Kaitaia Fire Chili Pepper Sauce
I discovered Kaitaia Fire on a trip to New Zealand about 5 years ago and have finally managed to get this stocked at ChilliBOM! All chillies are locally NZ grown in the "Winterless Far North" of Kaitaia, which is at the very North of the North Island of New Zealand. The chillies are mashed, salted and barrel-aged for a few years and then blended with vinegar to give this sauce it's very distinctiveness sharpness of both flavour and heat. The sharpness hits you instantly, and your mouth simultaneously reacts to the sour of the vinegar and the up-front heat from the chilli, the habanero then goes to work providing some longevity to that heat.
Kaitaia Fire can be used on everything, like pizza, fried chicken and kebabs but my all time favourite is for breakfast on a really big mushroom and tomato omelette with extra cheese.
