strawberry & habanero hotsauce. 200ml
You’ll have noticed a few strawberry products scattered throughout our store over the last few months, this is due to a farming crisis experienced in September last year. Farmers were resorting to killing off fields of plants laden with fruits after demand radically dropped by over 50% due to Australia’s covid lockdown. The average cost of production for farmers is about $1.30 for a 250g punnet of strawberries, yet due to the lack of cafes and restaurants open, a supply and demand issue arose at the peak of the season, forcing supermarkets to sell the produce for as little as $1 a punnet. This is why farmers were resorting to killing off plants, they couldn’t afford pickers and packers, let alone transport of the strawberries. An SOS was sent out to Australians - “please buy as many strawberries as possible”. So despite the strawberries not being organic or grown on our land, we couldn’t resist getting involved and came up with a few recipes to expand your tastebuds and help the Aussie farmers! We hope the cause resonates with you too.
We’ve been careful to keep the ingredients list short with this one to preserve the distinct strawberry flavour. Fruity, tangy and damn hot - you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this unique hotsauce is incredibly versatile. Marinate your lamb, douse your crispy fries, top your omelette and enjoy!
