Last February my wife Liz created Dad’s Westcoast Wildfire Awesome Sauce to help keep the wolf from our door, and p2pnet online.
It’s a Sauce piquante like no other, and guaranteed to add savour and flavour to any meal.
Not wanting to pollute ourselves or others we decided to create a product which has no additives, pesticides, chemicals, artificial ‘flavours’ or preservatives.
Just awesome goodliness …
What can you use it or on? Here are just a few ideas from happy customers.
Why hot sauce? We had a fridge-full of other sauces because I was always looking for the perfect combination of heat and flavour.
Liz is an amazing cook, and, after much experimentation and blendings of 15 different herbs and spices, she arrived at Dad’s Westcoast Wildfire Awesome Sauce.
Within a half a year, we also launched Dad’s Westcoast Rainforest Awesome Sauce, for those who like a very gentle heat.
For sale at local outdoor markets and retail outlets, our sauces are now available across Vancouver Island and select locations on the BC mainland.
But there was a problem. We had requests from other countries and other parts of Canada.
A case weighs quite a bit and is consequently expensive to ship by mail.
However, Star, one of the ladies behind the counter at our local Lake Cowichan Canada Post office had noticed that during Christmas, certain of her customers were sending gifts of home-made jam in padded envelopes which was obviously far less expensive then in heavy jars.
Which means we can now offer mail-order services to Canada and beyond.
And we’re about to add two new products to our lineup The Über Hot Armageddon sauce, and Dad’s Westcoast Embers Awesome Sauce, positioned halfway between our Wildfire and Rainforest versions.
