DARTMOOR CHILLI FARM
Blackcurrant chilli sauce
Part of our fruit sauce collection, this is a limited edition sauce made with freshly hand picked blackcurrants and Aji benito chillies (both picked at the farm) Containing over 55% blackcurrants, this has a really fruity flavour. You can smell the blackcurrants as you open the bottle. It is a bit different to all other sauces on the market.
We were the first to make a blackcurrant chilli sauce as far as we know and it is really popular with our customers at markets.
(Made with fresh Aji Benito chillies which have a wonderful juicy & crisp flavour) Try it with dishes which require a clean crisp taste to balance the flavours, such as a bread & butter pudding and pancakes. Also fantastic drizzled over a cheesecake. We've heard it is good on fatty meats such as duck and lamb also.
(It goes really really well with vanilla cheesecake!)

Why Blackcurrants ... Blackcurrants are a new "superfood". Recent research has shown that the blackcurrant is “…bursting with more health-promoting antioxidants than most other vegetable and fruits, including blueberries…” Not only do they contain more vitamin C 'weight for weight' than a fresh orange, they are also packed with high levels of vitamins too. Research has also shown that these high levels of potent antioxidants have beneficial effects against a range of illnesses and conditions including heat disease, Alzheimers and the super-bug MRSA. Blackcurrants also contain several rare nutrients, like GLA ( Gamma Linoleic Acid, a very rare Omega-6 essential fatty acid) and MAOI (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors). The high levels of anthocyanins that are found in blackcurrants are also shown to be beneficial in warding off ailments including heart disease, cancer, again - Alzheimers disease (2006 Tufts University Study), diabetes and high blood pressure. But using blackcurrants to treat illness isn't a new phenomenon as they been used since the middle-ages to treat bladder stones, liver disorders, coughs, chest ailments, urinary problems, and various skin conditions
