Jailhouse Fire Hot Sauce

pepper.jpg Itching for a hobby as they wait out their prison terms, a group of inmates from Brandon, Florida have turned horticulturists. The group of convicts grow their own peppers and are perfecting a hot sauce concoction that they hope to market to consumers.

It can be difficult to add a little spice to your life when you’re in jail, where everything’s the same, day in and day out. But inmates at the Hillsborough County jail are trying. The inmates had been growing hot peppers as part of a horticulture program at the jail for about a year when one of them made a suggestion to make it into a sauce Allen Boatman, the horticulture program’s director, agreed it would be a good idea, and residents of the Falkenburg Road Jail in Brandon are now the proud makers of Jailhouse Fire hot sauce.
