Strictly limited edition – only 1 large bottle made (10 small). It’s the end of the UK chilli season now, and these were the very last batch of White Ghost chillis available, and I managed to secure a small quantity of this relative rarity. It’s not as fiery as its grown-up cousin, the red ghost, meaning I could tone this down a bit and even add some pineapple to make it fruitier.
Why the strange name? Well, Catford Fire grew up in Hong Kong, and “gweilo”, or “white ghost” is a term well-used amongst the locals for Westerners… It was the perfect name.
You know those evenings when you happily consume a whole family bag of tortilla chips and aren’t even sorry? Well, this would make the perfect accompaniment to one of those satisfying events. We kept the ingredients super pared back, allowing the more subtle flavour to shine through, then added a few kaffir lime leaves for taste, before removing them ahead of the blend.
For those of you looking for something lighter, this one’s for you.
