506006506006B001EO5ZHOA3PJZ8TU8FDQ1KJared Castle91151238630400Rooster Sauce! -- A condiment you can't put down!UPDATE: Andrew Knowlton, restaurant editor at Bon Appétit magazine, predicts sriracha will be one of the biggest food trends of 2010!

Knowlton was a guest on the CBS Early Show on Dec. 30, 2009 and shared, "If you walk into any chef's kitchen or home, you will find sriarcha. Sriracha is a hot sauce with flavor -- it livens up every dish you put it on."

----

Once only found on Thai or Vietnamese restaurant tables, a bottle of Sriracha (sree-RAH-cha) Hot Chili Sauce is now a telltale sign of a great eatery, whether it be a sidewalk hot dog stand, a family hamburger joint or my favorite Asian restaurant.

New York Journal News reporter Kara Newman provided some background about the condiment nicknamed "Thai ketchup." Here's an excerpt:

[[The two most commonly-found brands are Huy Fong, which sports a white rooster on the label, and Shark. (Supposedly, the shark is in homage to the shark-infested waters off the coast of Sriracha). Shark brand is made in Thailand and is used widely there as well as imported to U.S. stores and restaurants. Huy Fong is made in California by a Vietnamese immigrant, David Tran, and is the U.S. favorite.]]

Sriracha is made of sun ripened chilies that are ground into a smooth paste with garlic. The sauce is nearly as thick as ketchup, which makes the squeeze bottle a handy way to deliver a spicy kick to your favorite foods. Speaking of ketchup, a little sriracha can add a nice kick to ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce without overpowering the other ingredients.

Newman's story featured recipes were adapted from Greg Gilbert, Jackson & Wheeler.

Sriracha Remoulade

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sriracha
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Whisk together until smooth. Serve as a dipping sauce with fried calamari rings.

Fried Calamari

1/2 cup calamari
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup semolina
Vegetable oil for frying
Salt and pepper

Soak calamari rings in milk for about 20 minutes; drain.

In a bowl, combine the flour and semolina. Dredge the calamari in the flour mixture, and shake off the excess. Heat the oil to 350 degrees, and fry the calamari until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper and serve with Sriracha Remoulade.

Sriracha Spicy Buffalo Wings

6 chicken wings
Oil for frying
3 tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1 tablespoons sriracha
1 tablespoons butter, softened
Baby mache or other lettuce to garnish

Fry the chicken wings until crispy. In a bowl, combine the red-hot sauce, sriracha, and butter. Toss the wings in the sauce and serve. Garnish with baby mache or other lettuce

Sriracha is also an excellent value. Amazon offers six 17-ounce bottles for about $20, or less than 20 cents an ounce. That's a lot of flavor for your dollar.

In summary, I grew up with pepper, salt and Tabasco pepper sauce on the table for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Did sriracha replace my bottle of Tabasco? Yes. Sriracha is hotter but with a light, sweet finish that sets it apart from the vinegar tang of other pepper sauces.

Rating: Five stars.
506007506007B001EO5ZHOACAXZ97QF4EBIE. Presotto "Senior Junior"4451326240000Not a Condiment, More Like a Sacrament.This bottle, or more appropriately, This Chalice, contains the true blood of the creator. This bottle is culinary mescaline. It is a life changing sauce of the gods. I pour nickle size blops on the back of my hand and slurp them off. Maybe I should rephrase that. Nah... I mean it, if you are even slightly spice friendly, get this. Some hipster dope will tell you that this is not "real" or "authentic" sriracha. You tell that ironic fixie riding trustafarian to go to hell. This is better. This is some next level chit, mang. Its not an abusive hot, you can really taste peppers, and garlic, Its not a macho, "blew out my o-ring" hot, but it gets the endorphins flowing, elevates your conscience and we become one with the universe. No, really, I like it. It is good.

Seriously, though, this is a spicy delight which, unlike many hot sauces offers a wealth of flavor. And a rooster.

Should I be stricken with an ailment and locked into my body unable to move, just pump this wonder through the feeding tube.

Yep, it's good.

506010506010B001EO5ZHOA3V1RPFR969KMMbsnms2251290384000Real. Delicious. Hot. Stuff...When having some Asian cuisine one day, I noticed this fiery concoction sitting on the table. I put some on my plate and started eating it with an with egg roll. I was instantly hooked :-)...
This is a very tasty Asian-style hot sauce. It has the consistency of ketchup, but packs some nice heat. It is not like a vinegar based Louisiana style sauce, nor is it like a Mexican style sauce (typically more smoky flavored). It has a unique flavor profile, and it's great! It's sweeter tasting, with a very pronounced chili pepper flavor and just a hint of garlic, that really compliments a variety of foods. I use it on eggs, sandwiches, Asian foods, chicken, salsas, pizza, etc... Also, for the size bottle you get, it's a good value. I bought a big 17oz bottle of it for less than $3.50 at my local Walmart. Recommended!

FYI, I have had dole, sun maid and sun date dates and these are by far the best I have tried! IMHO
505982505982B003ABTPCKA2HIG16ONFOCYpasserby0111313193600This is not deglet noorThese dates cannot be called ''deglet Noor'' unless they come from Algeria. Deglet noor comes exclusively from the Algerian desert and are known to be the best dates in the world. These are of lesser quality and have nothing to do with ''deglet Noor''

I received this item and every single box was broken. After reviewing the packing it was easy to tell that no one even considered that this irem would be totally damaged. It was not packaged in any kind of protective box to allow the item to be shipped safely.

However, I was disappointed that cashews were few and far between. Not sure if it is a general product issue or batch issue. In any case, not buying it again.

505990505990B000FAUOI8A5A4374R8I7NBPhilip Bolus1151341532800Melt-In-Your-Mouth Peppermint SticksI love these AMAZING King Leo Brand Peppermint Sticks sold by Candy Crate. They melt away in your mouth, from the first stick to the last. I've been ordering these from Candy Crate for years - first on their web site and now from Amazon. If you like peppermint, you should try these King Leo Brand Peppermint Sticks. I don't know how they make these peppermint sticks so soft, but make them they do - and they are mouth-watering. When I first ordered these peppermint sticks, I thought they would be hard like all the rest. Boy was I surprised. I put that first stick in my mouth and in just a few minutes, it was gone. Of course I generally break them in half before putting them in my mouth. That way I can savor them longer. The last order I placed in June 2012 was for 6 tins because I had run out of tins, and I hate to do that - leaving me without my favorite candy. And to top it off, these peppermint sticks are low in fat. What a bonus. Do watch out for the shipping costs because they tend to add up the more tins you order as these tins are heavy. I hope you enjoy these peppermint sticks as much as I do - I am constantly eating them throughout the day. I guess that is why I go through my boxes so quickly, and they may be high in sugar content, but I haven't gained a single pound from eating these sticks!

Everyone loves them and having them in the tin keeps them soft. I bought this for my 4 year old niece who is allegric to peanuts. Will definitely keep buying these every year.
505992505992B000FAUOI8AG4U11RFDY7LUVirginia Campbell0051322956800peppermint treat for kids of all agesI love peppermint, and the holidays would not be complete for me without a variety of marvelous minty treats! King Leo has been making peppermint sticks for over 100 years, and the dark blue tin with its royal lion logo is always a most welcome sight. This is a wonderful gift, but you must also buy one for yourself. There is something very soothing about taking the time to enjoy a peppermint stick. We all deserve the "me time" and this is a delightfully simple way to make that happen.

505994505994B0005YY6COA33802QU1RFIOSOur Lords United Meth0041296086400Knorr 4 Cheese Sauce MixI was really pleased to find this product for sale online because our local stores weren't carrying it this winter and I needed it for a cooking project with youth. The sauce mix is really good on its own and adds a lot to recipes. I thought the price was a little high compared to what I paid in the grocery store other times I bought it, but just the convenience of having the correct amount for my project shipped straight to my door made it all worthwhile.

505996505996B001NG332WAQ6AGWKWMTY8HPam Tee "mom,wife,fur-mom,book-blogger"1131329523200Okay but watch out for Food Dye and MSGRecently I ended up making Goya, Vigo, and Mahatma Yellow rice all within a few weeks, and I have to say that Vigo was our least favorite taste-wise. It wasn't bad, just milder than what we were used to. Less flavor and a lighter color.

What was more disappointing though was that Vigo uses both Red dye #3 and Yellow dye #4 as Sodium Sulfate (Sulfite, Sulphite), and more corn than I expect in rice.

In addition it contains something called "Plant Protein Hydrolyzed" which FoodFacts tells me is lingo for Tree Nuts.

So no more for us unfortunately. At least not until they drop the artificial dyes and nuts :(

505997505997B001NG332WA3IUW081KXD3PEpixels and bits1151253750400A versatile and flavorful saffron rice mix.Our children are always excited to find that Vigo Yellow Rice is on the menu. The smell alone will encourage a busy teenager to linger at home until at least after dinner. Typically, we have this rice with pork or chicken recipes. Leftovers lend themselves to a variety of uses such as casseroles, soups and even fried rice dishes. I love to add a bit of salsa to a bowl of leftover rice and heat it for a quick lunch. I cook this rice in a basic rice cooker with no problem at all - it is fully cooked and fluffy every time.
505998505998B001NG332WA1NYR9F1U6VKXLsurprisedmom2321310688000They have MSG!!!!!!I have used this brand for years and love the red beans and rice packet. But last night we were cooking up the yellow rice for the first time and my husband discovered MSG as one of the ingredients!!!!!!!! I was shocked! Lesson learned... I will read all of the packets ingredients before buying in the future. It will be sad if we can't enjoy these easy and delightful side dishes in the future. Though they list ingredients on this site, notice the disclaimer below. I would rather not support a business that uses these tactics. You decide for yourself.
505999505999B001NG332WA2JJGIJI8X6KRSPsboston7 "~ And so it Goes ~"0051311292800Best Rice I have EVER madeI have made this rice since I was a teenager in Boston. It has the most delicious flavor goes PERFECT with any Chicken or Seafood dish. If you cook it just right it should come out very moist and flavorful... the trick is to use butter and stir the seasonings often (make sure it is throughout the pot) I used to only find the rice this rice back home in Boston or in Florida when I would visit my Mom now you can get them here on Amazon this is GREAT!

BTW whenever there is a potluck I like to make this rice because EVERYONE loves it and you couldn't you just buy it anywhere.

506004506004B001EO5ZHOALNFHVS3SC4FVDarena Dorsey "Mom to 2 Boys"212551236556800Warning: Highly AddictiveI ran upon this in the grocery store and it looked like it would be good. I love spicy sauces.

I thought it would be good but this is WOW! It isn't just a hot sauce, it has flavor. It is so good. It's good on chicken and eggs. It is out of this world on cottage cheese, sounds like a strange combo but I haven't tried anything that it tasted so good on, the cool of the cottage cheese, the heat of the chili sauce, yum!

It does have a good bit of heat to it. I have to have something close by to drink because it does burn the tongue a little.

I'm addicted now and will be a lifelong lover of this chili sauce. I find myself looking through the refrigerator just looking for something to put my chili sauce on.

Yes, it's that good.
506005506005B001EO5ZHOA4PI4DZJSVF6QBianca101251264896000Gotta go with the Rooster!I have been eating this stuff for a decade and a half, ever since I worked in a teriyaki restaurant slinging yakisoba and udon soup bowls at the tender age of 18. There are lots of good reviews on this product already and I agree with all of them... this stuff is HOT but also TASTY. I ALWAYS have a bottle of this on hand. My latest favorite thing to do with this sauce is to mix it with an equal part of Frank's Red Hot and a splash of vinegar and use it to drown a plateful of pelmehni (Russian dumplings). That mixture, by the way, is also fantastic on wings. On it's own, Rooster sauce is a MUST for me in ANY curry... it adds heat and complements the flavor perfectly and I also love to drizzle a bit (just a bit) into my chicken soup (not weird....I used to dump truckloads of Rooster into my Udon noodle soup!). Really, the uses for the Rooster are endless.... but if you regularly cook things like stir fry or curry (any style) and you like a bit of kick.. this is a MUST HAVE pantry staple. Plus, it's fun to dare people to eat spoonfuls of it. :)

I'm hungry.
