Red, White and Black Currant Awesome Sauce

Pin It Red, White and Black Currant Awesome Sauce

Chicken Wings with Red, White and Black Currant Awesome Sauce
I happen to love sauce with big flavor and a subtle heat profile while my other half Allen loves big flavor and heat to the extreme. With Sweet Heat Gourmet's Red, White and Black Currant Awesome Sauce we both went nuts for it. We first used it on chicken wings and this week, I made a butter sauce and slathered it over pork chops. Both recipes tasted great and were simple to do.

Based in Pennsylvania, Sweet Heat Gourmet use locally sourced ingredients from Jade Family Farm in their products and we like to support companies like this. The ingredients in Red, White and Black Currant Awesome Sauce are: red currants, tomato puree, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, golden raisins, fresh cherry juice, worchestershire sauce, water, balsamic vinegar, mustard powder, shallots, chipotle and salt. I got a subtle hint of smokiness from the chipotle but no heat, and the flavor of the currants are prominent as they should be since they are the star ingredient. The brown sugar, raisins and cherry juice bring out the sweetness but are balanced by the vinegars, tomato puree, worchestershire, mustard and shallots, which enhance the flavor profile. We both give this sauce our stamp of approval, and recommend you add it to your pantry. All in all, the ingredients are balanced and this is a versatile sauce that will compliment steak, chicken, turkey, sausage or fish. I think it would go great with chocolate cake as well. Hmmm...
