As the temperature drops outside, we’re going to crank up the heat… in your mouth! Texas-based Yellowbird has whipped up a tongue-numbing creation featuring tomatoes, carrots, onions… and a touch of ghost pepper, one of the hottest peppers on the planet. How hot is it? If you go by Scoville Heat Units (SHU) — the scientific way to measure a pepper’s heat — this scorcher comes in at approximately 23,435. Just for comparison, a typical jalapeño measures about 2,500-8,000 SHU. So we are talking hot.
But we’re also talking flavorful. The heat doesn’t overwhelm the flavor of this gorgeous condiment, it complements it. The rich and tangy combo of organic tomato paste, vinegar, and citrus makes it a terrific substitute for ketchup when burgers need a little extra boost, or your chili needs more heat. It deserves a place at the table for any barbecue… but it brings the heat to a veggie crudité as well. In a nutshell, this is one versatile hot sauce.
There’s a lot to love about Yellowbird’s Ghost Pepper condiment, but one of our favorite things is the ingredient label. That’s because you won’t find any funny chemicals, preservatives, or artificial anything. It’s non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and you can taste the difference that all-natural makes.
