How We Started Making Sriracha

x-20140727_vermontmaplesriracha_0053Vermont Maple Sriracha is a collaboration between Big Lenny and Jackson. A long time fan of sriracha sauce, Jackson was bummed when the sulfite preservatives in his favorite sauce started making him sick. Realizing that most of the ingredients could be sourced locally, and that Vermont maple syrup could be added he asked expert sauce chef Big Lenny to make him some. The results were outrageous and so Vermont Maple Sriracha was born!

Eight batches in and we’re closing in on the perfect recipe. Currently we’re working with a contract grower here in Vermont to provide us with a large harvest of locally grown peppers and garlic at the end of the growing season. In the meantime we’ll continue making small batches with the freshest US grown peppers we can source.
