Spaghetti bolognese ‘isn’t fit to eat’ without chilli jam, says Suffolk food maker Rick Sheepshanks
SAUCE and preserve company, Stokes Sauces, has launched a new range of chilli products - including a chilli jam that its founder recommends for spaghetti bolognese.
The food company, which is based in Rendlesham near Woodbridge, now produces more than 100 different lines, including the new chilli products including a Chilli Jam, Chilli Mint Jelly and Chilli Yellow Pepper Jelly, which 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, he said.
“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,” said Mr Sheepshanks.
Launched in 2004, Stokes Sauces now produces more than 100 different lines and its produce is widely stocked in farm shops and independent stores throughout the UK.
