       Title: Tom’s Death By Basil Mayonnaise
  Categories: Peppers, Sauces
       Yield: 2 cups
 
       2 lg Habanero peppers
       6 lg Cloves of garlic
     1/2 c  Fresh basil
   1 3/4 c  Mayonnaise
 
 Collect the basil and wash and remove the leaves.  Allow to dry.
 Measure the basil.  1/2 cup is a 1/2 cup measurer packed with as 
 much basil as you can get into it. 
 
 Remove the stems and seeds from the habanero.  Be careful...
 
 Mince the basil, habaneros and garlic in a food processor until 
 finely minced.
 
 Mix with the mayonnaise (I prefer low-fat Hellmans).  Refrigerate
 at least 2 days for the flavors to marry.  I keep it in a 1 pint
 canning jar.
 
 The basil flavor is dominant with just enough heat from the peppers
 to let you know they are there.  This goes great on many types of 
 sandwiches.
 
 The recipe was prompted by a comment from someone that basil can be
 used instead of lettuce on sandwiches.  This is an easy way to
 accomplish this and get a little heat at the same time.  It is
 delicious.
