Texas Pete Hot Sauce is made from specially grown, select red cayenne peppers that are aged for two years. The aging process is important as it softens the skin and enhances the extraction of the natural capsicum from the pepper. The seeds and skin are removed and processed into a pure natural pulp. The pulp is placed in a vacuum tank where all impurities are removed. Then, the pure natural pepper pulp is specially blended with the rest of the ingredients under the watchful eye of quality assurance technicians.
