I always grew up with a garden: from time I can remember from at least. Once I lived in a house where I was able to have a garden again I couldn't wait to get started planting! Needless to say, growing here in South Carolina is a lot different than it is in Michigan where I grew up...
There were a lot of learning moments in that first year of gardening. Some things did well, others did not. The one thing that did REALLY well though was the peppers.
The second year I decided that I would plant more peppers to fill my garden. I planted only 3 types: jalapenos, habaneros, and a Carolina Reaper. I had so many peppers I didn't know what to do with them all! I decided on Hot Sauce.
Long story short, the hot sauces went over so well that I been making them ever since! I've expanded my pepper varieties and number plants. In 2018, I planted 36 plants in total in 17 different varieties. That's a lot of peppers! From those I was able to make 72 bottles of hot sauce and 13 containers of Hot Pepper Salts (which was a new experiment for the year).
I now continue year after year! After trying out several different species and learning about them I keep a high number of overall plants but limit myself more on the types. To follow along with where I am in the pepper cycle of the year, you can 'Follow the Peppers' below.
You can view a list of past sauces or to keep an eye out for when new items arrive this year, you can always find any new releases on the Lost Art Food Facebook page.
The sauces and salts prices are as follows:

Seeds have been planted! In all there are 49 peppers in 11 different varieties. This will be another busy year!
The first sprout has appeared! A small Burmese Bird has graced us with it's presence and others follow closely behind!
The seedlings are large enough and they have moved to soil: still indoors on a heating mat. (And in a mini-prison to protect from cats.)
The peppers have graduated and moved outside to enjoy all the warm weather. Now it's time to watch them grow!
Slow and Steady. Not all the peppers will come ripe at the same time so I will spend the next couple months picking them.
The time of the plants is over and the peppers are ready to be transformed into something delicious!
