Bon Appetit loves Cackalacky!

The original 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.

Much more than a hot sauce or table condiment, Cackalacky works nicely as a marinade for poultry, meat and seafood; a dipping sauce for chicken fingers, French fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and other fried food; a hot wings sauce; a dressing for veggies and even as a grilling sauce.  And you can use it to add sassy flavor to your favorite recipes including stews and soups, chili, baked beans, casseroles, sloppy joes and more.

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"

Zestfully yours,

PS:  Cackalacky is on sale now at the Carolina Sauces online store!
