So I love chilli’s, and hot sauces are a staple for me. I really enjoy starting the day with some eggs drizzled with a kicking hot sauce, but I have never categorized myself as a chilli head. Maybe I’m in denial.
Anyhow, my wife returned from taking number 1 son to a Rugby tournament this weekend, and brought me home some Mega Death sauce, one of the range of Hot Sauces offered by Blair’s (out of Ascot Vale in Victoria).
I can confirm, it’s hot. Very hot. In fact, here’s hot potent it is:
I dabbed a drop onto my finger to taste it, and it performed as you would expect, the burn was immediate, then blossomed into something more. It might not have been the hottest I have tried, but as a measure of it’s flavour (yes there was one mixed in with the tongue numbing heat), I was immediately inspired to come up with some recipes for the sauce in various concentrations. But I digress.
The next morning, despite eating a full meal of Spag Bol and Salad, and taking a nice hot shower, I rubbed my eye with the offending finger…it still burned. That’s how well this sauce lingers.
Anyway, the important this is that this is a great hot sauce. Not just the searing heat, but the great blend of fruitiness, smokiness from chipotle’s, and spice gives this a delicious palette.
Here is their website, so check them out, I can really recommend the Mega Death (it’s the only one I’ve tried).
In the mean time, what is your favourite recipe that has hot sauce as an ingredient?
