Tabasco

Tabasco is the name and trademark of a range of hot, spicy chilli sauces made in the US state of Louisiana. The original Tabasco sauce is fiery red and made from the tabasco variety of chilli pepper. It's combined with vinegar and salt and matured in oak barrels. Other varieties include a milder green Tabasco sauce made from jalapeño peppers and green peppers.

Preparation

Just a few drops of Tabasco add a hot and spicy chilli flavour to meats, sauces, burgers, salad dressings or cocktails. Use sparingly, or to taste.
