This week I have been trying their Hot Habanero Sauce. The bottle is 100ml and has their great logo at the top with an almost innocent looking picture of a chilli giving no real indication of the Rating 150,000-200,000 Scoville heat contained within.
The bottle says "The Habanero is the King of chillies - a great flavour and VERY HOT. The chillies used in the sauce are grown and cooked on our farm."
To get you thinking this sauce is Winner of a Gold Great Taste Award 2005 and 2007. As well as winner of a one-star gold Great Taste Award 2010.
The ingredients highlight the purity of the sauce 50% fresh Habanero chillies from their farm cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, salt. The habanero chili is a very fruity chilli packed with natural flavour alongside its impressive heat rating so not much is needed alongside it. I am pleased the South Devon Chilli farm have stuck to this and only added sweet sharpness to the powerful flavour.
Its true to say that and hot sauce containing habanero is mainly about heat, but the taste of this one accentuates all that is good about the habanero providing a rich full flavour not found in many equivalent sauces available in teh market. the sauce itself is quite runny as its mostly pure but not too runny than something like Tabasco's version of the Habanero sauce
South Devon Chilli Farm Hot Habanero Sauce can be used on its own dashed onto any food but is ideal for adding heat and flavour to spicy dishes. A few drops go a long way when used as a table condiment.
