Zing went the strings of my heart

For Christmas you will all be receiving a bottle of gourmet sauce from North Carolina. It’s called Zing and you’ll love it. I have only tasted the diet version of course but you can let me know if you want the heavy duty variety. I intend to buy a case of each.

Brits, this sauce is more bitty and gritty than HP Fruity Sauce but less lumpy than Branston Pickle. Yanks, it combines cider vinegar with the fire of hot peppers and the sweetness of raisins.It is not as hot as Sriracha and is the color of black bean sauce.  I mixed it with my vegetable chili at lunchtime and my cous cous this evening and I am sure I can find a way to incorporate it into breakfast tomorrow morning.

10 delicious calories in 2 tsps.


This wonderful North Carolina condiment is made just up the road from the Duke Diet and Fitness center and is on their approved list because it is low in both calories and sodium. The creation of a Malaysian family who emigrated to the Carolinas, I have no idea why it is not world-famous.
