Regular readers know that I'm really into smokin' hot sauces. I mean real hot. I'm the guy who the chefs at the local Thai restaurant know well enough to get their habanero paste ready for the medium rare steak flank. I'm the guy who checks out the local organic or Mexican grocery store for habanero sauce that's not very debased with tomato extract and other vegetable additives to make it palatable for mortals. Well, I got tired of this. I've decided I'm going to try and obtain a wholesale quantity of really spicy hot sauce to last me for years, I'm tired of running out, I'm tired of having to run to the store to restock on my cayenne powder. So a few weeks ago I ordered 7 hot sauces from Hot They just arrived, and the image is below. In the near future I plan to use each of these hot sauces during a meal, and I'll blog it as "7 days of hot sauce." I'm going to select from these brands my hot sauce for the years. I am looking for suggestions on what to eat to maximize my discernment powers.
