What is a Pepper Sauce?

What is a Pepper Sauce?

Pepper Sauce is a Caribbean style hot sauce.  These spicy condiments are made in small batches from the freshest ingredients available.  Thicker in consistency than sauces we are accustomed to purchasing in stores, a little goes a long way.

Our sauces are made fresh each week without preservatives or additives and should remain refrigerated to preserve that special taste.  Shake well, as there are no emulsifiers in our sauces.

Special Edition Pepper Sauces are made with locally grown chilies while the varietals are producing and in season. Our latest, Purple Tiger’s Claw, features Purple Tiger and Hot Portugal peppers from Earth First Eco-Farms and Purple Cayenne Peppers from Mololo Gardens.  We thank them for their long standing commitment to bring delicious, healthy produce to market.

How would I use it?

Red, Green and Orange Pepper Sauces: add a few drops while cooking to add depth of flavor to your meal, or after cooking for full strength heat.  Mix with sour cream, yoghurt or mayonnaise to achieve the level of heat you desire in a spicy spread.

Jerk Marinade: coat your meats, game, poultry, fish, tofu or vegetables with a thin layer and cook. Reserve a portion of the marinade for use as a sauce after cooking.
Sofrito: enjoy with chips like a salsa, use as tradition states to flavor your rice, bean and vegetable dishes. Marinate delicate flavored shrimp, seafood, fish or chicken breasts before cooking. Add to soups and stews before serving to add bright, fresh flavor.

Jerk Chicken… Jerk Every and Anything

If you love this unique combination of heat and spice and can resist the temptation to eat the entire jar with chips, continue on.

1 lb of chicken, protein or tofu
1 jar Jerk Marinade

Marinate your protein of choice and 1/2 jar of marinade from 20 minutes for fish and seafood to 45 minutes for chicken, goat, etc. Grill or roast in the oven until the protein is done. You are looking for a dry crust of marinade on the outside but juicy inside. Use the remaining reserved marinade as a garnish.

Keep refrigerated.
