How Spicy Are Your Products?

We haven’t had our products officially tested for their Scoville Rating (SHU) … yet.

Our sauces (Pine in My ArseThat’ll Peach YaMango Unchained) are all relatively the same; we say roughly 6/10 for heat.

Cranky Cranberry (habanero cranberry sauce) is about 4/10.

Candied Menace (candied jalapenos) is our mildest product (and most popular); we rate them about 2/10.

What Peppers Do You Use For The Heat?

Our Candied Menace uses the versatile and popular jalapeno pepper (2,500 to 8,000 SHU). The jalapenos give a spicy zest to the brine that we cook them in.

Our sauces use (our favourite) habanero pepper (100,000 – 350,000 SHU) They are fruity and colourful with the kick that gives the sauces their beautiful heat!

Why Do You Use Fruits As A Base?

Fruit sauces trace their roots back to the Caribbean origins of hot sauce, where there was plentiful tropical fruit like pineapple. Peaches and mangoes also have a great Caribbean vibe.

The acidity and sweetness of the fruit can be a great pairing to tropical habaneros or scotch bonnets.

I like fruity sauces for grilling with, so the grill’s high heat can caramelize the fruit sugars and give a great texture, too.

Things To Do With Need The Heat Sauces We Probably Haven’t Thought Of?

Dale's Tequila Caesar

Definitely spicy cocktails—a bit obvious by now.

I like to use the brine from Candied Menace as a salad dressing.

And Cranky Cranny with your charcuterie board brings an unexpected but welcome zing.
