Sriracha sauce has been threatened by shortage for several years now. This year 2024 is no exception to the rule. Once again, the main American manufacturer of Sriracha sauce, Huy Fong Food, recently sent a letter to consumers explaining the difficulties it was encountering.

The problem ? The jalapeño peppers he usually uses are still “too green to continue production as it affects the color of the product”. A phenomenon linked to the great drought wave which has been affecting Mexico for some time. Because of these climatic conditions, jalapeño peppers struggle to ripen properly. The situation is not likely to improve because production will not resume before the next harvest which should only take place next September.

While waiting for a return to normal, it is possible to make your own Sriracha sauce yourself. This will also allow you to obtain a 100% natural condiment, because industrial recipes often contain additives.

It was on his Instagram account that food content creator @lerizjaune shared his advice for making his own Sriracha sauce. You will see that there is nothing very complicated.
