After a long search, we finally found a North Carolina hot sauce that met all of our criteria to bear the Carolina Sauce Company name: High-quality all-natural ingredients, peppery fire that's spicy-hot but won't burn out your tastebuds, and a versatile food-friendly flavor that will complement and enhance your food instead of overwhelming it or changing its flavor. With no further ado, I'm pleased to introduce to you our Three-Pepper Hot Sauce from the Carolina Sauce Company! Made by hand in small batches on a family farm in the Piedmont region of NC, this tasty hot sauce features an intriguing blend of jalapeno pepper, cayenne pepper and black pepper in a subtly sweet and tangy vinegar base. But this is not your run-of-the-mill, one-dimensional vinegar pepper sauce from your grocery store. No, this baby packs a hefty peppery wallop that will announce its presence with authority but then mingle quite pleasantly with the natural flavors of your food, becoming the life of the party on your palate. Unlike super-hot hot sauces, Carolina Sauce Co. Three-Pepper Hot Sauce lets you enjoy bite after spicy bite without numbing your tongue. So if you are ready to move up from tamer hot sauces like Texas Pete, Frank's Red Hot, Tabasco and other commercial brands, or if you appreciate a good all-purpose hot sauce with real flavor, then our Three Pepper Hot Sauce is for you.
During my research for just the right hot sauce to bear our company name, what really sold me on this 3-Pepper Hot Sauce was its versatility (as well as its all-natural ingredients). You really can use it on pretty much any sort of non-dessert food, either at the table or in a recipe. Greg and I have been having a blast in the kitchen playing with this hot sauce in a variety of recipes, and trying it at the table on all sorts of savory dishes. Here are just a few of the many ways you can enjoy our Three-Pepper Hot Sauce:
*With breakfast foods including scrambled eggs, omelets, frittatas, hash browns, sausage, biscuit sandwiches, quiche, etc.
*In sandwiches, subs, wraps, burritos, and on pizza and burgers
*As a marinade (or in a marinade) and splashed on grilled foods including meat, chicken, sausage, fish & seafood, shrimp kabobs, grilled portabellas & other veggies
*In ground meat recipes including burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, sloppy joes
*In stews, hearty soups, baked beans and chili
*As a seasoning condiment for side dishes including roasted veggies, skillet potatoes, collards and other greens
*As a spicy-hot eastern NC style vinegar-based barbecue sauce for Carolina pulled pork BBQ (makes a great substitute for Ole Time Hot Sauce, which is currently out of stock at the manufacturer level, and a mellower alternative to Scott's BBQ Sauce)
*To add heat to stir-fry recipes and Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southwestern dishes
*In Bloody Marys and homemade cocktail sauce
*If you're a fan of Zing Sauce and just wish it had more heat, simply combine some Zing with our Three-Pepper Hot Sauce!
*If you're a fan of Durn Good Hot Sauce but want to tone down the tartness of its vinegar base without dulling the heat, simply blend some Durn Good with our Three Pepper Hot Sauce!
