This is my first hot sauce inspired by the way the polish brine pickle cucumbers (Ogórki Małosolne).

This sauce is the same as 01 LOVE & NAPALM  with dried and smoked Mexican Chipotle Mora peppers added. Chipotle are smoked Jalapeño peppers that adds a thick smoky flavor.

The name is taken from the third chapter of a book by Georges Bataille called “The Tears of Eros”. The book deals with eroticism in art. The book can be (partly) read on google books. In this context also the french film Martyrs is interesting to watch.

Ingredients: Adjoema & Chipotle Peppers, Bell Peppers, Garlic, Black Pepper, Vinegar and Atlantic Sea salt.

Unlike 01 and 02 the ingredients of this sauce are mash fermented, rather than brine fermented. This sauce features loads of tasty garlic!

The film is Christensen vision of a pseudo documentary about witchcraft comparing it to hysteria of women, in which he beautifully dramatizes scenes from wood cuts of the middle ages.
