Fermented Tamarillo Salsa Batch #02


Fermented Tamarillo Salsa Batch #02


New 2021 batch! This year’s is a hot one!

A tamarillo is often described as a tree tomato. In the same family and also originating from South America, the fruit is sour and tangy. The flavour resembles a savoury guava. This ferment was originally going to be a one off but it was so popular in 2020 I had to bring it back. However, this time Fiat supplied me with some ridiculously hot chillies! So this one definitely has more of a kick!

Helped along with some extra late season tomatoes from Andrew Muscat and local garlic from Owl Farm in Braidwood. Probiotic and wildly fermented this tangy salsa sauce has natural lactobacillus and yeasts that combine to give the sauce sourness, sweetness and umami with a really unique flavour profile with added help of a secret spice blend.

Serving Suggestions

This on is great over a grilled fish taco! Actually the sourness goes great with any fish dish. It would also compliment barbecued pork really well! Try this in a simple toasty with your favourite cheese. Or just drizzle over rice and beans. A lot hotter this year so try a splash!
