Review: Sherbie’s Homemade Hot Pepper Sauce

Sherbie's Homemade Pepper Sauce
“Tastes Great on Everthing”

As soon as I saw this saw I was biased. At least on the label alone. Even though it isn’t the greatest label it has a Boxer on it. My favourite dog. My dog I left after I moved out on my own. Now it is just a semi-weekly treat when I see her (Lola). Anyways, back to the sauce. For an unheard of, homemade sauce, this stuff is pretty good. I don’t think it will win any awards but it is pretty decent.

All Natural Ingredients: Cayenne Pepper, Red Serrano Peppers, Apple Cider, Vinegar, Tomato, Honey, Sea Salt and Spices

The main pepper in this sauce is the Serrano. I haven’t had to much exposure to this pepper as most sauces are cayenne, habanero or jalapeno but from what I have had I like. This sauce has great fresh aroma and a texture that is watery but just viscous enough to not be annoyingly thin.

Heat wise it is not a scorcher but it has a zesty bite that lingers for quite awhile. This is a good everyday sauce with a wide range of applications. My field test was a my finger and a cracker. It is one of those sauces that is good no matter what. I don’t think it will ever be massed produced but will ever remain in independent anoniminity.

Sherbie's Homemade Pepper Sauce

This is one of those sauces that is bordering on the almost to much for ketchup and come on you almost did it with the heat. A combination that I think is quite good. You can slather this over everything but the heat never really gets to you. I can complain though because this sauce does have a lot of flavour even if it isn’t that hot.

Sherbies Homemade Pepper Sauce has everything good going for it. Great taste, texture, appearance, and just enough of a kick. If you are interested in giving a sauce off the beaten path a try this one is recommended.

Packaging 7/10 ““ as cute as the Boxer is (could be 10/10 but lets have fun with it)
Aroma 8.0/10 ““ Pleasant and warm
Appearance 7.5/10 ““ Thick red ““ little to viscous
Taste 7/10 ““ Decent flavour
Heat 5/10 ““ Medium heat with a spicy bite

Overall 7.2/10 ““ Worth a try
