The Detroit Hot Sauce gets its flavor from a unique combination of ghost peppers and chipotle peppers which blend together to produce a smokiness that captures the essence of the Motor City. Throw in some habanero to cut the spiciness and a little added sweetness from the mellowness of the carrots, and – voilà – you’ve got a hot sauce that’ll add the perfect touch to just about everything, but particularly your next burger!
Of course, each bottle purchased directly supports Detroit’s community garden revolution with each purchase! That’s right. If you haven’t heard, Detroit is in the midst of a renaissance with its burgeoning urban farming scene is playing an important role in the miraculous transformation. As the Detroit Hot Sauce is made with peppers grown in Detroit Community Gardens, we are thrilled to be adding a little spice to the movement!
Community Gardens are amazing resources in urban areas that are too often under-served. Each garden has a unique social mission, informed by the needs of the surrounding areas. From high school students, to immigrants and refugees, to people who simply want to enjoy a shady cool green space in the middle of the city, community gardens are places where people from all backgrounds and walks of life can come together.
Previously, these gardens depended on unreliable grants, donations, and out-of-pocket expenses to maintain their community gardens. Now, thanks to the Detroit Hot Sauce they are able to devote a portion of their garden to growing peppers as a cash crop, which allows them to fund their vital social programming.
With the Detroit Hot Sauce, Small Axe Peppers connects you directly to urban farms and community gardens in your neighborhood. You support these community gardens and urban farms each time you purchase this delicious hot sauce.
