Black Cap Hot Sauce is an all natural fermented hot sauce made in Columbus, Ohio. We wanted to make hot sauce hot sauce that is not only delicious, but great for your body, too. Chock full of probiotics, our ingredient list is clean: Fresno peppers, garlic, ginger, lime zest, salt, chia seeds, and water - that's it. Our 100% natural ingredients are fermented in ridiculously small batches, bottled by hand, and delivered straight to you. Goes great on...well, everything. Maybe not ice cream.
100% natural ingredients, vegan, unpasteurized, unfiltered, and unapologetically delicious.
With the help of family and friends, we narrowed Chef Jack’s hot sauce recipes to two finalists. One was bottled with white caps, and one was bottled with black caps. As the taste tests began, we heard again and again that “black cap” was the favorite, and the name stuck with us! Black Cap Hot Sauce tips a (backwards flat bill) hat to the art of fermentation and preserving culture.
THE SECRET INGREDIENT
Fermentation is an art, and every batch of hot sauce is a little different. Some batches of Black Cap become a bit more "lively" than others, so KEEP REFRIGERATED, even prior to opening. This will slow the fermentation down and reduce your chances of bubbles or an overflow. If this happens, your hot sauce is not "bad," it is just the wild fermentation kicking in.
When your hot sauce arrives, pop it in the fridge. The longer it stays unrefrigerated, the more your product will continue to naturally ferment.
