Hot sauce is one of those universal truths that different cultures from all over the world have realised is so completely awesome. Everybody has their own preference and people use different peppers and make their hot sauce at varying levels of spice and heat but all hot sauce is good. Even this hot sauce made with giant ants and termites, I’m sure.

National Geographic shows how kumache, a hot sauce in Kumarakapay in Venezuela, is made. It’s a pretty involved process that requires boiling down yuca, throwing in peppers and mixing in red ants and termites (that you have to hunt down in the fields).
