    For anyone who is a lover of a hot chilli taste,myself included,this is a definite must.With the addition of a lime sweetness to top it off.

    This scores 10 out of 5! I don’t believe there is a better lime pickle on the planet. It’s beautifully hot, so a little goes a long way!

    Simply, my favourite preserve of all time. I first tried it several years ago when I came across Gingerbeard at a beer festival and I haven’t looked back since.
    Nothing else I know is both so fiendishly hot and so overwhelmingly flavoursome.
    Try or die!

    I’m addicted to this stuff. It’s fiercely hot but not at the expense of flavour. It has an utterly unique taste and consistency and I can’t get enough of it. As long as you keep making it, I’ll keep buying it.

    I first picked this up when I came across Ginger Beard at a beer festival/food market in South Devon a few years ago. It was delicious back then and I never forgot it. I just found him online and treated myself to another jar plus a couple of other things. Thankfully it’s still excellent. Great work, Ginger Beard.

    This has to be THE best Lime Pickle on the planet. The balance of flavours and added heat are just perfect when you want a condiment that actually excites you and adds real power to any meal you have it with. Imagine those “fine wine tasters” doing all that sloshing / gurgling / sniffing and tasting while they quaff a £1000 bottle with a big smile on their face – well, this is just like that.

    Freshness, REAL natural flavour, a wicked aftertaste, massive depth to it and a proper, proper devilish punchy heat! L O V E it!

    Needless to say, this will be on constant re-order in our household!

    If you like it hot, this is amazing; if you find it on the challenging side of hot – persevere! The lingering after-taste that you get is incredible – turns a simple taste into an experience – a lovely one!

    I have been eating this jar out. I love Lime Pickle and was sceptical about “Sweet & Hot” which usually means “Sugar and not much else”. It comes with a warning “Warning this pickle packs a punch” which usually means the same thing…
    There’s power, a HUGE aftertaste, this has depth, not just heat. But honestly, it really DOES have heat.
    Probably the closest thing to the perfect Lime Pickle that I will see in Europe.

  22. Jo Franks

    This is the best lime pickle I’ve ever tasted…I cannot get enough!
