When I married Superman over 17 years ago, I had no idea he had a secret obsession.
My first clue was about 6 months or so after we got married and he began to go to the grocery with me.
He would always go down the condiment isle and stand in front of the barbecue sauce, suggesting a new one, a different one, a ‘tastier’ one.
I would always say “Honey, we still have some at home.”
He would pout, and I would purchase sauce.
We have 11 different kinds of sauces in the fridge at the moment. Mustard barbecue sauce, apple butter barbecue sauce, sweet sauce, hot sauce, steak sauce, Oh…and lets not forget the Sriracha sauce that only people that have already burnt off their taste buds could eat.
Then, Superman found a sauce that I was interested in.
I fell in love with this sauce, and in the 15 years since, our fridge has never been without it.
This stuff is fantastic! It isn’t sticky sweet, it isn’t overpoweringly bold, and it isn’t understated either.
It is perfect!
But you know what is the best thing for me about this is?
About 2 years after I had been gobbling up this wonderful stuff, I finally read the label, and saw this little gem. It made this sauce even better for me.
So, when Country Bob’s got a hold of me and asked if I’d be willing to make something with their sauce, I jumped at the chance, ’cause Internet, they sent me 2…TWO… bottles of this deliciousness.
I have put this stuff in everything. Even soup.
Let me show you what I did this time.
First I took a pound of smoked sausage and chopped it into wee slices.
Then I took about ¾ a cup of Country Bobs.
And about ¾ a cup of maple syrup.
Pour it all into a skillet over medium high heat, and bring to a boil.
Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the sausage is heated through.
This made a lot of sauce, so you could put 2 pounds of sausage into the pot, and still have plenty of sauce.
You can also make this in the crock pot. Just dump it all in there and heat for about 2 hours.
This would make a great appetizer, or you could serve this over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes…or you could just eat it with a spoon.
Now for what Applie has been waiting for.
Country Bob’s is graciously allowing me to give away 2, 2 bottle prizes.
To enter, leave a comment letting me know how you would use this sauce if you had it in your fridge right now.
You have till Thursday at 8pm Eastern time to enter. One entry per person please.
Winners will be announced Friday morning after the nosy question.
