First sold commercially in 1868 & patented in 1870 by Edmund McIlhenny, Tabasco is still made much the same way, except the aging process for the pepper mash is now up to 3 yrs in white oak barrels. The pepper fields & factory remain on Avery Island, Louisiana & about half of the 200 employees live on the island, where many of their parents & grandparents also lived & worked. CEO Tony Simmons is the 7th generation McIlhenny to preserve the Tabasco legacy. #South #Southern
Hot sauce is hotter than ever right now, and we aren’t talking about the Texas Petes and Srirachas of yore. Tabasco Family Reserve: This limited edition version of the classic has a deeper, more full-bodied chili flavor—a result of aging the pepper mash up to 8 years in white oak barrels (the original is made from peppers aged for 3 years).
Potato hash is comfort food at its finest—perfect for highlighting a bevy of hearty, cool-weather produce. Our hash features colorful fingerling potatoes (celebrated for their naturally petite size and creamy flavor), sweet tinkerbell peppers and Lacinato kale, a robust variety popular in Tuscan cooking. The delectably rich flavors of baked eggs and aged cheddar cheese—added to the hash right before it goes into the oven—are livened up with a splash of Tabasco hot sauce served on the side.
