UML Partners with Lowell-Based Company for Special Edition Hot Sauce

Whether sprinkled on top of a bagel with cream cheese or mixed with honey and soy sauce to make a marinade for salmon, hot sauce can give any dish a spicy kick. Lowell-based Craic Sauce has been producing locally sourced hot sauce since 2017 and most recently teamed up with UMass Lowell’s Rist Institute for Sustainability and Energy to grow peppers on campus for a UMass Lowell edition of their Mill City Red hot sauce. The process, which is outlined below, took nearly one year to complete and involved the help of UML students.
