UNCLE YANKEYS PEPPER SAUCE
BROOKLYN NEWS 12 FEATURE
After moving to the US, from the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago, I longed for the taste of home. Pepper sauce was and still is a staple in my diet and was particularly special to me, as it brought me back to my "chow" making days. Chow is a commonly used fresh seasoning blend that you add to any fruit mix and to that mix, I would add a heaping amount of pepper that enhances the flavor of that chow.
I tried time and time again to find a pepper sauce that would match the taste of home and sadly, I was unsuccessful. I soon realized that I had no choice but to craft my own. I knew I had to get this right and make a pepper sauce that brought out the flavors of my Caribbean roots. I wanted a pepper sauce that would have the pallet bursting with great robust flavors, that could only have been found in the Caribbean,
I set out to recreate these profound memories by staying true to my culture and incorporating fresh fruits, fresh seasonings and only the BEST peppers available.
Uncle Yankey's Pepper Sauce was created in the midst of the Covid pandemic and although it was very intimidating at first, I went along with my dream of bringing this piece of home to the US and share with others. I am so glad I am able to share with others and bring them as much satisfaction as I get when enjoying the flavors that create my fruit/vegetable based pepper sauces.
I am honored to have had my business, Uncle Yankey's Pepper Sauce, featured on several social media platforms with lots of positive reviews by fellow businessmen and customers.
Today I am ecstatic to share that my business has reached the over 30 million viewers, the largest viewing population ever, when I was interviewed by News12 about challenges my business is faced with as a result of the pandemic.
I stand tall and proud after being the one chosen, among others, to highlight the issues faced by businesses at this time.
My business was started from the ground and today I can safely say, it is well-grounded. Hard work truly pays off in the end.
Special thanks to all my customers, fans and supporters for truly believing in me and my product and in supporting the Uncle Yankey's brand!
