Desert Island Game - Which spicy product (and why?)
So you all know the game - but we'll play it with a spicy twist: "You're stranded on a desert island, and you can only have an infinite supply of one spicy product, what would it be?" This can be a pepper (fresh or dried), hot sauce, salsa, you name it. But be specific and tell us why.
For me - It's simple Tabasco sauce. I love the vinegary tang and I'm thinking a dasher hot sauce would be really helpful for spicing up whatever I forage. I like many hot sauces more, but its simplicity is part of its charm for this need.
Honorable mention for an infinite supply of chipotle pepper. I'd really miss that smokiness.
Oh hard one! Mine would have to be Frank's buffalo sauce because it is healthy and I eat it on everything 🧡
Hmmm, what a toughie!
I would have to choose Schug, preferably a Yemenite version.
My honorable mention must be Szechuan chili oil.
Schug, while ubiquitous at better falafel and shawarma stands, is amazing mixed into hummus, served as a condiment to all cooked meats and fish, and is a surprising addition to curries, especially those with coconut milk. No matter what I could find on my desert island, it would be better with a good helping of schug.
(Incidentally, another amazing falafel/shawarma condiment, though not particularly spicy, is amba. If you've never tried it, it's worth locating. Tart, light heat, and amazing flavor!)
