Ghost Pepper in a rub. There is a new Holy Jolokia product and its proceeds support research conducted by the Chile Pepper Institute of New Mexico State University. The Chile Pepper Institute has teamed up with CaJohn’s Fiery Foods to create another classic in the Holy Jolokia line of products.
Holy Jolokia Wing Sauce was created by the Chile Pepper Institute of New Mexico University and CaJohn’s Fiery Foods. Its main ingredient is ghost pepper and its flavor really lives up to that name. This is not the watered down concoction that Popeye’s wings are coated in. This is the real deal, true to the flavor of the ghost pepper.
Flashbang hot sauce gets my first negative review to date. It starts off something like this: Oh dear God why? I do not think this should be called a hot sauce at all, it is an extract that pretends to be a hot sauce. With that in mind, one positive thing I can say about it is that if you are looking for pure heat to add to your own creations this is one of the most affordable ways to purchase capsicum as a food additive.
Dave’s Ghost Pepper hot sauce is not for the timid. Every bit of heat from the ghost pepper reveals itself. Not at first, but as a building intense heat.
Not long ago, my eight year old son asked me if he could bring a Carolina Reaper to his grade school. He told me he wanted to do it because he was proud of me. That other kids say the ghost pepper is the hottest in the world and he wanted to show them what is dad grew. Although wildly flattered, the answer was no. Why? Because I remain reasonably sane.
