Small Axe Peppers Hot Sauce is truly the “heat that helps”. Small Axe Peppers is a sustainable company that is dedicated to connecting you to your local community gardens and neighborhood urban farms. While their roots began in a borough of New York called The Bronx, Small Axe Peppers have proudly planted seeds across America from San Diego to Baltimore and many cities in between. With a total of 75 gardens in 15 cities and growing, Small Axe Peppers is making a big impact.
How it works:
At the beginning of each growing season, Small Axe Peppers provides seeds to local, participating community gardens. These gardens have a dedicated area that will grow the seeds throughout the season. Local nonprofits often assist the gardeners in the process of growing and harvesting. After the peppers have been collected, the peppers are cooked and bottled with guidance from chef King Phojanakong. The peppers are then transformed into the signature sweet and savory hot sauces we have come to love. The sauces are then bottled. The founders have committed to buying independent core products from local suppliers in New York and the surrounding areas. Finally, the bottles are distributed to local stores that support sustainably sourced community products. Each bottle bought directly supports the local community garden that grew the peppers.
In summary, Small Axe Peppers Hot Sauce provides local community gardens across America with pepper seeds. When the seeds have grown and been harvested, Small Axe Peppers buys the peppers back from the participating gardens to create the hot sauce that brings flavor and variety to our table. Therefore, each bottle you buy directly supports local community gardens across America.
This Kind Planet was provided with three bottles of Small Axe Peppers Hot Sauce:
The Bronx- Greenmarket The Detroit- Ghost Pepper The Chicago- Red Hot Jalapeno
Each bottle has unique bursts of flavors.
The Chicago Hot Sauce was an overall favorite. Jalapeno peppers give this hot sauce a subtle kick. With a mixture of flavors such as yellow mustard, dill pickles, spicy relish, and celery salt, this bottle captures the taste of Chicago perfectly. The heat index is 2 out of 5. So, even those who fear heat can enjoy this sauce. The Chicago Hot Sauce would pair great with eggs, tacos, or even, dare we say, your Chicago-styled hot dog. This could be your everyday hot sauce.
The Bronx Hot Sauce provides layers of flavor. Beginning with sweet tang and ending savory hotness, The Bronx Hot Sauce sends your tastebuds on a journey. Serrano peppers are the base of this sauce. We added The Bronx Hot Sauce to our rib sauce. It provided a perfect savory, sweet addition. The heat index is also a 2 out of 5. So, again this could be a good choice for those who enjoy a mild to medium level of heat.
The Detroit Hot Sauce brings the heat! This Detroit Hot Sauce consists of a combination of ghost peppers, chipotle peppers, and habanero peppers. This combination provides a hot, smoky taste. The heat is not one that leaves taste buds burning. Instead, mango and tomato are added to keep the heat smooth and enjoyable. We added The Detroit Hot Sauce to our chili. It is the secret ingredient we didn’t know we were missing. With the heat index a 5 out of 5, this sauce is one for real hot sauce lovers. It will provide that intense burst of heat you love.
