Anyone can make a hot sauce that burns off your taste buds. But, at Hellgate Farm, we’re not out to scald your tongue past all recognition. So our classic hot sauce balances medium heat with the actual, you know, flavor of peppers. Totally local, totally fresh, No taste bud sacrifice required.
Sweet and crisp, the husk cherry is the best thing to happen to hot sauce since the hot pepper. Frankly, we love husk cherries so much that we were tempted to keep this singular hot sauce a little too in-house, if you know what we mean. But truth be told, this sweet sauce was meant to be shared, so raise a chip to the husk cherry and dig in!
Some meals you want to be challenged. You want something super hot, something that mellows into a burning reward for your tongue. The heart of this sauce is a vicious little Wild Brazil pepper that adds killer kick and depth to any meal. But don’t be a hero; you’re going to need that tongue again someday. Surely, after all that, further warnings are superfluous.
Welcome back to the old days when ketchup was made with real ingredients. We use a variety of heirloom tomatoes, no preservatives, and a secret mix of spices that would make our grandparents proud. Both regular and a spicy version will be available in Fall 2017!
