Well, this would be a review if I had the bottle in front of me to take a picture and post it, but sine I don't AND I can't remember the name of the sauce (it's a local one) let's just call this a grouse. Ok, the BIL got me a bottle of local (Charles Town WV) hot sauce for Christmas and of course for NY Eve I had to break it open. What a dissappointment. Definitely not national-level sauce. It is basically blended tomatoes and some kind of hot pepper. The texture is just about like a .99 can of spaghetti sauce you get get at the grocery store: thick, but when you tilt the plate it separates into slude and water. I can see some kind of seasoning...oregano perhaps? but I sure can't taste it. The ONLY taste....is hot. Unbearably, ridiculously hot. I can see adding a couple of spoonfulls of this to chili, to rachet up the heat. That's all I can using it for. I'm afraid that +Oz du Soleil
and +carter lee
have utterly trained my taste buds into expecting something much, much more. Later tonight, I'll meander around with my trusty cell phone, locate the jar, and post a pix. In the meatime, here's the sauce itself.
