We were recently eating lunch with some friends at Maya Cove - a nearby Caribbean joint with surprisingly good food, and one of our companions asked the owner for some of the "good sauce". Two very suspicious bottles were promply delivered to our table - Baron West Indian Hot Sauce and Aunt May's Bajan Pepper Sauce.
I was unfamiliar with these, but I like most hot sauces, so I thought I'd give them a try. Both are made with a mustard seed base and lots of Scotch Bonnet peppers. If you're familiar with peppers and the Scoville heat scale, you already know that it doesn't get much hotter than Scotch Bonnets - there are a couple of Asian peppers and a different West Indies pepper (the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion - ya gotta love that name!) that are hotter. But as a comparison, a jalapeño rates at about 3,500 - 8,000 heat units, while the Scotch Bonnet is somewhere between 100,000 - 350,000. So as you can imagine, this hot sauce was HOT!!
No, it didn't actually blister my tongue, lips or cheeks, but it certainly burned. And here's what I don't get: Why, when you mix food and pain, does it taste good? We all sat there continuously drizzling this liquid fire on our food, or using it as a dipping sauce, instead of screaming in agony and immediately contacting our attorneys about filing for damages. And it tasted really good.
Unfortunately, these sauces are not that easy to find in the normal world. Maya Cove sells Auntie May's, and I was able to find Baron's on Amazon. And I've been busy compiling a list of all the things that go well with Scotch Bonnet peppers - it's turning into a long list. I strongly recommend that you stop reading this and immediately begin your search for some of this sauce. And then - Enoy the Burn!
