THE COMPLETE STORY
Word around the campfire is that, about two centuries ago, there was a young woman by the name of Madame Jeanette. She was a highly desired woman in the colonial region of (French) Guyana and adored by many a men, Pirates and Landlords alike, for her fiery yet “suave” reputation. It is believed that because of these characteristics this pepper got its name and, to this day, is still bearing it for it has the same properties: hot and highly desirable.
The name and logo of Madame Jeanette Hot Sauce are both the personification of the mysterious woman whose legacy has been passed on by generations, as well as the embodiment of the pepper that has been cultivated for more than two centuries.
It is the authentic Madame Jeanette pepper that is fundamental for the brand’s all natural and carefully crafted products. Its distinctive aroma truly elevates your food and warps you straight into the Caribbean vibe of deep blue seas, white beaches and sunny skies.
"Sin Pika Ta Piká", as Madame's tattoo reads, symbolizes the profound love for spicy foods in the Caribbean culture. It's Papiamento and it translates roughly to "Life without heat is a sin”, or “a waste” for that matter. You can interpret it in various ways but it all comes down to two things: to enjoy life to the fullest and to never waste an opportunity to intensely enjoy your food. Happy cooking!

Madame Jeanette Hot Sauce™️ products, or Mme J’s products for short, are salsa’s made using only natural ingredients. Using fresh peppers harvested throughout each season each batch may slightly differ from one another. Like the vintages of high-end wines differ; it’s part of the charme.
Mme J’s products are salsa’s based on local heritage recipes. Back in the days when these salsa’s were created the cooks, often mothers, had not much to work with. During a time when agriculture did not yet offer much other than what could be locally grown, they had to be creative to be able to conserve their foods in a way that these products also provided flavor to their cooking. This is why Mme J’s products contain just a few ingredients. They are based on pure and humble ingredients like sweet onions, vinegar, sweetness, salt and one or two other products.
Mme J’s products are salsa’s based on the old production methods going back to the roots of the (is)lands natives and the age of the world’s most famous explorers and pirates. Back then there were only natural preservation techniques to ensure the safety of foodstuffs during their often long journeys without refrigeration. The right amounts of salt, sweetness and acidity are fundamental for both the flavors of Mme. J’s condiments as well as their shelf life.
Mme J’s products are meant to serve alongside a wide variety of meals without attracting too much attention to themselves, but rather add to the whole experience of your meal or snack in a balanced and sophisticated way.
Mme J’s products are all applicable to diets like veganism and vegetarianism, plus they are Halal approved.
