IT SAUCE's new hot sauce, Aji Charapita is made from Aji Charapita Peppers.
Charapita's grow wild in Peru, specifically the Amazonian rainforest. They are only the size of a pea and are considered one of the most expensive pepper varieties by weight.
Aji Charapita's are one of the most delicious and flavorful peppers in the world. They are small, but they pack big heat and great flavor. The beautiful smell and flavor profile is very floral and fruity with notes of pineapple and citrus. In Peru these tiny little peppers are grandmother's kitchen secret. Most cooking households have a plant in their yard or growing in their window.
We created IT SAUCE, Aji Charapita to be just as versatile as our previous sauces. It features a bright, vinegar base with balanced flavors of mustard, pineapple-citrus, and a beautiful tropical fruit finish.
Some applications (other than the obvious) we've used IT SAUCE, Aji Charapita for are things like Pork and Pineapple Tacos, Vegetable Marinades, Chicken Wings, Grilled Pineapple Glaze, Potato Salads, Deviled Eggs, Curry Chicken Salad, Grilled Seafood, and much more!
