Bone Lee’s Original Gourmet Hot Sauce
Ten years ago, Bone Lee started experimenting with making hot sauce with peppers he grew. Over the years, he perfected his cayenne-based recipe, found a facility to make it commercially and a distributor, and today, his hot sauce is found all over the world – as well as at farmers markets in Islamorada, Tavernier and Key West, and various festivals in the Keys. His sauce also adds heat to Uncle Russ’ Gourmet Bloody Mary Mix, and finds its way into key lime pies he sells at markets. “It’s a traditional key lime pie recipe, and we infuse the hot sauce in the sweetened condensed milk,” he says. “It catches people off guard!” His hot sauce has fans near and far – J. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats listed it as a pantry staple for vegans, and you can watch its review by members of the Clifton Chilli Club in UK on YouTube.
