Siracha Vs Yellow Bird

Postby austex » Fri Aug 01, 2014 1:49 pm

I know there is a BIG consortium of Siracha lovers here. But from my now home town is a contender? Or something to else to consider; YB says refrigerate after opening... Austin-wierd-natural-granola thing...? Don't hold it against me.

Habanero is way different than a Sriracha packet. Good for a go. Do they sell small packets for backpacking/etc.?

Probably not as it's fairly new on the market. I'll look into it.

If it's like Sriracha it won't require refrigeration when opened. So you might try a tiny plastic container like one of these 1/2oz food grade LDPE screw top bottles:

It probably does need refrigeration if you look at the ingredients. No preservatives. Hence the question about single use packets. The Salt and Vinegar might stabilize it for the trek in a secondary container.

I've seen Sriracha sitting on tables at restaurants. I'm somewhat ok with that given what's added to stabilize the mix.

Still, i don't want to buy a whole bottle of it before tasting it.

From the yellowbirdsauce.com website FAQ:

"The shelf life has been lab tested to last at least one year if you’re storing it at room temperature. Yellowbird Sauce can stay fresh for much longer if kept unopened and refrigerated."

Well, that's different. I wonder if you could get yellowbird to send you a sample?

Are you going to bottle it or at least post it's recipe? A buck an oz. for yellow bird. If your sauce is that good, please tell us.

Yellow Bird appears to be in Whole Foods in Texas. Guess a test market. Might have to wander down to my "Whole Paycheck" place and see if they have it and what the markup is.

Okay guys,Since they only sell it online or in Whore Foods in TX I'll go ( I HATE the vibe/clientele in their stores; I feel out of place, even though I wear Birkenstocks) tomorrow and get a 12oz bottle. I'll send samples out to those who would like to try. Maybe 2x ziplock and in the mail? I'll let y'all know when I get it. Fair enough?

Okay y'all. I had to go to 2 'whore' foods here in Austin today and have a 12oz bottle which I'm happy to split out for samples. I'll send a 2x ziplock with some in it for taste test for a measly PM. to me. (free is good) Mind you it needs refrigeration after opening, being natural an stuff. So I'll send it early next week before I go to Boise on Thursday and then on to L.A./Bishop Mammoth the week after that. "Get it while it's hot"
