Chilebrown at home

Thursday, November 6, 2008


Chilebrown is my name and peppers are my game. Mad Meat Genius has searched the country high and low for the newest, finest capsicum buzz. It is a special treat when you find a sauce in your own backyard. Today we have found Hot Sauces from Triple T Ranch & Farm. They are located in Santa Rosa Ca. They grow apples, peppers, greens, and you name it. They grow organically and just so happen to bottle hot sauces. They have 4 different hot sauces. They are made seasonally and sold in a few farmers market. What is so special about them? They are made by organic peppers. There are no preservatives or crazy additives. What you see is what you get. It is basically, peppers, kosher salt and vinegar. Today we are trying the "911" sauce.

I traveled to the Marin Farmers Market and met Larry at the Triple T Ranch booth. You have to be named Larry to work at the Triple T. Apparently there are three Larry's in the Triple T clan. He had a bounty of colorful peppers. Larry went in the back and brought me some secret stash of his sauce. There is "911', 'Hopn' Jalapeno'(green) ,'Hopn' Jalapeno'(red), and 'Da Blend'. Luckily he had everything today. This is a seasonal product, so when it is gone you are just plum out of luck.

The '911' sauces ingredients are: Habaneros, Scotch Bonnets, Thai Dragons, Vinegar and Kosher Salt. There is a not a lot to it. There is a lot in the flavor. Of course it burns! It burns so good. It is not as hot as you would imagine. It has a potent, but flavorful taste. It has a clean taste of peppers. The vinegar and salt just highlight your pepper flavor A few drops will do you.
These sauces are limited. I look forward to them each year.
