Blackberry Bourbon experimental

Blackberry Bourbon - Hot Sauce

We start with a simple sugar and water caramelization, add apple cider vinegar and farm grown blackberries. This base is blended with salt cured Carolina Reaper chilis, Dried Mortiala chilis, and Maker’s Mark bourbon. It’s sweet, it’s sour, it’s boozy, a little smokey, and as always, it’s hot.

Everything is grown organically on our farm using rain water and chicken shit.

About the growing season

Summer 2023 came on the heels of a record-breaking snow year. The growing season had a cold, wet, slow start followed by a hot spell with temperatures north of 100 degrees. Consequently, the chili plants did not set fruit until late June. With a growing season a full month short of that required for hot peppers, many peppers were picked while green. To get the super-hot varieties finished, plants were moved under-cover and allowed to mature under grow lights and supplemented heat.
