By Erin Froehlich Serves 50
Green jalapenos instead of red, honey instead of sugar, lime juice instead of vinegar, plus flavorful cilantro - while this isn't your typical sriracha, you'll find the same wonderful, sweet, salty, earthy, heat in this Mexican take on the traditional Thai hot sauce!

Before Anything: put on your kitchen gloves. Trust the voice of flaming, burning hand experience on this one.
Hands properly shielded from capsaicin? Be nice to your food processor and prep your jalapenos and cilantro with a rough chop.
Blend your jalapenos, cilantro and garlic. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may need to do this in a few small batches. Transfer the properly blended mixture to your medium-sized container.
Thoroughly mix in honey and salt. Loosely cover with lid and store in a cool dry place like an empty drawer or cabinet.
Checking on mixture periodically, you should begin to see bubbles within 2 to 3 days and mixture will begin to grow slightly in volume. Once it's stopped growing (in about 5 days) your mixture should be ready for the final processes!
Take mixture and blend it once more in your food processor, this time adding your lime juice.
Sieve through coffee filter into stove pot. Bring mixture to a boil. Let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool and transfer to final container of your choice. Refrigerate after use.
Serving Suggestions: tacos, nacho, sandwiches, salads dressing, soup broths, anywhere you want a little extra heat - the possibilities are virtually endless!
