We’re always trying to find ways to kick the flavor of our meals up a notch, while still staying healthy. A sauce or relish is sometimes all it takes to elevate a meal to a whole new level of flavor.
An important thing to us though, is to try and steer clear (as far as possible) of store-bought condiments, and make our own instead.
Homemade always trumps store-bought! Who’s with me?
