This time, it’s Death at the Crimson Altar – One of Devon Chilli Man’s hottest, shown here in its more portable, karabiner-adorned, mini bottle. Perfect for those who want hot sauce on the go, a sample size before committing to the full thing or simply something small for christmas.

A Return to South Devon

Hey folks, today we have my favourite product from South Devon Chilli Farm:

2017-11-10 11.01.25

Because, while I sometimes love the really hot items, it’s not their 10/10 that most impressed me with flavour. It’s this, far milder, entry into their extreme heat range.

In fact, when I first fell in love with their Extreme Chilli Jam, it was a mere two point five. The start of its name felt like a joke. It was simply a delicious, medium jam with a difference.

But that’s changed.

Firemite – Love it or Hate it?

Hey folks, I’m going to be brutally honest with you. I don’t like the taste of today’s product.

But then, it is a well known, divisive flavour. One that people either love or hate.

I am, of course, talking about Marmite. Or, as it’s sometimes known for legal reasons, “famous yeast extract”. The signature ingredient in Fire Foods’ Firemite sauce.

Chipotle Lava Cake

Today it’s time for another weekend bonus recipe. A recipe that uses a little something I recently picked up from Dorset Chilli Shop.

poctli

Their Chilpōctli – A full flavoured chipotle extract that I’d highly recommend but that’s also so similar in heat and usage to Grim Reaper Foods’ milder extracts that it hardly warrants a full post.

It’s simply a great

6/10

Heat

item that, when used sparingly, adds a wonderful, rich, savoury, multi-layered chipotle taste to just about anything. Perfect for con carnes but also today’s dessert.

Because that’s what I’m using it for. Chocolate cake.

Copenhagen Sensation

Hey folks, today I have something slightly special for you.

It’s a weekend bonus recipe, like I used to do, only rather more refined. It’s a rich and creamy linguine that’s a lot like a korma in some respects but, instead of heavily spiced it’s highly spicy, fairly fruity and just a little bit bright and floral.

Sounds good, right? Well, there’s a catch.

This special dish was a spur of the moment creation thought up when a rare chilli I’d long been after wound up falling into my clutches fresh and in dire need of use. It uses the bhut jolokia orange copenhagen chilli.

Birthday Blood

Surprise! It’s a sauce review on a thursday!

Why? Because it’s my birthday.

A year ago today, I tried what is probably the hottest extract-based sauce in the world and, because I really don’t know what’s good for me, I figured I’d make a tradition out of it.

I bring you Chilli Pepper Pete’s Dragon’s Blood.

Not one of the sauces that have gained the name in later years but the original. The legend. The old extract sauce I still hear tales about to this day.

A New World’s Hottest?

So here’s something I’m sure you’ve all seen by now:

dragon’s breath chilli, as seen in the Daily Mirror

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.
