The Hot Sauce that started it all!

There is a magical woman in this particular town who has spent her entire life there.  She is the matriarch and is known to the locals as Mama Lyda. For 30 years Lyda ran a tiny bar and cooked a feast for locals and visitors every Friday. Karin was informally adopted mid-way through our first visit. Lyda nearly handed her the keys to the bar to run while she was away. Through this adoption, Karin was afforded Lyda’s insight into local recipes, from Hot Sauce to learning the nuances of Buss Up Shut (more on that at another time).

With Lyda’s blessing, we made our own variations of her hot sauce. This is very much the authentic recipe.  Please note it has some Heat!
