At my house, hot sauce is a condiment we can never run out of. If we do, oh boy. We douse everything with the spicy stuff. That’s why I was excited to see the locally made small-batch hot sauces from Springfield Trading Company. Their spicy garlic variety adds smashed garlic to a classic Louisiana hot sauce recipe, and the smoky jalapeño makes good use of those perfect green peppers. They’ve offered a couple other types of sauce as well, and at press time they were slinging something a little more exotic: the Banana-peño, made with habaneros, jalapeños, aged rum, cumin, smoked bananas and garlic. And they recently released a Cajun-Creole seasoning blend with plenty of cayenne heat. You can order the sauces online or find them around town at Farmers Market of the Ozarks, Culture Counter, Hörrmann Meats and more.
