Introducing a Slew of New…
I’ve been shopping and have some great new items for you to taste. From a Moroccan Date Sauce that will enliven even the most boring piece of chicken to a small Kentucky town’s take on teriyaki, I have tried to diversify your dinner table as much as possible. Some of the new items include:
Moroccan Date Sauce – Described by the makers as “a perfect union of Moroccan spices and sweet dates, creating a rich gourmet sauce ideal for lamb, pork, or chicken. Perfect for chicken pita sandwiches. All Natural and Gluten Free.” I put it on country style pork ribs just this afternoon and it was delicious. I can see it over swordfish as well.
Ginger, Miso & Honey Dressing – They say, “young ginger, sweet carrot, honey and a rich white miso create a perfectly balanced salad dressing. Wonderful as a base for stir fry or as a dipping sauce for sushi and egg rolls. All Natural.” I say: baste it on a piece of grilled or broiled salmon and make your friends jealous they can’t cook like you.
Tart Cherry, Apple & Rosemary Glaze – This specialty sauce is best used by brushing on meat during cooking. Apply once for a subtle flavor or allow the sauce to glaze, then reapply multiple times for a more robust flavorful effect. Perfect for turkey, pork and chicken. For a real treat mix into mashed sweet potatoes or acorn squash. All Natural and Gluten Free. My vote is to glaze the ham for Sundaydinner and get all the kids there next week!
Hot Pepper Bacon Jam – This is not our regular bacon jam from Skillet – which we still carry and will always carry. Rather, it’s this new spicy jalapeño and red pepper version that I discovered and felt we should expand our repertoire. Roasted red pepper puree, jalapeno peppers and real bacon combine to create an addictive jam. For a quick appetizer, pour over cream cheese and serve with crackers. Use straight out of the jar as a dip. Pairs perfectly with strong cheeses. Delicious served with grilled fish and chicken or as a condiment on a sandwich, wrap or panini.
Bluegrass Soy Sauce – Bourbon Barrel Foods’ Bluegrass Soy Sauce is microbrewed in small batches using only whole Kentucky grown Non-GMO soybeans, soft red winter wheat, and the purest limestone filtered Kentucky spring water. They ferment and age the soybean mash in re-purposed bourbon barrels. It’s smoky and brothy with hints of oak and a mild sweetness reminiscent of fine Kentucky bourbon.
Bourbon Barrel Aged Worcestershire Sauce – Our Bourbon Barrel Aged Worcestershire Sauce comes from the creative minds at Bourbon Barrel Foods in Kentucky. It is a unique take on the traditional all-purpose seasoning. They developed a sauce that utilizes the flavors of Kentucky’s Bourbon country. It’s sweetened with sorghum, blended with pure Kentucky limestone spring water, and mellowed in bourbon barrels that were used to age some of the Bluegrass State’s finest Bourbons. It is all-natural and vegetarian, as it contains no anchovies.
Kentuckyaki Sauce – Kentuckyaki is a Kentucky style Teriyaki sauce. It’s flavored with Kentucky bourbon, sweetened with Kentucky sorghum, and is flavored with fresh ginger and garlic. It’s all natural and preservative free…this vegetarian gourmet sauce makes a great marinade for any meat and a delicious complement to stir-fry dishes and dipping sauces. #eatyourbourbon
Woodford Reserve Bourbon Cherries – Muddle, garnish, and top your favorite cocktails with Woodford Reserve® Bourbon Cherries. Gorgeous deep ruby color with a long stem and no pit. Made from natural ingredients, these cherries bring a brightness along with hints of Kentucky’s finest bourbon to recipes. I have three words: Black. Forest. Cake.
Black Truffle Mustard – Black Truffle: the fanciest of the bunch. Bryan and Justin searched far and wide for the best truffle infused olive oil they could get their hands on, mixed it in with their core set of ingredients and magic ensued. The flavor of truffle up front with the kick of the mustard seed on the tail end is a perfect combination when used in deviled eggs topped with pickled mushrooms.
