Karimix Scotch Bonnet & Mango Chilli Sauce

Karimix Scotch Bonnet & Mango Chilli Sauce

Karimix started life in the 1980 with a range of products based on some traditional family recipes, based in Wye, Kent. They have built a very good reputation for creating some excellent curry pastes, many of which we have used over the years.

At IFE this year (2011) Karimix launched a new range of products, the one we are tasting today had already won a Gold at the  Great Taste Awards.

The sauce comes in a 100ml stubby bottle, it has a orange colour with small pieces of chilli flesh and seeds floating in the mix, I would describe this as a thin sauce, but not watery.

On opening I can immediately smell the Mangos and a slight hint of Vinegar and Garlic, the initial flavour comes form the Mango,  it is not to sweet, but has that distinctive Mango flavour that just seems to bring to mind warm summer evenings by the sea.

The Scotch Bonnets follow this with a little warmth, this sauce is not extreme, but has been well developed and shows off the chefs skills at balancing flavours. After the warmth from the bonnets, I can savour the Ginger and Garlic, nothing here is over powering and it is very easy to enjoy the flavours again and again (That can be hard to do with the extreme, or unbalanced sauces).

Ingredients: Water, Sugar, Vinegar, Mango Puree (7.2%) Scotch Bonnet Chillies (6%) Fruit Juice, Ginger, Garlic, Spices, Salt, Cornflour.

I can see why this got a gold award, it would be in the top few for me in the fruit based chilli sauces I have tried, I cannot wait to review some of the other Karimix products we have in the schedule.

If your local retailer does not yet stock this sauces, tell them they should be stocking it and doing tasting for their customers, it will sell like hot…. and we expect this to retail at approx £2.99  per bottle so it will not break the bank either

You can find their distributor list on the Karimix web site and they I am sure will be sampling it at West Dean and other chilli show during the summer, as far as I can see it has not yet even made it on to their own web site, so keep looking for it.

Note: The sauce is Gluten free and suitable for vegetarians
