The Chilli Pepper Company Spices
Known for their chilli seeds and extreme hot sauces such as Naga Viper or 10 Minute Burn, The Chilli Pepper Company has decided to develop a range of spices to make experts squeal with delight. We currently only have two different types available but will soon be adding some more onto the site so watch this space!
What sets The Chilli Pepper Company apart from other spice suppliers is the willingness to push boundaries and offer spices seldom available to the general public such as Berbere Spice. A key ingredient in African cuisine and one that has been around for centuries, it is hard to find these specific spices all in one blend. This is a spice that we have come to use on a daily basis over the last few weeks and cannot stop experimenting with. The combination of Red Chillies, Fenugreek, Ginger Root, Coriander, Allspice, Cloves, Cardamom and Ajowan seeds (similar to parsley) form a unique fragrant mix that truly delights the senses from the moment you open the shaker. We love it mixed in meaty stews but it also really works sprinkled on a simple omelette or cheese or toast!
Although made with similar spices, The Chilli Pepper Company’s Indonesian Seven Seas Spice is a totally different kind of fragrance with a somewhat more subtle flavour that works wonderfully well with fish or mild-tasting dishes. The smell coming from the blend of coriander, cumin, celery seeds, cloves, red chillies, green cardamom and cassia bark (a close relative to cinnamon) is just exhilarating, especially when cooking although we also found the spice great when mixed in with dips such as mayonnaise or hummus.
The Chilli Pepper Company still have plenty of tricks up their sleeve so be sure to check the Devil’s Garden in a few days to see what other spicy goodies are offered.Read This Also :
