Danny Balboa's Juice Head
Dan from Danny Balboa's gave me a call a couple of months ago wondering how he could be part of the ChilliBOM Red Box, once I tasted the sauces it was a no brainer this is definitely something very different in the world of hot sauce.
Dan has created a very different style of hot sauce, one that has grapes as the base ingredient! This is a chunky style sauce and the distinctive sweet and juicy aroma of grapes is definitely the first thing you can smell, but the addition of onions and tomatillos provide both a depth and a sharpness of flavour to balance that. The habanero is not a burning heat but, true to habanero’s form, there is a definite build up the more you eat.
The “cherry-on-top” for me in this hot sauce is the Szechuan pepper it gives the sauce an overall punchiness and complements the sweet grape flavour perfectly.
This hot sauce screams breakfast and a bacon and egg burger would be perfect.
