4 Zesty Gifts for Hot Sauce Newbies (and one for wimps)

If you'd like to introduce someone to the wonderful world of spicy foods without burning them out and scaring them away, here are some mild but flavorful hot sauce gifts that will please the palate while bypassing the pain of more fiery hot sauces:

1. Mild Hot Sauces Gift Set: This excellent "starter kit" includes 5 different hot sauces that are mildly spicy, with just a touch of peppery heat and plenty of rich flavor. Includes African Rhino Mild Peri-Peri Pepper Sauce, Ring of Fire Garden Fresh Pepper Sauce, Marie Sharp's Mild Habanero Pepper Sauce, Capsicana Zing Gourmet Sauce (comes with recipes!), and Nando's Extra Mild Lemon Peri Peri Sauce.

2. Fruits on Fire Gift Set: This gift set is a little hotter, for folks who are ready to take the next step after the Mild Sauces without plunging into the fire. Fruits on Fire features 6 unique and delicious hot sauces that masterfully add fruit to temper the heat of the chile peppers and add food-friendly flavors. Includes a bottle each of Dave's Gourmet Ginger Peach Sauce, Marie Sharp's Grapefruit Pulp Habanero Sauce, Maui Pepper Apples Ass Hot Sauce, Melinda's Mango Habanero Sauce, Toad Sweat Cranberry Dessert Hot Sauce (excellent on turkey, chicken & pork, too!), and Scorned Woman Sweet Majic Hot Sauce made with peaches and apricots.

3. Tortuga Sweet & Savory Caribbean Sauces Gift Box comes with a bottle each of Spicy (but not hot) Seafood Grill Sauce, zippy Mango-Ginger Stir-Fry Sauce, and moderately spicy, award-winning Sweet Heat Caribbean Pepper Sauce, all made in the Caribbean. The festively colorful gift box includes easy recipes, too!

4. NC Mountains Pepper Jelly Gift Box: This lovely white gift box includes 2 jars of your choice of red or green pepper jellies, in your choice of Mild or Hot -- and the Hot isn't really that spicy; after all, these pepper jellies are made in North Carolina, not New Mexico! Our pepper jellies are hand-crafted in the North Carolina mountains using an old family recipe and locally grown & dried peppers, for an old-fashioned sweet & savory condiment that's great with roast beef, chicken or pork, with cheese & crackers, or heated until melted and used as a grilling glaze.

And for the friend or loved one who's a "hot sauce wimp" or simply prefers to avoid all spicy foods, give them our blissfully mild and decadently delicious Sweet Gourmet Gift Set, featuring full-size jars of all-natural gourmet Apple Sauce, old-fashioned creamy Maple Butter, cinnamon-spiced Apple Chutney, and luscious Peach Cocktail MmmMarmalade.

Zestfully yours,
