Hot Drops - Sweet Chilli
There's nothing shallow about this sauce: it is built on a base of red peppers and real ginger, so it is real flavor, through and through.
Sweet Chilli is the soulmate of cheese: particularly soft, white cheeses like Camembert. It also does tremendous flavor-things with tomatoes, beef, smoked meats and fish... and duck and chicken and game-birds!
Try something different: Fry up chopped Chorizo, mushrooms, garlic and a chopped red onion. Combine with precooked rice and some grated Parmesan and Ginger & Chilli Hot drops to taste. Stuff some hollowed out big tomatoes and bake. Serve on fresh basil with more Ginger & Chilli Hot Drops (and a freshly baked Sourdough loaf!).

THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Ukuva iAfrica
Country: South Africa
Ukuva iAfrica was established in March 1996, when co-founders Nigel and Michael cooked up vast pots of Swazi, Zulu, Malawi and Umsobo Iyababa in the backyard of Nigel's bright pink house on Rose Street in the Bo-Kaap.
In Jan 2012 Turqle Trading adopted the Ukuva iAfrica brand.
Over the years, the collaboration continued as Turqle helped with the development of the sauces and contributed to spice blends, and early in 2012 the Ukuva sauces and spices were adopted into the Turqle Brands stable.
Turqle Trading is committed to Fair Trade by exporting fair and ethically traded foods from South Africa. The pepper in all Ukuva iAfrica products come from Fair Trade certified pepper producers.
