Melinda’s Red Savina Pepper Sauce

Melinda’s Hot Sauces specializes in habanero pepper hot sauces. The Red Savina variety used to make Melinda’s Red Savina Pepper Sauce is about twice as hot as a regular habanero pepper. Apparently it used to be the hottest chili until the ghost pepper over took it. There’s a lovely sweetness to this hot sauce, probably due to the fresh carrots, onions and limes used. This is followed by a good dry heat.

Melinda’s Red Savina Pepper Sauce was laboratory tested at 577,000 Scoville Heat Units.  This sauce is one of the hottest and should really be used a drop at a time, especially if you value your taste buds! This is a truly fantastic hot sauce blend, and in a delightful bottle to top it off!

    This sauce is nowhere close to 577,000 scovilles. 577,000 is the shu of the hottest measured Red Savina pepper ever, and most them are nowhere close to that.

    The sauce itself is probably like 20k to 30k. And this sauce tastes fantastic!!!!! The taste of the Red Savinas and red habaneros really comes through strong, and I love the taste of habaneros! I strongly recommend this one.

      Thanks for putting this out there. I have 357 Mad Dog (actually 357,000 scoville). Mad dog is definitely more than three times as hot as Melinda’s red Savina.
