Oxford launches the Foundry! #OxFo

A huge congratulations to Oxford Foundry on a very successful launch day. Inspiring talks on the day –  “Your focus group is yourself – you should make products that you want to use.”You can bet if you love it, many other people out there will love it too.”

The Oxford Foundry building, which was originally a Victorian ice factory, includes working spaces, presentation areas and a cafe. It will channel academic research commercially, bring world renowned figures in to talk to students, host problem solving competitions and workshops, and provide a start-up support programme.

The Chilli Seed!

Our Mahi Bhut Jolokia hot sauce is made from Bhut Jolokia peppers, making it one of the hottest sauces in our range. You can make your very own Chilli sauce using one of the kits available on Amazon here.

So, what is a Scoville unit? Wilbur Scoville devised the test and scale in 1912 while working at the Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company to measure pungency, “spiciness” or “heat”, of various chili peppers. He mixed ground chili in sugar, alcohol and water and taste tested the heat content, rating them from 0 to 200,000 on the “Scoville scale.” This scale has been extended in recent times to account for Chilli’s with a higher concentration capsaicin.

It’s always worth using caution when working with chili peppers. They do contain volatile oils that can cause burn to your skin and eyes. If your skin is sensitive, wear thin rubber gloves. If you bite into a chili and regret it, drink a glass of milk. As a general rule, the smaller the pepper the hotter because smaller chilies have a higher proportion of seeds and ribs. This is not really a universal rule as some of the larger peppers like “Habanero” for example do still pack a strong punch.

Peppers are easy to grow.  Sow Chilli pepper seeds on the surface of a moist, free-draining, seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25 degrees C until germination, which usually takes 7-10 days. Provide an even water supply and never let the plants droop. Space chili plants 18-24 inches apart. Caution, when handling these peppers wear gloves. If you touch them with your hands, keep them away from your eyes and mouth. `

If you would like us to send out some Chilli seeds to help you grow your own Chilli plant, from which you can make your very own Hot Sauce – please do sign up to our mailing list!
