Any recommendations from around the community on good ones? …same on BBQ sauces (and rubs) too!
My favourite HOT sauce (and it’s SERIOUSLY hot ) is “Dave’s Gourmet Insanity Sauce” …They do a few varieties - but I love the original. I mainly use it when making my killer Chilli - but always try a little dab neat - massive Endorphin rush from that one - Hurts so good!
Good question, as an aside my choice of oil varies: ordinary olive or rape seed.
I like it for dipping, but also as a base for tossing pasta.
As for other uses for chillis, I like to soak them in Sherry and use it as part of a Bloody Mary mix.
Wow. There’s a whole thread right there “The Ultimate Bloody Mary” …I have my own recipe of course. That’s an interesting tip though - I do use Sherry (Fino) just to bring the sweetness back in - so I might give that a go.
I don’t often deviate from Worcestershire Sauce on Cheese on Toast - but yes - would definitely work well!
I actually stole Pret’s recipe for a cheese and ham toastie - bread lightly buttered on the outside, Mayo and English mustard mixed (which is the secret) ham, cheese, ground black pepper… Into the Breville. Heaven.
Very very hot with a whole load of flavour.
Franks red hot is very nice, then I looked at the salt content. Nearly gave me a heart attack as its 3 times more salty than any other hot sauce. Probably why it’s so nice.
Unfortunately many are just heat,salt and vinegar with not much else for flavour.
I’ve made my own a few times.
Blended up a handful of those large chillies with a skinned and cored apple for body.
Along with a handful of whatever hottest chillies you can handle - I’ve used naga as I really like it’s fruity flavour. Some garlic. Salt - I’ve also used anchovies.
In a pan with Apple cider vinegar and brown sugar - I’ve used treacle. Then lightly simmer to reduce.
Here you can try whatever to tweak it. Then put in a container to keep in the fridge to 2 weeks
Once you’ve made your own you won’t want to buy any.
I’m going through a harissa phase at the moment. There’s always something marinating in it in the fridge.
