Hot Sauce

From reading lots of different blogs, I know that many families have their special entrees and side dishes that they like. But my family is very different and most meals are accompanied by a vast selection of hot sauces. Our cabinet currently contains 26 different varieties of hot sauce - in my mind this is extreme! We also have duplicates of some of these 26.

In our travels, we look for new hot sauces. 2 "different" places we have found sauces are Cozumel, Mexico and El Progresso, Honduras. The least expensive sauces definately came from Honduras. At .50 to .75 per bottle, we can afford bunches of different sauces. (At a grocery store in Honduras, they had all the sauces shelved any hot sauce, chili sauce, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce was on the shelf beside Cranberry Sauce...they probably don't know what cranberry sauce is. I got a chuckle out of this)

We usually put bottles of hot sauce in the boys stockings for Christmas. Allen started the "Christmas morning taste test". It involves vigoously shaking the bottle, uncapping it, putting some on the end of your finger and tasting. Then the girls and I watch and see how long it takes for smoke to start coming out of their ears. So far, Will and James have not jumped on board with this tradition but Rob, Andy and Allen all participated this year.
