Our Amazing Reviews

Great Taste Review Caribbean Pickle

The rustic appearance is pleasing and the aroma is appealingly sweet. The texture is great with the right amount of crunch in the veg. The heat level is spot on and it allows all the sweet and sharp flavours to come through . Very well balanced.

Great Taste Review Pineapple Chilli

This beautiful, deep golden, glossy chunky relish looks so appetising in the jar. There is a delicate pineapple and spice nose.  On tasting it is wonderfully juicy because of the chunky pineapple.  We love the level of cardamon and ginger an hint of onion.  It is sweet, sour a, sharp with a gentle heat that grows on the palate but is not fierce, which means one could eat quite a lot of it at one sitting.  It would be great with cold roast pork or ham , it would suit chicken, fish or cheese too. We think this is a well-made, well-judged product.

Great Taste Review Jerk Seasoning

Classic Jamaican hot sauce colour, aroma and indeed flavour, with all the ingredients playing their part in the overall flavour profile well.  Nicely seasoned and fruity whilst spicy in all the right places with appropriate mellowness and a nice long finish.

Great Taste Review Apple Chilli

There are clove notes on the aroma.  A Good tang, quite fruity and well balanced, a clean acidity and a gentle heat, a great alternative to a standard apple sauce.

Vital Nutrition

Carolyn’s Totally Hot spices, pickles and sauces are the perfect way to add a pop of flavour and a dollop of nutrition to your food. Totally Hot contain only natural ingredients, are low sugar, packed with nutrients and taste amazing. I think that healthy food should always taste good, and what I love about Carolyn’s pickles and sauces are that they are an easy way to transform a boring lunchtime, or a bland dinner into something vibrant, fresh and tasty. Do yourself, and your health a favour and pick up a couple of jars to try for yourself!”

“Try Pineapple Chilli with a great blue cheese such as Colston Bassett Stilton or Young Buck. The sweet kick of the Chilli marries perfectly with the creaminess of the cheese…..totally hot, totally delish!”

Packed with vegetables, spices and garlic, marinated in cider vinegar, this colourful caribbean combination is packed with fibre and powerful antioxidants  I love it with salads or a spicy kick to oatcakes and cheese!”
