We strive to produce as many ingredients as we can and source any others from local producers. Aside from a few bulk staples, we grow all of the peppers, onions, garlic and herbs that go into our recipes. We source certified organic vinegar and honey from producers in Ontario. Hand-harvested sea salt from a family-run salt works in Portugal. Certified Organic olive oil from Greece. And Certified Organic raw cane sugar from producers in South America. Our water purification/sanitizing system utilizes ozonation as an environmentally friendly option - inputs of only electricity and water, with resulting by-products of oxygen and H2O!
Freshly grated peppers are blended by hand with sea salt and lacto-fermented in aging barrels for many months as a first step towards becoming our hot sauce!
