I sampled a bottle of the most magical hot sauce my freshman year at SUNY Purchase, courtesy of a visiting vendor and our half-assed farmers market initiative. I am cursing myself for never writing down the brand, but I did notice that part of its addictive sweetness -- the perfect contrast to its intense bite -- incorporated apple cider vinegar.
I doubt I will ever find another bottle of the stuff, but for someone who's looking for an extremely flavorful and spicy-sweet hot sauce, what might you recommend? I had a peach and vidalia onion hot sauce the other day and it was decent, but totally lacking in the sinus clearing department. I want something that doesn't compromise on heat, but has that tangy, almost fruity flavor.
