Sea salt from Maine, vinegar from upstate New York, and peppers from Pennsylvania Dutch country are all that go into this lovely, vibrantly hued hot sauce from Brooklyn. (The "probiotic" in the name refers to the lactic fermentation that the peppers undergo, which lends an almost effervescent quality and helps cut the heat.) Has nice bitter chile notes balanced with tang and heat, with delicious chewy dried chile particles. ($13/8 ounces, sunnybangprivatelabel.com)
