Fire Foods is probabaly best know for the Infinity Chilli, that super hot monster of a chilli, that was all over the news a few months ago, but Woody and his team at Fire Foods produces some excellent and tasty products, we loved his Firemite sauce. This time they have taken a traditional product Piccalilli and souped it up a bit.

On opening the jar there is that lovely fresh mustard/vinegar smell that you only get from a good Piccalilli, if I did not know this had some Naga’s hiding in the mix the smell would not give it away.

The vegetables are still fresh and crunchy, then the heat hits, while I can still taste the mustard, but the heat has that definite Naga overtone, it gets warmer and warmer.  It takes a few spoonfuls to get the full effect of this and the sweat starts to appear on my brow. I can see on the ingredients list it contains some chilli extract, but I am not getting and hints of bitterness this sometimes imparts. This is Piccalilli, but not as we know it.

There are all the best bits of Piccalilli, mustard, vinegar & turmeric and crunchy vegetables, and then the lip tingling naga’s, while I am sure Woody could be made hotter, I am not sure he need to as the combination is just about perfect for the true Chilli-Head.

Ingredients: Water, Cauliflower, Onion, Carrot, Peas, Naga Chilli, Sugar, Gerkin, Spirit Vinegar, Chilli Extract, Modified Maize Starch, Salt, Acetic Acid, Mustard Flour, Turmeric, Pepper, Preservative.

Mashed potatoes, some cold chicken, pickled onions and some Chillililli  and you don’t get a much better meal than that, while I know this will not last long, I may have to get my hands on a few more jars to hide away ready for Christmas (I know it a long way off, but I need to plan).

At £4.00 for a 175ml jar you get a lot of bang for your money, Fire Foods has that skill of taking everyday products and expertly combing them with chillies to make something exceptional, but these are not products for the faint of heart….
