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)
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.
Bulgarian Carrot (very hot)
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.
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 usually offer seed packets (10 seeds each) for $1.99. These are currently sold out, but will be available again later this year.
