What to do with a lot of naga jolokia chili peppers

Our CSA gave us 2 1/2 pounds
of extremely hot peppers, mostly naga jolokia. I'd like to make a hot sauce that I can give away at Christmastime. What do I need to know to make a sauce that will keep unrefrigerated? I'm open to other applications as well.

With this amount of heat, I'd expect that whatever I make will be used very slowly, like a drop or two at a time. So it's important that it will keep. I'd also like to be able to ship it. I don't have a grill, drier, or equipment for fermenting or canning. We keep our regular store-bought hot sauce on the shelf after we open it, but recipes for homemade hot sauce usually say to keep it in the fridge.
