Seven Pot Supernova

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”.

Hey there heat eaters, it’s time for cake again.

Today, however, we’re going a little hotter and taking inspiration from my garden.

As I briefly mentioned in my post on heat and size, I’ve been growing and thoroughly enjoying some orange habaneros. They’re the least floral tasting habs I’ve come across and they seem, to me, just a little bit fruity. Not in the acidic, almost orangey way that some other habaneros do but in the way a particularly sweet and juicy bell pepper might.

Not that they really taste like bell peppers, either, mind. Those are simply the closest thing I can put my finger on right now. These chillies are honestly quite unique, even if they are still recognisably habs, and there’s something about them that just made me have to pair them with carrots in a nice hot cake.

Happy tuesday oncemore, today I’m bringing you a sauce from The Chilli Alchemist.

Their proudest work, their Smoke Potion: Magnum Opus. Which is an upgrade to their original Smoke Potion, an excellent and slightly sweet chipotle sauce to which they have added honey bourbon, mustard and smoked ghost pepper.

People asked for more heat and the alchemist delivered.
