Jme Holy Habanero Hot Chilli Sauce

Jme Holy Habanero Hot Chilli Sauce

How this looks like a sweet chilli sauce, but instead of using the usual birds eye chillies, they have selected to use the Habanero. I like sweet chilli sauces, but often they are just to sweet and lack the punch needed, this is due mostly to the excessive amounts of sugar and the lack of the expensive ingredient the chilli.

In this case things are not looking to bad, sugar and water and the top two ingredients as you would expect for this style of sauce, but  red chillies come third at 18%, let hope these are mostly tabs.

On cracking open the lid, it smell like a sweet chilli sauce… I guess I expected that. Now the taste nd warmth nearly knocked me over, I really was not expecting this to be hot. I know it says hot on the bottle, but how often does the hype not live up to reality.

Ingredients: Sugar, Water, Habanero Red Chillies (18%), Spirit Vinegar, Modified Maize Starch, Onions, Sea Salt, Garlic Puree, Preservative: Sodium Acid.

This is a cracking good hot sweet chilli sauce, it is sweet but not to the detriment of the flavour , it’s ideal as a dipping sauce, or pour in on nachos its got a really good flavour and no nasty aftertastes, this is one of the best sweet chill sauces I have tried. It would be my number 1, if it was not for my current favourite Trees Can’t Dance Sweet Chilli Sauce, but it is a very very close thing, this one wins on heat, TCD wins just by a nose on flavour.

This bottle cost £3.50 from my local farm shop, we don’t ofter buy our review products, but I could not resist this one and it was unlikely that we would get sent a bottle, so I am glad I did not just right this off as just another sweet chilli sauce.

The bottle includes url www.jmecollection.com, but I cannot find this sauce for sale on the site.

This is a bit of unusual product for us to review, but I could not resist buying a packet to try, delivery was a little slow, had to chase it a couple of time, but I think the courier has beaten the box a little before it finally arrived. 

A Quarter Of Madras Chilli Pips

A Quarter Of Madras Chilli Pips

Now pips have been around for ever and A Quarter Of carries over 20 different varieties including my other favourites Liquorice, Cola and Sherbet Pips.

Now these pips are not going to be overly hot, they are sold as a sweet, but there is a nice little bit of warmth if you pop a few in your mouth, apart from the sweetness and a bit of a cayenne type flavour there is not a lot to these. I think the Madras name maybe a bit confusing as there is no Indian Madras flavours.

Ingredients: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Citric Acid, Natural Colours & Flavours.

They cost £2.27 for a 160g tub, and are worth a go if you are buying anything else from there range. I think I would love to see some Naga Pips, maybe mixed with a few of the other flavours.

Note: On the web site there is an alternative name of Peppa Pips in honour of the children’s cartoon character Peppa Pig..

A Bit Chilli - Jalapeno Juicy Chutney

A Bit Chilli - Jalapeno Juicy Chutney

Now a chutney needs to be packed with flavours, generally you don’t put chutney with a mild flavoured food, so I am looking for a product that while it says mild in heat is still needs bursting at the seams with the best ingredients.

Now this chutney smells absolutely fantastic, on cracking the lid, you can smell the Tomato combined with the Red Onions and the Balsamic. The heat level is very mild, but there is still a little of that unmistakeable Jalapeno flavour.

Ingredients: Tomatoes (42%), Red Onions (25%), Balsamic Vinegar, Brown Sugar, Garlic Cloves, Jalapeno Chilli (0.5%), Fresh Rosemary, Salt, Black Pepper, bay Leaves, Cinnamon.

Jar kindly supplied by A Bit Chilli

This chutney is not going to set your sandwich on fire, the flavour is coming mostly from the Tomatoes, Onions Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar, the Jalapeno chillies just add a hint of warmth and flavour.

As a chutney, I love the flavour and without the overly sweet sugary taste of a Branston style pickle, I have almost eaten ½ a jar just writing this review, a little more Jalapeño would never go a miss and would still come under the mild banner.

You can pick up a jar of this for £3.80 for a single jar at the events they are attending, you can find a list of these on their web site www.abitchilli.co.uk where you can also order your own jar.
