Pepper Paste

Pure pepper flavor in a semi-solid form.

Our pungent Pepper Paste is prepared by combining TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce and TABASCO® brand Pepper Seeds. Both are derived from aged red peppers, which are fermented with salt for up to three years and mixed with high-quality vinegar. The resulting paste has the consistency of tomato paste and offers a more concentrated pepper flavor with a lower vinegar ratio.
