They call it Mellow Yellow? I dont think so! This product, Aji Limon & Yellow 7 Pot Jam, is not commercially available to buy online or in high street stores, its made in small batch quantities by legendary creator ‘Rob House’. Rob House is an avid chilli head, who shows his passion in the chilli world, not only by growing and collecting sauces, but travelling around the UK to dominate chilli challenges, eating competitions and any other confrontations that stand in his way. Rob has shown his hardcore eating skills at this years Upton Cheyney chilli fest 2012 and did himself proud with a shiny bronze medal.

The label is simple but compliments the jar well with the burning orange radiance of the jam, but as its his first test batch, he may have other label ideas for future release. But how it stands now is a traditional ‘homemade’ appearance and gives it that ‘I don’t look hot’ appeal. Hopefully Granny doesnt carelessly spread it on her toast, it could send her off to an early grave!

Ingredients:

Jam sugar, cider vinegar, yellow bell peppers, yellow 7 pot chillis, aji lemon chillis

As soon as you twist the lid off *SNIFF SNIFF* you are exposed to a certain aroma that might be familiar to you, and that would be yes, you got it ‘superhots’. The smell is tangy and sweet, slightly overpowered by vineger, a 7 pot gusto and a slight citrusy aroma, more than likely from the aji limons.

I know it may be hard to believe but it tastes exactly how it smells, the the vinegar is more dominant (which isn’t a major issue). The consistancy of the jam is slightly on the runny side, but still holds as a jam. *takes spoonfull*

After  the tangy judders and citrusy hints, the heat of the 7 pot shines through and gives me an all round mouth burn which is quite pleasant, which i didnt expect. I thought i was going to be screaming round the kitchen with milk at hand. The aftertaste was really nice, even more so if it had a tad less vinegar in it.

Spreading this on toast or bread for a fiery breakfast sounds like a good plan, or as a meat marinade. I can imagine this being delectable with chicken, it will vamp it up for sure and make a hot, sweet, savoury treat.

Rob has done a great job with this, but still has elements that need improving, one of them being the vinegar issue, which im sure he’s noted  for next time. It would nice to see a range of these jams from mild to XXXTREME as I would be sure purchase them, I dont have much jam in my collection, but I might start giving some a try.

To add to that, Rob has another jam Called Hawaiian Sunrise which contains the nuclear yellow 7 pot brainstrain, I’m sure that will be a lot hotter than the limon and 7 pot jam, but who knows until I try it…………..it sounds like a delicious dare.
