Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Hot Sauces are Here!

Trinidad Scorpion Pepper Puree

As part of our recent re-design and expansion of the Carolina Sauces online store, we have added several new hot sauces made from the Trinidad Scorpion Pepper (aka Moruga Scorpion Pepper), which recently dethroned the ghost pepper (aka bhut or naga jolokia) as THE hottest pepper in the world with a searing heat consistently greater than 2 million Scoville Heat Units.  It should come as no surprise that these hot sauces are brutally hot and meant to be used only in extremely small quantities, and with much care. That being said, some of these scorpion hot sauces are surprisingly flavorful, assuming you can handle the heat. Here's a brief introduction to our new Trinidad scorpion hot sauces, along with quick links to where you buy the hot sauces online:

Cajohn's Trinidad Scorpion Hot Sauce: The Cajohn's brand is well-known and highly respected among chiliheads and fiery-foods fanatics who appreciate quality hot sauces and crave authentic hot pepper flavor and fire. This new hot sauce from Cajohn's continues that tradition by focusing on purity of flavor and heat. The main ingredient is the Trinidad scorpion pepper, and rather than masking or playing down its intensity, the other ingredients in this all-natural hot sauce highlight and complement the characteristics of what is now recognized as the world's hottest pepper. The savory, tangy base is a traditional combination of vinegar, tomato and lemon juice, and only a few spices and seasonings are added to ensure that you'll have a genuine scorpion pepper experience when you (carefully) consume this incandescent condiment.

Cajohn's Trinidad Scorpion Puree:  You don't get simpler--and more dangerous--than this. Pureed scorpion peppers and vinegar, that is all you'll find in this pure pepper mash. If you enjoy cooking extremely hot foods or if you regularly make large batches of spicy chili, salsa or barbecue sauce, Cajohn's scorpion pepper puree is an excellent choice for you. This is what you'd make at home if you grew your own scorpion peppers and wanted a convenient "base" for making your favorite hot and spicy recipes. A little goes a long way when you're working with a hot pepper puree, so always err on the side of caution and add less than you think, because you can always add more if needed but you cannot do the reverse!

Cauterizer Trinidad Scorpion Hot Sauce

Heartbreaking Dawn's 1498 Trinidad Scorpion Hot Sauce:  This is one of the tamer (heat-wise) and more richly flavorful scorpion pepper hot sauces available, taking advantage of a blend of scotch bonnet peppers and scorpion peppers for a burn that takes you right to the edge... but doesn't push you over. Made from the finest all-natural ingredients, this hot sauce is sure to please foodies who appreciate fiery hot sauces: A touch of palate-pleasing fruit flavor and sweetness comes from the unique combination of apricots, blueberries and honey, but there are enough savory ingredients like soy sauce, garlic and sea salt to keep this hot sauce from turning into a sweet or fruity hot sauce. This appealingly tasty and seriously hot sauce complements grilled or smoked meats and poultry, including ribs, steaks, pork chops or loin, smoked turkey, and also roast chicken or portobello burgers.

Heartbreaking Dawn's 1498 Cauterizer Trinidad Scorpion Hot Sauce: Created in response to customer demand for a hotter version of her original 1498 hot sauce but preserving that gourmet flavor, Heartbreaking Dawn's Cauterizer Hot Sauce is significantly hotter and burns longer by replacing the scotch bonnet peppers in the original with even more scorpion peppers. This hot sauce rates our highest "five flames" rating and sports a deeper, darker color, but assuming your taste buds can handle the unforgiving burn they will be caressed with the same sublimely complex blend of savory and fruit notes. The new label is also quite attractive, with a stylized, mysterious skeleton figure that should serve as a sinister warning of this hot sauce's firepower.

Moruga Madness Hot Sauce:  If you are a fan of sweet hot sauces, especially extremely hot or ultra-hot sweet hot sauces, Moruga Madness scorpion hot sauce is for you.  The excruciating burn in this baby can be blamed on its inspired blend of moruga scorpion peppers (both fresh AND powdered) plus black pepper and exotic caribe chilies. As a result, there are several layers of hellish heat (like Dante's Inferno) that will play devilishly with the other all-natural sweet and savory ingredients, leaving you to cry in pleasure and pain.

Trinidad Scorpion Pepper BBQ Sauce

Sancto Scorpion Hot Sauce:  Similar to Moruga Madness in sweetness, but focused on providing straightforward, "unadulterated" Trinidad scorpion flavor, this hot sauce uses only the scorpion pepper and no other chilies. The sweetness doesn't overpower but rather complements the natural flavor of the hottest chile pepper on the planet, making Sancto Scorpion Hot Sauce a preferred choice for robust, savory dishes that are enhanced by "bright" condiments. It's also great if you're making a homemade fiery barbecue sauce, a pot of flavorful chili, and other recipes or sauces that rely on multidimensional flavors.

All of these ultra-hot hot sauces are now on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company, just in time for your holiday shopping.

Zestfully yours,

PS: If you can't get enough heat in your life and you crave the powerful burn of the moruga scorpion pepper, you'll need to treat yourself to a jar of Cajohn's Trinidad Scorpion Salsa, which uses habaneros, jalapenos and scorpion chiles in a traditional tomato salsa base, and a bottle of their Trinidad Scorpion barbecue sauce, a tangy-sweet and super-hot tomato BBQ sauce that gets its intense heat from scorpion peppers as well as several other chilies.
