It’s been busy here in the Pepper Jar Creations kitchen, with loads of great things happening this year.
To celebrate, I’ve slashed the prices across my whole range, and put a huge discount on special guest sauce – Reaper’s Relish.

Jump to shop here

So what am I celebrating?

Following last year’s awesome 1-Star Great Taste Award from the Guild of Fine Food for my Smokin’ BBQ Sauce, this year I entered the unique Scorched Onion Sauce, and it collected a much-coveted 2-Star Great Taste Award!
To put some context on that – over 14,000 products get entered each year, and fewer than 10% achieve a 2-Star accolade!! I’m delighted – it’s such a superb flavour. Have you tried it yet? Click here to add it to your basket.

In March this year, I launched the sublime HOT ROX Sauce, a sweet, smooth Scotch Bonnet sauce laced with aromatic flavours. You guys are loving it! It is fast-becoming my most popular product. Who knows…. another bottled Pepper Jar flavour is already in my mind, so keep a lookout for some more info on that in the New Year. In the meantime, keep enjoying Hot Rox – take advantage of it’s sale price by clicking here!

I’m all for supporting local/small business. This year I’ve added my products to more local retailers and I have more to come in the months ahead. I’m also really proud to be shirt sponsor for my local football club at grass roots level. The money is so important to help get these kids outdoors, playing sport, socialising, learning new skills and having fun. It takes a lot of time and selfless effort by those who work with these children – mostly voluntarily – and the funds from sponsorship are well spent on equipment and facilities to give the children the most enjoyable time as they develop their skills and build new friendships.

As the nights draw in, it’s hard to ignore that we’re coming to the tail-end of 2021. And I’ve had lots of customers asking if I’ll be making more of the delicious Winter Sauce. Good news folks – it is back in stock right NOW. If you haven’t tried it yet, add it to your basket here, then be prepared to sing Christmas carols and get the tinsel out because this sauce is quite simply the taste of Christmas in a jar. Beautiful warm winter spices, sweet and fruity, it’s a must-have for anyone who loves cheeses, cold meats and cosy fires. It makes a lovely little gift idea too – Check it out here.

I’ve got lots of markets and events booked in leading up ’til Christmas, so be sure to follow me on my Instagram (@pepper.jar) and Facebook pages to keep up to date. Your support really is genuinely humbling, I honestly feel blessed with every order that comes through. The superb reactions I get from my customers is my motivation to keep going, the brilliant reviews and Great Taste Awards are a nice added bonus.

Thank you all.

Chilli Fudge Recipe

This has the ‘Marmite’ effect, you’ll either love it – or not, but either way it’ll play havoc with your taste buds.

I’d been wanting to try making chilli fudge for a while, and just happened to stumble across a super-quick method of ‘sensible’ fudge this week on tik-tok, and so I added my chilli twist to it. (insert evil laugh)

The end result plays with your mind. You get a super sweet, fudgy, caramelly, melty treat, which dissolves away to leave a little burning poo on your tongue. It’ll only take you about 10 mins to make once you’ve gathered your ingreds, and if you drop the chilli, its a good one to make with the kids.

Ingredients:
1 tin condensed milk
120g unsalted butter
250g light brown sugar
270g white chocolate
1/4tsp salt
25g scotch bonnet (+/- to suit your taste), blitzed in a blender
1/2 tsp of vanilla essence

Method:
On a low heat, stir the condensed milk, butter and sugar until melted.
Turn heat up to med/high and continue stirring until it bubbles and thickens. Take care not to burn it.
Turn the heat off, add white chocolate, salt, vanilla and chilli and stir until thoroughly combined and smooth.
Pour into a lined 8×8 tin and chill in the fridge for minimum of 4 hrs.
It should yield about a 700g slab of fudge.
Cut into cubes and enjoy… or offer to playground bullies*

*actually, don’t.

New Product Launch

Get Your Rox Off

Like new vinyl from your favourite rock band, it’s been a long wait. But Pepper Jar is so proud of its latest hot sauce.

Presenting… HOT ROX.

HOT ROX is a no nonsense Scotch Bonnet sauce. And it is hot.
Taste-wise, it’s different from the other sauces in the PJ range, because of its simplicity – and its heat level.
Visually, its different because HOT ROX is the first sauce from Pepper Jar that breaks the ‘jar’ model, instead being presented in a 150ml bottle. But make no mistake, the flavour profile is very Pepper Jar.

The kick-ass heat is the headliner, while the balance of spices, herbs, sugars and seasoning are the ultimate support act.
You’ll use HOT ROX on everything, every day. It’s a must-have cupboard condiment that you’ll slap on salads, sandwiches, kebabs, fried chicken, chips, BBQ’s…. you name it, HOT ROX is all over it.

”While my Original Hot Sauce delivers a punch from the Bhut Jolokia – and has a huge fan base of it’s own – I wanted to produce something powerful using my favourite pepper of them all – the Scotch Bonnet. HOT ROX does just that, and the screaming burn is brilliantly supported by superb flavours”

Give HOT ROX a try, its available here right NOW!! Be among the front row and grab yourself a bottle from the very first batch.

Buy HOT ROX here now.

Crispy Hot Wings

Crispy and spicy outside with perfectly soft meat

The trick for these is to get the wings as dry as possible before cooking. I salted these to extract the moisture, put them on absorbent paper in the fridge for a few hours, patted dry then repeated, replacing with clean absorbent paper. Pat dry, then coat in the dry rub of your choice (my recipe is below) and put back in the fridge overnight, in a bowl covered with clingfilm. The next tip is to use a very hot oven. Pre heat to 220 degrees. Use a flat baking tray lined with foil, and place a wire rack on top. Sit the wings on the rack. Bake for 25 mins in the top half of the oven, then turn wings over and bake for another 20 mins.

While the wings are cooking, I crisped up some finely chopped chorizo (about a minute in the microwave), melted some butter and added it to a large bowl with my ORIGINAL HOT SAUCE & the chorizo. Take the cooked wings out of the oven and toss in this butter mix before serving. Garnish with chopped chive, chilli flakes, sesame seed and fresh parsley.

For the dry rub, I used:

smoked paprika, salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, ginger, cumin & mustard.

Enjoy.

note: These would be just as nice with a cool garlic mayo dip. (Add a teaspoon of my GARLIC SAUCE to 4 tsp of light mayo).

Smokin’ BBQ picks up Great Taste Award

I’m hugely proud to announce that my Smokin BBQ Sauce has collected a major honour awarded by the Guild Of Fine Food. This latest recognition is added to the merits it achieved from the Cheese And Chilli Festivals in 2019.
I only entered this one product into the Great Taste Awards following such good feedback from foodies and reviewers throughout this year. There were over 12,000 entrants and the judging process is notoriously meticulous, so it is with immense pride that I received the notification this week that my sauce was a winner.

If you haven’t tried it yet, you can pick it up here, and please do let me know what you think.

Its uses are a limited as your imagination – I dip chips and raw veg into it, smother it on burgers, coat it over cooked ribs, and recently made an awesome chilli-dog in puff pastry with a Smokin BBQ coating.

Big congrats to all the other Great Taste Winners, I’m delighted to be part of that club.
