The Electric Hellfire Chili Bear is a hot sauce blend made up of our best 2016 hot sauces. So many pepper varieties fermenting for over one year means an extraordinarily delicious and complex hot sauce; yet the Electric Hellfire can be eaten with eggs, beans and rice, added to yogurt for a spicy creama -- anyway you'd usually enjoy hot sauce.
Heat Level: 3 of 3 chilis
Peppers: Bishops Crown, Scorpion, Red Anaheim, Dutch Finger, Red Fresno, Naga Morich, Fish Pepper
Ingredients: Peppers, Water, Rice Vinegar, Salt, Wine, Beer, Sugar, Xantham Gum (to prevent separation)
Our salt brined hot sauces are lovingly made: Virginia-grown peppers ferment with a salt brine and sake in our barrels. The fermentation process draws out the flavors from each unique variety of pepper. All these layers of flavor are glorious after some time in our barrels -- a 3 month ferment is better than a 3 week ferment time! We then process the fermented chilis for a smooth, easily pourable hot sauce, finished with some vinegar.
Our 2017 peppers came from The Farm at Sunnyside and Barajas Produce. Farmer Casey from the Farm at Sunnyside in Washington, VA spent years in the Peace Corps working in chili loving places and wanted to grow the many varieties of chilis he encounter back to the US. We aim to highlight a few unique varietals in addition to a handful of chili blends.
