This final Dr. Trouble products have been perfected over the last 15 years in the farm kitchen, so that the slow process and unique flavour is not lost with modern impatience. The recipe was found in the diary of R.A. Fletcher – mapmaker of Rhodesia, 1898.
Dr. Trouble uses the finest home grown chilli, a blend of African Birds Eye and the famous Cayenne Pepper. Lemons are gathered from the communal lands of Zimbabwe, organic and naturally grown trees, each homestead usually having a lemon tree…
The chilli is hot-smoked over rare English Oak chips, and allowed to cool, and then smoked for a second time… lending the unique, and sweet smoky overtones that have made our sauce so popular.
The chilli, lemon juice and spices are poured into blown glass flagons. These 30 litre flagons, are placed in the hot African sun for up to days. Each flagon gently stirred twice a day, encouraging the flavours to meld into a smooth and aromatic flavour, versatile for for all food types. Batch made with Pride.
