Can you recommend a resource (e.g., "How to" book/web site) for making/marketing/distributing your own hot sauce?
Regarding making your sauce, nearly all states and municipalities require that foods be produced in an inspected, professional kitchen, so if you’re thinking about cooking a hot sauce in your own kitchen, forget it. You should find a co-packer, or contract packer to bottle your sauce for you. We have some listed in our Industry Directory. Regarding marketing and distributing distributing, go to our home page at www.fiery-foods.com and click on "ezines". We have many articles posted on these subjects. The best book on the subject is From Kitchen to Market, available by calling 800-638-0375.
