Get ready to clear out those sinuses! This hot sauce is not messing around. As soon as one drop hits the tip of your tongue, you get a blast of tingly, fiery habanero pepper. That initial heat transforms into a more subtle burn as it gives way to fresh ginger root. (Think along the lines of the high-grade pickled ginger served with sushi.) And what’s that slight sticky-sweet finish? Tamarind. If you’re thrown by this three-pronged flavor combination, it’s because it is distinctly foreign to America—the makers of the unique and addicting hot sauce took inspiration from traditional Caribbean sauces.
But that’s not even the hottest part about Small Axe Peppers. They source all of their produce from community-owned, low-production farms from all across America, 8 cities and 48 gardens to be exact. Talk about an on-fire idea.
Tip of the Tongue:
Small Axe suggests using it to slather chicken breasts and pork loin, but we could imagine it on pretty much near anything. Our morning scramble, our Sunday Bloodies, a fish curry... honestly, nothing is safe from this heat.
