Back in 1992, NPR’s Weekend Edition reported that salsa was officially outperforming ketchup in US markets. That little factoid has been debated ever since, but the intention was clear – Americans love hot sauce. Cookbook author Jennifer Trainer Thompson challenges us to take our passion for the fiery condiment one step further by making our own. Her new book Hot Sauce! is peppered with regional recipes from Hawaiian Chile Water to habanero-laced Caribbean style spreads that will spice up your cooking in no time.
