Pre-Hurricane Habanero Harvest-Recipe Needed!

Help! Before Hurricane Irene came through here, we picked as many of our habaneros as possible. Almost all of them are still green. I'm ripening some on the counter.
I'm super excited! But I know I can't use them all right now. I'd love to make some hot sauce or something. But I've never done it!
Can you guys give me some ideas or tips for making use of all these peppers?
How do I make a hot sauce?
Should I dry them first?
What about making some with the green habaneros instead of waiting for ripeness?
