As lovers of hot sauce, we’re excited to introduce you to another fantastic product from Belfast’s premier purveyors of spicy goodness, Blackfire Foods. Samson Hot Sauce is made with the same care and attention to quality as their other chilli sauces, and is just the ticket for those of you who are looking for a milder heat, but without losing out on the flavour.
Samson Hot Sauce is a fruity blend of mango, pineapple, and dulse. What’s dulse, we hear you ask? Well, it’s a kind of red seaweed found on the coasts of County Antrim, which has been eaten in that part of the world since time immemorial. As well as being rich in minerals and nutrients, it has a unique, complex flavour . Put it all together and you’ve got a bright, tropical condiment that’s hard to resist. It’s versatile too – use it as a marinade for chicken or fish, add a splash to your barbecue sauce, or even drizzle it over your favorite cheese or egg dishes.
Like all Blackfire sauces, Samson Hot Sauce is made with top-quality Irish ingredients. Now, obviously mangos and pineapples don’t grow so well in the chilly climes of Belfast, so they have to come from further afield. But they’re sourced from trusted local suppliers, ensuring that only the freshest and most flavorful fruit goes into each bottle. The dulse, on the other hand, is harvested straight from the clear, cold waters of the Irish Sea.
One of the things we like most about about Samson Hot Sauce is that it’s not excessively spicy, so we can use it all the time. While some hot sauces can be overwhelming, this one is just right for those who want a bit of heat without feeling like they’re breathing fire. It’s a mild sauce, but it still packs plenty of flavor. The sweetness of the mango and pineapple is balanced by the saltiness of the dulse, and there’s a slight tang from the vinegar used in the recipe.
Speaking of vinegar, Blackfire Foods only use the best – in this case, it’s apple cider vinegar from the Armagh Cider Company. Made from the famous Armagh Bramley apples, this vinegar is a cut above the rest. It’s not too acidic, and it has a subtle sweetness that complements the other flavours in the sauce.
If you’re a fan of Blackfire’s other hot sauces, you’ll be pleased to know that Samson Hot Sauce is just as good. It’s part of the same small-batch range, made with care and attention by the dedicated team in Belfast. Every bottle is packed with flavour, and you can taste the love and pride that goes into each batch.
We think Samson Hot Sauce is perfect for summer – it’s fruity, refreshing, and just a little bit spicy. It’s a great way to add some flavor to your barbecue, or to spice up a salad or sandwich. You could even use it as a dipping sauce for vegetables or crackers. If you’re a hot sauce fan, or you’re looking for something new to try, we highly recommend giving Samson Hot Sauce a go. You won’t be disappointed.
