I've had a couple of Pain Is Good sauces in the past and always remember that they tasted really fresh and almost homemade, so I was really looking forward to this Jalapeno Harissa.
I wouldn't normally buy mustard based sauces since I'm not a fan of the hot yellow seed, but this one caught my eye and I'm ever so pleased I did a couple of reasons. First of all, this sauce is bloody delicious. And secondly, I've opened up to mustard in general, and I'm really starting to like it with more and more foods.
Tabasco have got to be one of the biggest hot sauce brands out there right? I've always been surprised by how little they've expanded their product range, so I was not surprised to see this Tabasco Sweet Chipotle & Cola Sauce & Marinade in my local Sainsbury's.
I'm all up for spending a couple of hours in the kitchen coming up with a crafted chilli sauce recipe, but sometimes you want to come up with something quick and that will work every time.
Making your own hot sauce or chilli sauce is extremely rewarding since you are in control of the heat, flavour, consistency, and sometimes colour.
