Chillis Galore are Richard & Kathy, who started growing chillis in about 1990 in Spixworth near Norwich in the UK, to obtain some different varieties to use in home cooking, which to start with were mainly Mexican varieties such as Ancho's and Passila's, the hottest variety then was the Red Habanero from the Caribbean. After a few successfull years chilli growing our website was started to share this knowledge, and over the years it has grown in popularity with now huge following worldwide. This led us to developing our own homemade chilli jellies, relishes and sauces in March 2000 which is still done today in our home kitchen, now in Drayton near Norwich. We still grow our plants in greenhouses in our back garden where we grow different varieties each year to show, sell and use in our own products which involves keeping up with growing the latest trending super hot chillis each year.
All of our products are still handmade by only Kathy in our home kitchen to our own developed recipes over the years. We do not add any colourants or bulking agents just letting the individual natural flavours and heat of the chilli peppers come through giving a fresh and vibrant flavour. All products contain fresh chilli pods to ensure maximum flavour and cooked in small batches in two stainless steel pots and then hand filled and sealed. The labels have been designed by us, home printed and hand labelled at home. All aspects of all of our products are still managed at home, even down to deliveries around East Anglia.
