Boston is a thriving beautiful clean city home to many Universities including MIT the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where college kids learn to be engineers and create many of our new innovations. There is Harvard where they groom many of our CFO’s the Chief Financial Officers of our companies and set policy for what we buy from corporations. Whoever did the bombings took a heavy swipe at our freedom to celebrate something in public.
Now Boston will be know as a hot spot for terrorism. This is a horrible lead into talking about hot sauce the subject I originally wanted to explore. If you read back to any of my rants you know me and you know I like to discuss just about any subject briefly. Even that popular show Dancing With The Stars which is one of the few shows that airs live on TV had a problem in airing fun entertainment meanwhile one of their performers an Olympic gymnast who was from the Boston area had to smile and shimmy all well knowing her home town was suffering.
We all know that the evil forces win in the world if we stop our daily lives and give them any recognition for their senseless acts of brutality. So even you atheists say a prayer to the sun that rises everyday no matter what or pray to your God for those who have suffered physically and even more for all of us who are secretly in fear each day and thankful for surviving another day in this very fragile life of ours.
They will take powdered sugar and Tabasco sauce , blend it together and spread it on a steak as a glaze , or put it in tomato sauce for a seafood pizza, or even blend it in mayonnaise for a sandwich. After it is swished all over your food then there will be 4 types of more pepper sauce on your table just in case you still didn’t burn your throat enough.
Louisianans’ would be disappointed if their food didn’t fight back. I even met petite women on the road who keep a small bottle of the stuff in their purse just in case the restaurant doesn’t get the stuff out on the table fast enough. The stuff has a diamond shaped label and is simply called McIlhenny Co, Tabasco Brand Pepper Sauce made in the U.S.A.
The stuff only contains three ingredients, hot peppers, salt and vinegar. They mash it up and preserve it in old whiskey barrels for three years. In their warehouse they have roughly 40 to 50,000 barrels ageing. It is then blended into liquid in 72 two gallon vats. It has become part of the Louisianan culture and they just can’t get enough of the stuff.
So, how often do you use hot sauce? 18% say always
34% say sometimes
21% say hardly ever
27% say they never use the stuff
