Pepper Nectar's The Duke Hot Sauce (5 oz.)
This unique gourmet hot sauce from Pepper Nectar features the flavors of the Urfa Biber pepper -- and if your first reaction is to say "What in the world is an Urfa Biber pepper?" you can certainly be forgiven.
But a better question might "Where in the world" -- because Urfa Bibers are dried peppers hailing from Urfa, Turkey. They are slightly smoky, slightly sweet, slightly sour, slightly salty, and slightly chocolatey. Intrigued yet?
There's not stupefying levels of heat in The Duke hot sauce; it might better be described as a warm and pleasant heat level that really lets the flavors of this hot sauce shine. Hints of tomato pick up the acidity, and pineapple adds a sweetness that balances it all out.
Because of the smoky and earthy flavors, you might want to try this as a substitute on foods where you might normally reach for a chipotle sauce. You'll get the same general flavors but with less heat than a typical chipotle sauce, plus you'll get the complexities of the Urfa Biber.
P.S. Want to know something that's bound to annoy some folks from Louisiana? We recently made red beans and rice and substituted The Duke hot sauce for the usual Louisiana-style hot sauce in the recipe.... and it was amazing.
Grab a bottle and try some in your own recipes, or just on some scrambled eggs. However you do it, we think that you'll pretty quickly become a fan of both Urfa Biber peppers and The Duke hot sauce from Pepper Nectar.
