100% of the produce is from Clark Farm in Carlisle, Mass.
Story behind the sauce: Clark Farm, a real organic farm in Carlisle, is one of 18 Massachusetts farms we sourced from in 2022. A week before the first fall frost they had 400 pounds of peppers on the vines. They didn't have any buyers for the peppers and they were going to have to compost them.
We worked out a partnership to take on their produce (a mix of four types of peppers, golden beets, carrots, red onions) and made a hot sauce that we gave to their 400+ CSA members. We have a little extra to sell and are excited to share this one of a kind sauce with you!
We highlighted the Clark Farm Harvest hot sauce this past weekend at the Boston Hot Sauce Festival and it was the best seller both days! It has an earthy, bitter, balsamic flavor to it. I have really enjoyed the sauce in salads, sandwiches and adding it to savory foods. It almost reminds me of Italian hots.
It was a fun project for us and the end result limited waste of local produce and created a sauce unlike any one we've made or had before!
