The Technique

Hot Sauce

There are hundreds of types of hot sauces available that add mild to high heat to foods. The most basic formulas consist of chili peppers, vinegar & salt but can range in flavor when additional seasonings are included. Tabasco is a brand that was founded in 1868 on Avery Island, Louisiana & their Original Red Sauce is considered a good bench mark with which to compare other styles. The peppers used to make the condiment were originally grown only on the island, however today, they are cultivated in Mexico & other locations to ensure year round production. Tabasco is aged in white oak barrels that have been previously used for whiskey production. A mash is made & then stored in them that stands for 3 years. The seeds & skins are then strained & combined with vinegar & salt. Tabasco Original Red Hot Sauce registers on the Scoville scale between 2,500 & 5,000.
