Made popular by the likes of Levi Roots, Scotch Bonnet chilli is best known for the unique flavour it brings to jerk dishes in Caribbean cuisine. But did you know that it’s also used to add flavour in many dishes and cuisines around the world including Central Africa? This chilli paste is made from our family recipe from DRCongo. The Scotch Bonnet chilli has been slow-cooked in olive and rapeseed oil for hours with onions, garlic and spring onions to give it its beautiful flavours.
