Oh yeah, the hot sauce gods smile upon this! Pic from Hoardable Hot Sauce’s FB page.

Over the next two weeks, we’re going to do bite-size posts that throw the spotlight where it belongs: on the local producers, the local artisans, the local business owners who are putting out unique, high-quality products.
