The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Mango Hot Chilli Sauce

It took me a little while to write this; the Wiltshire Chilli Farm’s Mango Hot Chilli Sauce isn’t easy to pigeonhole. For some reason I expected a hot, fresh mango purée for use with puddings, but it’s actually a savoury pouring sauce with plenty of mustard and vinegar.

That’s not to say it doesn’t work. The mango element’s more along the line of mango chutney than the fruit itself, and so eats best in a similar way; with poppadums, fried food and cheese. It worked well with cold roast chicken.

It’s suggested on the bottle to try it with “grilled fish, stir fries or as a spicy table sauce.” I’ve been eating it in sausage sandwiches and with cheese on toast. Mrs Pat’s putting it on everything. It’s just a generally pleasant addition to savoury snack food, a solid all-rounder thanks to its sweetness.

Ingredients: Mango (31%), cider vinegar, onion, sugar, lime, chilli (3%), garlic, mustard, “various spices”.

Don’t be fooled, though: there’s a surprising amount of heat from the 3% Habanero chilli, and you’ll get a throat-top burn if you have a decent spoonful. It was too hot for mother-in-law, but Mrs Pat loved it. You get 140ml; £3.75’s decent value.

The consistency’s thin and chunky, and the sugar plays a big part in the way it sticks to the inside of the bottle. The packaging’s fun, with what looks like a cluster of habs on a black background, and lots of yellow to support the mango theme.

It’s a grower, and a good addition to your collection, especially if you’re fond of sweeter sauces. There’s plenty going for it. I’ll keep holding out for the pure mango with a kick for ice cream, but this’ll do fine for now. Get it here.
