Peppery Sauces Add Kick to Your Plate

Another winner from the Brighton Vegfest was Gifty’s Peppery Sauces.  I liked them so much I bought some!  That’s rare for me.  The only other prepared food product that’s grabbed my money is Smorl’s Houmous which I wrote about here.

Gifty mixes fresh fruit and vegetables with fresh peppers to make the kind of sauces you’ll use sparingly to add a punch to whatever you’re eating.

Red Hot, Cucumber, Pineapple, Apple, Cranberry and her latest – Carrot– mixed with mixed hot peppers, and other ingredients specific to each flavor – all finely chopped, to give the sauce a coarse texture rather than a smooth blend.

It’s the kind of thing you might add to a cheese and onion sandwich, falafel pita, or a wrap.  Or maybe you’d put a dab on the side of your plate to replace horseradish or hot mustard.  They’d also work great with sushi, or enchiladas, or to add an extra bite to nachos. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination and taste for zest.

My faves are the Cranberry and Cucumber.  They both have enough flavor to cut through the pepper.  The others are for me uninteresting.  The apple, too vingary, and the carrot, too peppery – overpowering the other ingredients.

Currently delivery by mail order to U.K. addresses.

Maybe I’ll figure out my own recipe.  If I do, I’ll let you know.

  1. Your vegfest sounds brill. Would love one of those.

    I’ve got a recipe on the blog for some chilli sauce, but they are from someone in Texas, so they are pretty hot. I think they are tomatoes, garlic, chillis, cilantro and lime. Or something like that. Incredibly easy to make though.

      Yeah, the Vegfest was amazing! It was my first time going to a veg food festival. I wish I’d had time to attend the cooking lessons and talks. I’ll check that recipe on your blog – sounds chunky where as Gifty’s are quite fine.

    Hi Alison, it was such a pleasure meeting you last weekend. You had such a buzz about you which helped lift my spirit in spite of the rain on Saturday, and then you came back to buy from me on Sunday! Now these kind comments on your blog have just blown me away, thank you so much!!! I am going to tweak the carrot sauce and I hope next time you taste it you will fall in love with it too! I love your site, keep blogging! Gifty

    Meal planning is my weakness. I’m proud that I planned this meal far enough in advance to take the home made baked beans out of the freezer to defrost. Did that this morning.  Wanted them to add to yesterday’s left-overs:…Read more ›
