We're excited to partner with J. Kenji López-Alt, award winning author, food writer, and chef, to create a gift set with some of his favorite hot sauces. 10% of the proceeds will benefit Colombia Diversa, doing important work for LGBTQ rights in Colombia.
This set contains:
Hot Winter Original
The star of this sauce is an heirloom pepper variety developed by Shaun Winter after he found an unusually hot pepper in a field of mild Jimmy Nardellos. The peppers are blended coarsely with a simple backdrop of cider and rice vinegars and hardneck garlic.
Chiporro Rocoto Hot
A sauce created by Peruvian Chef Carlos Ruiz, featuring the Rocoto pepper, an apple shaped pepper with black seeds and a moderately hot kick. It's balanced with a creamy base of tomato, onions, and herbs.
An earthy, sauce with upfront sweetness from peaches, along with molasses and Chipotle peppers (Smoked Jalapeño) for a relatively mild kick. Consistently one of our most popular sauces.
Queen Majesty Scotch Bonnet & Ginger
A classic blend of Caribbean flavors, with the heat of yellow Scotch Bonnets, warming ginger, and tangy citrus. A great addition to jerk chicken or scrambled eggs.
Lucky Dog Brown Label
A multiple award winning sauce featuring a nicely balanced blend of Chipotles, mustard and cumin, along with some Scotch Bonnets for an extra kick. The subtle sweetness of Bartlett pear and figs rounds it out.
Secret Aardvark Habanero
This iconic Portland-made sauce has a cult following, and as Kenji put it, is "weirdly delicious." Tomato, carrots, mustard, Habanero peppers, and white wine vinegar meld together to make for a very versatile sauce.
You can see more of Kenji's recommendations here, and if you add additional sauces you still qualify for free US shipping.
