Bim's Kitchen - African Chillinut Sauce

Bim's Kitchen - African Chillinut Sauce

Bim’s Kitchen is a new business to us, they have just sent us a selection of their products to review, their inspiration comes from Africa and they use some interesting ingredients such as Alligator Pepper, Cubeb Pepper, Melon seeds, things we don’t find in other chilli products we have tried.

Bim’s is run by husband and wife team James “Bim” and Nicola Adedeji, they normally sell at Palmers Green Community Market and have now been selected for Stein’s Deli in Padstow and also by deli-café operator The Market Place Group.

The first to be reviewed is their African Chillinut Sauce, which is Bim’s flagship chilli sauce, on opening the jar there is an aroma of roasted peanuts and sunflower oil, the mixture is a dark reddy brown colour, and contains quite a lot of oil.

The smell of peanuts converts directly to a great taste of roasted peanuts, these peanuts have not all been blitz down completely, leaving a few small pieces that give the sauces a great texture, the heat comes from the Birdeye Chillies and with the oil it spreads quickly around the mouth giving a very pleasant glow, as the heat cools and after another spoonful I can start to taste the other ingredients, the Garlic, Cumin and Cinnamon make this a very special unique flavour. I am very please to find the Lemon is not overpowering the other flavour, which seems to be the thing with the mass produced African style sauces.

Ingredients: Onion, Sunflower Oil, Roasted Groundnuts, Birdseye Chillies, Tomatoes, Peppercorns, Salt, Lemon Juice, Cumin, Cinnamon, Soy Sauce, Molasses.

This is a delicious and very different to anything I have tried while reviewing sauces for the ChileFoundry, I cannot wait to try this roasted on some chicken. Bim’s web site provides some suggested uses for the sauce including adding to it some coconut milk to make a curry, or just simply brushing it over meat/fish before grilling, the sunflower oil would work well here transferring the flavour.

The packaging is clean and simple with the unmistakeable profile of Africa printed on the label, it is almost to simple, but it works well and all the information is visible.

You an order this on-line at www.bimskitchen.com and at £3.50 for a 270g jar it is worth giving it a try, even if you just stir some into plain boiled rice you are in for a real treat.
