Sriracha

I have only heard of this recently and never used it. A local restaurant has started serving Sweet Lava Chili. I asked them what gave it the sweet taste and they said Honey Sriracha. Is there honey in shiracha? Or is there such a thing as honey sriracha? Or would I have to add honey to sriracha to achieve the same taste?

Carol as far as I know there's no such thing as honey Sriracha. Yes, you would have to add honey to get the same taste you're looking for. Sriracha is in a class of it's own when it comes to hot sauce and I love it mixed with other components. My barbeque sauce always includes it. Before Sriracha I never liked hot sauce at all. Good stuff..get some!

I have made a honey sriracha sauce that is essentially equal parts of each stirred together. Great on chicken wings with some sliced scallions and sesame seeds sprinkled over the top ...

Keep in mind that "sriracha" is not a brand, but a style, of hot sauce. And the ingredients are not set in stone, any more than there is only one type of chili. This restaurant might have their own concoction they're calling honey sriracha.

I went to the Huy Fong company site on line. There is one teaspoon of sugar in one ounce of sauce. But there are also 100 mgs. of sodium. Vinegar is also a product along with the peppers. There are a couple of stabilizers also which is to be expected. No artificial colors at all. What you see is what you get.

You do realize that my original comment is a quote from a popular tv commercial for Frank's ...

Although I have heard that there are other, better brands than the "Rooster", I haven't been able to find them. Anyone else heard of and/or know about other brands?

I don't know whether it's better or not because I've never tried any other brand, but Trader Joe's is very good.
