LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

The Farmers Markets are opening and the positive vibe is very welcome after this long winter of our discontent. There is something incredibly satisfying about trading my sauce for the spectacular wares that farmers market buddies offer. Check out your town/regional markets, take the pledge to purchase locally and don't be shy about asking questions, we love to talk about why we do the things we do.

NEW SAUCES

We tweaked an old secret menu sauce and got it so tasty we decided to make it the new Sauce du Jour. Vidalia Peach is made with a new pepper for us--Cobanero. It's a chile from Guatemala. Not a screaming hot profile, you'll need to slather it on to get a sniffle. Primarily California peaches with the last of the CLiCK fruit (rampaging beavers gnawed down all the peach trees last fall), Vidalia Onions from Georgia and the first of this season's Rhubarb. It's a 3 on the 2-15 heat scale.

HOT SAUCE IN SCHOOL LUNCHROOMS WILL EXPAND STUDENT PALETTES, AND THEIR MINDS

OPINION

Congrats to Brett on winning last month's opinion headline giveaway. Brett's was our favorite entry, especially given that one of Doug's kitchen jobs was Director of Food Service at a boarding school. Several of the early Unique Destiny sauces were developed at Hyde where he was able to use the faculty and students as guinea pigs.


We'll be sending Brett a bottle of this month's Sauce du Jour. To win next month's bottle, send an email to giveaways@dragonsbloodelixir.com with a quick Letter to the Editor. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, just a quick hello to Doug. We'll pick the winner at random.

NOW THAT I'VE BOUGHT IT, WHAT CAN I DO WITH IT?

Read up a pretty simple way to get chef-y with our latest Sauce du Jour on our recipe/tips blog.

This is a very versatile method of seasoning a main course.  Cayenne Herb and Garlic Paprikash will also work brilliantly in this application.
