Happy Harvest Season! There is so much excitement and growth with hot sauce and chili peppers this time of year. Have you been trying anything new or exciting of late? I’m always interested in hearing about cool peppers or favorite recipes that crop up! Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks of what I've been making and picking!
I got started down my journey of hot sauce during in the harvest season of 2014. I grew habaneros and ghost peppers that were too hot to eat, so I tried making my own hot sauce.
It ended up being really good, but nothing close to what I expected! I'd really encourage you to try making your own hot sauce for fun. I wrote an article about some tips and suggestions for coming up with a recipe, that has lots of room for creativity and using what's available around you. Try it out here!
Many of our newsletter subscribers know that cooking my batch of hot sauce then prompted me to start a blog and podcast on CraftHotSauce.com, and then a few years later in 2017, my own hot sauce company, Craic Sauce. A Boston area journalist interviewed me and covered our spicy journey last week. You can read "Let's get craic-in with Craic Sauce" here!
