Two German families teamed up in the late 20′s (yup, that was back in the 20th Century) and started making jams and jellies from the harvests of their orchards. It was the beginning of a long history of two families working together and later growing a business that is still family owned and operated. From the wide open spaces of Texas we included four of Fischer & Wieser’s products in this year’s Specialty Food collection here at If Only…a fine store. Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce is the #1 selling condiment in Texas and an award winner. It’s the product that catapulted the company into food stardom. A blend of raspberries and chipotle peppers, it is smoky, sweet and spicy-great on salmon, chicken, and pork. It’s gluten free, too! Chipotle Chili Ketchup can be used as a dipping sauce as well as ketchup. Its blend of chilies and Roma tomatoes make it a tasty treat unlike the “57Variety”. I like it on a grilled ground beef patty. We also carry Pasilla Chili Finishing Sauce, which is made from little Mexican chilies, Roma tomatoes, almonds and pineapple. It is gluten free and delivers unique and definable flavors. A Salsa Verde Ranchera rounds out our offerings. It is an all natural and gluten free salsa made with medium hot green tomatillo peppers, great for dipping chips or as a topper for chicken.
Gift Idea Number Thirteen: Pair the Salsa Verde Ranchera with Suckle Busters for a bold gift duo. Or use one of our great itty bitty cloth bags and fill it with F&W. The bag is a multi-tasker and can be used over and over again. Stylin’, functional, and the contents are delicious!
