The Peri Peri chilli is one of Africa’s hottest. This sauce is made with peppers that have been grown in Botswana and Mozambique exclusively for the Kalahari Pepper Company.
This sauce was a winner of the 2000 Scovie awards and we rate it as one of the best Peri Peri based sauces around.
Before you use the sauce we advise that you shake well and use African Rhino Sauce on all meat types, seafood or poultry dishes.
Next up, a smart looking product from the team at Alessi. They are one of those companies which embody the Italian mix of syle, culture, namely and design.
They are a family run company, but have the brand strength to bring products which are from the top drawer in terms of design.
This item is a smart looking container / shaker with a fun looking chilli detail. You can put in whole chillies, flaked chillies or powdered chillies – as you like (we have recommended a few options further down the page….
Flaked Chillies – Birds Eye
What better to put in the shaker than these small, bright red flaked chillies are packed with heat and flavour. They have a scoville heat rating of between 150,000 – 200,000.
They are used extensively in Asian cooking and an key ingredient in Thai curries.
Ground Habanero Chilli Powder
The Habanero Pepper is one of the hottest chilli peppers in the world, measuring between 200,000 and 300,000 Scoville Heat Units.
Peri Peri Chilli Powder
These are only 5mm long and when they are ground, the hot intense flavour will jolt the sense… and even bring a tear to the eye.
Simon aka The Chilli Jam Man very kindly agreed to send across a sample of his infamous Three Peaks Chilli Jam.
All Jams from the Chilli Jam Man’s are approached in a refreshing process as the ingredients are kept as pure and simple as possible. They are all locally produced and there is no use of preservatives, colourings or anything remotely resembling an E-number.
The box arrived the very day after we spoke (so you can be sure that postage is quick) and was heartily stamped with the Chilli Jam Man logo.
The label is minimalist in design (though these have been fantabulously redesigned recently), saying what it needs to, the logo really stands out and it covers of the stuff you’d expect.
Upon opening the jar we had a healthy sniff and you get this wonderful garlicky almost oriental smell – and looking at the ingredients that would come from the fish sauce which has been added.
This is a runny jam (it has no chemically gelling agents in it) and it has small bits which add a really nice texture to it.
The taste is sweet to start off with and after two or three seconds a fair old kick of chilli heat comes in – the Bhut Jolokia, the Habanero and the Birds Eye chilli heat comes in – it definitely gives a decent burn, this is exceptionally moreish – we devoured the jar in a matter days!
Here we have used it in a stir fry … we stir fried it for 4 minutes. Added some chopped herbs and added 2 large spoonfuls of Three Peaks Chilli jam and hey presto – the best stir fry this side of the far east – which had lots of flavour and a nice burn to it!
So if you like what you see, head over to The Chilli Jam Man and see the full collection today.
