Chilliqueen Sun Dried Tomato & Balsamic Vinegar Chilli Jelly

Chilliqueen Sun Dried Tomato & Balsamic Vinegar Chilli Jelly

We have known Chilliqueen for a number of years, and they have now sent us a collection of their products to review, the first of which we are going to review is the Sun-Dried Tomato & Balsamic Vinegar Chilli Jelly, they recommend this as a glaze for meats, especially game, duck or sausages.

Chilliqueen are not in the realms of the superhot sauce makers, but have been working on getting the flavour from the chilli to enhance the flavours of their products. this jelly combines the chillies with the Mediterranean style sun-dried tomatoes

On cracking open the lid there is the reassuring pop of a well sealed jar, then comes a delightful hint of the Balsamic vinegar, in the dark jelly can be seen some chilli seeds floating evenly in the mix, it is thick-set as a good jelly should be.

Ingredients: Unrefined Sugar, Malt Vinegar, Water, Fresh Green Peppers, Sun-Dried Tomatoes (3.25%), Balsamic Vinegar (2.5%), Scotch Bonnet Chillies (0.94%) Chopped Basil, Natural Tomato Flavouring, Gelling Agent: Fruit Pectin.

In the jelly there are tasty pieces of sun dried tomato flesh, there is a little warmth but not enough to worry event the most timid chilli eater, the flavours from the combination of the Sun Dried Tomatoes and Balsamic make an excellent combination, and I can only agree with Chilliqueen putting this jelly with a pan fried duck breast as a glaze for the last few moment of cooking sounds like a perfect match.

At only £3.50 for an 220g jar is excellent value for a gourmet product and it is also suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs, you can order online at  www.chilliqueen.co.uk
