Cackalacky Spice Sauce, created in Chapel Hill and already one of North Carolina's favorite condiments, is featured in the February 2012 "Savor the South" issue of Bon Appetit Magazine!
The editors declared Cackalacky to be a "favorite" among "... a fresh crop of artisans [who are] giving the Southern pantry a whole new shelf life." How very true!
Cackalacky was a pioneer among North Carolina products when it was first introduced about a decade ago: Not really a barbecue sauce (but delicious on pulled pork and other grilled or smoked meats), not quite a hot sauce (pleasantly peppery without burning), and made with North Carolina sweet potatoes and other unusual all-natural ingredients, its rich texture and bright savory flavor burst on the local food scene to well-deserved acclaim.
Since then, Cackalacky has won numerous awards and been featured in many publications as well as national radio and TV shows. This one-of-a-kind sauce can be found in natural groceries and specialty-foods stores in almost two dozen states, and you can also buy Cackalacky online from the Carolina Sauce Company.
Not sure how to say the name? Here's a helpful pronunciation guide from the folks who created this gem of a sauce: "kak-uh-lak-ee"
