Makers Story: "I’ve always loved to cook," says Joe Stewart, owner of Dat’s Nice Hot Sauce.  He explained, "The Datil peppers fascinated me because they were spicy hot with a kind of sweet tang!”  

After a few years of thinking about it, Joe began a journey… attempting to growing Datil pepper plants in pots in his backyard in St. Augustine, FL.  Once he successfully grew plenty of the little yellow lanterns, his first thoughts were to make some of his favorite foods using Datil peppers, just to see how they spiced up a meal.  It didn’t take much because his old recipes became a new hit!
