This is the second sauce I’ve tried from the Hot & Spicy Assortment of Cottage Delight sauces and chutneys I was sent recently. See my review of the Cottage Delight Mexican Hot & Sweet Jalapeño Sauce from the same pack.
Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce is a bright orange colour with flecks of red, a really attractive and natural looking sauce which has come from blending up the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet peppers.
On tasting, the sauce has a rich, citrusy chilli pepper taste with a high vinegar kick. The Habanero pepper really stands out here, and is matched perfectly with the fruity Scotch Bonnet pepper. The Cajun flavour comes from a slight hint of mustard, coupled with the fruity and zingy pepper taste – delicious!
I much prefer the runnier, vinegar based consistency of the Cajun sauce to the jammy Mexican Hot, I find that a sauce of this consistency is much more versatile and easier to eat in larger amounts.
Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce is a really tasty sauce and I would recommend this as a store-cupboard staple since it’s a sauce that has a pure Habanero and Scotch Bonnet flavour, but with a good amount of depth thanks to the Cajun finish.
