5 Things to Do Before You Drizzle That Hot Sauce

So, you’ve taken the plunge and decided to explore the world of gourmet heat with a bottle of our artisanal hot sauce. Congratulations, chilli lover! 🥳

But before you go pouring that fiery goodness onto everything in sight, we’ve got some tips to ensure you get the most out of every drop. Let’s jump right in!

1. Understand the Heat Level: Every hot sauce has its unique Scoville rating, which measures its spiciness. Before you use it, understand its heat level to ensure you don’t overpower your dish. Remember, it’s easier to add more later than to try and fix an overly spicy meal.

2. Pair with the Right Foods: While it might be tempting to put hot sauce on everything, some foods complement the flavours better than others. For instance, a fruity hot sauce might go better with grilled chicken or seafood, while a smokier one might be perfect for beef or pork.

3. Start Small: Especially if you’re new to the world of hot sauces, it’s always a good idea to start with a small amount. You can always add more if you feel the need for more heat.

4. Mix It In: Instead of just pouring it on top, consider mixing the hot sauce into your sauces, marinades, or even directly into your dish. This allows the flavours to meld better and gives a more consistent heat throughout.

5. Store It Right: To maintain its flavour and potency, ensure you store your hot sauce correctly. Most hot sauces should be stored in a cool, dark place. Some might even require refrigeration after opening.

Hot sauce is more than just heat; it’s about flavour, excitement, and enhancing your meals. By following these tips, you’ll ensure every meal with our hot sauce is a culinary delight. And remember, it’s not just about the spice, but the journey of flavours you experience with each bite.
