The Pantry: Teaspoon Willie’s

|

With so many products—everything from caffeinated beef jerky to bottles of cognac—coming across my desk, I see and taste a little bit of everything. But it’s unusual that I discover something I enjoy enough to A) write about and B) purchase for my own kitchen.

That said, a sample of Teaspoon Willie’s showed up recently, and ever since I’ve found myself steadily making my way through the bottle. Appropriately named Everything Sauce, I’ve found that the tomato-y blend peps up scrambled eggs, turkey sandwiches, barbecue chicken, tacos, sloppy Joes, and even salad dressing.

As far as I can tell, the savory applications are limitless, and each time I taste the slightly fiery, umami-rich sauce, I attempt to unlock the flavor profile (Denver-based owner Willie Ingram keeps the recipe a closely guarded secret). Best of all, the product is gluten-free, fat-free, and devoid of creepy things like MSG, high-fructose corn syrup, and preservatives.

Mark Your Calendar: The first-annual Teaspoon Willie’s Cook Off takes place August 28 (6 to 10 p.m.) at the Art Network Gallery. Tickets are $20 and proceeds benefit SAME Café.

Available at Whole Foods Market.
