Small Axe Peppers Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce is made with peppers that are sourced from community gardens and urban farms in cities across the United States. San Diego, Tucson, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Charlottesville, and many more have all sold peppers at premium prices to Small Axe Peppers Hot Sauce. Made with ghost peppers, this is by far the spiciest hot sauce tat Small Axe has ever made! The freshly ground chipotle powder in this hot sauce adds a smokiness which makes it a perfect addition well in any chile, pozole, gumbo, or any other slow cooked meal that needs a little extra spice! Heat Level: Extra Hot It all started in The Bronx! The Bronx Hot Sauce was born in the spring of 2014 when Small Axe Peppers and GrowNYC donated serrano pepper seedlings to five community gardens in The Bronx. The following year, with the support of Bronx Green-Up of the New York Botanical Garden, twenty additional gardens asked to participate. Together, they collectively grew almost a ton of serrano peppers, which made over 15,000 bottles of hot sauce, and a new economic model for urban farming was born! Since then, Small Axe Peppers has expanded its sourcing to nine other urban areas to purchase locally-grown peppers from more than 50 community gardens across the United States. More and more gardens ask to participate each year and they are open to partnering with all of them!
