These classic red chillies work well in sweet as well as savoury dishes: a little chilli helps to cut through the richness of dark chocolate, making them both the perfect addition to your meat-free chilli, or classic 'con carne'.
Chillies are the biggest spice crop in the world today: hundreds of different varieties are grown in all tropical regions and eaten daily by about a quarter of the global population. The spicy heat of chillies is due to the presence of capsaicin which varies according to the variety of chilli and its degree of ripeness; removing seeds and veins will reduce the heat level.
We know you love supporting local, independent producers and knowing exactly where your food comes from. We also know that there are some extra bits and pieces that you really need to make that order as complete as possible. Being too rigid about local sourcing, doesn't actually help our suppliers, as it means we're sending our customers elsewhere to complete their shop. We always seek to be as transparent as possible - so you can make an informed decision about what you want to buy. So we’re delighted to have teamed up with Alex from the esteemed organic wholesaler Langridge Organic. Langridge work with specialist growers from around the UK, Europe & the rest of the world operating a local buying policy: "We always source from the closest possible producer providing they meet with the quality standards our customers expect.” In time with more local customers, farmers will be able to grow a broader local range - ok, maybe not bananas, but more varieties at more times of the year, all produced closer to you.Find out more
