Sharing stories of Sriracha - February 2016

February 01, 2016

Hey Chiliheads,

Happy February! We had a really exciting start to 2016, and it began with bringing on Craft Hot Sauce's first partners: Salamander Sauce and Crazy Bastard Sauce! More announcements on the partnership to come later.

You could almost say January was the month of Sriracha, as we had two Craft Hot Sauce maker stories on purely Sriracha-based companies. Both are progressive leaders in the small-batch Sriracha area, and it's great to see they are both organic and Non-GMO. We have links to the maker stories below, but Jojo's Sriracha is from the popular hot sauce and foodie state of Colorado, and Garden Kitchen Sriracha is from Western Massachusetts. We also had Red Hawk Premium Pepper from Pennsylvania featured. 

In honor of National Hot Sauce Day on January 22nd we wrote this article, A Short History of Hot Sauce. Also just a reminder to check out our Hot Sauce Festival Calendar because some of these dates can sneak up on people!

Be sure you are following us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram because we will be asking our followers what questions you'd like us to ask in our next podcast with one of our Craft Hot Sauce Profiles! 

See you out there!

What the podcast and community means to us - January 2022

January 01, 2022

I wanted your first note of the year to come from the hot sauce part of your life. Happy New Year! I hope you’re in good health and I’m counting on 2022 being a great year ahead.

I’m here to share a recent conversation I had, which is now on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast. Sometimes when I write this newsletter or market a hot sauce, it’s not my most natural channel of communication. The podcast has grown to be my favorite way of connecting with the wider craft hot sauce community and sharing those experiences with you.

I brought the energy to a super fun interview where I got to share my hot sauce journey. If you need to slow down for a bit and/or looking for some hot sauce inspiration, view it on YouTube here!

Gathering and sharing among the craft hot sauce community - November 2021

November 01, 2021

Hope you’re enjoying your week as we ease into the winter months. In the past couple of newsletters I’ve described the hustle and bustle of the chili pepper harvest season. I feel like the mania that built up during summer peaked a couple weeks ago at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo.

The event was everything we hoped for with lots of engagement with hot sauce enthusiasts and makers. We gave out more samples of Craic Sauce over a two day period than ever before, receiving lots of positive feedback, especially with our Brian Boru’s Curry sauce.
