A legacy from seafaring British Navymen who tossed hot red peppers into bottles of Sherry, Rum and Gin to create a sauce that masked 'food-gone-off' on long voyages.
Think of it as the Nigerian hot sauce. Like Sriracha of Thailand. And the Sherry Pepper Sauce of Bermuda.
This creates a hot sauce with kick and bite! Great in chowders (cf. with Bermuda Sherry Pepper Sauce), on burgers, over stews and peanut sauces. Anywhere were a great tasting hot sauce is required. —Kitchen Butterfly
Gin (I used Gordon's London Dry Gin)
Hot (red) chili peppers (bird's eyes, holland peppers, etc)
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
