Gunpowder, by The Carved Angel, is labelled as a hot garlic pickle but is anything but hot. Garlicky, yes. Hot, no. Maybe I was expecting something H.O.T.T hot. It matters not! Gunpowder delivers a delicate dose of spice and a heavy hit of garlic that doesn’t over power yet doesn’t lack punch.
The Carved Angel, based in Devon, started like as a restaurant in 1974 opened by Joyce Molyneux before moving in to the food-for-home market.
I like to lash this on to a cheese sandwich or toasty or with grilled meats to give a kick while Mr Tramp enjoyed Gunpowder stirred in to some gravy.
