It’s hard to throw out old sauces
We cleaned out the fridge to make room for any new sauces that we’d be opening soon, and found bottles of stuff that was over 6 years old. There was even a bottle of smoked, dried tomatoes in olive oil that was at least 7 years old.
It’s sad to part with some of the one-of-a-kind hot sauces, but I’m sure with the internet, I could easily find
These photos don’t show the 2 dozen or so bottles of other sauces and condiments that we threw out. There were Thai and other oriental sauces and seasonings – taco sauces, steak sauces, BBQ sauces, bottled peppers and pickles – they all had to be recycled to make room for the new guys!
- Sontava, a Jardines product. Made in Belize Central America – Typical grocery store fare from the overpriced Jardines line
- Crabanero – The Original Old Bay Seasoned Habanero Sauce – from the Philly Chili Co. produced in Reading, PA. Marilyn loves this stuff, and it was our 2nd bottle, which we probably purchased at Peppers.com but they have since added CraBBQ sauce and Crabanero Bay seasoning to their line up. Might be a future review in line for them.
- Killer Bee from VirginiaBrand.com – apparently they’ve stopped making this sauce. Too bad, it was a nice, sweet hot sauce.
- Tena Hot Sauce – Trader Joe’s product made in Ecuador from Tena Pepper Paste.
- Blair’s After Death Sauce – ’nuff said.
- The Greatest Grub Ever Fire It Up Serving Sauce – we got a mixed case of TGGE products at the Food Network’s Food Show in Pa a few years back. Great tasting stuff, but I forgot it was even there.
- PyroMania Hot Sauce – One of my favorite sauces – chunky, sweet, hot, vinegar – from Garden Row Foods in St Charles, IL it’s available from HotShotsHotSauce.com here.
- Mad Dog 357 – back when 357,000 Scoville Units was a big deal. I love Mad Dog Inferno, but I guess this didn’t pass the muster.
- Santa’s Atkin’s Friendly – nevermind, even the website is a link farm now.
- Parada – a Brazillian sauce. Eh.
- Dinosaur Bar B Que slathering sauce – it was just O.K. apparently
- Nera’s Jamaican Jerk Spice – A *huge* favorite here at HotSauceDaily – gotta get me some more of this lil’ wonder! We reviewed Neera’s in our Jerk Seasoning Roundup
- Danger Men Cooking Chipotle Grill Sauce – overpriced and overrated
- TuttoCalabria Crushed red peppers – another great product that we just didn’t use often enough – bought this bottle at Chelsea Market, the home of Food Network – memories…
When we were done, I said to Marilyn “We didn’t get a BEFORE shot!” She said, “just wait a month and take a pic… it’ll look just like the BEFORE shot we would’ve had today!”
