Red Hot Velvet Rings

Hey fiery food fans. Today’s recipe has a bit of a misleading title.

I’m calling this post “Red Hot Velvet Rings” but the end result isn’t stunningly hot. Or even red in appearance.

What it is is a hotter, more savoury take on red velvet onion rings – An old craze that I still find baffling.

But just because coating onion rings in something as sweet as actual cake batter seems strange to me doesn’t stop the thought of a smooth, milky, fluffy, cake-like texture surrounding a ring with a little bit of bite left from making me salivate.

The feel of cake-battered onion rings was so tempting I just had to try it and, with the shade produced by deep frying red food colouring already making the originals look spicy, I knew it had to be a blog recipe.

So I went out and bought myself some sriracha to experiment.

Unleash the Demons

It’s thursday again, fiery food fans, and it’s a weird one.

Once again, I’m bringing you a sauce review off schedule. And no, it’s not for jokey reasons like last time.

Noone’s said that this sauce or its peppers are inedible. It’s just not available in the UK.

It’s an australian sauce that focuses on a unique heat source – A distant relative of black pepper known as the tasmanian mountain pepper.

Or, in some cases, the diemen pepper berry, the name from which today’s company get theirs.

Red Jalapeño

Another Mahi Fine Foods sauce this month, everyone, and it isn’t really listed as mild, medium or hot. Instead, this one gets a number for its heat, a rather hard to interpret “2”.

Yet its name implies it’ll at least put a little more focus on its peppers.

Jalapeños that have ripened fully to red. Could the “Red Jala” really use anything else?

The Dragon’s Smoke

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:

DB BBQ (1)-500x500

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.

Jalapeño Jerky

Hello again heat eaters, today I intend to bring you a couple of things from Cowley’s Fine Foods but, for starters, let’s just look at their mild and flavourful Sweet Potato and Jalapeño Jerky.

It’s an interesting combination of flavours that isn’t clarified at all by its packaging.
