When I first heard of Tonguespank spices, I thought it was just another spice that you used when cooking. WRONG! Tonguespank spices are condiments that are used much like salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and hot sauce. I think you get the picture. In their literature, it states that one of their best comparisons would be "dry hot sauces". And this is what peaked my interest in trying their product.
Hubby puts hot sauce on everything. So I thought this might be a nice alternative for us. We tried the Smoky Bourbon Table Blend and the Garlic Grappa Table Blend from the Liquor & Heat Collection (based on liquor-infused hot peppers).
My first impression was wow the Smoky Bourbon smells hot, and the Garlic Grappa had a less intense pepper smell, very pleasant, but I could still smell a little of the 'heat'.
I stir fried some chicken, and we gave it a go. Hubby went right in and sprinkled the Smoky Bourbon on his chicken. I was a little more reserved and tried on it on a small piece. It definitely had a 'bite' to it, but I liked it. It was a little hot for me. Hubby on the other hand thought it tasted 'pretty good'. And if you get a 'pretty good' out of my husband when it comes to food, then that's pretty much a two thumbs up.
Next I tried the Garlic Grappa, and that was more to my liking. Upon first bite I thought, this is good and would be really good on eggs. Hubby also liked the Garlic Grappa.
This morning I tested my theory with both spices on some egg whites. Both were really a nice addition to my eggs. And I will definitely be using these spices with future dishes, especially now that I'm trying to eat a little more clean (which means less sauces), and I'm finding that spices are a nice addition to dressing up my food.
