When you create your own product for the first time you spend a lot of time discussing it with the producer, working on the labeling etc and take for granted everyone will get it and know how to use it !! Many people ask why 100ml ?? As a Coeliac and someone who moves around a lot with work (less these days sadly), I've often found myself stuck eating a bland soup or salad. Having something I can pop in my bag for those moments is ideal for me. I also live on my own so don't always want to buy larger bottles of condiments in case I don't like em and they go to waste.
I love my time at markets when I get the chance to talk to customers, share ideas and recipes. Many of you buy online or you're thinking about it so wanted to share some of my own tips for how to best use these little fellas, here goes;
Dip in - the tomato ketchup and chilli sauce both make great dipping options for chips, crisps, crackers or veggies.
Dip up - add a tsp of the spice blend to your favourite dip like hummus, guacamole or salsa.
Drizzle - the chilli sauce over a stir fry, in your favourite toasty, on top of a burger, any meat or veggies you're cooking up.
Marinade - mix 1 tbsp of chilli sauce, 1 tbsp of oil and 1 tsp of spice blend together for a meat or veggie marinade.
Saucey - add 1 tbsp of both chilli and ketchup to 2 tbsps of your favourite mayonnaise for a great marie rose sauce. This is delicious with fresh prawns and/or smoked salmon. I've also poured it on top of little roast potatoes for a my own version of home style patatas bravas.
Sprinkle - the spice blend for extra flavour and colour on top of your marie rose sauce or an egg mayonnaise. Sprinkle on soup, pasta sauce or pizza.
Season - rub the spice blend onto potato wedges or veggies with some oil and roast in the oven. The spice blend is also a great addition to homemade meat or veggie burgers.
Last but not least I like to use all 3 products when making a pizza. I take 2 tbsps tomato ketchup, 1 tbsp chilli and 1 tsp spice blend....mix together and spread over my favourite pizza base before adding toppings. If you don't like too much spice, replace the chilli measure with extra ketchup.
Please send in your feedback and let me know how you've used the sauces and seasoning so I can add those to the list. The opportunities are endless :).....ENJOY !
