Pepper Mash is the essential ingredient in many Cajun and Mexican inspired sauces and seasonings. In fact, Pepper Mash is the precursor to hot sauce! For years, Bruce Foods only used pepper mash for its own sauces and seasonings, but, due to high demand for high-quality Made-In- The-USA pepper mash, Bruce Foods has decided to begin selling its pepper mash to other companies interested in using Pepper Mash as an ingredient. Bruce Foods produces its pepper mash right here in the United States, and the mash is aged like a fine wine for many months before it is ready to go to market. Hot sauce manufacturers should question the quality of the pepper mash they may be importing from overseas, and hot sauce consumers should ask where the pepper mash used in their hot sauce is produced.
