Fire Foods

Fire Foods

Some of the most interesting products we found at West Dean this year came from a company called Fire Foods, it was at times hard to get near the stand for the crowds tasting the range of sauces. A very unique but interesting sauces was Firemite, a mixture of Marmite and Hot Sauce, I guess it was one of those Marmite Love/Hate things, but the people I spoke to loved it as did I.

Another Interesting product was his Crunchy Chilli Peanut Butter, some products just seem right as soon as you hear about them.

Nick Woods (Woody to his friends) started Fire Foods after being give some chilli plants, soon he was hooked on the heat and disappointed in the locally available products so he started to make his own, now based in Grantham Lincolnshire, the business uses only the finest fresh ingredients ingredients.

His range now includes Hot Sauces, Chutneys and Relishes, Snacks, Jams and Marmalades and a range of Fire Foods T-Shirts.

The web site is excellent with good descriptions and images of the products, but best of all is the Fire foods forum with 100’s of people who are interested in using and growing chillies

We hope to do a full interview with Woody soon and get more information on what is in development.

Cool Chile Co – Chipotle Chile Ketchup

Cool Chile Co – Chipotle Chile Ketchup

The Cool Chile Co’s Chipotle Chile Ketchup come is a 270g dumpy bottle, on opening you can smell tomatoes and vinegar with a hint of smoke, the flavour is sweet and smoky and warm,  the sauce is consistency of a brown sauce but with good sized pieces of onion and tomato and chipotle. The taste brings back memories of warm days and  slow cooked American BBQ‘s, this is a fine ketchup.

I have a soft spot for Chipotle based products, having used them in our range of crisps and BBQ rubs. This ketchup is a good example of their use, they providing heat and smoky flavour without overpowering the other ingredients. It is idea of adding to burgers or spread on chicken breast and grilled or roasted in the oven.

Ingredients:
Tomato puree, sugar, cider vinegar, onions, chipotles, salt, herbs and spices.

Dodie Miller started Cool Chile Co in 1993 with the aim to provide a whole new spice cupboard of flavours and heat sensations for Mexican and home cooking. The company now provides a vast range of Mexican products and has a stall in the Borough market (Near London Bridge, Opening Hours: 11am to 6 pm Friday, 8am to 5pm Saturday) where they sell the complete range including their own Corn Tortillas.

You can buy this Chipotle ketchup on online at www.coolchile.co.uk
