Winner of two 2010 Golden Chiles

Holy Jolokia won two Golden Chile Awards in 2010 which is no small achievement, the awards are for winners of the Fiery Food Challenge (held at ZestFest in the USA), it is a blind tasting challenge so the results are just down to the sauce.

The sauce is a liquid sauce with just a few visible flecks of the chillies in the mix, it is a reddish orange colour, the bottle comes with one of those annoying plastic doppers (Must be designed to stop the stupid pouring on food!!) so once that is removed it may be possible to get a smell of the sauce.

It has a strong smell of the Bhut Jolokia carried by the vinegar,  and the taste is a big whack of heat with slight over tones of the garlic and lemon, the vinegar flavour is lots instantly in the heat.

This lemon flavour reminds me of some of the South African sauces we have tasted over the last few year, but this is much hotter than anything we have had from that continent as yet. On second taste the lemon and garlic is much more prevalent now that my taste buds know what to expect.

Ingredients: Vinegar, Bhut Jolokia Chilies, Sugar, Salt, Granulated Garlic, Lemon Extract, Xanthan Gum (Natural Thickener).

Its a very good sauce, lots of heat, lots of flavour, how would I use it? I not sure, probably with the lemon and garlic, it would make a base for a home made salad dressing, or wing sauce, for the level of heat the £4.99 price tag, its probably a bit expensive, but your purchase does help the Chile Pepper Institute so visit www.chilepepperinstitute.org for more information of the work they do.
