I believe that the hottest hot sauce you can get without a permit is Dave’s Instant Insanity Sauce. It is also one of the best tasting.That is an unsolicited product endorsement. If you think differently, fine, but you have not tried it so don’t be so sure!!!Why do I mention this?Because every now and then I eat some (very carefully) and am reminded that everyone else must know about it. A few hints:Don’t handle this sauce directly. Do not let children near it. Shake well before opening. Shake a small amount into a container, and mix that with some component of what you are eating …. like some olive oil or sour cream or whatever, and mix it into that material with a spoon that you are not very fond of. Then take that bit of stuff and further mix it into the food you are preparing.In other words, do everything you can to make sure there is no concentrated material in anything you eat or serve to others.This is not something you can just dump on a taco. That would be irresponsible.When you are done, cap the bottle and rinse it off, and either throw the spoon out or place it carefully in the dishwasher, or bury it.If you add DIS to anything hot (like stuff you are cooking) beware that noxious (but nicely smelling) fumes will emanate.This stuff is very dangerous, but it is very good. It is not merely hot, but has an excellent flavor. Dave’s comes in various versions, and they are all good.Hmmm, I’m getting hungry. Time for lunch….
