Looks oily and unappetising but when used in food
Looks oily and unappetising but when used in food seems to work nicely hot and tasty in sauces curries etc
Waste of money
Way too much vinegar. Awful!
Better than fresh chillies
Great stuff, I wouldn't be without it. Use wherever you would use fresh chillies, except you don't have to prepare and therefore avoid the chilli burn. It's got a great kick too.
As described, a very convenient (lazy) way to add heat to you dishes. Great in pasta and curries. Goes a long way too as you dont need much to add a kick. 1/4 teaspoon for 2 is enough for medium heat.
Not what I've expected
I used it as a side dip for chicken. Except for being spicy, it has no taste at all. The texture is rough, I didn't like having large pieces of peppers skin inside.
