1. Tell us about your product
Our Mojo Honey Heat Sauce is an all natural product with no additives or artificial preservatives. It has the perfect balance of sweet and heat. I prefer to describe Mojo Honey Heat Sauce as a versatile well rounded condiment that can be used as a dipping sauce, a sandwich spread, or a glaze. It makes just about any food taste outstanding.

2. How did you get started making your product(s)?
Our recipe was first made by my grandmother. My father wanted to open a bbq restaurant, but didn't want to use store bought bbq sauce. My grandmother developed a tomato based sauce. My father added his spin on my grandmother's recipe. I converted my father's recipe into an all natural product.
