HEIRLOOM peppers create unique flavors in a wide variety of heat levels
A sweet-hot blend of Hungarian Hot Wax, Hinkelhatz and our own Hot Winter Pepper. Perfectly balanced, this sauce is reminiscent of Sriachia, but with much higher quality ingredients and greater complexity.
Santa Fe Grande (hot)
Our hotter blend starts with a base of Santa Fe Grande, then adds Bulgarian Carrot and a little bit of Golden Cayenne for a heat that is substantial, but still full of flavor.
Orleans (Golden Hot)
Just a little bit hotter than the Santa Fe Grande, this golden hot sauce is an homage to the small town where I worked on Mt. Home Farm: Orleans, CA (which means, "The Golden One"). This sauce is extra thick, and tastes like black pepper awash in sunshine; it is the perfect compliment to a fish taco.

Our very own Hot Winter Pepper: the off-type Jimmy Nardello that inspired Hot Winter Hot Sauce. This sauce is less sweet and more earthy, with a slowly building heat that is robust, but not over powering.
PRE-ORDER: Bulgarian Carrot (very hot)
NOW ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS. The season's first bottling of Bulgarian Carrot is scheduled for next weekend. Pre-orders will ship beginning Oct 27th, with all pre-orders in the mail by Oct 30.

For all those who have asked for a hotter Hot Winter: this sauce blends our Bulgarian Carrot with LOTS of Hinkelhatz, for a bold heat with rich, dark fruit flavor with a full body. This year we also added some Aji Crystal, which turned up the sour cherry and citrus notes (and possibly increased the heat just a little bit).
Hatch Chile (Medium)
In a partnership with Los Roast, we are pleased to share this fermented Hatch chile sauce. These are certified New Mexico chiles prepared in the Hot Winter style. We use a combination of the Arizona 1904 and Lumbre varieties, to create a sauce with an accessible heat and distinctive SW flavor.
Pre-Order: Aleppo (hot)
NOW ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS. We will begin bottling our Aleppo sauce at the end of this month . Pre-orders will ship beginning the first week in November, with all pre-orders in the mail no later than Nov 13. Please note that any order that includes a pre-order item will ship in full, once the pre-ordered item is ready. Currently, this particular variety is yielding less fruit than expected, and quantities this year may be limited. Sign up for our newsletter to receive production updates.
The Aleppo has a robust, long lasting heat, as well as a unique umami flavor. It has been favored by chefs for centuries, and is named after the city that used to be the most populous in Syria.
-- In honor of the people who have cultivated this chile for generations, I will be donating 5% of sales from this variety to the Seattle chapter of the International Rescue Committee.
I would love for more people to grow this pepper themselves, and so offer seed packets (10 seeds each) for $2.99. Please Note: the newly harvested seeds likely contain some genetic drift. In my harvesting this year, I noticed several off-types in my Aleppo field. I am able to manage these off types during harvest, but want to be clear that some of them may effect the seed going forward. I will be planting a much larger field of Aleppo next year, so that I can better return to the breed standard. I am thus offering a limited amount of 2020 seeds, and a promise to refine my offering in 2021.
The Aleppo began as a Limited Edition, but has since joined our regular rotation of peppers.Sign up for our newsletter to find out about upcoming Limited Editions!
