Culley's Ghost Chilli Bhut Jolokia Hot Sauce
I have been enjoying Culley's Hot Sauces for a few years now and got to try some of their range again at the 2017 Herb & Chilli Festival in Wandin, Victoria. This one was a stand out for me because it reminded me of a tomato chutney but the weird thing is there are no tomatoes!
The red bell peppers, which make up the base of the sauce, add an overall sweetness that is helped along by onions, garlic, lemon and ginger, to present it more like a salsa than a hot sauce. You are quickly reminded it is not a salsa, because the heat from the locally NZ grown Bhut Jolokia’s delivers a strong instant heat that then leaves a nice lingering all-over burn.
It is no surprise that this is great in place of a salsa or tomato chutney on Mexican food or as a dipping sauce with fresh cooked prawns.
