Turns out pickling the habaneros gave the sauce a great bite, and ingredients such as garlic and cumin complemented the pepper. The product is all natural, vegan, gluten-free and contains no added fillers. The hot sauce can be found at local restaurants and for purchase at stores across the Twin Cities. … [Read more...] about Here’s food for thought: Ideas for local gifts to stuff in holiday stockings
