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.
Happy christmas eve, everyone, who wants chocolate?
This month I had chance to borrow a little bottle of extract off a friend but, like the Chilpōctli that we saw recently, it’s not a super hot one. In fact, it’s another from Grim Reaper Foods’ lineup, the same strength as their Raging Goblin.
Their chipotle and orange “Sepulchre”.
Perfect for spicing up milk chocolate truffles.
Happy tuesday again people, it’s time for another little shot of Dragon’s Blood. But, instead of showing you my free sample jar, here’s what you’d get if you actually purchased today’s product:
A black and golden brown, scale patterned bottle that both strongly resembles the others in its line and uses the two main colours associated with its sauce type.
Feel like something fruity, my fellow fiery food fans? It certainly seems like I do lately.
To get my fix, I’m taking a look at another freebie from one of the most heavy fruit users I know. Daddy Cool’s.
But compared to other fruit-based sauces, this one’s different. It’s brown. Or, as he and his northern friends call it, “Broon”.
That’s right folks, we’re looking at a chilli brown sauce!
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, we’re looking at the Screaming Chimp again.
This sample’s of another smokey sauce, meant to combine the heat of their Stinger with the beautiful flavour of the last one we looked at, the Vic’s Ol’ Smokey.
Hey folks, last month we looked at a delicious new product that I got at Reading Chilli Festival but this month I have something even newer for you.
This week’s product comes to you from Burning Desire Foods, is a little more out there than a sauce and was actually released on the day of the event. What I have for you is their chipotle syrup:
Hey everyone, this week it’s recipe week and I’d like to talk to you about one of my favourite curries.
The humble korma, however, doesn’t have the best of reputations, being considered both too mild and too desert-like to be called a “proper curry” by many.
It’s the sweet, rich, creamy, coconut-heavy and utterly chilli free dish used to introduce people to the spices of indian cuisine but, in my opinion, it’s a little more than that.
Made well, the almond, coconut and dairy base of this dish gives it the unique, rich, mild and milky flavour you might expect, ideal to be built upon with other things, such as its often quite complex spice palette. In fact, it’s a perfect carrier for these spices because, as with chilli, their flavours are mostly oil based, allowing them to be absorbed into the milk fats quite easily to spread throughout the meal.
But, depending on where you look, you’ll see many variations on the korma, some of which have rather different ideas on what flavours should permeate its thick, underlying sauce.
Another tuesday, time for another spicy sauce review but, with my focus back on my weird and interesting finds once more, it’s time we had a look at a rather unusual barbecue sauce.
One from the Hot Plot Chilli Co. that claims to be quite hot.
Greetings everyone, today we’re looking at something a little less spicy.
This time we’re looking at one of Tabasco’s more obscure products. Something that’s been sitting in my fridge for a while not because I don’t like it but because it doesn’t go with most of the food I eat and didn’t really fit my review schedule earlier on.
But, instead of just telling you what it is, why not have a proper look at it?
