Lao Gan Ma Chili Crisp Sauce
China’s most popular hot sauce is made with peanuts, and it’s good in or on everything, especially noodle soups and dumplings. The name means “Old Godmother,” in case you were wondering. $8 on amazon.com.
Pirate’s Lantern Pepper Sauce
There’s mustard, horseradish, and Scotch Bonnet peppers in this delicious Barbados-style pepper sauce made in — where else? — Brooklyn. But rum might be the key ingredient. $9.95 on amazon.com.
Adoboloco Pineapple Hot Sauce

ingredients: habaneros, garlic, apple-cider vinegar, sea salt, and pineapple. Perfect with anything porky. $9 at Court Street Grocers, 485 Court St., nr. Nelson St., Carroll Gardens; 718-722-7229.
