Why We Use
“The Little Red Stick”

The unique flavor of our Original Red Sauce is highly dependent on our peppers being picked at a certain stage of ripeness – when they turn a deep red color.

That’s why, during the pepper harvest, we depend on le petit bâton rouge (the little red stick). It’s painted the same shade as a perfectly ripe pepper, and before we pick each pepper, we make sure it matches the stick’s color. It’s part of what makes our sauce “handcrafted”; we’ve used this method for generations and it continues to ensure an incredible consistency in heat and flavor.
