How Spicy Are Your Products?
We haven’t had our products officially tested for their Scoville Rating (SHU) … yet.
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.
Where Can I Buy Your Spicy Products?
You can find all of our products (and gift cards) using our online shop. We also have a store at The 400 Market in Innisfil and are there year-round on weekends.
We are also available at a number of retailers in York Region and Simcoe County:
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?
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.
