The San Francisco Giants have won the World Series. They were super hot and swept the Detroit Tigers in four games. It is an exciting time for baseball fans in the Bay Area. Everybody has ‘Giant’ fever including the farmers market. It has been hot literally in the Bay Area. The temperature today will reach seventy three degrees. Since everybody is hot and has Giants fervor it may be appropriate to try a commemorative hot sauce from ‘Tierra Farms’. Tierra farm is located in Windsor California and sell their produce at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco. Tierra produces a number of quality and unique hot sauces. Their sauces are seasonal and created in small batches. Once a sauce is gone you will have to wait till next year. Today’s sauce is called “Hot As The Giants’. This is a sauce created with the ‘Jamaican Habanero’ pepper. This bottle contains an orange sauce and is topped with a black cap which are the Giant’s team colors. We could not resist this purchase.

The ingredient list is short and consists of; Jamaican Habanero Chiles, Vinegar, Salt, and citric acid. The minimal ingredients should showcase the flavor of the Jamaican Habanero pepper. It is a thin sauce that separates easily. The bottle needs to be shaken with each use. The sauce smells of habaneros and vinegar. The taste straight out of the bottle is of fruity citrus like pepper with a singeing kick in the behind that is delivered to your mouth. The vinegar enhances and compliments the peppers. The salt is present but not noticed to create a good balance. This sauce is not for novices. The heat level would be 3 stars out of 5. If you are a habanero lover the Jamaican peppers delivers. I personally love habaneros and thrive on the heat. This bottle will not last long because I will put it on everything.
Go Giants!!!!!

cookiecrumb, Leah from Tierra was an inspiration to my passion about chiles. When she sold peppers at Marin she talked me into smoking some jalapenos to make chipotle. The rest is history.
