Today I’m taking a look at a hot sauce that is made in Montana by Arthur Shubert of Arthur Wayne Hot Sauce, LLC. When Arthur first started his company he had two sauces – his “Haba Haba Dime” and his “Mango Habanero.” Arthur now have several different flavor profiles and the one I’m going to be reviewing is his “Huckleberry Ghost.”
White Vinegar, Wild Huckleberry, Water, Ghost Pepper, Pineapple, Salt, Natural Sugar, Xanthan Gum
Aroma and Texture:
The first thing that hits me is a tart aroma followed by the Ghost Pepper. The aroma isn’t that of a super hot hot sauce but the aroma of the Bhut Jolokia is there. Pineapple is present as well to round out this sweet and tart hot sauce. The texture is a little bit on the runny side but you know me, I couldn’t care less about the texture of hot sauce.
This sauce is very delightful. The Huckleberry taste is the star of the show. The pineapple adds a nice sweetness and vinegar presence isn’t too much but it is there. Whenever I have a very fruit-forward hot sauce I think of breakfast fare and deserts. I’ve had this on waffles, pancakes, ice cream and eggs. I didn’t like this sauce on eggs but you know me, I try EVERY hot sauce I come across on eggs. The first food item I tried this sauce on was a brownie pictured below and it was awesome!
According to Arthur’s description of this sauce on his website he said “Our sauce will not burn your face off, but will bring the right amount of heat to the table. Enjoy!” and he’s right. Despite the fact that this is a Bhut Jolokia sauce the burn on this sauce is nice and enjoyable while still giving you a proper sting that us chileheads love. To me, this sauce is around the medium category and will receive a 5 out of 10 on the heat-0-meter.
This is the third sauce from Arthur that I’ve tried and it’s my favorite one so far. This sauce totes a solid tart fruitiness with a nice burn to put a smile on my face. If you’re in the mood for a fruity hot sauce with a medium burn then you should check out this sauce. I’ve been trying a lot of fruit-heavy hot sauces as of late and this is one of my favorite ones so far. I’ll provide a link below to where you can find Arthur Wayne Hot Sauce, LLC as well as their Facebook page. I thank you so very much for taking the time out of your day to read this. Be kind and as always stay on the spicy side of life. It’s more fun that way!
