Sinai Gourmet Habanero Hot Sauces

June 16, 2017

    a close up of a bottleSinai Gourmet is a Montreal-based hot sauce company that I have been working with in production and sales for the past year. The founder, Laurence Isaac, has created the freshest possible hot sauces using only premium natural ingredients. In fact, the sauces are so fresh that they are actually a line of hot pepper coulis rather than sauces! A coulis is simply a puree of fresh natural ingredients like fruits, vegetables, herbs, and so on to create a base or a garnish to enhance the flavour of a dish.

    Sinai Gourmet’s sauces are all vinegar free, using freshly squeezed lime juice as a natural preservative instead. Virtually all hot sauces use vinegar as a preservative, which has the drawback of requiring a lot of sugar and salt to mask the strong vinegar taste, which then overpowers the natural taste of your food when you use them. But the great thing about using lime juice is that it’s so fresh tasting, you don’t need to mask it with sugar and salt. This not only makes for a healthier sauce, but it’s also a much better marinade than vinegar-based sauces, since the vinegar tends to cut the flavour of the meat or fish that you’re marinating. Lime juice, however, marries superbly well with anything you decide to marinate it with, enabling Sinai Gourmet sauces to truly blend in and enhance rather than overtaking and changing the natural taste of your food. The fresh cilantro in the sauce also adds a slight savoury herb taste that complements the taste of the fresh peppers.

     Sinai Gourmet sauces are handcrafted in small batches and are low sodium, gluten-free, non-GMO, nut-free, vegan, and free of any artificial ingredients. The product offering is an impressive range of delicious, all natural gourmet hot sauces, with a heat range from mild, to wild: Poblano, Jalapeno, Jwala, Cayenne, Habanero, Datil, Ghost, and the Carolina Reaper. All varieties, with the exception of the Carolina Reaper, are available in Original or Maple. The hint of sweetness from the pure Quebec maple syrup complements the heat of the sauce.

     At Chilly Chiles, there are a range of sample bottles for customers to try, so why not drop by one of our store locations for a taste of Sinai Gourmet’s delicious fresh heat! In the meantime, check out a couple of recipes here or here to whet your appetite that will hopefully inspire you to come and see us and pick up one of these sauces soon!

Until next time, Keep it spicy!

Clark + Hopkins Assam Hot Sauce

June 19, 2019

As seen on past seasons of Hot Ones, Assam was one of the favourites of the guests on the show! To me, there’s no mystery as to why. It’s an expertly crafted product which, to me, stands out among the total of 60 or so hot sauces I have in my fridge currently. It’s THAT GOOD!

Horrible after taste

This sauce gets two stars from me due to the horrible after taste but contains a crazy amount of heat. It feels hotter than some other sauces I have that are rated much higher in scovilles. I only bought this due to the "hot ones" show to see what the fuss was about. I think it was a mistake to add "natural pepper flavoring", tomato paste and some wrong spices that contribute to an icky after taste (not talking about heat).

Awesome

I stayed away from this sauce for a while but after watching "hot ones" my curiosity was peaked. I didn't find it as hot as some of the others that were rated lower in scoville units in their show line up. For the level of heat, I echo the comments already made. The makers of this sauce did an incredible job balancing heat with sharp flavors such as sun dried tomatoes needed to poke through. Love this sauce.

OMG The ingredients

The stuff they squeeze into this little bottle, likely why it costs a lot more. I agree with the others that this isn't super crazy hot given the types of peppers used. The makers did a good job mixing it all together in the right combination. This goes great with wild game meats, thanksgiving and other festive turkey meals. But i don't really think there's anything this hot sauce doesn't taste good with.

Excellent

My head tolerance is a bit low but this sauce is absolutely perfect. Perhaps not as hot as the heat scale given in the product description though. This sauce won with over with a disclaimer that the sour cherry may contain pits. That's awesome and screams no fake simulated cherry powered in this sauce. Will be buying this again.

Disguisting and disapointing.

I'm not a hot sauce expert but my taste buds hate this rub. For a long time, I've been looking for a cherry power spice. I tried to make my own using dollar store simulated cherry powder and this Mary's product is far worse. Imagine a no name cherry coke, add a ton more sugar, a while the smoke tries to overpower the similar tart cherry flavor that actually gives me a headache. To their credit, if real dehydrated cherry powder was used, they would likely have to charge around $30/shaker. I would pay this if they added some heat to this... otherwise cook your stuff in dr. pepper or cherry coke and save money. Won't be buying this again.
