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 in 2021 and again this year - it’s a keeper! These again use some of Fiat’s ridiculously hot chillies! So this one definitely has a kick!
Helped along with some extra late season tomatoes and local garlic grown by David Lonegrain in Kangaroo Valley. 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.
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! - Angie
