Butterfly Bakery VT Hot Sauce
Claire Georges and her small team in Montpelier, VT have got slinging knockout hot sauce recipes down to a science. Using exclusively Vermont-grown peppers and local add-ins like small-batch beer, spirits, and maple syrup, Butterfly Bakery's sauces are uniquely nuanced, incredibly well-balanced, and jam-packed with New England flavor.
Distinctively floral (thanks to a healthy addition of Heady Topper beer) with a green serrano freshness. Medium hot.
Suggested pairings: Grilled chicken, steak, creative michelada.
Robust notes of cilantro, sweet onion, and jalapenos. Medium hot.
Suggested pairings: Everything, but especially tacos, shrimp, frittata, or your favorite salsa (just add a few drops!).
Maple Rum Chipotle
Hands down the most elegant maple chipotle sauce our tastebuds have been graced by. Jalapenos are slow-smoked over Claire's own maple wood and then combined with St. Johnsbury Distillery's Maple Rum and a sweet splash of pure Vermont maple syrup. There is nothing artificial about this gorgeous sauce -- the texture is light and smokiness delicate, integrating beautifully with the peppers and maple. Mild hot.
Suggested pairings: Pork chops, carrot sticks, pizza, chili.
