Scotch Bonnet Sweet Spicy Relish by @thechillijamman. I’ve never been a fan of relish in the past, usually they are too sweet for my taste, but The Chilli Jam Man has won me over with this belter. The relish actually has a smooth jam like consistency, and a wonderful cherry red colour. Deliciously sweet, but balanced well with the savoury tomato and red win vinegar. The heat is medium and warms the mouth for a while, really nicely done. The fresh chilli comes through well, and combines with garlic to give a lovely fruity, almost black cherry flavour. This relish goes so so so well in cheese sandwiches, I don’t think I could eat one without it from now on! Also goes great on grilled meats and vegetables. Thank you Chilli Jam Man for restoring my faith in relish, this beautifully sweet, fruity, chilli pot of joy is now always at the front of my cupboard… and my mind! Supurb.

That ladies and gentlemen is one beautiful hand painted bottle of sauce. SOUR JERK by @sourjerk. This sauce contains 51% Mango, Scotch Bonnets, Carrots, and Lime among other ingredients, and is really something quite unique. An extremely fresh tasting sauce, it feels like it’s just come out of a juice blender! Lovely thick creamy mango with some lime acidity, and strong garlic comes through at first. Stinging Scotch Bonnets heat follows and helps balance the subtle sweetness of the mango. A tropical island tasting sauce that has an addictive heat and is perfectly balanced between savoury & sweetness. The consistency is smoothie like, runny yet thick, and the sauce is beautiful gold peach colour. It has to be first bottle of chilli sauce I’ve opened with bottle opener! This is outstanding sauce, and congratulations @sourjerk for producing something so well crafted, and goddamn tasty! Rating: the highest 5/5 I’ve given yet.

A dark and peppery barbecue sauce with a Jerk twist, this sauce is packed with Jamaican flavour and fairly mild heat. Strong tomato ketchup flavour at first, but then the smokey Jerk taste comes through well and provides a nice balance to the sweetness. Nice lip stinging heat from the Habanero, but nothing serious and this heat is dulled when added to food. The strong black pepper and allspice really stays with you and provides good depth to what could have been an average bbq sauce. Goes great on a hot sizzling sausage, and fantastic on chicken and rice. Reggae Reggae sauce is still the King of Jerk BBQ sauces in my opinion, but this effort by Encona fairs well and only cost me £1! Rating: 4⃣/5⃣
Buffalo Sauce by @meatlust. A thick, sticky, glossy sauce that has a fantastic bright neon-orange colour. A nice acidic heat from the cayenne, followed by a very sweet, caramel buttery flavour. It’s certainly something different, but I’m just not liking the combination of the butter flavour (comes from added butter powder) and the high sweetness. Sorry guys, I really don’t like this one, it’s far too sickly for me, and I’ve not found a use for it that I like. If the butter flavour was toned down I think it would be much nicer, it just tastes a bit artificial to me. However I think some people may really like this sauce, so I would say it’s worth a try if you like something sweeter. 4/10.
