The workshop

In this workshop you will...

...learn how to make a fermented hot sauce, and take a starter away with you to ferment at home!

...learn how to make a chilli jam, and take some jars you've made away with you!

...have a light dinner at the end of the class - using some of the sauces and jams made in the class!

There will be a selection of chillies and other ingredients so you will be able to put your own spin on your jam and sauce!

You will be working in pairs so this is a good workshop if you want to bring a friend or partner!

All ingredients and required materials are provided as part of the cost of the workshop. You'll also get a PDF with workshop information before the class. You should bring your own pen & paper if you want to write notes.

Frequently asked

How spicy are your products?

Tolerance to chilli heat is very individual! Easton Chilli products are rated out of 5 on heat, trying to make a scale that works for regular people (i.e. people who don't have hot sauce on everything! :) )

  • 0/5 - No heat here. Possibly suitable for your newborn baby.
  • 1/5 - Just a hint. If you like your spice, you probably think this is nothing.
  • 2/5 - A bit of zing. Everyone should be able to enjoy this level of heat, whether you're a regular folk or a chilli fiend. Most of our products are aimed at this level.
  • 3/5 - It's heating up. Probably getting a little spicy for the regular folk now, definitely too spicy for a newborn baby.
  • 4/5 - Now we're talking! You might talk your pal into trying this once, but they might need a glass of milk, and they might not speak to you for a while.
  • 5/5 - Everything that's way too spicy for a regular person.

Here are some rough equivalences in heat.

  • Heinz Tomato Ketchup = Easton Chilli 0/5
  • Nando's Medium Peri Peri = Easton Chilli 2/5
  • That chilli sauce at your local kebab shop = probably Easton Chilli 3/5
  • Chilli Daddy's 4 = Easton Chilli 5/5

Where are your products made?

I started making everything in my home kitchen in Easton! This was great until Christmas 2023 when everyone wanted a jar of chilli jam, In January 2024 I started renting a professional kitchen over in Brislington to make all the products. At some point I hope to return production to Easton!

My t-shirts are printed by the lovely Live Ink Co, based in Bedminster in Bristol.

Sustainability etc?

Of course. Sustainability is important to Easton Chilli and it's considered in all parts of the business.

Packaging

We try to reuse waste materials in our packaging, so if someone has delivered bubble wrap to us, or we have a perfectly sized Amazon box lying around, we might use them for your order. Better to reuse it than throw it away to landfill!

All new packaging that we source is plastic-free and recyclable, and we prefer to buy cardboard or recycled materials where possible. Sometimes we use corn-starch mailer bags.

Any waste cardboard that we can't use gets shredded and put into our compost heap, along with our waste vegetable scraps from jam cooking. The worms love this arrangement.

Product

We try to source all our ingredients "loose" and prefer local and low-plastic companies.

We use preserving techniques like lacto-fermentation to extend the shelf life of some of our ingredients, for example we can buy in a few kg of bird's eye chillies and keep using them for months under the right conditions.

The old packaging of our jars is designed to be removed - it's just a bit of string and card. The idea is that you're more likely to reuse a jar if you don't have to spend ages washing off the sticker that's on it. Our new packaging is paper based and biodegradable - no plastic.

We currently use plastic tamper seals on our 150ml hot sauce bottles, and plastic lids; we are working towards using a compostable tamper seals but the lids will probably be plastic as long as we use this type of bottle.

Unfortunately due to UK Food Safety regulations, we are not allowed to re-use any glass destined to be a "packaged product" i.e. a jar of jam or a bottle of sauce that is sold to a consumer. We have to use new jars and lids for each product. If this weren't the case we'd love to have a closed-loop return and reuse system in place, and we'd be up for working with other producers to standardise on our packaging to make it more viable.

Delivery

We've partnered with Zedify to deliver some of our packages in Bristol. Their fleet of electric cargo bikes means their deliveries within BS1-16 are low-carbon-emitting.

Delivery to the rest of the UK is done using Royal Mail and other couriers like APC and DPD, many of which are working to reduce their carbon emissions.
