Sweet and Hot Sauce with LunaGrown Apricot Jam
I love stir-fry. The varied flavors and consistencies of the vegetables, the textures, and the colors. Stir fry feeds your eyes and your belly! With all the flavors fighting for the lead, it’s important to have a sauce that supports all nuances.
LunaGrown Apricot Jam is the perfect base to build a beautifully sweet and hot sauce. This sauce can be incorporated into your stir fry creating a central theme for all your vegetables to work off of. This sauce is also great for dipping, or as a glaze for wings and ribs.
For the brave, this sauce makes a nice addition to a slice of creamy cheesecake. A gentle sweetness with a bit of heat. The perfect balance to the sweet creaminess of the cheesecake.
It’s the Apricot Jam that really makes this sauce different. The subtle flavors in the apricot jam bring an air of mystery and newness to this sweet and hot sauce.
This beautiful sauce recipe can be easily doubled. Make this sauce in advance for special occasions or BBQs, it will keep up to a week in your refrigerator! Delicious use of LunaGrown Apricot Jam.
