Happy tuesday again people, it’s time for us to return to wales and experience a second sauce from Chilli of the Valley. One with the same pineapple and coconut flavours that ruined Saucey Lady’s Fireman’s Watch for me but one that gives them the centre stage, instead of pairing them badly with other, more savoury fruit.
This one is their Calypso – A sauce designed to mimic the classic piña colada cocktail’s flavours, with pineapple, coconut and rum.
And this time, I see no reason why they won’t work.
To be truly sure, though, I’m going to have to put this sauce to the test.
Greetings again everybody. Last week I showed you a hotter, more sophisticated and way more citrusy take on habanero Tabasco. An item that prided itself on achieving a complexity of flavour with one of the simplest ingredients lists that I’ve ever laid eyes upon.
A simple, familiar, louisiana-style sauce, properly aged and fermented to get the most out of its peppers.
Today, we’re taking that same concept and applying it to a chilli that I’ve never seen used before – Green cayenne.
We’re looking at The General’s Hot Sauce and their Marine Green, complete with a pretty stunning and weighty, grenade-shaped bottle:
A custom container that I’m sure has sold many a sauce of theirs, state side, but has also upped the costs involved quite substantially. I don’t normally talk about price but this particular product is going for £12.99, after import, from Hot-Headz and, at that price, you’re gonna want to be sure that you’re getting your money’s worth.
So, unless you’re prepared to drop double digits on a(n admittedly stellar-looking) bottle alone, I strongly suggest that you read on to find out what makes this week’s item special.
It’s thursday again, fiery food fans, and it’s a weird one.
Once again, I’m bringing you a sauce review off schedule. And no, it’s not for jokey reasons like last time.
Noone’s said that this sauce or its peppers are inedible. It’s just not available in the UK.
It’s an australian sauce that focuses on a unique heat source – A distant relative of black pepper known as the tasmanian mountain pepper.
Or, in some cases, the diemen pepper berry, the name from which today’s company get theirs.
So we’re a over a week into the new year now and it’s time to say goodbye to our holiday specials but, before we do, how about another drink or two to celebrate the fact that we’re still going?
These sparkling beverages are a little something special from my trip to Edible Ornamentals’ chilli farm at the end of last year. A topic that I’ll be coming back to soon enough.
For now, though, It’s these Nix and Kix drinks that we’re looking at. A brand named for their lack of any artificial ingredients and their little cayenne kick.
Hello again everyone, I’m bringing my recipe forward a couple weeks this time to celebrate national curry week. Or is it national chocolate week?
God knows why we’re having both at once this year but I’ve had vague plans for chocolate curry for a long while so it’s about time that they saw metaphorical print.
It’s time I made a chocolate madras.
Hello again everyone, if you like hot sauce and you’re on the internet, you may well already know what I’m going to talk about today.
Described as “The show with hot questions and even hotter wings.”, this unusually high production youtube series is becoming very popular.
Hey everyone, welcome to Sticky Sisters, a new fast food joint in the middle of my home town. Round the back of leeds’ Merrion Centre, just by their First Direct Arena, if you feel like visiting for real.
Because we can’t all eat fancy food all the time. Sometimes we just want chicken wings.
Happy tuesday everyone, it’s time we took another look at Cowley’s Fine Foods.
Hello again everyone, it’s time for something silly.
More specifically, this crazy little movie tie-in:
