Upton Cheyney Chilli Company Fruity Chilli Sauce

Upton Cheyney Chilli Company Fruity Chilli Sauce

The Upton Cheyney Chilli Company is located on the edge of the Cotswold Hills. This quaint village boasts history, farming and of course the multitude of chilli plants in the polytunnels of Alex Duck. Upton Cheyney Chilli Company offer a wide selection of sauces, jams, chutneys and relishes created in their Farm shop kitchen and grown from all natural organic methods. Where their stock allows, they use their own home grown onion and garlic. They also sell their dried and fresh chillies, seeds and growing kits.

The Upton Cheyney Chilli Company Fruity Chilli Sauce was given the ‘Best Sauce’ award at the Wessex Chilli Festival on the 10th of October 2010. After tasting this sauce, it is fair to see why!

Ingredients: Fresh Chilli, Sugar, Cider Vinegar, Golden Sultanas, Garlic, Ginger, Salt.

Bottle supplied by The Upton Cheyney Chilli Company.

The 140ml bottle holds a large but simply designed light green label giving you details of the neccessities. The sauce is thick and gloopy with plenty of texture from sultanas and coarsly blended chillies. Funnily enough, it smells like a warm October evening, that must be the ginger and vinegar. It has an almost smokey scent, which must be the garlic itself sneaking in a bit of air time.

The cider vinegar makes a great carrier for the sauce, which is sweetened up nicely by the sugar, so the sauce is not too sour. The small chunks of ginger floating about in the depths of this bottle create a very subtle tangy flavour which lends itself to the sultanas to give an earthy molasses type of taste. Almost immediately you get a discreet burn on the inside of the lips, but it isn’t bad! Its a nice tingle set off by the chillies and carried with the ginger to make sure it activates all of your tastebuds. The flavours might all suggest sour (apart from the sugar and sultanas) but they blend just enough to make you believe there are all kinds of fruits in here! If I hadn’t know any better (or read the ingredients) I would have sworn there was apple in here somewhere. This Fruity Chilli sauce could be sweet, it could be savoury, all I know is that its damn good.

At a medium heat, Upton Cheyney Chilli Company suggest this sauce on salads, as a party dip, with cheese or nachos, or as an alternative to conventional sauces. I would certainly recommend it to be used with cheese and crackers, cheese on toast, salads, baked potatoes… Its delicious!

The Upton Cheyney Chilli Company’s Fruity Chilli Sauce is available in their online store at £4 a bottle! You won’t be disappointed.
