Hot Stuff: Locally Made Hot Sauces

Ding ding, it’s time for the final round of this two-part series on locally made hot stuff (you can read the first piece on sriracha and a couple kimchees here). This installment is all about hot sauces made by SF restaurants and markets, and no, this is by no means a totally exhaustive piece--feel free to add your faves in the comments. We’re listing the sauces in order of heat, so the last one is packing some serious Scoville heat units. Fire in the hole!
