Happy tuesday again, everybody, and welcome back to another Gingerbeard review.
This time, we’re taking a look at their Ale and Chilli Piccalilli – A product type that I’ve never featured before and one that they make in collaboration with Electric Bear Brewing Co.
Both company logos adorn the label of this jar, along with a bunch of chillies dancing to the boom box from Electric Bear’s Werrrd ale, but that’s about all the visual indication we get of what goes into it.
Unlike on their bloody mary salsa, Gingerbeard do a pretty poor job of conveying what today’s product is, without words, despite the busier design. I’m not too impressed with its outside but let’s see what their picalilli is like within, shall we?
It’s the last weekend of the month again, folks, and I’m sure you know what that means by now. It’s recipe time.
This february’s main dish, however, isn’t entirely my own. It’s an adaptation of one of Sorted Food’s latest and, if you haven’t heard of them, I strongly suggest that you check out their 📽️ baked potato recipe video 📽️ before continuing.
They’re a great fun channel, fully focussed on food, with the knowledge of professional chefs but far more of a down to earth approach. I’ve been hooked on them for months.
Yet, for the first time today, I feel like I’m qualified to take on one of their recipes and give my own twist. Maybe even improve it. Because real mexican food has been passed down to me, through the generations, from real mexican chefs. And chillies, well, they’re kind of my thing.
So, for this month’s recipe, I’m taking their sweet potato stuffed with refried beans and giving it what they would call a “level up”!
Hey folks, it’s nearly valentines day so, this week, I’m going for a themed review of Love Pickle.
It’s a simple brand with a single family recipe, based on indian classics and tweaked to hit five different heat levels – Everything from mild to super hot, if their labels are to be believed.
There are a couple of offshoot brands as well, in the form of Love Chilli and Love Chutney but, for now, I’m going to stick with the slightly questionably named original range and bring you its green and blue label variants.
The mildest and hottest that they have to offer.
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.
Hello again everyone and welcome to the third of my Burning Desire Foods reviews. Reviews of a brand I found ahead of time and merely met up with in person at Reading.
Today’s, however, is a little bit special because it’s actually a request. One that came to me from an online card gaming buddy under the username MeowMeowCat. Or, as he’s more recently started calling himself, “Solaris”.
When I let slip that I was looking at a sauce with his new name on it, he absolutely had to know how hot he was.
Me, though, I’m more interested in the flavour. The blend of honey, mustard, 7-pot/pod peppers and lime.
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.
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.
Welcome back, spice lovers, today we’ll be looking at the second of my freebies from Daddy Cool’s. His indian inspired Okra and Garlic Pickle.
A mild but flavourful addition to his range, intended to go alongside a good curry.
Greetings everyone and welcome to the first of my Daddy Cool’s reviews.
Today we have the hottest of the sauces I chose from him, the medium heat Fatalii Attraction.
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.
