I didn’t get into hot sauce until just a few years ago. While growing up and watching my father put hot sauce on, well, quite possibly everything, I just didn’t understand it. Why would you want to set your mouth on fire? Why ruin those gorgeous fluffy yellow scrambled eggs? WHYYYY??
Because it’s friggin’ delicious, that’s why.
Allow me to introduce you to Hella Hot Hot Sauce. Founded in 2012, they’ve been perfecting the art of hot sauce ever since.
They sent me their Apricot Ghost recipe, and I’ve had it on everything from eggs to Santa Fe Chicken. It has a geat amount of heat, hence their (soon-to-be) trademark, and apricots go especially well with chicken. Also eggs come from chickens, so there’s that. I really enjoyed this flavor, and look forward to trying more of them.
Kyle Colson, Hella Hot Hot Sauce’s owner and mad scientist, gave me the inside scoop on the product. He and his wife, Natalie, forage 80% of all of the fruit used in their recipes, and the rest from local stores and markets. They have been growing their own chilies and are currently in the process of gaining more land for harvest.
All natural. All real. Nope, nothing artificial here!
If you live in the San Jose area, I highly suggest that you attend their next tasting party, on April 6 at 1395 Martin Ave from 2-6 pm. They will be presenting new recipes and their artist created label!
