Follow Your Fart is the hot sauce we hope everyone is able to try. This Serrano Pepper hot sauce (~4x hotter than a jalapeño), is an approachable heat level with a garlic punch and a vinegar zip that will leave you wondering what foods it WON’T pair well with. Some folks say this is spicier than our #3 Sweet Habanero, but we’ll let you be the judge on that.
Why the 2?
Plenty of reasons. Part of it is due to the heat being 2/7. Part of it is because it’s the second recipe we ever made in a large quantity. Part of it is because we took second place in our first-ever competition at the Columbus Fiery Foods Festival in 2019. Plus, how do you have a name like Fartley Farms and not have your first sauce be related to number two? Let’s get real.

Find it here: www.fartleyfarms.com Title: Serrano Garlic Hot Sauce Company: Fartley Farms Ingredients: Chile Peppers (Serrano, Bell Peppers), Distilled Vinegar, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper Powder, Salt, Spice Smell: The moment my nostrils hit the bottle; I was in Garlic Pepper Heaven. Honestly, I am a huge fan of garlic and an even bigger fan when it comes to garlic-based hot sauces and the aroma of this sauce is executed perfectly for such a short ingredient list. The first word that comes to mind is fresh. The combination of the bright, earthy, vegetal aromas of the Serrano and Bell Peppers combined with the Garlicky odor makes my mouth water. Following directly behind these flavors you can begin to pick up the zippiness from the Vinegar which does a great job at complementing these flavors along with some slight hints of Cayenne in the background and some added spice. 🌶 . Pour: This sauce has a nice consistency because it pours out of the bottle decently easy, but there are still chunks throughout the sauce. There are some pepper seeds in this sauce, which to some people is positive or a negative. 🔥 . Taste: This sauce has such a straightforward ingredient list, but it is executed fantastically. The moment the sauce hits you, you get an upfront Serrano pepper flavor which is like a jalapeno which is very fresh, bright, vegetal, earthy, and maybe slightly smokey. The Bell Peppers also bring forward a vegetal pepper flavor that compliments the Serrano peppers without being too overbearing. The Garlic really shines in this sauce and follows you from the start of the flavor journey all the way to the end. The Vinegar gives you a nice tangy zip as you swallow the sauce while not being too vinegary. I love that there is only a little bit of salt in this sauce, so it's not overly salty either which really lets the fresh flavors pop. Overall, this is a fantastic table sauce that could be used on anything you would typically use hot sauce on. I would give this sauce a 9/10 on flavor. 🌶 . Heat: I would give this sauce a 3/10 on heat, as it could be enjoyed by everyone, but gives you a nice mild burn that lingers for a while. 🔥 . #hotsauce #hotsauces
“Love the garlic on the nose as soon as you open it – I feel like I don’t see too many red sauces that are heavy garlic. Although I might be biased because I’m a big fan of garlic in general. I’m also not sure I’ve had serrano in a hot sauce like that either, the flavor of the pepper comes through on first bite right away. Finishes sweet and vinegary which honestly makes me want to eat all of it at once, in the same way salt and vinegar chips make me eat the whole bag.” – Jonathan H.
“I personally love this hot sauce. I think it’s amazing on tacos and goes well with taco related food items. Flavor-wise, it’s reallllllly good. I love the garlic and it’s got just enough heat. It probably doesn’t need more salt, but I love salt. Sorry I am so salty…” – Patrick S.
“Honestly, I’d be really digging to critique this one. It’s got great flavor – punches the garlic in a great way, without covering other flavors entirely (like a garlic reaper sauce I have at home), the consistency is good – I like the slightly thinner viscosity on this one.” – Ben D.
