The Wiltshire Chilli Farm – Smoked Chipotle Chilli SauceHere have another sauce from the ever growing range at The Wiltshire Chilli Farm. This time it is made around one of my favourite Chillies, the Chipotle, which isn’t the variety; it is actually the name for a smoked Jalapeno.

This sauce carry’s the now familiar branding of the company and states “moderate heat”. The colour is a deep orangey red and tempting me to open the bottle so let’s get on with it.

Ingredients: Tomatoes, Onions, Red Wine Vinegar, Sugar, Molasses, Smoked Garlic (1%), Smoked Chipotle Chilli (1%), Various spices.

Bottle kindly provided by The Wiltshire Chilli Farm

Once open there is an immediate aroma of tomatoes, smokiness and a sweetness from the molasses. Having already read the ingredients list I know that this only contains 1% chipotle so I’m not expecting a hot sauce. That’s one of the key things about sauce making, having a balance of heat versus flavour. It’s not always about extreme heat.

This sauce lives up to that adage, it is immediately smoky, and sweet and has a gentle burn in the background. I could see myself using this on anything to be honest, and as the label suggests would work well as a marinade for meat prior to Barbequing.

It is very moreish and I soon realise that I have gone through half the 140ml bottle just writing this review.

So another solid product from Jamie Sythe’s and at £4 or 3 for £10 it looks even better.

Available from most of the major Chilli festivals this summer and from www.justchillies.co.uk
