Hot Sauce Recipe

Scottish Food Recipes

I only really use bottled hot sauce during the winter when good chillies are harder to find. This is the recipe I use most at home. It could be described as a salsa. It involves no cooking and is ready in around 15 minutes. Many of the delicate flavours and temperatures of hotter chillies are lost during cooking.
The aromas and nutrition of good chillies begin to oxidise the minute the chill is cut open.
  • 200g Scotch Bonnet/Caribbean/Habanero peppers
  • 150 ml Aged brown rice vinegar
  • 2 spring onions
  • half teaspoon salt/palm sugar
  • squeeze of lime 

  1. The chillies should be washed and de-seeded, and then along with spring onions chopped very fine (brunoise, cubes of about 3 mm or less)
  2. Dissolve the salt and sugar in the vinegar and lime.
  3. Mix together with chillies. Leave covered while flavours infuse.

The heat can be adjusted by adding more palm sugar. The sauce will last 3-5 days at room temperature, flavour decreases as days pass, the chillies begin to break down. Can be added as a final seasoning to soups and stews.

Papa Djabs update

Papa Djabs continues making fine quality extra hot sauces, our only change this year is that in our quest for the best and most consistent hot sauce we will be producing one batch of sauce per year. We have found that seasonal pepper variations make subtle changes to the sauce, in colour, heat and flavour. Now we are able to buy peppers once a year at a specific period in the chilli's growth, when capsaicin levels are highest and pepper has more savoury acidity. So we can now produce a hot sauce that is characteristic of a year rather than season. Our sauces will be available in numbered annual editions at the same price.

As well as working on our BBQ hot sauce, (each of our sauces took a year to complete, BBQ is taking longer).

We are also experimenting in the lab with micro brewing. In particular beer made without using animal products. Made from scratch we are looking at ways to make gourmet beer of a high quality and purity to create a notable beer rather than the standard intoxicant, this may soon be available to buy.

Healthy Benefits of Chilli

Hot Sauce, Chilli Sauce, Hot Recipes, Hot Chillies, Hot Pepper Sauce

1. Chillies contain lots of Vitamin C.
The chillies you use to spice up your foods, provide a huge amount of Vitamin C.  Equal to to amounts found in citrus fruits.

2. Chilli can help weight loss.
The capsaicin found in the chillies can increase your metabolic rate simply by raising your bodily heat production.  Even red peppers can increase meta cycle for up to 20 minutes after consumption.

3. Chilli can improve your mood
The heat experienced when eating chillies begins endorphin and serotonin release, both of which ease your mood.  The capsaicin in the peppers is responsible for increasing the serotonin and endorphins.  These two hormones raise your mood levels so you can actually feel happier just by eating a chilli.

4. Chilli can help boost your immune system.
Chillies are high in Vitamin A, which can naturally boost your immune system.  The more chillies you use in your food, the more Vitamin A you are putting into your body.  The boost to your immune system from the Vitamin A is beneficial during the winter cold months and flu season.

5. Chilli can help clear symptoms of cold and flu.
The capsaicin in chilli stimulate mucous secretions to help clear mucous from your stuffy nose.  The next time you feel a cold coming on, prepare a big pot of hot chilli to help you breathe easier.  It will help keep you warm too.
