Turn up the heat — 07/28/22

In celebration of the inaugural New England Hot Sauce Festival, happening at Hampton’s Smuttynose Brewing Co. this Saturday, July 30, we took a deep dive into the growing culture of New Hampshire’s craft hot sauce makers. Find out how they uniquely balance heat and flavor to concoct their spicy creations, and learn where you can grab bottles of them locally. We also take a look at various peppers ranked on the Scoville Scale and turn up the heat with some fun recipes and cooking ideas.

Also on the cover Wine columnist Fred Matuszewski takes a look at some light, white wines perfect for summer (page 32). Find live music every day of the week in our Music This Week listing (starts on page 38). Katelyn Sahagian takes a look at the long-awaited return of the Canterbury Fair, a 60-plus-year small town tradition (page 14).
