Geordie Translation:- On a resent trip te The Toon wi cyame across Bernie Bumm’s creator Earl Gough an his range of sauces. Wi tried a few an then selected the hottest one fre a review

On popping open the bottle the smell has the effect of widening your nostrels, as my nose recovers I can smell the white vinegar and the lime. The heat is instant, my mouth is on fire as the heat and then hickups smack me about, a teaspoon now seems a lot of sauce as a taste. WOW a few minutes has passed and I am now back at the keyboard, eyes watered, tongue is throbbing. Still little response from my taste buds, so a much smaller dose this time… it burns… I can feel and it is a feeling of a little sweetness and then I am again wiped out.

So a bit of fail for me tasting this sauce on its own, so later it has been added to my lunch, beans on toast, and then heat becomes more manageable, it is still very hot and just a teaspoon is needed to bring the beans to life, cannot taste the aubergine, but the apple juice and lime are much more noticeable.

You can see on the square bottles that the labels are placed on the corners, Earl told us this was a happy accident as when the first labels arrived they had been made to stock on the sides, but due to the rounded corners on the bottles they started to peel, so they where placed on the corners giving the bottle a unique and very identifiable look.

Best to use this kind of sauce with care the Carolina Reaper is a stupidly hot chilli, tests have seen it pass over 2 Million Scoville units at a peak result and even with the average of 1.5 Million

Hi Chilli Padawans!! Well, bugger me this review has been a long time coming…after about 6 months of down time I am finally back on the horse, covered in chilli sauce and whistling dixie! (well, everything except those last couple of things!) And this is a *cracking* sauce to do a comeback with too!

This sauce is made by the Powers family of mexican/american-british descent on the Isle of Wight using a recipe that originated in California that was handed down through the generations until it reached the current producers of the sauce, where it has evolved into a blend of the finest ingredients and including fruits and chillis to make the sauce that I’m reviewing today!

Ingredients:Tomatoes, Onion, Mango, Vinegar, Mango, Habanero peppers, Chipotle, Garlic, Lime, Cilantro (coriander), Agave nectar, Salt, Spices.

So, if you all know me well enough, you know that I LOVE chipotle sauces, in fact I don’t think i’ve tasted a bad one yet… (aside from cottage delight, that stuff was rank) and as such, I doubt I’m going to dislike this either! But lets have the sauce do the talking!!

Its in a beautiful skull shaped bottle proudly adorning a label on the back of its head that simply reads “Bloody Hell Hotsauce” the main label is attached to the neck of the bottle by string, which itself has the logo wrapped round it also, so you’ll be hard pushed to forget the name of this sauce!

Right, I’m waffling on, lets get down to the nitty gritty eh padawans?

And there you have it, for £13 delivered this is an absolute STEAL, especially considering the sauce itself is bloody gorgeous *and* you get 400ml of it!! You couldn’t find a bargain like that anywhere, I urge all of you to get a bottle of this and post your own thoughts in the comments below, I personally found it lush, so get yourselves over to www.bloodyhellhotsauce.com and get a bottle bought!!

Right, thats it for this week my Chilli Padawans, keep your eyes open next week for another review, and until then…may the sauce be with you, always!!

Nick Woods, or Woody as he is better known runs Fire Foods with his wife Zoe. They have created a large product range since they started the company. Not only is the product range large, it is also very diverse with all manner of usually mundane larder items being given the Fire Foods makeover, from Firemite to their own Chilli Vodka, there should be something to appeal to even the most timid of chilli tasters!

This review is for Naga Lime Pickle, Woody’s take on the Indian Restaurant staple. Lime Pickle itself is a product that many people do not like and I have to admit that it’s a taste that has grown on me over the years. But there is one thing that can improve a lime pickle and that’s the heat level, and seeing as this has Naga in it, I know that I should be happy in that department!

The Jar used is their usual Hexagonal shaped jar which makes a change from a standard round jar and the labelling is designed to make use of the angles, the now familiar Fire Foods logo and the tag line “unleash the heat” sit nicely on one face. The label is glossy, colourful and has a very polished look to it.

Ingredients:

 Lime (70%), Salt, Oil, Mustard, Fenugreek, Chilli Powder, Chilli Extract, Acetic Acid, Turmeric, Asafoetida, Coriander, Cumin

 Jar kindly supplied by Fire foods.

Once open, that familiar smell hits me and my mouth immediately salivates and I wish I had some poppadum’s in the house! The lime comes through strongly, which shouldn’t be a surprise as its 70% limes.

The texture is great, very thick and nice big chunks of lime in the curry mixture.Tasting the pickle, I get the zing of the citrus on my taste buds, the sourness, the Indian spices and then the heat.

The heat is not the “blow your head off” type of heat that you might expect and it’s a good job too as the Naga would have to fight against some pretty strong flavours. The ingredients list mentions Chilli Extract, which has struck fear into many a Chile Head and conjures up visions of stomach cramps but as mentioned the heat here will not cause you pain, it will light up your tongue and tell your brain that something is going on but stays well behaved!

My only criticism (and its a tiny one) would be with regard to the Salt content; it is second on the ingredients list and does seem to taste quite salty. I understand that to make Lime Pickle, the Limes have to be salted for some time to soften them, so I suppose it’s an inevitable outcome, although this pickle is slightly saltier than others I’ve tasted. It might just be this batch. I always thought that the curry houses made it saltier to get you to buy more drinks!

You can buy Naga Lime Pickle from Fire Foods website priced at £4 for a 230g  jar.
