Fresno Pepper Hot Sauce
Now introducing Atwater’s own hot sauce! We are pleased to share our new Fresno Pepper Hot Sauce with our customers. It gets its name from the deliciously spicy fresno peppers that we carefully selected for our hot sauce. Fresno peppers are right around the jalapeno pepper on the Scoville Scale. Fermentation captures the flavor of the peppers but also preserves the nutritional benefits. Jenny, who also makes our jam and pickles, prepares the fresno peppers and then combines them with sea salt and herb infused organic apple cider vinegar. She then puts them in pottery made locally by Beaumont Pottery to begin our traditional two week fermentation process. Fermentation captures the flavor of the peppers but also preserves the nutritional benefits. After the blend has successfully fermented for two weeks it is strained and bottled. The result is a spicy kick with unique herb notes. Goes great with our chicken salad, egg sandwiches, nachos, grilled cheeses, rice dishes, and more! Look for it on our shelves and our tables.
