Hot Sauce Review: Cry Baby Craigs

Cry Baby Craigshas been in my Top 3 Favorite Hot Saucesfor at least the past 5 years. I was introduced to this sauce back in the day at Sea Salt Eatery, the famous fish shack by Minnehaha Falls. As soon as I tried this sauce on my fish tacos, I was hooked!After that initial taste, I scoured the Twin Cities trying to find a bottle that would be mine and mine alone! Ok, scour is being a little dramatic, they had it at some of our local markets but it was in limited supply so not always in stock.

Now, it is widely available in Twin Cities grocery stores and online. And for good reason! This sauce boasts a Pickled Habanero and garlic flavor. The pickled factor makes it stand out in flavor from more traditional hot sauces which are typically cooked or smoked. Pickling the habbys gives it a bit more of an acidic flavor more reminiscent of a Louisiana Style sauce but the garlic and cumin flavors help deepen the sauce and, in my humble opinion, make the sauce more versatile. CBC rounds out the flavor more without adding sweetness. And, with a manageable heat profile, it is a greatHOTsauce for those that cant handle as much spice, and a greatMODERATEspice for those who can punish themselves with hotter sauces. I like to use the catchphrase from adifferent sauce when I refer to CBC I put that shit on everything! Tacos- CBC. Eggs- CBC. Chili- CBC. Curry- CBC. Homemade glazes and BBQ sauces- a splash of CBC. The list goes on and on.

Cry Baby Craigs Hot Sauces

Cry Baby Craig

Minnesotas Makers are a diverse and exciting group. From our historical past in milling and the creation of a grain exchange to the early days of making beer and liquor throughout the years of prohibition we have been innovators and product engineers. The makers of today are engineering new apple varieties, Minnesota made hops, and a range of products.

For my picks, I am going to highlight each week a few of my favorite makers that you will find in your local grocery store, Co-op, or on the table at your favorite Minnesota restaurant.

Cry Baby Craigs Pickled and Habanero Hot Sauce

Necessity was the mother of invention when local chef and Minnesota Maker Craig Kaiser received a shipment of habaneros instead of jalapenos in his restaurant produce order. He didnt know what to do with the stack of Habaneros immediately, so he pickled them for later. When he got back to the pickled peppers, he made hot sauce and served it to his staff for family meal. The result was a refreshing, tart, bright, orange hot sauce with a hint of garlic that was a hit. You will find Cry Baby Craigs hot sauce in place of many of the national hot sauce brands at local restaurants, and chefs are using it in their recipes due to its distinctive flavor and forward heat from the pickling of the peppers.

Cry Baby Craigs Habanero And Garlic Hot Sauce Review

Time once more for another hot sauce review, everyone. Welcome back. I am starting to look at a few sauces that I have just a single bottle from the various companies. Ive managed to pick up a few of these, many of them thanks to my subscription from Fuego Box. One such is the sauce that Ive got on order for you today. Its Cry Baby Craigs Habanero & Garlic Hot Sauce. Lets get to it.

So, I have high hopes for this sauce. Habaneros are my favorite of the hot peppers. And garlic is my favorite additional flavor. So, on paper, this should be exactly up my alley. Lets see if it all pans out for me .

Looking at the ingredients, its a pretty short list. We start out with distilled vinegar, and then move on to habaneros. Pretty standard start. We continue with water, sugar, garlic, salt, spices, pepper, and xanthan gum. So yeah. Its very straightforward. No strange fruits. No exotic spices . No other out-there add-ons. This is about as cut-down as you can get before you get to something like Franks.

Opening up the bottle, I get the scent of vinegar along with the scent of the peppers. Its a bit more vinegar scent than Id really prefer, but its not really overpowering. And remember that I just really dont like the scent and flavor of vinegar. All my favorite sauces manage to hide it with the other flavors in the sauce. I can also smell the garlic in there. Thats certainly a good sign.

Craig Kaiser With Hot

Craig Kaiser has a hot-sauce empire going with Cry Baby Craigsand a tracksuit to match.

Before Craig Kaiser tells the origin story of his astonishingly successful hot sauce, Cry Baby Craigs, he makes a request. I dont want to put anything in this story that just makes my mom cry, he tells me over the phone while hes driving back to the Twin Cities from the far south metro, where hes been manufacturing his hot sauce lately. My mom and I have two different theories, Kaiser says. Hers is a little more sad.

Well get to those competing versions in a moment. First, heres why Cry Baby Craigs likely sounds familiar. Menu watchers have spotted Cry Baby Craigs all over town: at Handsome Hog , at Gray Duck Tavern , and Northeast Social . It shows up with burgers or eggs at practically every see-and-be-seen eatery: at Tilia, at Nighthawks, at Bulls Horn, at Rise Bagel Co.

Since Craig Kaiser invented it in 2012, while working as a sous-chef at dear departed Cafe Maude, in far southwest Minneapolis, sales of the bright orange hot sauce have grown more than 40 percent a year. Today, its offered in some 700 locations and distributed by Sysco and Hy-Vee, mega players in the food industry. They sell it by the gallon at my gas station in south Minneapolis , perhaps in case neighborhood chefs run out in the dark of night. Its a Twin Cities restaurant-culture phenomenon.
