HEIRLOOM peppers create unique flavors in a wide variety of heat levels
A "warm" sauce with lots of smokey, green chile flavor, a pleasant tanginess, and just a touch of heat. Perfect those who don't usually like hot sauce (and also a wonderful dipping sauce for those who do). Pairs especially well with fried plantains.
We just found a couple of cases of our 2019 vintage. Still as delicious as ever! On sale until sold out.
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 those who requested a hotter Hot Winter: this sauce blends our Bulgarian Carrot with Aji Crystal, for a bold heat with a taste of rich, dark fruit and a full body. Notes of melon and citrus lend a complex flavor.
In addition, we also have a limited edition release cooked up for the Fuego subscription service. Based around our Bulgarian Carrot chiles, the Fuego edition features a pepper pickled ginger, as well as house made pineapple wine vinegar. Expect a Spicier sauce than our usual Bulgarian Carrot, with less melon and more citrus. The ginger is moderate, but rings on the finish.
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 Big Jim and Lumbre varieties, to create a sauce with an accessible heat and distinctive SW flavor.
Please note: while this sauce has been Green in the past (as pictured), our 2021 Hatch sauce is a RED. It has a more developed Hatch flavor, and just a bit more spice than previous seasons (but is still roughly Medium to Med-Hot in heat).
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 make an annual donation equal to 5% of sales from this variety, to the Seattle chapter of the International Rescue Committee.
Growler of hot sauce
Only a few left!
A growler of hot sauce! Half gallon jugs contain TWO Kilos of hot sauce. These were originally bottled for restaurant use, and contain the equivalent of 10 bottles of sauce. Price is discounted 30% BELOW the six-pack discount. Limited supply.
Since these jugs are so large, and thus have so much more air space than our bottles, it is recommended to refrigerate after opening, and/or to decant into smaller bottles for daily use.
Travel Hot Sauce Packets (10-pack)
Take your hot sauce camping! We are very excited to offer single serving packets so that you can bring Hot Winter wherever your travels take you. Sachets are sold in 10-packs that arrive packaged in a gift-able, pepper theme box. Choose from Original or Bulgarian Carrot.
JUST ADDED: we now have large boxes of our travel packets. The large box has 40 packets.
