Trees Can't Dance, African Hot Chilli Sauce

Post by Leif »

Made from peppers (30%), vinegar, onions, water, tomato, Garlic Habanero (2.5%), salt, tomato puree and sugar. It comes in a small 100ml bottle for about £2.50 so it is quite expensive. It is very tasty, a modest heat (I can eat a teaspoonful without problems), and not too salty or vinegary. But, it is expensive, and I happily use 1/3 of a bottle on a meal e.g. on a salad. A teaspoonful is not enough as it is not that hot. So I cannot justify buying this again. Shame, because it is good quality and tastes nice.

Anyway, I've just read that the company is closing, so there might be some bottles going cheap for a short while. The bottle I bought was on offer.

There are nice West Indian alternatives to Encona, such as Busha Browne, Baron, and Walkerswood, which are often sold in Asian shops for £1 to £2 a bottle. Don't pay the silly specialist shop prices.
