Caroline Reaper & Honey Chilli Sauce – Midnight 21

(7 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!

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.

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

      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.

      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.

    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!!!

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