Carolina Reaper & Honey Chilli Sauce – Midnight 21

(18 customer reviews)

£4.95

Dark as Midnight, our newest sauce uses the world’s hottest chilli: the Carolina Reaper.  At up to 2.1m SHUs it’s nearly twice as hot as the naga or ghost chilli!

Thick, rich but not over-sweet, first up you get the silkiness of the honey, followed by a mellow hit of gently fried garlic, the tang of dark soy sauce and rice wine vinegar, then an almost impercetible build of heat from the Carolina Reapers.  This sticky sauce makes the perfect marinade for all types of dishes, an indispensable addition to stir fries or pulled pork recipes, or – well, use your imagination…

Dark as Midnight, our newest sauce uses the world’s hottest chilli: the Carolina Reaper.  At up to 2.1m SHUs it’s nearly twice as hot as the naga or ghost chilli!

Thick, rich but not over-sweet, first up you get the silkiness of the honey, followed by a mellow hit of gently fried garlic, the tang of dark soy sauce and rice wine vinegar, then an almost impercetible build of heat from the Carolina Reapers.  This sticky sauce makes the perfect marinade for all types of dishes, an indispensable addition to stir fries or pulled pork recipes, or – well, use your imagination…

So yeah, it’s a hot one; one of our hottest yet not the hottest.  How come?  Well, like all of our sauces, taste has to be the overriding factor.  Use too many Reapers and all you’ll be thinking is “Who drove that nail through my tongue?”  Besides, it was all too predictable to make a crazy hot sauce from the world’s hottest chilli.  What we’ve created here is a showcase of what can be done with a really hot chilli, not what everyone assumes has to be done.

Still hot though but by god it’s delicious!

    Fantastic taste, the sweetness of the honey masks the chilli bite…… almost! Great with everything and very moorish.

    Amazing on barbecued meats and fish.

  3. Kev S (verified owner)

    The best sauce out there. I literally use it on everything!!

    • Tim Chapman

      Thanks, Kevin. Took a looooong time to get right that sauce so it means a lot that you took the time out to say that.

    Absolutely fantastic! I tried this at the Essex food show last year and bought a bottle there & then. As the reviews above say, it goes with loads of stuff so it gets used a lot & I’ve had to buy some more. It’s seriously hot, but that honey sweetness is so good… 🙂

    This sauce is so different to any sauce I’ve had before and it’s special. Lovely on seared tuna. It’s hot, but not stupid hot, so it doesn’t kill the flavours.

    I make hot sauces every year, but wouldn’t know how to get even started with this one.

    • Tim Chapman

      Cheers bud! Although it’s based on a simple concept with minimal ingredients, this sauce took ages to get right! I’m now off to get me some tuna steaks.

    Fantastic sauce that improves every dish. A must have for everyone

    • Tim Chapman

      Cheers Will!

    Every year I meet ECCC at the Royal Norfolk Show and try their products. I can tolerate extremely spicy food and most chilli sauces are not for me as they are not hot enough, or they are hot enough but do not have a special taste. Caroline Reaper & Honey Chilli Sauce is THE BEST chilli sauce I have ever tasted. For me it is not particularly hot, but hot enough to have my taste buds activated, and the taste is awesome. Mix this sauce with Greek Joghurt and put on a jacket potato!!! Well, this year the Royal Norfolk Show is not going to happen, and I needed a treat. Thank goodness for the fast delivery service! I can only recommend ECCC 100%, and I am looking forward to meeting you guys again at the Royal Norfolk Show in 2021!!!

    • Tim Chapman

      Ah, thanks Rachel, that;s really made our day! Hopefully see you next year!

    I ordered some more of this excellent sauce after learning that the Ely Food and Drink festival wasn’t happening this year. I can’t thank Tim and the Team enough for their prompt delivery as I’ve been enjoying this sauce on almost everything since it arrived! Sweet and very spicy it’s hot enough for me to know about it with an excellent flavour. I’ll definitely be ordering more again soon as it’s fast become one of my favourites

    • Tim Chapman

      Wow! Thanks Kelly. That’s really kind of you to say so!

    Amazing hot sauce. I use it on everything. The sweetness and heat is crafted to perfection. So happy that I tried the products in food festival! Now just keep ordering, all range of products are very tasty and for all heat levels. Recommend to try!

    • Tim Chapman

      Thanks bud! That’s really kind of you to say so!

  11. Hayley

    Delicious sauces, perfect for BBQ’s! Will be buying again

    • Tim Chapman

      Thanks, Hayley!

  12. Peter Hull

    Sweet without being too much so. Hot without too much pain. Fruity as all-get-out and hints of blackstrap. A new pantry staple!

    • Tim Chapman

      Cheers, Peter!

  13. Liam Lawler

    This is probably the most delicious chilli sauce I have every tasted. My colleague at work bought some at a show and let me try some.. now I’m putting it on everything! I love it. So much flavour with a real kick

    • Tim Chapman

      Cheers, Liam! It’s probably my favourite too!

  14. Andy M (verified owner)

    Amazing sauce! I first purchased this from an Xmas fair and I just had to get some more! Not much is needed each time (for my tastebuds anyway!) so the bottle will last a while… although I now want it on everything 🙂

    • Tim Chapman

      Ha! Thanks. Andy!

  15. Simon (verified owner)

    Without a doubt this is the best chilli sauce I have tried. You must give this a try .

    • Tim Chapman

      Wow! Thanks, Simon!

  16. Rob (verified owner)

    Personally I am not a fan of hot sauce, I bought it for my wife who adores its sweetness and chilli punch. This appears to be a growing addiction for her and she told me to give a “full 5 stars for sure”.

    Originally I bought her a mix pack which she enjoyed but the reaper here is her absolute favourite and now goes on pretty much everything that comes out of the kitchen.

    Also special thanks for speedy dispatch of order during this current situation so many thanks Tim for your work, will be back for more soon I am sure!

    • Tim Chapman

      Thank you, Rob – that’s very kind of you – and your wife is clearly a lady of great taste!

    We first bought this from Chatsworth, now order online, by far nicer than any other we have tried. Excellent product and service.

    • Tim Chapman

      Thank you, Clare! That’s really kind of you!

    First bought this at a food festival last year and now it’s a staple in my house. Not for the faint-hearted but if you can stand the heat, the flavour is delicious.

    • Tim Chapman

      Thanks, Sam!
