Hot Sauce

For as long as chili peppers have been cultivated, at least 100,000 years, humans have been trying their hand at creating new and exciting flavors to add to their foods. The chili pepper plant is native to the Aztec region of Southern Mexico and was since carried across Europe and into Asia and Africa where the plant is now widely used for countless purposes in the culinary world. Today there is a hot sauce for just about any taste bud. Although the term “hot” is associated, flavors can vary from mildly spicy, to sweet, to savory to tangy to the hottest of the hot.

In the present day, barbecue sauce is a staple of household condiments around the world, and with the wide variety in production today there is a flavor to suit virtually any taste bud.
