How’s it going, everyone? It’s tuesday again and, this week, I want to revisit a concept that I first stumbled upon two months ago: The idea of hot sauce for kids.
Because, as it turns out, Hot Pods’ Mild Beast isn’t the only attempt at such a child-friendly product. Our old friend, Michael, from Price’s Spices, makes something rather similar.
This is his Junior Sensation:
A gentle blend of mango and the oh so mild trinidad perfume pepper.
A pepper that’s commonly used to fill in for the hotter scotch bonnet, which appears to be what it’s doing here, too. Given that the Junior is only a slight tweak on his award winning Haitian Sensation.
A product that’s been part of his line for rather longer.
So, with that being the case, I won’t be trying just one of the pair today. I’ll be giving both a go, starting with the original, to see how they compare. As well as giving my thoughts on each as a stand-alone sauce.
Though I doubt that they’ll be that different in flavour…
Greetings everyone, it’s time for another thursday post. But not another sauce review.
Unlike the last two thursdays, this post isn’t about a product but it is inspired by one: The Dorset Chilli Shop’s chipotle extract. Because that one little bottle changed the way I talk.
It came labelled with the ancient aztec name of it’s chilli, “Chilpōctli”, which turned out not to be pronounced the way I thought.
So today we’re looking at pronunciation. At how to say the names of your favourite chillies and why they’re pronounced the way they are.
Alright, everyone, if you’ve been paying attention to my twitter account (@spicefreakblog) then you might already know that I recently got another bottle free from The Chilli Alchemist.
This time, however, it’s not a review sample. Their latest gift came with any purchase at Reading Chilli Fest because the product in question has been discontinued. They are nolonger making their Elixir Orientem.
So, while I have been enjoying that sauce on my macaroni cheese, it’s not what I’m here to talk to you about today. No, today’s product is the new one that takes its place:
Their mango and aji amarillo chilli sauce, quite simply named “Aurum” after its golden colour.
