In the rich soils at the foot of the Irazu Volcano in Costa Rica lies an old pepper farm. A variety of chile peppers grown there are allowed to ripen naturally and are hand-picked at their peak.

Irazu Naga Jolokia Reserve - Hot-Sauce-of-the-Month / October 2012
With this sauce, you can detect a slight smokiness which is characteristic of the Naga Jolokia "Ghost Pepper" before the fiery heat erupts in your mouth. Lemon and garlic round out the flavour a little bit, but it is definitely a real hottie! If you like lots of heat but good flavour as well, this is a great sauce for you.
