Duck Sauce with a Kick
You knew that a lot of waterfowlers have saved every duck stamp they've glued to their licenses and that there's even a collectors' trade in old duck stamps and related art and objects. But did you know that some people collect hot sauce? Well, now you can have-or give-both hot sauce and duck stamp art with one flask of Hot Sauce Harry's 2004 Duck Stamp Hot Sauce.
This is the third year of Harry's series of duck stamp special editions, with the licensing fees helping the US Fish and Wildlife Service's migratory bird conservation fund. This year's label-and federal duck stamp-features snow geese. A collection of all three duck stamp editions can be purchased through the company.
The sauce is a combination of habanero peppers offset by the sweetness of carrots and onions and made fluid by vinegar with garlic and lime juice. It's good, and it has flavor that lingers even after the tingling heat builds. Surely a smart addition to the camp spice rack, so the art and the sauce can both be appreciated with a pre-dawn plate of eggs.
