How hot are your products?

We use habanero chillies in our raw relishes and and a blend of powdered chillies in our cooked sauces (Ghana Shito, Vegan Shito and Jollof Sauce). Our Non-Spicy Jollof Sauce contains no chilli but does have some ginger which gives it some slight heat. 
Habanero chillies have a scoville rating of between 100,000 and 350,000.

Can I eat your products uncooked?

Yes!! Our 5 raw relishes are a blend of fresh fruits and vegetables that can be enjoyed uncooked. Our other products (Gifty's® Ghana Shito, Gifty's® Vegan Shito and Gifty's® Ghana Jollof Sauce) are already cooked and can be enjoyed straight out of the jar. You do not need to cook them further. However, to use the Jollof Sauce to make the famous Ghana Jollof Rice, raw rice would have to be added to the sauce and cooked according to the simple instructions on the jar.
All of the products in our shop can be enjoyed with a variety of meals.

Yes, our relishes go well with a whole host of dishes and can be enjoyed raw or with cooked food. You can also use them as marinades or stir-in sauces. Check out our product pages for inspiration.
