Geddes Farms Blazing Hot 100% Natural Ghost Pepper Honey

Geddes Farms of Maryland sent us a bottle of their raw honey infused with a Ghost pepper to sample. With its clear golden color, the flavor of this quality honey is enhanced by the addition of a split red Ghost pepper suspended in the honey. It brings a very pronounced heat to the sweet honey profile.

Some folks advocate honey as a way to reduce the burn of hot sauces and hot peppers, so I first thought it was just going to be one of those products that incorporated the Ghost pepper just to jump on the hot pepper bandwagon, but – oh my! Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey did not disappoint.

There is not nearly enough honey to cover-up the heat here, and that makes for a perfect combination of heat and sweet that any die-hard chilehead can appreciate.

I’ve put Geddes Farms Blazing Hot Ghost Pepper Honey on just about everything I could think of – chicken tenders, wings, biscuits, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and even on ice cream. I’ve yet to put it in my hot tea, but I will be using it to warm my soul when the winter wind and snow come knocking on our door.

Spicy Hoisin Sriracha BBQ Sauce recipe

Hoisin and Sriracha make a great BBQ Sauce and glaze.

This recipe from JeanMarie Brownson came to us via the Food section of our local paper. She was trying to clean out her fridge by “pouring several condiments” into a bottle. Hoisin sauce, ketchup, and the “oh-so-trendy” sriracha sauce became the basis for this delicious bbq sauce/glaze.

We cooked up this BBQ sauce to glaze on our pork tenderloin, as per her instructions.

It paired perfectly with stir-fried veggies and oriental noodles, which also incorporated some of the bbq sauce.

pin this hoisin sriracha bbq sauce recipe

This simple recipe calls for 2 parts hoisin sauce, 1 part sriracha and 1 part ketchup. It made a perfect glaze for our pork tenderloin.

With some tweaking, this could be a great glaze for chicken wings. We would kick up the sriracha, and back off just a bit on the hoisin and ketchup. Some unsalted butter would add some fat and flavor too. But that’s another post. Enjoy!


A & B American Style Pepper Sauce

I came across A&B American Style Pepper Sauce at the First Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo last year (which was an amazing event, thank you Steve Seabury!). Knowing that A&B is going to be in attendance again at this year’s event, I figured it was time to share this find with you, our readers.


A&B American Style Pepper Sauce

Our mission: Our Pepper Sauce is a great, all-natural replacement for your existing hot sauce, cocktail sauce or even ketchup. Though we think it’s amazing on everything you eat, it’s especially mind-blowing on oysters, shrimp, eggs and burgers.

A&B American Style Pepper Sauce bottles

I didn’t have any oysters or shrimp on hand, but after tasting this sauce, I can see why it shines on those foods. I did try A&B on some quesadillas and pizza.

Ingredients: White Vinegar, Red Fresno Chili Pepper, Carrot, Red Onion, Habanero Pepper, Salt

A&B Pepper Sauce texture

Texture and Appearance: This is a thick, deep-orange sauce, with the consistency of Sriracha. It doesn’t run or separate at all, and clings to the spoon very well. Perfect.

Taste straight up: A hint of sweetness comes first (from the carrots and peppers – no sugar here!), with just a trace of vinegar. The onion and pepper flavors are extremely well-balanced, making this a very enjoyable sauce. Stellar taste.

Heat level: Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – Mild. Only 1.5 stars, but the blend of peppers results in a heat that warms the entire mouth. Very satisfying.

A&B Pepper sauce on quesadillas

Taste on food: We tried this on chicken quesadillas, and loved it! I first just dipped the quesadilla into the sauce, but when slathered on top, it set up very nicely. It actually turned into a paste on top of the warm flour tortilla. A great sauce for dipping AND slathering! Excellent!

Label and Graphics: I love the old medicine-style 8 oz bottle, and the label follows that theme with old-timey fonts on a brown paper label. Classic.

Overall Rating: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – I give this 4 out of 5 stars for excellent overall flavor, perfect on any food you can imagine. It’s a little more expensive than other craft sauces we’ve had, but it is a great product made with great ingredients. Highly recommended.

A&B’s tag line is “Flavor. Not just heat”, and they prove that with this sauce.

Pineapple Orange Hot Sauce by Gunthers Gourmet

Our first hot sauce review of the year is also a first for the company that makes it. Gunther’s Gourmet has long been known for their incredible salsas, vinaigrettes and gourmet marinades. Pineapple Orange Hot Sauce with Mango is their first hot sauce release. And we think they nailed this one – right out of the gate.

Gunther’s Gourmet Pineapple Orange Hot Sauce with Mango

We are big fans of pineapple based sauces; hot sauces, salsas, BBQ sauces and glazes. So when Gunther’s finally came out with their first ever hot sauce, we were pretty excited that it was a pineapple sauce.

Ingredients: crushed pineapple, orange juice, mango puree, distilled vinegar, apple sauce, lemon juice, tamari (water, organic whole soybeans, salt), pure honey, habanero peppers, roasted garlic, spices and salt. Contains: Soy.

Texture & Appearance: The crushed pineapple provides a nice pulpy texture to this sauce, with plenty of chewy bits. The mango puree helps fortify the texture while helping the orange juice give this sauce a great color. The texture makes this a bit of a challenge to coax out of the bottle, but I would not want to change the texture. Maybe a wider mouth bottle?

Taste Straight Up: The initial taste is of sweet pineapple, blended perfectly with light citrus and garlic tones. Then comes a gradual buildup of heat from the habanero peppers that warms the entire mouth without overwhelming the flavors of the other ingredients.

Heat Level: Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars – Right in the middle of the scale – the classic habanero heat is strong, but short-lived. It is not overpowering, and the sweet pineapple comes through as the main flavor. A great balancing act!

Label/Graphics: Staying with Gunther’s classic label style, the pic showing the fruits is perfect for any gourmet store shelf or roadside stand.

Final Thoughts:

gunthers gourmet pineapple orange hot sauce on pizza

On pizza this sauce rocks. Imagine it on a Hawaiian style pizza…

Final rating: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Five stars – our highest rating. A perfect complement to pizza, omelettes, poured on cream cheese, as a dip or glaze for meatballs or pork chops, and much more. A perfect first hot sauce from an outstanding salsa maker.
