Bum Hummers (or pickled onions with chilli and other spices) reputedly contain 1000 farts in a jar, which may put people off making a purchase, but while some of my friends were traversing around rural NSW, they decided this product was exactly what Australian Foodie needed, and so here we are.
I can't do a review without tasting a product, so despite some initial apprehensions and my husband's protests, taste a pickled onion I did, and they were actually really good!
Rather than just be a typical old onion, the chilli and spice infusion in these Bum Hummers really packed a kick, and would go really well with a crumbly cheddar and smoked ham on a fancy little ploughman's lunch plate.
The hot chilli in these onions made them strangely addictive, and after my eyes finished watering from my first taste, I was well up for another bite! To wash these spicy nuggets down, I'd opt for really good a pale ale such as a Little Creatures or a 4 Pines.
The onions in this jar are locally grown and preservative-free. Created by Riverina Grove, the range of Bum Hummer produce stems far and wide from this humble jar of pickled deliciousness. You can also procure for yourselves a jar of Bum Hummers Chilli Salsa (Fart Starter) or a jar of Bum Hummers Tomato Relish (No Farts in a Jar).
