    Tried the Carolina Reaper on scrambled eggs last night.
    Added it in before cooking and it lost a lot of the flavour. Must try adding it on the plate next.

    I found the same, a good dollop in the pizza sauce tasted great but after cooking the pizza I felt very little heat.

    Lol! People.

    Hot sauce is a condiment.

    Serve at the table.

    Or.....

    Each to their own;)

    I personally use it to add a kick to recipes or use it separately if others don't care too much for hot food.

    picked up these three this morning, I've had the lava before and it's lovely, the sahara isn't really a hot sauce as there is no chilli in it at all, but it tastes lovely.

    Any posters with experience of this Amazon brand?

    I've been meaning to get some of the El Yucateco sauces. Thanks for the recommendation!

    the chipotle reminds me of standard brown sauce, with added heat and smokiness, if that makes sense.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,875 Mod ✭✭✭✭igCorcaigh


    Mr Bells have assured me that they will be getting Valentina hot sauce in soon.

    Looking forward to getting my hands on it!

    put an order in with Mic this week, got Inferno and Trouble in Trinidad, Inferno Jnr and they threw in a bottle of Inferno Light.

    I had a little dab of the TiT and wow it's hot


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,875 Mod ✭✭✭✭igCorcaigh


    I just tasted a smidgeon of this new one... La Anita extra hot.

    Khaki colour, a thick texture, flavourful (lots of lemony and salty tastes) and a very sharp habanero burn.
    Very good!

    EDIT: But possibly too hot for me, at least for regular use?
    Quite an after sting on the tongue, rather than the slow build... I'll see how it goes with food.

    Mic's has 30% off at the moment

    Sriracha is still the most versatile and simplest hot sauce.

    Mix 50/50 with mayo or ketchup to get hot mayo / hot ketchup.

    Squirt it onto any pizza to give the pizza a kick

    Put it on eggs to kick start your day.

    Add it to wraps and sandwiches to add heat.

    And of course, add it to anything you are cooking.

    I pick it up in Musgrave's - pack 12 big 785ml for €41

    Not a hot sauce, but a naga chilli pickle. I love this stuff. Very hot!

    Got some in bridge street a while back. Blows the head off ya! And very nice.

    By the way I tried the rose Harissa, very curry like. Gone back to regular Harissa. Different brands may vary.
    And the dry Harissa in Dunnes is great sprinkled on pizza.

    And finally, I've settled on the Carolina Reaper with black garlic. Yum, not using the Micks naga knockdown or voodoo any more. The Carolina is so much nicer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,504 ✭✭✭ArtyC


    That naga is my ultimate fave. The place I buy said they were stopping production of it though . Wonder any truth in that


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,981 ✭✭✭Hodors Appletart


    Oh I got a selection from Mic's for Father's Day last week.

    It had
    • Inferno Extreme
    • Emerald Jalapeno
    • Dam Hot Wing Sauce
    • Chilli BBQ
    • Sweet Chilli

    I've been using the Emerald Jalapeno on a few things and I really like it. I haven't opened the Inferno Extreme because I'm currently using Inferno and Trouble in Trinidad so no need to open it yet.

    I made slow cooker pork ribs brushed with the Chilli BBQ, then slathered most of the rest of the bottle onto them to finish in the oven and they were totally devoured by three hungry men watching football. It was incredible.

    I haven't used the wing sauce of the sweet chilli yet either.

    Making Carolina Reaper Blueberry sauce today. Will report back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,684 ✭✭✭✭Charlie19


    Just looking at Mics Chilli website and voodoo reaper is €15, I got a delivery there last year and I bought around 4 or 5 bottles of various sauces including the voodoo reaper but there is no way I would of even paid €10 for one sauce, I think my total order might of been just over €20.

    Has their prices went up that dramatically over the space of 15 months or so?

    They're sold out of the chilli bbq at the moment so I might just try Avoca or one of the other stockists.

    I ordered stuff 1st july 2020 they have gone up by about 50% since then, 3.50 / 5.00 for the normal and extreme, sweet chilli and chilli bbq 4.20 / 6.00 and the naga knockdown was 6.30 now 9.00.

    Just thinking about it now, 3.50 was an absolute bargain, 5.00 is ok by me when I compare it to things like rebel or encona or Cholula.

    5 or 6 quid is ok for a bottle of sauce but I'll not buying when it gone into double figures.

    Just tried Avoca for the Chilli Bbq but no joy, there must be a massive demand for it. I did get the Damn Hot Wing sauce so must give that a try over the weekend.

    Picado seem to have it, if you are dublin based, delivery is a bit steep unless you are ordering a few things. (never a bad time to get some achiote paste and chipotle in adobo sauce)

    Cheers for that, I'll pop in tomorrow and grab a couple of bottles and it's beside the Aprille chipper, their food was fab back in the day.

    At 3am after a load of pints!

    Picado is excellent. Really good sauces et al and Masa flour. Tacos with hot sauce for dinner tomorrow!

    Great call! I bought that after watching a recipe from "Al's Kitchen" on YouTube. Very versatile ingredient!!

    Also, two nice sauces I had recently were the Smokin' Bones spicy and the Memphis sauces they provide with their meal boxes.
    Not overly hot but very nice flavours with a bit of kick.

    achiote paste

    Oh! Is achiote paste worth trying?
    What is it like?

    I was disappointed with the dried Epazote herb that I got a while back from Mr Bells here in Cork. Didn't really taste of much.

    Was that the Belazu rose harissa? I loved that. Don't know of any other brand.
    I will definitely look out for the Dunnes dry harissa. Thanks!
