Episode Info:

One of the most famous condiments in the world celebrated its 150th birthday last year: Tabasco. The famous hot pepper sauce was invented in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny on Avery Island, Louisiana. Tabasco is still made there today, and the company is still run by McIlhenny's descendants. Visitors can tour the Tabasco museum and factory, dine on Cajun food and even have a bloody mary (spiked with Tabasco, of course). Avery Island is also home to Jungle Gardens, a nature preserve that tells the story of how McIlhenny's son helped save snowy egrets from being wiped out in the U.S.
