Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

The Mexican red jalapeno crop (the only source for real sriracha production) has failed after two years of severe drought in northern Mexico. Huy Fong Foods announced in April that it will not be able to make any sriracha this summer. There are other brands that pretend to be sriracha, but they are vastly inferior. Stock up if you see it...prices set to skyrocket.

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

Dried chilies (peppers) of all kinds are available at any Mexican food shop in CH and ready to turn them into delicious sauce.

Netherlands produces fresh habaneros, jalapeņos, and others. I find them frequently at Coop. Considering the low demand in Europe, Netherlands has us covered

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

@Axa, I do make a slow-simmered sauce from guajillos and/or anchos, but it's very different from sriracha. There is no local source for dried chilis here or near our footprint in CH, and the online suppliers are either sold out or have doubled their prices. I mean, 10 euros for an 80g bag of anchos?? Yikes.

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

Too sweet anyhow. If there's a Lao Gan Ma shortage, then I'll be worried.

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

So do any of you have a really good homemade Sriracha recipe?

If the Garden Gods continue to smile upon us, we are looking at a fairly decent red jalapeņo harvest.

OH makes a wicked fermented chili sauce, Tabasco-adjacent, but is keen to extend his repertoire. So any tried-and-true sriracha recipes would be much appreciated.

Well, no such thing as cheap groceries in CH I use to buy in a shop in Josefstrasse in Zurich. I found another one in Sursee (LU).

In case of emergency, I've bought lower quality habaneros at Turkish and Indian shops. In case of catastrophe there's the red thingies that say Thai in the box and always available at coop.

Salsas are optional , you can always chop them finely and sprinkle them over food.

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

Every now and then I find some ghost peppers and Nagas at Kaufland. I freeze them and grate that what I need where I need. Just have to be carefull when handling genetalia, your own or others afterwards.

Re: Impending Sriracha Shortage!!

I grow my own... typically I have a habanero, scotch bonnet, dorset naga (just to annoy friends, I don't like the lack of taste) growing year round in hydroponic.

This summer, I've started the big turkish chillis for pickling, thai birdseye, and chiliegino... all have started fruiting
