Delicious…and not too spicy
The “Crystal” of Hot Sauce
Great alternative to Tabasco,
“local” type establishment you visit in and around New Orleans will have a bottle of
Crystal on the table. Its not hot at all, maybe a 3 on a 10 scale, but the flavor
particularly for your basic generic Cajun spread is fantastic.
The best thing about Crystal is that its not only available at most retail outlets, but
its cheap. Locally, a 12oz. bottle can be had for $1.39. Comparatively, the 2oz. bottle
of Tabasco costs $1.59 at the local grocery so it pays to have a couple of bottles of
Crystal laying around. Its also a beautiful stunning red color that I’ve learned to
appreciate over the years of sampling all the Louisiana style sauces. Next to Chef Paul’s
Magic Pepper Sauce, this is my favorite.
Good in stews, gumbos, on fish, chicken and pork when you want all the flavor without
the burn. If you’re cooking for friends they wont mind you throwing in liberal doses
of this stuff. 5 Scovies
BTW, I’ve been a long time fan of Crystal, and when they introduced their Extra Hot Sauce
I got so excited I wrote them a letter, a week later I got a personal note back from the
president of Baumer Foods thanking me for my business and he included two coupons for any
size Crystal Hot Sauce. These guys are doing it right!
