Carolina Sauce Newsletter: Get Ready for Mardi Gras

Tabasco SauceThe latest new products at the Carolina Sauce Company include an old favorite, the original Tabasco Sauce, back by popular demand and just in time for Mardi Gras.  Here are the other new arrivals since our last Newsletter:

Bacon Hot Sauce, Bacon BBQ Sauce & Bacon Ketchup:  If you agree that Bacon makes everything better, these condiments are for you!  Bacon Hot Sauce features a peppery blend of cayenne & New Mexico chiles with natural bacon flavor for a mildly hot sauce that's great on anything that could use some bacony zip.  Jim Beam Bacon BBQ Sauce is a classic sweet-tangy tomato-bourbon BBQ Sauce from KY with real bacon flavor that complements burgers, ribs, grilled meats, chicken, and even baked beans.  Slappin' Fat Bacon Ketchup adds genuine bacon flavor to hamburgers, scrambled eggs, fries, etc. for an authentic bacon experience even if you're out of bacon.  Enjoy mouthwatering bacon flavor without the grease or extra calories when you use any of these bacon condiments!

Habanero stuffed olives Crazy Jerry's Lizard Eyes:  Pepper-stuffed olives are back, and Crazy Jerry's calls them "lizard eyes." His Jalapeno-Stuffed Olives are a spicy snack you can enjoy straight from the jar, as an appetizer or as part of a pickle tray, or chop them up to add to salads, dips and recipes calling for regular green olives.  If you enjoy the fiery burn of habanero peppers, then Crazy Jerry's Habanero-Stuffed Olives will light your fire.

Il Primo Giardiniera & Sport Peppers:  Giardiniera is also back, and this time it comes from Chicago's legendary Il Primo.  Their Hot Giardiniera has been gracing Italian style sandwiches all over the Windy City for almost a century.  This feisty mix of hot peppers and pickled veggies is also tasty on pizza, pasta, hot dogs, burgers, with eggs and on salads.  Il Primo Sport Peppers are a signature condiment on Chicago hot dogs.  These mildly spicy pickled peppers can also be chopped and added to dips, omelets, pizza, tuna salad & other prepared salads, etc.

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper NutsDa Bomb Ghost Pepper Nuts:  If you're crazy about insanely hot food, these incendiary peanuts are your ideal snack:  Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Nuts are dusted with powdered ghost pepper (naga jolokia) AND habanero, so you'll need a frosty beverage handy to help quench the flames.

Ole Ray's Gourmet Sloppy Sauce:  Simply brown & drain ground beef, chicken, turkey or vegetarian ground "meatless," add some of this rich, savory-sweet sloppy-joe sauce and simmer for 15 minutes, then serve on hamburger buns or over rice for a simple and delicious dinner the whole family will enjoy.  Ole Ray's Sloppy Sauce is also great in meatloaf, baked beans, as an alternative to ketchup or BBQ sauce, and even with scrambled eggs & breakfast potatoes.

Mardi Gras Jambalaya Recipe

This hearty recipe is perfect for Mardi Gras or any other day. Use real Cajun seasonings and hot sauce for authentic flavor. In addition to traditional Tabasco, other good hot sauce choices are Dave's Cool Cayenne and Pain Is Good #218 Louisiana Hot Sauce.

1 cup rice

1 (2 to 3 lb) fryer chicken, cut into pieces
Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning, your choice of flavor
Flour for dredging
Chicken jambalaya recipe3 Tbs butter or bacon fat
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped (you can include the leaves)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 can or bottle of beer (or 1 cup broth)
3/4 cup chopped Tasso (spicy Cajun ham) or Andouille sausage
1/4 to 1/2 tsp (or to taste) Tabasco Sauce

Cook rice according to package.  While rice is cooking, liberally season the chicken parts with Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning, then dredge in flour. Melt the butter or bacon fat in a large heavy skillet (cast-iron is ideal), and fry the chicken until brown. Remove from skillet and place on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb excess fat. Using the fat in the skillet, saute the veggies in the skillet until tender. Put the chicken back in the skillet, add the tomatoes, tomato paste, tasso or sausage, 1 teaspoon of Slap Ya Mama Seasoning, and the hot sauce to taste. Stir, cover, and cook slowly until the chicken is tender (at least half an hour). Check regularly and add some of the beer/broth as needed (you don't want this to stick to the bottom of the skillet or burn). Once the chicken is fully cooked & tender, stir in the cooked rice and add more beer/broth if needed. Let simmer for 15 minutes to blend all the flavors. Serves 6, and leftovers freeze well.
