Top 10 UK Chilli Web Sites

We have dropped to third this month with the #1 spot now being held  by old favourites Hot-Headz with Scorchio at #2. This month is also the best showing so far for ChilliPepperPete up at #6. But the big surprise is that The Dartmoor Chilli Farm has dropped out of the top 10 to #11. 

Lots of new website designs around at the moment, With Scorcho and ChilliPepperPete and The Dartmoor Chilli Farm all having new sites, it will be interesting to see how this effect them over the coming months.

Brother Bru-Bru's African Chipotle Pepper Sauce

Brother Bru-Bru's African Chipotle Pepper Sauce

Brother Bru-Bru AKA “The Tambourine Man” developed his Original Brother Bru-Bru’s African Hot Sauce after  developing a blood pressure problem, being told to cut back on salt. he create his own low sodium condiment.

The original sauce was a firm favourite here at ChileFoundry HQ, well this one seems to have some sea salt and this time is based on those lovely smoky chipotles.

Off with the lid and there an aroma of smoky chipotles, cider vinegar and garlic, it is almost intoxicating, the taste is also one you have to keep trying and trying and gets more and more interesting the more you try.

Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar, Water, Chipotle Peppers, Garlic, American and African Spices, Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum.

Bottle kindly provided by www.hot-headz.com

The cider vinegar is always good as the base for a sauce, it is not as sharp or as overpowering as normal vinegar, the chipotles add the warmth and smoke, and you cannot miss the garlic, but after that there are some peppery flavours, that could be something like Long Pepper, or one of those ingredients Bim from Bim’s Kitchen sent us to try.

There is not as much peppery flavours as Bim uses, us it is along the same lines.

The sauce comes in a standard 148ml/5oz bottle and costs £3.99 a bottle, the original sauce was great, and this one is close to being as good.

Original Source Lime and Chilli Shower Spice

Original Source Lime and Chilli Shower Spice

So you want to be clean after your shower, but you love Limes & Sweet Chilli Sauce, then this may be the product for you….

Its a shower gel (read Shower Spice), it does smell of Limes and Green Chillies, it is a bit like hanging around one of the many poly tunnels we have visited this year, it is not unpleasent, but I am not sure that is what I want to make myself smell like this.

As a shower gel it seemed to work OK, and luckily for me  I am told the smell of green chillies did not last long, after an initial burst of green chilli fragrance, I could not smell it.

Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride……. …….Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, Capsicum Fructensens Fruit Extract…… …… lots of other stuff.

The Ingredients list is amazing, lots of stuff that mean nothing to most of us, expect I did fine Lime and Capsicum listed (Not even sure got the correct spelling for what I did put down). I do know that the first ingredient is water (why would you call that Aqua).

I like Original Source products, I use their Original Lime Shower Gel often (Before you all say it not often enough) and while this one was OK, I am not sure I would buy it again, I think I will stick to the Original Original Source.
