We at Chilefoundry know little about Fire Dragon Foods, but we received this in for review, it appears that their website is currently locked, whether temporary or permanently I have no idea so limited information is available.
Picking up the jar, I was expecting a thick jam like texture as you do with most jar based products but was surprised to find a sauce like consistency, I do wonder why this is not in a bottle but liked the change.
I had this with a standard, frozen breaded chicken product and it really complimented it well, it made the flavour of the chicken go from bland to mouth watering and found myself putting my knife back in the jar several times to smother the chicken in it.
As soon as you open the jar, the scotch Bonnet, fruity scent is the first thing to hit you, along with the vinegar and the garlic, looking at the sauce you can see it is of a high quality with the scotch bonnets, ginger and garlic clear to see.
The sauce only has 6 ingredients and they are all natural products you could find in the supermarket. There are no preservatives or additives and I feel this really shows in the flavour, proof that simple, natural ingredients often make for a higher quality product.
After using the sauce in such a standard fashion, I am looking forward to cooking with it. It advises on the side of the jar that this adds fire and depth of flavour and I definitely agree with this statement.
It also gives suggestions for uses such as Soups, pasta dishes and marinades, which I always appreciate as it gives me ideas on what I can use the product in.
Scotch Bonnet chillies, Vinegar, Ginger, Garlic, Mustard Salt.
The packaging itself uses font and colour well, with red white and black used in the text and in the background. It’s clear this is not a supermarket mass produced product but I like this fact as it makes me envisage small batches being lovingly prepared as opposed to a huge factory churning out the product without much care or attention.
I was very impressed with the flavour and punchy heat of the sauce and am already thinking of different ways to use it in cooking, which to me, is the sign of a great sauce.
So if you can source a jar then it would be a worthwhile purchase, we will keep an eye on their website to see if things change.
