If this were Cosmo, I could tell you what Fischer & Wieser’s Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce is best at, but since this is Gourmet News, let’s just observe that it’s red, and it introduces itself just as sweet as can be, but then you taste a soft heat, and it finishes with a long, slow, sweet burn on your lips. Oh, yes, it’s saucy.
I tried it first with a duck, and yes, it was perfectly fine with duck, nothing to complain of there. But then a few nights later, I put it on the table with some pan-roasted pork chops, and oh sweet mama, this sauce takes pork to a place where pigs do not get to go.
For a Saturday night supper, serve it with Roland All Natural Barley Couscous. It’s incredibly easy — you just pour some boiling water over it, let it sit for a few minutes, and then fluff it with a fork — and it will not distract from the main event. Plate your pork on top of the couscous and lay the Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce down next to it. Garnish with a green salad with a simple vinaigrette. But before you do all this, run the linens through the laundry and get yourself into the shower. It’s gonna be a long night; better start out fresh.
