I was sent a Hot & Spicy Assortment of Cottage Delight sauces and chutneys, each coming in their own 40ml glass jar – a great gift for anyone who likes their condiments and hot sauces.
First up is the Cottage Delight Mexican Hot & Sweet Jalapeño Sauce which is an almost translucent, lime colour sauce with flecks of green jalapeño throughout the sauce.
On tasting, the sauce has a fresh, fruity jalapeno flavour with slight bitterness from the chilli pepper. A delightful sweet and sour flavour, and a small amount of heat that leaves a warming heat in the mouth. This is a very sweet sauce (as the name suggests), however the acidic kick prevents it from being sickly.
Cottage Delight Mexican Hot & Sweet Jalapeño Sauce is a nice tasting sauce, but I’m not so keen on the jammy, sticky consistency. A brilliant sauce for dipping chips or serving on burgers, however when I had it with eggs it was a little too sweet.
