MarketBasket: Habañeros in the hood; a festive mug
Habañeros in the hood
At Greensgrow Community Kitchen in Kensington, fall is hot-sauce season. Habañeros are seeded, de-ribbed, and stored in brine in the summer, then tempered with carrots and onions for a slightly milder heat. Buy the popular Flaming Habañero sauce alone or as part of a limited-edition Hot Sauce Trio (with Cayenne and Island-Style Peach, which incorporates local peaches and jerk spices) in a $15 holiday gift pack.
