The General discovered almost by accident that green cayenne peppers picked just before they turn red can bring a truly unique, tangy, earthy flavour. Mean Green still carries the same fresh flavour as Dead Red, and that same rich concentration of all-natural cayenne peppers.
Much of the harvesting of the green peppers happens at the end of a growing season, when these mature, perfectly balanced (but somewhat stubborn) peppers just decide to stay green; as such, The General usually ages these peppers a bit longer. A “late heat” that won’t jump out at you right away, very popular at the breakfast table, the perfect balance of flavour and heat.
Heat Level: According to The General, this sauce brings a solid heat of 5-6 out of 10. However, some vintages run a touch hotter during hot, dry summers.
Ingredients: Louisiana Cayenne Peppers, Distilled White Vinegar, Salt, Garlic.
