Hot sauce with a cause? Count me in! Tamerlaine Farm, an animal sanctuary in Montague, NJ, have developed a line of hot sauces to raise money and awareness. Not only are these sauces delicious, but 100% of the proceeds go towards the animals that live on the farm.
Each hot sauce is named after an animal on the farm. A cute little blurb about the animal can be found on the side of the bottle, giving the consumer a real connection to the cause.
Most hot sauce connoisseurs would agree that every meal has an ideal type of hot sauce to go with it. Because Tamerlaine Farm makes three different sauces, it’s easy to find one to go with any meal.
The most versatile of the three was the Rudy’s Hot Smoked Red. The smokiness sets this hot sauce apart from more traditional vinegar-based sauces. This sauce would be perfect as a marinade for anything Buffalo-related. Marinate tofu, add a kick to potato salad, or throw it some hummus for a unique snack. Keep in mind, this was the hottest of the three in my opinion.
For Hispanic-style food, I’d suggest Casey’s Hot Super Green sauce. A jalapeno-tomatillo base, with a hint of bright lemon, this sauce had a nice acidity that made it quite different from the other two. This is perfect on top of nachos, in a burrito, or on tacos. The sour note from the lemon helps cut through the richness of “cheese” and “sour cream” often found in those types of dishes.
The Artie’s Hot Bourbon Blend was my personal favorite. A little sweet, a little, spicy, a little smokey, and very bourbon-y (I love bourbon, so I may be a little biased here). This sauce is great for barbecue and Southern food. I really loved it in sautéed greens. It was a perfect accompaniment for my vegan mac and cheese!
Be sure to check out these sauces and support a wonderful cause! They also have a really good recipe page in the website to inspire you! Nothing feels better than knowing you’re helping to save animals while consuming massive amounts of hot sauce.
