We are in the throes of the busiest part of the harvest time for peppers here in the northern hemisphere (the weeks during the end of summer and early autumn) and certain regions here in the U.S. are enjoying bumper crops this year (2015).
This year, we are thrilled with the extreme heat exotics we have procured from Allegheny City Farms as well as PuckerButt Pepper Company. We have received some amazing specimens including Carolina Reaper, Chocolate scorpion, MA wartryx, Cappuccino naga, BBG7, Caramel bhut, Brown Naglah, Peach bhut, Brazilian brainstrain, Trinidad Scorpion Butch T, Naga viper, Yellow fatalii, White devils tongue, Murupi Amarela, 7 pot, Pink Tiger, MOA scotch bonnet, Chocolate nagabrain, Red nagabrain, Kracken Scorpion, Chocolate Moruga, Peach hab, Pimenta puma X.. In years past, we simply loaded up carboys and buckets with the harvested peppers and either fermented and aged them and processed and stored them in vinegar for later bottlings.
SOMETIMES … the proverbial stars align and we’re able to do some bottling with these peppers are the height of freshness. This year was one of those years! The resulting sauces have far brighter color, more intense pepper flavor, and the heat level is — in most cases — far hotter than their normal year-round counterpart.
Our Caribbean sauce, King of Pain, as well as our unique specialty sauce, Delirium, are both available as Harvest Editions. In fact, we had just depleted our inventory of both when the first round of harvested peppers arrived, which means the only version of those sauces available at the moment are the Harvest Edition.
Head over to the Store and pick some up now while they’re still in stock. Our Harvest Edition sauces are a genuine, rare treat and usually sell out almost immediately!
