    Chilli Chipotle Ground

    Product description

    Chilli Chipotle Ground peppers are smoked, dried Jalapeño chiles. They appeared when the Aztecs used to add dried chilli to food as a preservation method. They have a rich smokey flavour, with nutty, leathery notes that blend well with other strong flavours. Chipotle flavouring is widely used throughout Mexico, the United States and more recently in Australia. It can be used in soups, stews and casseroles. It also has a variety of health benefits to defend against intestinal diseases and aid in weight loss. The ground form is easier to use but is not as strong as using the whole smoked chipotle chillies.

    Chilli Birds Eye Whole

    Product Description

    The bird’s eye chilli is one of Thailand’s hottest varieties of chillies. They are picked at peak maturity then dried in their whole form to lock in full flavour and heat. Characteristic of the Thai sense of humour, the hottest of these chillies is called park kid noon, which literally means “mouse droppings.” This particular variety is known as Bird’s Eye chillies, or Bird peppers, simply because looking at one from the stem-end can appear like the eye of a bird. When they are fully mature, they turn red. They are a variety of Capsicum frutescens and were originally the chilli used in Sriracha sauce.
