Bee Sting Honey ‘n’ Habanero Pepper Sauce Review

Two of my favorite combinations are sweet and heat.Honey is one of the finest ingredients you can combine with peppers to give you this exquisite combination. Short of walking into a hive full of bees, Bee Sting Honey ‘n’ Habanero Hot Sauce is one of the best ways to get the taste of honey with the bite of a habanero pepper. My first impulse when I twist the cap off this stuff is to pour it on a spoon and take it straight. In fact, this sauce is excellent (not kidding here) for someone who has a cold. Forget the cough syrup. Bee Sting Honey ‘n’ Habanero soothes the throat and helps open the sinus cavities and it tastes a lot better than cough syrup. I wouldn’t lie to you. This isn’t something I could make up. There’s another way I use this sauce. I started by accident. It makes a great pancake syrup. The honey provides the sweetness you expect from a pancake syrup and the habaneros give your cakes a nice little kick. Continue Reading

Making Brazilian Hot Sauce with the Malagueta Pepper

There has been a growing interest in hot sauces from other countries and the Brazilian Hot Sauce is one of them.  Before we get into the actual hot sauce recipe and info, let take a moment to learn about the specific chili pepper that is used most of the time in those regions.

The Malagueta pepper is a chili pepper used in Brazil, Portugal and Mozambique. It is heavily used in Brazil and it apparently gets its name from the unrelated Melegueta pepper from West Africa, which is actually a spice, not a chili pepper.  The Malagueta pepper is a small, … Continue Reading

Baron Blazing Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Baron Blazing Hot Pepper Sauce is a useful piquant sauce. The pungent aroma helps enhance the sharp tang and the slight burn of the scotch bonnet peppers used to craft this sauce. Besides the scotch bonnets, this sauce contains nothing but vinegar, some salt, and a few spices. Many of these piquant sauces are made using cayenne or similar peppers, so I was happy to taste the scotch bonnets here.

In my book, the use of the scotch bonnets is what sets this sauce apart from other similar sauces. They give it a little better kick than most of the piquant classified sauces I’ve tasted, and I absolutely love the flavor of the scotch bonnet, so I find myself using this sauce frequently when I eat anything of the Mexican persuasion. The rich red color of this sauce is appealing and the flavor is smooth, providing a perfect complement to these foods. Continue Reading

Bethany Blues Papaya Grillin’ Sauce Review

I know a girl named Bethany and she rarely has the blues, so I knew this sauce wasn’t hers. Actually, it comes from Bethany Beach in Delaware. As far as beaches go, you don’t hear about Bethany Beach all that much, but you should hear about this grilling sauce because it’s quite nice. Flexible, too, since while it’s called a grilling sauce, on the side of the label it’s referred to as a “dipping sauce and marinade for grilled or smoked pork, beef, seafood, chicken or wild game.”

That sounds nearer to the target because Bethany Blues Papaya Grillin’ Sauce has very little in the way of viscosity going for it. In other words, it won’t coat a piece of meat on a grill the way a traditional barbecue sauce would. Continue Reading

Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Chicken Wing Marinade Review

I want you to know that I am writing this immediately – I mean, immediately – after sampling the product. In fact, my nose is still running from the peppery heat. I love hot wings and I make them often, but Uncle Dougie’s Chicago Style Wing Sauce proves that you can teach on old dougie – er, doggie – new tricks.

Dougie prints a recipe for the wings right on the label, and though it differed from I usually make wings, I decided to do it his way. Well, right now, his way is the only way as far as I’m concerned. These were some very tasty wings and while they weren’t deadly hot, they had a nice even spiciness that made my nose run, my brow sweat, and my mouth asking for more.

Hot Sauce Dangers

Some people have questioned whether hot sauce or the hot peppers can be a danger to you. Peppers as a whole are not dangerous to you. They have plenty of vitamins and health benefits.  What can get to you is the Capsaicin. Capsaicin is potent oil, but there is no medical evidence that it is unhealthy for your body by consuming it in a sauce or in your food.

The effect you can get from this oil that is harmful to you is the burning from the oil found in very hot peppers like Habaneros, Ghost Peppers … Continue Reading

Blair’s Death Rain Cajun Seasoning Review

I could make this review very short by simply stating that Blair’s Death Rain Cajun Seasoning is the best chile pepper-based seasoning I’ve ever tasted. But I’ll reveal more. It’s worth it.

First of all, if it says Blair on the label, you know two things: it’s going to be good and it’s going to be hot. And Death Rain is definitely good and hot – and this is the medium version, too, though the label still says “Warning!” This delightful, burnt-sienna-colored spice blend is composed of cayenne pepper, garlic, onion, paprika, salt, celery seed, rosemary, oregano, turmeric, and sage. Clearly, this mix is a foodie’s dream, delivering not just good heat but also a blend of delightful flavors that you’d probably want on your food anyway. Continue Reading
