Featured Ingredients

Dark Brown Sugar

Though it is often used interchangeably with light brown sugar, dark brown sugar actually has a few notable differences.

To start with, dark brown sugar contains more molasses than light brown sugar, giving it a richer flavor. In addition, the added molasses gives dark brown sugar a deeper color and a more moist texture. As a result, dark brown sugar is often used in baking recipes that call for a deep, caramelized flavor.

It can also be used in savory dishes to add sweetness and depth of flavor.

However, because of its distinct taste, dark brown sugar is not always a suitable substitute for light brown sugar. When substituting dark brown sugar for light brown sugar in a recipe, it is important to keep in mind that the finished dish will have a noticeably different flavor.

Sambal Oelek

Sambal oelek is a type of chili paste that originates from Indonesia. It is made by grinding fresh chilies together with other ingredients like salt, garlic, and vinegar.

Sambal oelek can be used as a condiment or ingredient in cooking. It adds a spicy, savory flavor to food and can be used in many different dishes. When used as a condiment, sambal oelek is often served alongside rice or noodles. It can also be added to soup or stir-fries.

In addition to its traditional uses, sambal oelek is also becoming popular as an ingredient in more Western dishes like burgers and tacos.

Whether you use it as a condiment or cooking ingredient, sambal oelek will add some heat to your meal!
