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.
Hey again, folks. Last week we looked at a green sauce made mostly out of fruit and the two weeks before that we looked at fruity red chilli blends so, this time, to change things up a bit, we’re looking at something fruit-free and yellow.
Or at least, free from any non-pepper fruit:
Today’s item is Hot-Headz’ Naga Mustard sauce from their “Who Dares Burns” range – A superhot take on a classic mustard and chilli sauce. Which is a style I don’t feel like I feature nearly often enough.
Hey everyone, it’s october. And you know what’s special about october?
It’s the month with halloween in it.
And yes, I know, halloween’s still almost a month away but what use is a holiday product review if it goes up on the holiday? I’m doing this early so that you have time to track down the items involved, should you feel the need.
Or maybe just to warn you what’s in store if you knock on my door this year.
Either way, I’m talking about gummy bears.
Three different brands and four or five different products, for a full comparison of every sort I’ve seen.
Howdy folks, today we’re going a little further afield for a less mainstream american sauce, imported and sold in the UK by Hotheadz.
Marie Sharp’s, the company who actually make the sauce, are a well respected company from humble family origins, who specialise exclusively habanero. They have an entire range of heats, mild to nearly ghost level, all using their one signature chilli.
And maybe a little bit of extract in the hottest ones.
But what I’m trying this week isn’t about the heat itself but about the kind of unique flavour few producers are willing to touch. Hot green chillies.
Happy tuesday spice lovers and welcome back to my weekly reviews.
Today, we have another bargain find, this time actually from a UK producer.
Hot-Headz’ Hardcore Roasted Jalapeño.
Happy solstice spice lovers, for you and not for me. Why? Because today I have to try this:
You’ve been seeing a few things from the Chilli Pepper Company recently and this is why. Some time ago, I tried the original version of Hell… Unleashed and was not exactly impressed. They sent me a review box in the hopes that they could convince me give their second batch a go.
