Spice Sage repeatedly gave me the run around regarding my $200 order of various spices. First they couldn't ship cuz of inventory process going on. Then it was some problem in the warehouse. The it was some other vendors problem. Finally, they promised they would ship my stuff overnight due to the problems and when it finally shipped, it was shipped ground. Don't trust this company with your order - if you need it in a timely fashion. If you can wait a month to receive your order then you are good
You can determine the amount of heat in your recipes but how much of the habanero powder you add. Often it's hard to do so with the actual pepper; do you remove all the seeds,half? This powder makes it easier to refine your spice levels for your recipes.
Even though this is a blend it is a great hot powder for cooking or mixing your own seasonings. While not as hot as say Reaper or Scorpion powder it is a extremely hot substitute at a more realistic price. You still get the rich habanero flavor and a heat that the majority of people would call HOT so start with small amounts and go from there.
This powder is so full of flavor and absolutely delicious hot peppers. I cook with it, I put it on leftovers and even tried it on popcorn. So good. Will definitely order this again. It smells and tastes fresh, I couldn't ask for more.
Contrary to what I had expected this powder was milder than my locally purchased hit red chili powder! The Habanero powder I purchased at the LA Farmers Market is truly hot and really what habanero powder should taste like.
