The Bay Tree Roquito Chilli Spice SaucI picked this sauce manufactured by The Bay Tree up from my local garden centre, they have an excellent farm shop and restaurant attached and often have interesting products, this one caught by eye as it mentioned Roquito Chillies. The Logo you see on the bottle is registered to Leathams Ltd in London, in the UK they seem to distribute a range of Roquito based products. Well it turns out that the Roquito chilli are a variety of Jalapeno that has been ripened to red (That is from the Roquito facebook page).

Ingredients: Water, Roquito Chilli Pepper (25%)[Chilli Pepper, Water, Sugar, Vinegar], Cider Vinegar. Lemon Juice, Onion, Salt, Thickener: Maize Starch, Garlic, Spices

Well back to the sauce which seems quite thin in the bottle, on opening it smell slightly sweet with a twang of cider vinegar, as you can see from the picture the colour is dark red. The taste is immediately that of the vinegar and then a little warth of the chilli arrives, it is not a very hot sauce, but it has a peppery taste that starts to reminds me of a cayenne style sauce. This sauce is to thin to be used as a tomato sauce, but would be ideal sprinkled over some chips or as part of a salad dressing.

I would be good to know a little more about the Roquito Chilli Pepper. I can find very little information on the Leathams and other web sites, it could just be a brand name that covers any number of chilli varieties, hopefully some one will let me know.

I did however quite like this sauce, it will no doubt get used up in and on things over the next few weeks, at only £2.99 for a 250g bottle the price is not over the top.
