Swazi Fire Chilli Sauce Review – Back in November last year I reviewed a lovely product that was made by the ladies of the “Eswatini Kitchen” and brought to these shores by a company known as “Just trading Scotland”, it was a “Kumquat Atchar” and most unlike any fruit based chutney/pickle I had tasted before, so now I come to one of their other products which is a cooking sauce by the looks of it, but to get its full merit and give it a fair review I will be trying it straight from the jar!!

Top 10 UK Chilli Web Sites??—??January 2010 – The top 8 seem to be well settled this month, with no changes in position and most have moved up the Alexa rankings.

Marie Sharps Grapefruit Pulp Habanero Pepper Sauce – In 1980, in Belize, Central America, Marie Sharp came up with some recipes for sauces, jams, and jellies while experimenting with fresh Habanero peppers, vegetables, and fruits from her farm.

The Gringley Tingley Review – On opening I recommend you smell this sauce before tasting, the smell is so appealing, an intense aroma of freshly cooked ripe tomatoes, it’s not that overly sweet smell from ketchup, but is much much more grown up and interesting after three of four good sniffs from the bottle, I am ready to taste.

Dartmoor Chilli Farm – Organic and Holistic Chillies – Dartmoor chilli farm established in 2007 is located on the outskirts of Ashburton within the beautiful Dartmoor National Park.

Scott Roberts?—?Chilli Letter from America #2 – The U.S. has suffered an economic downturn during the past two years,but things are looking up for some of American sauce makers. Just one example, Michael Greening of Mike & Diane’s Gourmet Kitchens (makers of Ring of Fire Hot Sauces) said that his sales as of 11 January had already surpassed his entire January sales last year. Here’s hoping the the remainder of the year will see similarly rising sales and aggressive growth for the entire industry.

The Fire Foods Amateur Scovile Awards 2010 – This years Amateur Scovile Awards will take place on the 16th October at the same venue as last year the “Old Courthouse” pub in Cove, Farnborough, Hampshire.

The Chilli Factory Numbit Nibble

The Chilli Factory Numbit Nibble

The Chilli Factory – Numbat Nibble Mild Chilli Satay Sauce – I love peanut butter; in fact for me peanut butter is a bit like bacon, in that almost all things taste better with bacon. I can remember the first time I had Chicken Satay, it was a revelation in taste, This may seem strange now, but it is not that long ago that anything but salted peanuts in a bag and even peanut butter was unheard of in the normal family house in the UK (Note : I was born in the 1960’s).

Hot-Headz Nihil Timendum Est (fear nothing) Hotsauce Review – “Nihil Timendum Est (fear nothing) Hotsauce” is made form Piri-piri or Peri-peri as some call it, this is just another name for the african birdseye chilli’s that are small and red and kind of bullet shaped, they are reasonably hot and for this reason I expected this sauce to be quite spicy! The bottle is one of the same used across most of “Hot-Headz” own range and are very similar to the US starndard 148ml hotsauce bottles.

Home Made Red Chilli Jelly – This Red Chilli Jelly uses no colouring or added pectin, all the pectin coming from the Granny Smiths Apples and Cranberries.

Chilli Variety – Chipotle (Smoked Red Jalapeños) – It is an odd thing, but everyone seems to want green Jalapeños chillies, but at the end of the growing season they are starting to turn red before they can be picked and sold, at this point there market value as a fresh product is about as low as it gets.

The Chilli Pepper Company – 10 Minute Burn Review – Okay where to start? This is my first video review since the new year started and OMFG I could’nt have started it with a bigger bang if i’d have tried! This sauce today comes from our good friends at the “Chilli pepper company” and I have to say this is EASILY the hottest sauce they sell and its a f*****g corker!! Ged developed this sauce to compete in the ever growing “Ultra-death-killya-stupidly-over-the-fookin-top” hotsauce category and I have to say it holds its own rather well, but enough of this, lets crack on eh?

Fresh Fruit Salsa (Could be part of your 5 a day) – The excesses of Christmas are over, it is now time to be good and healthy, this Salsa, is packed with fresh fruit and flavour.

Nitro Naga Biohazard Edition Review – The sauce i’m reviewing today comes from a guy known as the “Chillichutneyman” and after reviewing a few of his products here on the Chilefoundry i doubt he needs any introduction, suffice to say that other than selling his products at markets and suchlike near where he lives, a fair number of his products are exclusive to www.scorchio.co.uk and this is one such sauce!
