Fresh From Florida OSA Gourmet Datil pepper products won the following awards:
Fountain of Youth Datil Marinade
Fountain of Youth Datil Marinade was a winner at the World Hot Sauce Awards for the second year in a row! Made with 6 fruits: raisins, orange, mango, white grapefruit, key lime and pineapple, this distinctive marinade has won 2 International Flavor Awards as well as a World Hot Sauce Award. It can be used as a marinade for meats and vegetables, added to your ground meat for hamburgers and meatloaf, and it makes an awesome salad dressing.
Venom Datil Pepper Hot Sauce
Venom Datil Pepper Hot Sauce won both a 1st Place International Flavor Award and a 1st Place Scovie! Venom is a Louisiana style hot sauce that has double the datil peppers in our original Snake Bite hot sauce. It makes an awesome hot wing sauce when combined with a little melted butter, and compliments just about any meal.
Snake Bite Datil Pepper Hot Sauce
Snake Bite Datil Pepper Hot Sauce won again at the International Flavor Awards making it a two time winner! Our mildest hot sauce, it is loaded with delicious flavor and is perfect for those who want a hint of heat in their food. Snake Bite is our original datil pepper hot sauce, and a family favorite. This will be your go-to sauce for every day use.
Datil Zest Spice Blend
Datil Zest won in the table seasoning category at the International Flavor Awards after winning a Scovie last year! The Fresh From Florida combination of orange, lemon and lime with onion, garlic and datil peppers is especially good on fish and seafood, but is equally at home on chicken, pork, vegetables and salads. Leave it on your table and use every day to spice up your meals.
Delectable Datil Medium Salsa Seasoning
Brand New Delectable Datil Salsa Seasoning won 2 Scovie Awards this year! It comes in Mild, Medium and Smokin’ Hot, so there is a heat level for every taste. Just mix 2 Tablespoons of Delectable Datil Salsa Seasoning with one (14.5 oz) can of no salt added petite diced tomatoes (we recommend Hunts) and allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. For a less chunky salsa, just blend to the desired consistency before refrigerating. Each bottle makes approximately 18 large bowls of delicious salsa.
Just to keep things interesting and exciting, OSA Gourmet created six brand new products in 2019:
A Louisiana style hot sauce which combines Scorpion peppers, Datil peppers and lots of garlic to create a unique hot and spicy sauce that takes the heat level up several notches from our Snake Bite and Venom Datil Pepper Hot Sauces.
A deadly combination of Carolina Reaper peppers, Datil peppers, mango and garlic. Our hottest sauce yet, but with delicious flavor that comes through with every drop. Sure to be a hit with the chili-head in your life, Death Angel will fill you with flames of fire.
Made with 100% Colombian coffee, Datil peppers, onions, garlic, worcestershire powder and raw sugar, Datil Cowboy Coffee Rub adds a rich and spicy flavor profile to beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. It creates a distinctive “bark” as it caramelizes on the outside of your meat to seal in all the juices and flavor.
With just a hint of Datil pepper, Delectable Datil Mild Salsa Seasoning is perfect for those who want just a little bit of heat in their salsa. The easy way to make fresh salsa in just minutes. It’s also amazing as a dry rub on chicken, fish and pork. Just rub into your meat, let marinate for 30 minutes or more, and cook using any method you wish.
Delectable Datil Medium Salsa Seasoning is the perfect combination of dehydrated vegetables and Datil peppers. It creates a spicy salsa with a medium level of heat. Our most popular salsa seasoning so far. Just 2 Tablespoons mixed with a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes including the juices, makes a delicious and easy fresh salsa.
Delectable Datil Smokin’ Hot Salsa seasoning increases the heat with double the Datil peppers. The addition of chipotle pepper and smoked paprika give this salsa seasoning a rich, smoky flavor, and a more intense heat. If this isn’t hot enough for you, you can always add a few drops of any of our award winning hot sauces to take the heat level up as many notches as you wish.
