WIN CHILLI FUDGE
(before Phil eats it all!)
10 x 200g bags to give away
Was 5 but we've increased it to 10!
These are twice as big as our usual bags!
Our chilli fudge is really popular at markets. It is traditionally crumbly fudge with a kick of chilli.
We use our home grown dried Dorset Naga chillies to give this fudge some attitude!
It is hot but not overpowering and works really well. The clotted cream fudge made for us by the lovely Roly's of Sidmouth using traditional ingredients and most importantly no nasty Palm-oil!

Great Stuff - John Shepherd - 23/10/2011 13:44:26
Nearly polished off the fudge in one go – took a lot of restraint to close the bag up again. It’s great stuff. Cheers,John

More about the Dorset Naga
The Dorset Naga was developed by Seaspring Nursery at West Bexington, Dorset. It is one of the worlds hottest chillies.
Its scorching heat is indescribable, and combined with a distinctive fruity flavour, this chilli will give you an incredible eating experience; but must always be treated with the utmost respect.
The wrinkled, wedge-shaped fruit ripen from green to red, and can be harvested at either stage of maturity. They can be up to 2 to 3 cm wide at the shoulders and 4 to 5 cm long, and are produced on large, late maturing plants that need plenty of space to grow.
The pods accumulate on the bottoms of the plants. It is sometimes worth cutting back the foliage a little to allow the pods access to sunlight, so they can ripen quicker.
The heat rating of a Dorset Naga is around 800,000 to 1,000,000 scoville units.
In 2006, the BBC's Gardeners' World television programme ran a trial looking at several chilli varieties, including Dorset Naga. Heat levels were tested and the Dorset Naga came in at 1,598,227 Scoville Units, the hottest heat level ever recorded for a chilli pepper in the UK.
