Our Moruga Brainstrain Chilli Jam won one star in the Great Taste Awards 2020. The judges said:
This smells fantastic – a real promise of what’s to come. Unmistakably fiery on the nose, it has rich fruit notes. The heat created with this product is fierce and a real challenge to the taste buds. The sugar hasn’t been over caramelised which can impart bitterness and detract overall. The colour and consistency are just right.
Its initial sweetness is quickly overtaken by rasping heat. There is an audience for this sort of thing, for sure. A fine delivery system for instant warmth – a really fiery flavour with an undercurrent of sweetness. The heat is actually quite pleasant and lingering after that initial shock, and the fruit of the chilli comes through and hangs around. For chilli fiends and heat junkies this would be a massive hit. Delicious as a condiment and equally good as a versatile ingredient (marinades or dips and sauces). A well made chilli jam that tastes homemade.
