Temperature Rises At Stokes Sauces
The Suffolk-based food company, which now produces over 100 different lines, has unveiled a range of new chilli products including a Chilli Jam, Chilli Mint Jelly and Chilli Yellow Pepper Jelly.
Packed full of the finest fresh ingredients, the new chilli products are presented in the unmistakable high-quality Stokes bottle and retail at around £3 a jar.
Rick Sheepshanks, managing director of Stokes Sauces, said: "We are truly delighted with the new additions to our brand.
"We launched our Real Tomato Ketchup with chilli back in 2006 and the product was so well received that we decided it was time to expand our range of hot and spicy sauces and preserves."
The new chilli products work particularly well with red meats and provide the perfect cheese board accompaniment, highlighting the flavour of mature cheddars and soft bries.
Rick's own favourite use for it is rather simpler, however:
'The new chilli products make a fantastic cooking ingredient and add a real kick to a pasta sauce - a Spaghetti Bolognese isn't fit for consumption in my house without a great big dollop of chilli jam," he said.
Launched in 2004, Stokes Sauces now produces in excess of over 100 different lines and its produce is widely stocked in farm shops and independent stores throughout the UK.
Leading supermarkets are now also beginning to stock key lines from the Stokes brand.
