi Felix,

    Would the vinegar not give it a sort of bitter-ish or acidic taste? I want to make this, but I don’t like acidic tasting pepper sauce…

      The main purpose of the vinegar is to preserve the pepper sauce. This pepper sauce does not taste acidic. If you want you can substitute it with water but don’t expect it to last long.

    Do you just use malt vinegar?

      We used white vinegar.

    Just FYI….my man is Trini, I am not….I decided to try and surprise him one day (he is a pepper sauce junkie….and was about to run out!) and make this for him. Wellll……He thought it was great! Thanks a TON for this! He was so happy! :) Cant wait to try and make other things!

    What would the amount of cilantro be. How much of a substitute to use?

    • Felix
      December 16, 2013 • 9:03 pm

      Just double the amount.

    Hey there – this looks so great! I live in Singapore and am dying for a roti always… :( I am feeling very motivated to make this and to try to at least make some doubles to go with it, and will try it with cilantro as I can’t find chadon beni… One thing – can I also substitute vinegar with lime juice? I think I’ve had it made that way before too… Thanks so much for this!!!!! :) Michelle

      Hi Michelle.
      You’re welcome. Yes, you can substitute the vinegar with lime juice. It should not be a problem, however keep it refrigerated.

    Hi there!

    When is the pepper sauce ready to eat? Does it have to sit for awhile?

    Planning on making this tonight!
