Another local hot sauce is on the plate today. It is Devil's Dew from Pepaheads's. Pepahead's is based in San Rafael California. They have a booth at the Marin Farmer's market on Sunday morning. Pepahead has numerous products, calenders, barbeque sauces and hot chile sauce. Today we have one of the signature sauces. It is 'Devil's Dew'. It is a Red Savina pepper concoction. The Red Savina is from the Habanero family. It is heat with a fruity flavor. The ingredients are simple. Red Savina habanero peppers, onion, water, garlic, vinegar salt and xanthum gum make up this sauce. The Red Savina is one of the hottest habanero's grown, so you know this sauce is a heavy hitter in the heat department.
The first taste was experienced naked on a spoon. It had a fruity first bite. Once the sauce has hit the back of your throat, the heat kicks in. Boy, Oh Boy!, does the heat kick in. If you are not used to a habanero blast, you may be gasping for a little air. The second taste was with a Super Burrito. This sauce is not for the timid. There is a great Savina pepper taste. The vinegar is mild. It just burns with flavor. There is a lot of flavor if you can survive the pepper rush. It is always fun to find local hot sauces. Peppahead Devil's Dew is a great find.
Tee hee, I got home with mine and Z asked if he could try it. That right there has never happened. Not being a father wanting to trample on my boy's adventurous spirit, offered a little on the back of his hand.
"It just doesn't stop Papa, it keeps burning and burning!"
I told him it was hot.
I wussed out.
After I saw Biggles' face go all squinchy and red.
Just so you know, love the hot sauces. I have several trays full in my fridge at home. This stuff is really hot and it continues. Did I mention it was hot?
