Hello Fellow Chili Heads!
It’s the best time of year. Fall is approaching very quickly. The leaves here are beginning to change color and fall. The huge squash plants in my vegetable garden are beginning to yellow and wilt only to reveal what has been hiding behind them—my pepper plants! Long and skinny, short and wrinkled, these inferno wielding, fire producing plants are listing to one side or the other from the weight of their fruit production. My pepper plants might not compare to ones grown indoors or down south but they are still a pleasing sight to behold. Thank you Mother Nature!
Today is Labor Day and I find myself not laboring (fortunately) but simply looking forward to a package that I am about to receive in the mail soon from Heart Breaking Dawns Sauce Company. They have produced a new collectable (their second) that is signed and numbered. Check it out! The beauty of this product is that it is made with the all-new Trinidad Scorpion Pepper (The hottest in the world!) and 16 million Capsaicin crystals, which is the hottest pepper extract one can buy. Let me put it in simple terms. It’s hotter then police issued mace, if you can believe that. There is also a real Black Scorpion floating in the sauce. A video review for that is coming soon.
Last weekend I discovered some new products from The Scoville Institute. They have produced a new Holiday line of Sauces. Little reindeer with cute furry brown noses, elves with bells twinkling and the tips of their shoes, and cheeks frost bitten and ruddy from the cold bite of the cheery holiday season.
No, No, Ho, Ho
Any where on these bottles of sauce!
These sauces are dark. They are just a bit sinister and evil. Packed with just enough heat to scare most people.
One is even made with the fruity, very flavorful, smoking hot Jolokia Pepper. The labels are great! I would give them a five out of five for creativity and detail. The titles are as follows: Pumpkin Puke (Habanero), Ghoulish Garlic Cayenne, Devil’s Blood (Habanero), Evil Elixir (Jalapeno) and my Favorite label is The Ghost Pepper “Super Scary Hot” Sauce (Jolokia Peppers) Each one has a different recipe with different ingredients. All these sauces look great and I must admit that I can’t try them all at once, but I will tell you about the one my wife is really interested in and that’s Dr. Hamguber’s Jalapeno Evil Elixir.
The sauce has a nice green color and is very thin in consistency. It reminds me of the Salsa Verde that is my wife’s favorite. When I unwrapped the safety seal/lid I found that it did have a stopper to slow the flow…to my relief. It has a nice bright, sweet Jalapeño scent. The vinegar is not over powering and the peppers come right through. There are no seeds in the sauce and definitely one you could apply liberally. To me the sauce is a mild sauce. I sensed a little heat but mostly what came through was the flavor. I am use to Habanero and Ghost Pepper sauces, which pack a lot more heat so it might be different for you. The flavor is good! I was surprised. I bought these because of the labels and I knew they would make great gifts. Each bottle comes with a skeleton on a noose that is to be tied on each bottle. My six-year-old son had to have one. It is the perfect gift to pack a little fear/fun in your family’s spooky holiday. Now I know, Halloween is a while a way, but I must admit that I was excited to share these little treasures with friends and family. I have already given two away and may have to buy more!
So for those that are looking for a more creative bottle. Ask John over at The Scoville Institute for his non “pg” rated bottle. He has fashioned a bottle with two pretty ladies asking that festive Halloween question, “Trick or treat!” My wife didn’t find this one as pleasing as the others but for you bachelors out there…it’s the perfect gift. John was even nice enough to sign a couple bottles for me. He told me that he and his team just loves peppers and just want to get the word out about them. I found them to be very friendly and willing to communicate.
So if you love all things spicy and can appreciate the holidays for the fun they can bring, pick up some of these like I did. We shall see if you are better at holding on to them till Halloween then I was. They are fun. The sauce that we opened was good but the real joy with them for me was sharing the Holiday designs. Have a great fall season. Keep it hot and keep it spicy. Most of all…ENJOY.
