Here’s our list of the hottest food at the Brisbane Ekka. And by hottest, I don’t mean trendy. I mean made with red hot chilli – think habanero and jalapeno.
Country Harvest – 4 Very Hot Chilli Products
Country Harvest has a dedicated range of products called Chilli Harvest which includes 14 delicious sauces, pastes, chutneys, pickles and salsas. They are handmade in Maleny from local ingredients.
Crocodile Bite Habanero sauce which takes 2 minutes to reach its hottest point. It’s named because”It’s like a crocodile coming back to bit you, it has more flavour than expected in a sauce as hot as this!” A few drops are all you will need.
Their Australian Bush Fire Sauce matches Habanero chilli with a smoked flavour. This gives you a semi-sweet and spicy flavours perfect for BBQs.
Look out for Habanero Salsa, Jalapeno Gourmet Sauce and Chilli Paste and lots of other milder options including the best selling Date and Chilli Chutney.
