One Coco: Miss Dutchie

Hey! I know it’s been a while since I updated the basket but I went to an event called A Jamaican Made Christmas- this is an annual 2-day pop-up arcade with only Jamaican brands- and got a few things; I believe this is my third year going.  I’ll be doing separate posts for each item, today we’re adding a Miss Dutchie Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly to the basket.

I made it a task to walk around and taste all the free samples I could, don’t judge, who doesn’t love food? At Miss Dutchie’s booth they had Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jerk Seasoning, Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jackfruit Chutney, and the one I sampled, Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly. I didn’t want to eat the jerk seasoning on crackers and I don’t like jackfruit; so, I was left with one option, the jelly. I had a taste on a cracker and it was so yummy I bought one right away. At first you taste the sweetness from the jelly then a burst of heat follows, tickling your taste buds.

Over the past couple of months I have been trying out some new sauces from my local supermarket but I’ve noticed a trend, I tend to stick to any product that has some sweetness in it. I like sweet things in general, I prefer that to tangy or savory flavours; so, you’ll catch me having sweet and sour, or sweet and spicy. I find this jelly is perfect so far, I’ve used it on sandwiches and toast; after tasting the pepper, the heat subsides after a while. If you’re not a pepper person, this product can work for you, just use it sparingly.

I give it a 4.9/5 rating: the consistency is nice, the balance of sweetness and spice is perfect, the price is reasonable, the label is very chic and trendy, but I’d have liked to see a refrigerate note on the label. I would definitely buy again, give it a try if you see it on your supermarket shelves.
