Our Gutsy fermented hot sauces been fermented for 6 months. We’ve created a super spicy (hot), rich, tangy, fermented hot sauce that’s jam packed with probiotics and will liven up any dish.
Traditionally, all hot sauces were fermented hot sauces, prepared through fermentation not preservatives. It makes sense because, at its most basic only three ingredients are required chilli, salt and time. Once the fermentation process has completed, this probiotically spicy condiment has a fridge life of 18 months or more. Why add preservatives, stabilisers and flavourings when you can ferment?
With our usual Gutsy flair in crafting this fermented hot sauce we haven’t just made the basic. We’ve also added bush lemons, garlic, and koji (Japanese cultured rice) and then fermented for 6 months. What you’re left with is a super spicy (hot), rich, tangy, fermented hot sauce that’s jam packed with probiotics and will liven up any dish.
Ingredients: Pimiento (variety of Chilli), Bush Lemons, Garlic, Mineral Rich Sea Salt and Koji.
At Gutsy, we love experimenting with different fermentation methods and microbes. We especially love to be surprised with the myriad of flavours that are developed through the fermentation process.
Keep your Gutsy hot sambal refrigerated before opening if possible. But if you can’t keep it in the fridge for a while, it’s not a big deal. Fermentation is a preserving process so this hot sauce will keep for weeks out of the fridge. If you keep your probiotic hot sauce out of the fridge it will keep fermenting. Further fermentation is fine, the only problem is that carbon dioxide is a by-product of fermentation. So if keep your bacteria-rich hot sauce out of the fridge for too long, you may be sprayed with hot sauce juice first time you open it. It’s not an unhealthy, just messy.
Our Gutsy Fermentery is based in Brisbane, QLD. If you buy Gutsy Fermented Hot Sauce online, we’ll ship it directly to your door anywhere in Australia. When we ship your fermented goodies we pack them into a thermal box with ice packs. This keeps the fermented products cool for a few days depending on the outside temperature.
The thing is that our Australian Summers get pretty hot, and if your package is traveling a long way your fermented hot sauce will eventually warm up. As per the storage instructions above, it doesn’t matter if your hot sauce warms up, it’s actually a good thing (as far as probiotics go). Just beware, if you’re ordering in the middle of summer, and you live far away from Brisbane (Tas or WA) your fermented chilli might be a little fizzy when you first take off the lid. If this is the case, refrigerate the jar for a couple of hours before you open is. Hold it over a bowl the first time you open it and use any juices that you catch!
