If you're worried about what the temporary shutdown of the Huy Fong Foods plant means for your Sriracha supply (and, ultimately, your existence), rest assured that you're not alone. The California Department of Health killed Christmas this year, ordering the halt of Sriracha production until the middle of January and leaving Sriracha lovers in the balance. 

At this point, there's only one thing to do: Enjoy every drop of Sriracha like it's your very last. A creative way to do that is experimenting with the additive. First We Feast came up with 16 interesting Sriracha recipes, which include Sesame Sriracha Brittle, Sriracha chicken wings and Sriracha ice cream
