You don't have to buy hot sauce anymore! Learn how to utilize dried peppers in the winter and fresh peppers in the summer to make your own refrigerator hot sauce at home. We'll start by sharing our recipe for hot sauce: that coriander-laced paste so many customers have pined for since we first put it on the counter at the Clover MIT truck. Then we'll allow you to experiment, varying liquid and peppers to create your own sauce. Includes a bottle of hot sauce to take home, access to recipes, and a meal at Clover.
