The amazing folks at Gracious Gourmet sent me some samples of their outstanding products for review. Gracious Gourmet sells top quality, beautifully made, absolutely delicious chutneys, pestos, spreads and tapenades.
The first one we tried out was Chile Red Pepper Tapenade.
It is excellent. I love the fiery flash of flavor in the after bite. It is really tasty right out of the jar. The flavor of the roasted peppers is really good.
Roasted red peppers are combined with garlic, cilantro and parsley and slowly cooked in olive oil with mild and spicy chile peppers. There is a hint of heat at the finish which will never overwhelm the palate.
Dried Fruit Chutney. It is not to sweet, You can really taste the dried fruits. I can taste each one individually. I guess that is because they started with dried fruits. It makes each fruit stand out.
A mélange of dried cherries, cranberries, dates, and apricots combined with fresh apples. Indian-inspired spices enhance the fruits and produce a full-flavored complement for many foods.
Third is my absolute favorite. Balsamic Four Onion Spread has amazing flavor, really really excellent. People that don't like onions would love this one. The four types of onions dance across your tongue. The flavor lingers slightly making you want another taste.
Four different onions caramelized with balsamic vinegar, sugar and a special blend of spices complement an endless list of dishes.
The last one we tried actually made my husband do the "Dang that's good dance" you know the one when something tastes so good you just gotta do a little dance. Fig Almond Spread has a very nice fig flavor. I love the mix of figs and and almonds.
A luscious pairing of dried figs, fresh fig puree, and sliced almonds with hints of orange, lemon and lime enlivens everything from duck to ice cream.
