At Through the Moongate and Over the Moon Toys, we have always liked to feature local artists. There are many different types of art but we have a unique one that we have been featuring in our store for some time now. Local artist Dave Bell has created 2 more new sauces and 2 new dry versions that can be sprinkled onto food.
His original sauce, aptly called Smoky Disturbance, is a small batch condiment that has delightful flavors and plenty of capsaicin. Smoky Disturbance is made from peppers that Dave Bell grows, dries, lightly smokes, and carefully grinds and then expertly mixes with a pomegranate reduction. It can be described as a perfect balance of smoky, fruity, sweet, and salty. Smoky Disturbance is available either mild or hot. Update: Smoky Disturbance is still available mild (semi-molten) or hot (molten) but he's added two new sauces to choose from. Igneous Joyful Noise and Semi-Molten Joyful Noise are two new small batch sauces with a delightful flavor that is distinct from his original Smoky D . Substituting the pomegranate reduct with tamarind, these sauces have a uniquely different flavour.
Semi-Molten Joyful Noise is full strength. Spicy and flavourful and hotter than most for the chilli-fiends.
Igneous Joyful Noise is 1/4 strength for lots of flavour and accessible spice.
Capsaicin Magma Powder is a dry version meant for sprinkling. Dave combines the ground chilies with a coarse gray French sea salt, sel gris. Update: We have more than just the original to offer. Dave has created two more varieties: Habanero Magna Powder and Golden Ghost Magma Powder. Each one has it's own distinct flavor and intensity.
We also have Magma Nuts which are a lip-smacking combination of walnuts, almonds, cashews, and peanuts with garlic, rosemary, and spicy Magma Powder. You won't be able to stop eating them.
Smoky Disturbance, Magma Powder, and Magma Nuts are among the Moonladies favorites. Click here and check out this article by the Gutsy Gourmet to find out more.
