While at the Firey Foods Festival in Brighton, Chris & Rosie Jagger from Volcano Chilli asked me when I was going to review a sauce that they have found to be an excellent seller, Chris then sent me another bottle, he said that the recipe has been improved from the original version.

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Ghost Pepper 10 Sauce

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Ghost Pepper 10 Sauce

Products from Cambeidge Chilli Farm have very quickly got a devoted fan base, we had a review earlier in the year by ChilliPepperPete of the Raspberry & Chilli Jelly, he raved about the quality ingredients and depth of flavour.

Ingredients:- Roasted Tomatoes, Brown Sugar, Bhut Jolokia Pepper, Roasted Garlic, Cider Vinegar, Roasted Red Peppers, Lime Juice, Molasses, Rosemary, Black Pepper, Salt.

(Bottles kindly provide by Volcano Chilli & Cambridge Chilli Farm)

Why is it called “Ghost Pepper 10” well this sauce contains 10 Naga Morich chillies (aka Ghost Peppers) in each bottle, that should be a good warning to the taste buds that this is going to be a hot one. It is currently the hottest sauce the Cambridge Chilli Farm makes (with the exception of some seasonal specials).

Ghost Pepper 10 comes in a 150ml bottle; it is a reddish/brown colour with lots of small flecks of ingredients evenly floating in the mix. The sauce smells wonderful, you can instantly smell the roasted tomatoes, garlic and red peppers, I have in the past found sauces that have roasted ingredients tend to have a great depth of flavour.

At first taste the heat is significant, it burst over the tongue and works its way around the mouth, as the heat subsides I can then get a better feeling for the flavour of this sauce, I was expecting more tomato, but it is the garlic and the fruity peppery taste from the chillies that comes across first, with the roasted tomato and peppers following a little after, with just a hint of BBQ from the molasses.

This is a very hot sauce for one that uses all natural product (no extract), it will not last long here at ChileFoundry HQ, I am sure there will be lots of excuses to add this to a few recipes, my first plan would be to add a little to homemade burgers, then to my ever evolving Chile recipe (one day I will finish it, but I keep getting new ingredients to try).

This is not a low budget sauce at £4.50 per bottle, but it is very good value for the quantity of Naga’s alone, if you then think about the processes that have been involved in its creation, with three roasted ingredients, it is starting to sound like a bargain.

You can buy this sauce online at Volcano Chilli and direct from Cambridge Chilli Farm, or by visiting them in Lincoln and Cambridge, visit their web sites for more information.

Any rough idea of the scoville rating for this sauce? Thanks
