Chillies

  • Characteristics and uses

    One of the most distinctive aromas of all vegetables, chillies should smell fresh and pungent with a slightly astringent tone. Commonly used to spice curries, they are also used in salads and some drinks.

  • Appearance

    Both red and green chillies should look appetizingly fresh and clean skinned. Deep red and verdant green are the most common colours.

  • Flesh

    A balanced ratio between juice and flesh with white to slightly yellow seeds, which are the spiciest part. Fresh chillies should not appear too dry or lumpy.

  • Taste

    Chillies can compliment almost any taste while never dominating the other ingredients. Instead they are used in small amounts to compliment and enhance flavours.
