Upton Cheyney Chilli Sunshine Sauce review:
As with all their hot sauces the label has their trademark homely design to it welcoming you in and how can you resist a a very funky looking sun holding a couple of chilli peppers!
The bottle says "A hot sauce with flavours of summer including pineapple, honey and lime. Drizzle over salad for a taste of sunshine"
The ingredients are truly summery ingredients including pineapple which gives that sunshine feel. The addition of honey provides the sweetness and habanero lets you feel the heat of the sun. This hot sauce does not focus on the heat of the habanero and will not blow your head off. Instead the other ingredients compliment the natural fruity flavour of the habanero and this is a good thing. The overall sauce is a great for livening up all manner of salads or as a dip. I found sunshine sauce went well with pizza and a rather interesting prawn stir fry.
Why should you buy this sauce....The passion the Upton Cheyney Chilli Company have for their farm and their products is clear, and this is evident in the quality of the sauces they produce. Their chilis are organic and home grown and their ever expanding range of sauces are ones you should check out. If habanero heat is not for don't worry they have a full range of tasty stuff worth giving a go, including my favourite 'oak smoked chipotle sauce'
Check out their online farm shop here and pick up a bottle of sunshine from them direct and support this UK company. I certainly look forward to working my way through the rest of their sauces.
