Sriracha shortage
« on: July 14, 2023, 02:34 PM »
in a classic case of cutting off your nose to spite your face, Huy Fong FOods who make the classic green cap Sriracha sauce, sued their sole supplier for $1m claiming fraud. Said supplier, Underwood Farms, countersued for $23m saying nope.

Underwood won. Cancelled the contract with Huy Fong. Oops. Now there's a global shortage of green cap Sriracha.

Huy Fong Faffed Around, and now they are Finding Out.

Better not to live in such a litigious society, IMHO.  But see also "'The pepper makes the product': inside Sriracha's spicy lawsuit".

This website claims o have the recipe for home made Sriracha.

I suppose you could make it with your favourite chillies.
