Sweet Heat Pack
An ode to fruit and pepper pairings! This set features three fruit-forward sauces with sweet and spicy recipes that bring serious warm-weather vibes. At the Brooklyn shop, we like recommending these sauces as marinades or glazes because the natural sugars will caramelize when cooked, leaving sticky-sweet goodness. These bottles cap out at medium heat, so you can use liberally for your next grill sesh.
Small Axe Peppers - California Raisin:
California produce is front and center with this sauce, pairing mild jalapeno and serrano peppers grown in community gardens across Oakland with another iconic California export: raisins. The deep, sun-dried sweetness of the raisins is balanced with carrots and garlic, as well as a dash of smoked paprika. Use as a marinade for pork or chicken, or try your hand at homemade picadillo!
Ingredients: Apple cider vinegar, jalapeño peppers, serrano peppers, raisins, garlic, carrots, salt, brown sugar, smoked paprika
Size: 5 oz
Dirty Dick's - Hot Pepper Sauce:
A surprising blend of tropical fruit, including mangoes, pineapple and banana (yes, banana) give this habanero sauce sweetness with bold notes of honey and rum rounding out the flavors. Habaneros - often considered sweet tasting themselves - meld perfectly into the mix, providing a kick of heat. Great for glazing a rack of ribs or as a sweet stand-in for ketchup when spread on a burger.
Ingredients: Habanero peppers, mangoes, pineapple, vinegar, bananas, brown sugar, raisins, onions, garlic, salt, spices
Size: 5 oz
Heartbeat Hot Sauce - Pineapple Habanero:
Sweet and sour pineapple is front and center in this habanero sauce. The fruity flavor is soon followed by peppery notes from yellow bell peppers as well as a slight hoppy finish from Sleeping Giant Brewing Company’s session IPA. Try it with tacos al pastor, Hawaiian pineapple chicken, or in a spicy summer cocktail.
Ingredients: Pineapple, yellow peppers, onion, distilled vinegar, habaneros, sugar, lime juice, kosher salt, garlic, canola oil, ale (water, hops, malted barley, yeast)
Size: 5 oz
