Proudly introducing 3 new mustard sauces at 39th Winter Fancy Food Show

Each January 1st we collectively usher in a new year, bringing us refreshing excitement and renewed energy for all of the possibilities that are in store. A new year represents the opportunity for growth and change; to recommit to what we love about life. Here at Fischer & Wieser, we feel that excitement as well, as each new year begins our next product launch cycle, giving us the opportunity to share what we love with the world.

We're introducing our new mustard sauces at the 39th Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, January 19-21, 2013.  Look for them to go on sale on our website February 1!

We’re introducing our new mustard sauces at the 39th Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, January 19-21, 2013. Look for them to go on sale on our website February 1, 2014.

This January, we are proud to introduce a fabulous new family of mustard sauces!  Four distinctly flavorful sauces make up this dynamic family. Our award winning Sweet, Sour and Smokey Mustard Sauce serves as the patriarch of the family that includes three new and exciting members:   Hickory & Cracked Black Pepper Mustard Sauce, Raspberry & Wildflower Honey Mustard Sauce and Salted Caramel Mustard Sauce. Each of these great sauces has something unique to offer, making this a perfectly well-rounded family to join the culinary adventure.

The anchor of this family is our Sweet, Sour & Smokey Mustard Sauce.  Among the favorites for our CEO and President Case D. Fischer, he said about the mustard, “It was our first mustard sauce and it’s a consistent winner.” Included in its accolades are two awards from the Napa Valley World Wide Mustard Competition and one medal from the World Wide Mustard Competition, put on by the National Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin. It seems to be an instant favorite of all who try it, and is praised for its varied uses. This sauce pours new life into classic recipes like potato salad and deviled eggs and is great as a dip for sausage, cheese and pretzels or poured over your favorite grilled meat. We thought it fitting that such a strong sauce would be the herald of this new family.

Our first new mustard sauce, Hickory and Cracked Black Pepper Mustard Sauce, boldly delivers a sharp savory culinary experience. Smokey mustard combines with the rich spice of cracked black pepper and burst of mustard seeds to deliver remarkable flavor. A few of us call this, “the ninja of mustard sauces,” as, with one bite, it delivers an uncontested kick of amazing flavor. A few favorite uses of this mustard sauce are to add an extra level of richness to even the best of charcuterie trays, and as a spread to bring well-stacked turkey or beef sandwiches to life.

 

Raspberry & Wildflower Honey Mustard Sauce over Crusted Salmon---what a treat!

Next, we have our new Raspberry & Wildflower Honey Mustard Sauce – a name that sets your mind ablaze, just as much as the sauce does your taste buds. This re-imagined honey mustard combines the sweetness of honey made from wildflowers with the tartness of raspberries for an exciting twist. While making this sauce, we knew we wanted to use wildflower honey but then quickly realized it needed an extra something to make it special – and raspberry does just that! With its beautiful maroon color and pleasant flavor, this sauce enhances any dish, especially fish or as a base to make a nice homemade vinaigrette.

It's amazing what a little creativity can do! First we develop a fantastic Salted Caramel Mustard Sauce, then we develop an amazingly delicious dessert to use it in! You gotta try this!

Finally, to round out the family of four, we have our new Salted Caramel Mustard Sauce. Now, you may be thinking, “Really? Caramel  and mustard?” Yes. Really. And yes, it is good. The initial tastes of sea salt and caramel are rounded out by the tangy mustard that brings this sauce together. You can use the sauce any way you would use a honey mustard sauce, but here’s a secret: try it on vanilla ice cream for something delightfully different.

As you can see, we have a lot to be excited about in this new  year – and we think you do too. So, why not add, “Be more culinary adventurous,” to your list this year, and see how these great mustard sauces can fulfill that quest. And while you’re at it, tell us where in your adventure these mustard sauces have taken you – and we’ll do the same!

Happy New Year and Happy new mustards – Enjoy!

Moroccan Tagine Starter

Chicken or beef can easily be slow-simmered in our Moroccan Tagine Starter, using either a tagine, slow cooker, Dutch oven or electric skillet.

Chicken or beef can easily be slow-simmered in our Moroccan Tagine Starter, using either a tagine, slow cooker, Dutch oven or electric skillet.

The rich seasonings of this starter… are so delicious and so easy to use with a slow cooker. Unique coriander herbs seep effortlessly into beef or fowl and deliver a sensational aromatic flavor; just pour over a chuck roast in your slow cooker, and when done, serve with rice!

From Squidoo.com/Moroccan Cooking, “Tagine [prounounced 'tuh-jheen'] cooking is very straightforward, and uses a minimal amount of water to stew the food inside. The food that you place inside the Tagine will need to be cooked for several hours, with the lid firmly closed.

You will need to season your Tagine before you use it for the first time and, once completed, it is ready to cook your food.

There are hundreds of different stews which can be cooked in the Tagine; however, they all take several hours to cook in a low preheated oven.

You will need to layer the ingredients in the Tagine, and place a small amount of liquid to create the sauce. Never attempt to speed the cooking process up by increasing the temperature of the oven.

Patience is essential when learning how to cook with a Tagine, and there are several cheaper cuts of meat which can be used with fantastic results. You should leave the lid on the Tagine until you are ready to serve, and many people serve the meal directly from the Tagine.”

We recently came across a beautiful website that caught our eyes, in the form of Edible Style, a business owned and operated by food stylist, Wendy Blasdel, Hollywood, Ca. After reading with much interest, we approached Wendy via an email, asking her if she would be interested in trying our sauces and if she thought there would be a place for them on her TV show schedule. After all, she’s done food styling since 1983 for so many wonderful TV shows and movies, to mention a few, The Thornbirds, Christmas Vacation, Mountain Man, Designing Women, Joe vs. The Volcano,  Dances With Wolves, City Slickers, Jurassic Park, Twilight, Star Trek [pilot and series], Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Doogie Howser, Frasier, Cheers,and many more.

When she agreed, we were thrilled, so we began the process of deciding what to send  that would best fit the dishes needed for her schedule. We sent some of our best-sellers and we were very pleased with what she did with them! She used our Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a La Charra  in a recipe for “Grilled chicken and veggie Tostada with Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a la Charra.” (Please click on the “read more” link on her blog to see the recipe).

BIG, BOLD RED SOPPIN’ SAUCE

Our unique blend of spices creates a versatile sauce that can be applied to any of your favorite meats whether grilling, broiling, or baking. Enjoy!

“Great to slather on aa slab of sirloin, t-bone, or even a filet mignon
before placing on the grill! Very moist & tasty!”
********************************************************************************************************
The key to the deliciousness of this sauce is right in the name. Our Spicy Garlic Steak & Grilling Sauce has a wonderful garlic flavor and combination of spices that give it a nice tangy finish; it’s got just the right amount of flavor, and not too much spice. This is a steak sauce for those who appreciate flavor without major heat. Enjoy!
“For garlic lovers! This is a knock out on kabobs, grilled chicken, pork or any flavor of chops or vegetables. Just right on the spices. Mmmm!”
********************************************************************************************************
Texas is synonymous with barbeque and Fischer & Wieser honors that tradition with the authentic Texas Pit BBQ Sauce. After years of sampling pit barbeque at Texas’ most legendary joints, Fischer & Wieser perfected a sauce that pays homage to those smokehouses while introducing a unique chile, the Pasilla de Oaxaca, that is medium-hot and known for its rich-flavor.
“This is my favorite sauce! It is nicely HOT but not on fire and not too sweet.
It is my go to sauce for easy dinner that makes an impression.
Perfect complement for chicken, pork, beef and venison.”
*******************************************************************************************************
Pronounced ‘Puh-see-uh,’ this little Mexican chile is ideal for sauces. Fischer & Wieser’s ¡Especial! Pasilla Chile Finishing Sauce blends pasilla chiles with Roma tomatoes, almonds and pineapple to create your next ‘go-to’ sauce for any type of meat. Gluten Free.
“This sauce is great on chicken in a slow-cooker, especially if you love a little HEAT! Shred the chicken and wrap a flour tortilla around it for great chicken tacos!”
*******************************************************************************************************
Our Pomegranate & Mango Chipotle Sauce blends antioxidant-rich pomegranates with sweet mango and spicy chipotle peppers to make a gourmet sauce that is fat free, delicious and good for you. Top grilled chicken, roasted pork and baked fish; it also makes a great stir fry sauce. Enjoy! Gluten Free.
“This sauce is one of my favorites on hot wings! Great flavor combo with just the right amount of heat!”
*******************************************************************************************************
We are famous for combining fruit with chipotle, but bacon? Even we didn’t realize what a winner we had on our hands until we took a bite. Bacon is accented by the sizzle of chipotle peppers, sweet molasses and black pepper to create a flavorful barbecue sauce that is ideal for grilling and barbecuing. Enjoy!
THIS sauce is truly outstanding. I took a couple of bottles when visiting my “Mr. Cookout” son a while back. Now it’s his favorite!  He used the Smokehouse Bacon Chipotle to baste what he loves to cook most, grilled chicken, and it was the best! Now it’s my whole family’s favorite. Love it on grilled pork tenderloin, too.

Loyal Customer Uses Raspberry Chipotle in Chanukah Brunch

A closer look at the chocolate cake!

We love it when we hear from loyal customers using our products in easy recipes for special family celebrations! That’s just what Ellen Ingber did! She posted the following on our facebook page:

Ellen Ingber’s Chanukah Brunch table, featuring Fischer & Wieser products in her delicious menu!

  • Just wanted to let you know that F&W made it to our belated Chanukah Brunch table. The Roasted Rasperry Chipotle Sauce over cream cheese stood out on the dip table. I made the Apricot Orange Marmalade Cheesecake Bars which didn’t set properly. I probably over beat it which caused too many air bubbles. I scraped out the filling and served it as a custard which turned a disaster into a success. But the piece de resistance was the Roasted Raspberry Chocolate Cake. I used a devils food cake recipe. I didn’t want to use sherry and forgot to get chocolate sauce so I used caramel. It was unbelievable! Too bad I didn’t see that martini recipe till today. It would have been a great end to the day! By the way, my official taste tester, husband Larry Fox, just asked what I was going to try next.
    Ellen

    • Tonights dinner: I had some Roasted Raspberry Sauce left over and some chicken tenders. Marinated the chicken for 5 hours in just enough sauce to cover it. Sprayed a baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Brushed the chicken with some sauce. Baked for 10 minutes. Turned the chicken and brushed some more. Baked for 10 more minutes. Served with tomatoes and peppers sauted in olive oil, garlic, and onion and some brunch leftover noodle pudding. Another easy meal a la F&W. Larry thanks you!

    We also thank you, Ellen. Loyal customers such as you are treasured by us at Fischer & Wieser!
