Ol’ Benito sent me another product rather unexpectedly in the mail. I have learned this is how he rolls. Not one that looks for more than just my picky opinion, he seems to trust I will like what he does. I wouldn’t trust myself, but he does, and I admire that. It seems to be working well so far for the most part. I did a review of his Habanero Infused Maple Syrup back in November. I gave it a positive 3 1/2 flaming hearts. Will a chipotle version do as well? Those that know my tastes, know I am not a fan of smokey products like many of those that include chipotle and jolokia. So with that said, Ol’ Benito wants a solo review again from me. He shall get it.
Here is a little about the company from Ol’ Benito:
BENITO’S HOT SAUCE (OUR MISSION)
At Benito’s hot sauce we use a recipe that ensures a fresh taste in every drop without the use of any preservatives, pesticides, or fertilizers!
We obtain our organic Vermont grown organic chile peppers from Lehoullier Farm in Johnson, VT and Gaylord Farm in Waitsfield, VT. All sauces, BBQ rubs and chile pepper infused syrups, are made with care in small batches.
Our sauces, BBQ rubs and syrups are made from 100% organic hot peppers in order to capture the essence of fresh perfection! We also incorporate onions, carrots, and lime juice into the sauces in order to achieve the perfect balance of flavor. All sauces are a delectable addition to beef, fish, poultry, shrimp, tofu, eggs, and tortilla chips.
Our habanero and chipotle infused maple syrups pair wonderfully with breakfast foods like bacon, sausage and waffles as well as barbecued meats like chicken pork ribs and beef. Both syrups also serve as excellent dessert sauces for ice cream and sweet concoctions of all types.
All hot sauces, rubs and syrups are made with all natural and organic ingredients. I don’t use nonsense filler ingredients like xanthum gum, pepper mash, salt, added sugar, flour, corn syrup, or any artificial flavors or preservatives. I also make all of my products in small batches, I do not use contract packers for the sake of quality control issues.
Ultimately, the purpose of what we do at Benito’s is not about name recognition. I have no desire to become the next Tabasco sauce. We are simply about producing a unique product that is always made with fresh organic and all-natural ingredients. I love to hear that people are experimenting with our products and learning more about sustainable organic horticulture.
We are currently on the hunt for the quintessential Vermont Hot Pepper farm. We will keep everyone updated as the farm takes shape. Stay Well. – Ol’ Benito
