The Cardiff Giant
Hello Chili Heads!
It’s a great time to try a new sauce. Heart Breaking Dawns has produced their second very collectable hot sauce/reserve and this year it is pretty awesome. So for those of you that collect, and are trying to save up enough money for Blair’s annual Halloween Reserve @ Extremefood.com (with out taking a home loan out) this one is for you and it won’t break the bank.
For those of you that don’t know, Heart Breaking Dawns Sauce Company is a family run business that produces all things spicy! Well, not all things but their website has hot sauce, spices, collectables, shirts, aprons, and more. Their Jolokia Blondies (brownies) and their heat packed chocolate chip cookies just rock! If you can make it through one, guaranteed that everything on your body will be on fire! Yum. I’ve got one in the freezer that I am going to get right now…a perfect snack for review writing.
½ hour later…still recovering from the Jolokia Cookie!
When I found out about the new collectable I was really excited because their first one was awesome! Hand blown glass, signed and numbered, and best of all filled with white lava. Even the family dog had a hand (uh, I mean paw) in the production of it. Their second collectable is a hand resin waxed tall decanter filled with a beautifully colored sauce. One might admire it as one does a beautiful flower but once you try it, you will respect it with fear and trembling knowing full well that… you just got stung by the scorpion!
Mine arrived in the mail perfect. They really made an effort to pack it well. As I tipped the bottle side to side I could see a black scorpion floating in the sauce. I couldn’t help but breath a sigh of relief when I found that there was NOT a scorpion floating in the 1oz. taster jar. I couldn’t imagine crunching down on that bad boy and feeling the tip of the tail imbed itself in the back of my throat as I endured the heat of the 16 million Capsaicin crystal and the Trinidad Scorpion Peppers. The sauce has a nice color and looks very inviting.
So I tried this sauce with my brother-in-law. I must admit that I had a little fear when I opened the bottle. My first impression when I smelled the open bottle was the tequila. I really couldn’t smell much more then that. I poured a little out on two spoons. The sauce was not as runny as it had appeared within the bottle and spread slowly out on the spoon. I shook it before pouring; only out of habit cause it really did not need it. The different ingrediants had not separated and there was just a hint of possible capsaicin crystals on the side of the bottle when tipped. The taste was very pleasant. My first thought was of a margarita then the next thing I knew was the heat came fast a furious. After hiccupping for the first 10 minutes I was able to enjoy a nice endorphin rush from the burn. I didn’t have to consume a lot of milk to manage the heat…this surprised me. If I had consumed a full tablespoon, things probably would have been much different. I must admit, I enjoyed it and wonder what food I might use it in. There was no nasty extract taste and the burn was very clean and even. My brother in law said that it wasn’t an overwhelming alcohol taste. So there you have it…our opinions varied. We did agree that the sauce was good and worth trying. The burning heat lasted for about 15 minutes. After about 20 minutes I could feel the heat even in my stomach. 25 to 30 minutes later it was all over. My suggestion to Johnny would be to make it in a production bottle as well cause I think people will use this sauce if available.
Another great “Super Hot” that they make is called Mauvais Sang. If you have not tried it then it is a must. That sauce has a great smell and flavor…the heat will drop you!
You have been warned!
You can follow these chili producing/sharing people on their Facebook page or through their website heartbreakingDawns.com. The Cardiff Giant can be found at their site by following the link. Johnny is also always cooking up something amazing and spicy at Peppers Store as well. Well, this is Atomic Eh? Wishing you well and wondering who is going to get #1 for Blair’s Halloween Reserve this year. I think I need one for my collection! So keep it hot and keep it spicy. Most of all,
