    Awesome recipe, I did change it a little.

    Did everything but used a large hatch pepper flame roasted instead of the smoked serrano, then doubled the garlic and salt, omitted the brown sugar.

    The heat is a nice build when eating with chips.It doesnt taste of strawberry much, which is fine with me.

    The unaltered recipe gives a neutral flavor when added to food, the overtones are reaper natural flavor (awesome fruity taste) and building heat that is gone within 10 minutes.

    My next use of this will include more garlic and salt, plus a touch of cilantro.

    I like this recipe as a base to expand on, for my personal tastes.

    I have my own pepper patch, Jolokia, Butch T, Yellow Moruga, and Reapers…2500 plants
