Marie Sharps Habanero Pepper Sauce

Marie Sharps Habanero Pepper Sauce

This bottle of Pepper sauce comes all the way from Belize in South America and is made from Habanero Peppers grown in the foothills of the Mayan Mountains. I have sampled quite a lot of American Hot Habanero sauces which are often very similar in taste and flavour to each other, I was expecting this sauce to be no different but I was wrong.

The bottle itself is pleasing to the eye, showing off the red sauce within. The labelling is predominantly white which gives a good contrast in colour. The rear of the label contains the ingredients and nutritional values etc, but even with my glasses on the text is still too difficult to read!

Ingredients: Selected Red Habanero Peppers, Fresh Carrots, Onions, Lime Juice, Vinegar, Garlic and Salt.

The sauce once poured out has a large amount of seeds visible, which is never a bad thing.

It has the familiar aroma of a Habanero sauce with the vinegar and garlic but there is something else. A quick check of the ingredients reveals that the base for the sauce is carrot.

This added ingredient gives the sauce a different dimension and one that really works, the combination of flavours blend well together and the heat of the habanero is present, but it’s a gentle heat which builds slowly but never overtakes the very tasty and flavourful sauce.

As with any hot sauce product, heat must be balanced with flavour, and this is no exception. I am pleasantly surprised by this bottle of chilli goodness. The carrots and hot habaneros is a great combination and I can recommend getting hold of a bottle, this isn’t just another habanero sauce. I can’t wait to try other products from the range.

The bottle is 148ml and costs around the £4 mark www.hot-headz.com and other online retailers.
