August 2011

We have made it to the number 1 spot for the first time in the 2 years, we have pushed Hot-Headz into second place, while the Dartmoor Chilli Farm has been busy with the DNPA Planning department so they have not updated their site as often. Just outside the top 10 at number 11 is Trees Can’t Dance who have never as yet appeared in the top 20 before.

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Naga Napalm Onion Relish

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Naga Napalm Onion Relish

This is unfortunately named: it’s a delicious, expertly made sweet onion relish with a building background heat supplied by a low level of Naga Morich. Given the moniker and packaging I was expecting the sweats, but instead got an eyebrow-raising accompaniment to cold suppers. In one sitting, we demolished half a jar with brie, bread and salad with two chilli novice friends (who, incidentally, were wary thanks to the skull and crossbones on the label, until I tried it and told them it wasn’t as immediately hot as the fresh cayennes we’d been munching a few minutes earlier).

Ingredients: Red Onions, Brown Sugar, Red Wine Vinegar, Naga Morich, Black Pepper.

It’s moreish, and perfect with ham, cheese and tomatoes. It smells sweet and strongly of onions in the jar. The molten red onion and sugar coat the mouth before the morich starts as a hint and builds to an all-over buzz as you inevitably spoon out more. It’s dark and sticky. Most importantly, the heat is fantastically well judged, and a it made great addition to our evening; I just can’t help wishing the macho branding had been pulled back a little to let the flavour speak for itself.

It’s not the cheapest at £3.20, but based on the general experience and it’s usability as a sharing pot I can’t recommend this enough. I’ll be keeping a jar in my cupboard from now on. Get it here.

Captain Tiptoes is the brand of one of our local food heroes, Olives Et Al who make some of the best Olives tasting in the UK, a while ago they purchased a nut roaster and have been busy making interesting coated nut concoctions ever since.

Captain Tiptoes -Sweet Chilli Harrissa Nuts

Captain Tiptoes -Sweet Chilli Harrissa Nuts

This latest one is a mixture of Almonds and Peanuts, they use the Demerara sugar to stick the mixture of oil, herbs and spices to the nuts while tumbling them in a heated drum, this is a bit of an art that they seem to have got spot on, some times the process can end up with lost of broken nuts with a overly sweet coating of sugar, but not Captain Tiptoes products these are first rate, nice whole nuts with a even coating.

Ingredients: Mixed Nuts (83%) (Almonds, Peanuts), Demerara Sugar, Harissa (4%) (Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt, Garlic, Pepper Spices, Mint, Chilli).

The flavour is excellent, not very hot but still warming and tasty, you can pick out all the flavours as you mouth warms, I would love to see them do an an extreme version as a limited edition, I am sure it would sell well.

At only £2.00 for a 100g packet, these are amazing good value for money, the only unfortunate bit is the whole family seems to like them, so that packet did not last long..
