Saying Goodbye to Scorned Woman Sweet Majic Hot Sauce

Late yesterday I learned the sad news that Scorned Woman had discontinued their seductively sweet & spicy Sweet Majic Hot Sauce.  Made with peaches and apricots, plus horseradish and a secret blend of hot peppers, Sweet Majic paired well with pork and chicken, as well as with grilled fish and hamburgers.  This is the latest casualty in the Scorned Woman product line, which at one time included one of the best hot & spicy mustards on the market, an herb-seasoned wing sauce, and light & crispy Scorned Woman cheese straws packed with rich cheddary flavor and a fiery kick from the original Scorned Woman Hot Sauce.  To my knowledge, there are no plans to discontinue the ever-popular original, and their smoky-savory Scorned Woman Chipotle & Garlic Hot Sauce is also still available.

If you were a fan of Scorned Woman Sweet Majic Hot Sauce and are looking for another fruity, savory-sweet hot sauce to enjoy on the same sorts of food, here are my suggestions:

Georgia Peach & Vidalia Onion Hot Sauce:  This is one of the best-selling hot sauces on the market, and once you taste it, you'll know why.  The combination of juicy, ripe peaches with mellow sweet onions plus spicy hot peppers is like bottled sunshine on a lazy summer afternoon.  Enjoy it on everything you used Sweet Majic on.
Dave's Gourmet Ginger Peach Hot Sauce:  While Dave's Gourmet is widely known for their super-hot Insanity Sauce hot sauces, they do a surprisingly good job with milder, more flavorful and food-friendly sauces.  This is one of them.  The ginger and garlic add a subtle Asian flavor, and the mild-medium heat comes from red chiles.  And instead of adding sugar, Dave's Gourmet uses peach nectar to add just a touch of sweetness, making this sauce more savory and thus more versatile.  Enjoy it on the same dishes you'd use Sweet Majic, plus you can splash it on Chinese takeout or homemade stir-fry dishes to brighten up the flavors while adding just a little heat.

I hope you'll give one of these other tasty, fruity hot sauces a try.  If you have a favorite fruit-based hot sauce or a recipe pairing hot peppers with fruit, please share by leaving a comment on this blog.

Zestfully yours,

PS:  If you're jones-ing for some Scorned Woman Cheese Straw and need a cheesy, spicy snack, I highly recommend Deano's Cheddar Jalapeno Chips, made using real sliced jalapeno peppers with a cheddar cheese coating.  The jalapenos are thinly sliced and the heat level is about a medium, making these unique chips a low-carb, addictively delicious alternative to potato chips--and a nice substitute for the Scorned Woman Cheese Straws.
