Cooking with Condiments | Use Em Up, Add Authentic Flavor and Cut Your Cooking Time In Half
Cooking with Condiments. How to use em up, add authentic flavor and make easy meals that cut your cooking time in half!
I get this all the time. I bought a jar of your sauce but I am not sure what to do with it.
First of all, our website has heaps of recipes so no excuse but let’s take a minute or two to talk about condiments and why they should be your best friend. First of all most “true to their craft” artisan condiment makers like ourselves, strive to create the best authentic condiments we can, using fresh fruits and vegetables, quality spices, non gmo ingredients and have spent years developing recipes, so use us as your kitchen go-to. Most of our products, because they are savory rather than just sweet, are a perfect accompaniment to everything from simple roast chicken to stir-fry’s, noodles, salads and sandwiches.
Now think about this. You get home after a long day at work and you want to make Asian noodles, just like you had the other day at that Japanese lunch spot….you kind of know how to make an Asian style dressing to put on noodles. Maybe a little soy mixed with sesame? Add some fish sauce? Oh wait, you think to yourself, do I need rice wine vinegar and fresh ginger? Oh forget it! You are tired, don’t have any vinegar or ginger on hand and you definitely don’t want to run to the grocery store. Sound familiar? Now here is where we come in. Take our Ginger Soy Infusion Dressing and pour over noodles. Done. It’s got all the above and then some…we start with Dashi stock, add fresh ginger, organic tamari, saki, fresh garlic, unhulled sesame seeds…. You see we just made your dinner go from…recipe hunting, ingredient buying and stressful to easy peasy Japanesey! And our dressing is authentic and all natural, just read our ingredients.
Scenario number 2. Chicken. Boring Chicken Again? What am I going to do with these chicken thighs tonight? Hmmm…Do you want to make caramelized onion chicken with rosemary and potatoes…yes, yes you do BUT, you don’t want to chop onions, cry, ruin your eye makeup and then caramelize onions for 20 minutes before you even think about baking your chicken so instead you add Wozz! Triple Ale Onion Spread to your chicken thighs with some potatoes and pop em in the oven for 20 minutes. YUP.
That’s condiments. Wait… at least that’s Wozz! Condiments. Let’s not stoop so low to be compared to ketchup, because we are far ahead of the curve of corn syrup and canned tomatoes…we are a whole lot of fresh local ingredients, bold spices, no concentrates or gunk wrapped up into a whole lot of hard work in the kitchen and some real handcrafted love and care is added to each and every jar that may be sitting in your fridge right now.
Some may say, but I can make all that myself….sure you can but do you always want to? Some say, I can make it better, I challenge that. But hey…if you are a condiment champion, we’ll rise to the occasion. :) We spend hours painstakingly perfecting our recipes, sometimes we are in the kitchen for 12 hours making 1 batch of product. Some say but mine are healthier. We source a variety of our ingredients from local farms, use local 100% local maple syrup, fresh vegetables, fresh herbs, super spices including coriander, turmeric, paprika, fresh ginger and garlic. We use only apple cider vinegar and fresh lemon juice to acidify our products, no purees or concentrates so If you are worried about them not being clean…you can stop worrying. If you would rather make all your sauces from scratch than that is ideal, of course! but we just make it easier for you. If you are worried about sugar, please know that because most of our condiments are savory rather than sweet that they are pretty low in sugar. Our Kiwi Lime Salsa Verde has no added sugar, our Thai Orange Ginger Relish, Moroccan Tomato Onion Relish and North African Chermoula Dressing and Marinade are just a few others that are very low in sugar compared to most other jams and spreads on the market.
Unless you only put a squeeze of lemon on everything…then yes maybe we are not for you. But if you want full flavor and weeknight dinners that give you those memories of your travels around the globe but take less than 30 minutes to make than look no further than Wozz!
From burger toppings to salad drizzles to salmon marinades to chicken dinners to shrimp stir-frys to grilled pork chops, our condiments and sauces take your boring ole dinners and transform them into a unique tasting experience that takes no time at all and makes you look like a pro in the kitchen.
Want to make Japanese Sesame Beef and Broccoli? All you need is Wozz, beef and broccoli. Think about how you would make it from scratch.
Think about it….
I bet I got most of you stumped….well unless you are an Asian cook connoisseur….if you are than good on ya.
Break out those condiments folks. Open that bottle and pour it in the pan with your favorite meat, seafood or veggies. Cook and Serve. Garnish with parsley or a kale leaf if you must! ;)
Cooking with condiments is easy, and with the rise of artisan food makers, it’s not unhealthy, it’s not generic, it’s not hard. It’s easy, delicious and it will awaken your palate! No one wants to eat another baked chicken breast dipped in ketchup. No one wants to empty their kitchen cupboard at 7 at night looking for 18 ingredients to make an Asian stir-fry sauce. So don’t! All you have to do is buy Wozz!, eat Wozz! and repeat. And if you are stuck for ideas….just check out our recipes!
