Scotch Bonnet Chilli, powder
£3.20 – £8.90
The Scotch Bonnet chilli is essential to Caribbean cooking, particularly Jamaican where it is used in jerk seasoning. Closely related to the similar looking habanero, the Scotch Bonnet certainly packs a punch and is probably the hottest chilli used on an everyday level. Here we offer it in powder form, making it quick and easy to use, and avoiding the streaming eyes and burning fingers which can be a result of using fresh Scotch Bonnets! This is another chilli which must be used in small doses unless you are a true chilli head, and it has plenty to offer flavour-wise, with a distinct fruitiness evident beneath the heat. It also combines well with other chillies, particularly the smoky varieties such as chipotle, and is a great place to start when making your own chilli sauce.
