Hey there chilli lovers, it’s the weekend again and, this week, I feel like paying a little tribute to one of my fellow bloggers.
Not a pure food blogger this time, like I’ve Got Cake’s Dana (who inspired my superhot brownie recipe), but one who I’m a big fan of all the same. One who’s stunning pictures of the australian landscape feed my love of bright colours through winter just as much as their recipes make me hungry throughout the rest of the year.
Do be warned before I begin, though: This isn’t for the faint of heart or tongue. Today’s recipe uses one of the world’s hottest chillies and winds up reaching a crazy
that comes close to double the strength of my own hottest past recipes, let alone what restaurants will typically serve. And it’s not like you’ll just be putting a little bit on your meal like with a sauce, either.
If you’re sure you know what you’re getting into, feel free to click on through to the recipe but don’t say I didn’t warn you. For even most chilli fans, ELE’s original recipe will likely be more suitable. My chocolate bark really is just for the select few who eat things unreasonably hot.
Today, we’re taking another look at my Hot Ones-style line up because it’s been a whole year. Time in which the range of sauces I can pull from has changed quite dramatically. Yet my love for the show has not.
You can read all about that and see what the old line up was in last year’s post but, this time, we’re focusing solely on the sauces. So read on for what new ones I’ve chosen, which old ones have stayed and why I’ve made the decisions that I have.
Happy thursday folks, we’re getting close to christmas and this is a bit later than I’d originally hoped to have it but here’s the dragon’s breath:
And yes, it’s in a sauce.
In fact, it’s a sauce you’ve already seen. It’s an updated version of The Chilli Pepper Company’s earlier, less grammatically correct “Dragons Breath”.
Whether this change is just to avoid confusion or because they seriously believe in the strain, I couldn’t say but I appreciate it. It keeps the sauce from having the name of a chilli it doesn’t contain and, more excitingly, it gives me a way to check the pepper out.
I never did manage to get a sample from either of the two people who claimed to have developed it but, while I’m still very sceptical of the dragon’s breath chilli, I’m definitely curious. I’m definitely happy to have my hands on it.
And, as the first superhot said to be literally inedible, I feel I have a duty to prove its growers wrong.
So here’s something I’m sure you’ve all seen by now:
Chilli Bob’s Farm’s and Tom Smith’s Plants’ dragon’s breath chilli. A tree-like plant that produces some small but supposedly extremely hot peppers with an average scoville rating of almost two and a half million.
Compared to the average heat of the current record holder, the carolina reaper (between 1.4 and 1.57 million, depending on when you take the record from), this is a massive step up. It even beats out the reaper’s 2.2 million peak.
Such a stunning heat difference that it has been all over the news and in social media feeds across the globe.
Attention: This is an old post reviewing a product which has since received significant updates. It will remain on my site, for posterity, but does not reflect the new recipe. For up to date information, please refer to this post, instead.
Another tuesday, another sauce review, welcome back to my Chilli Pepper Company month.
Today I have for you their Dragons Breath, missing apostrophe and all. It too claims to be a “very hot” sauce but we’ll soon see if it compares to the amazing Ball Breaker.
First off though, the packaging. Let’s get a good look at that.
