Authenticity isn’t something you can manufacture, pour in, or add a pinch of. It’s there or it isn’t, and one of our newest items on our shelf has it – authenticity in bounds and nothing to hide: Spicemode.
The thing about Spicemode is that it’s made with fresh ingredients; real herbs and spices grown locally whenever possible. Many of their spices are unground & whole they ground, for the purest flavor possible. They are lovers of midwestern farms and get their aromatic ingredients from them to craft the base – all in small batches, by hand and without using preservatives. There are no shortcuts for Spicemode, it’s all traditionally slow cooked – caramelized onions and garlic, ginger, chillies – culminating into a truly wonderful jar of authentically done Indian sauces. Spicemode say it’s a delicate process, and we knowingly agree – making a great tasting jar of real sauce like these is nearly impossible to come by in such a convenient package. Meats, beans, veggies, simmering sauces, tapanades, spreadables, chilis – anyway you use Spicemode’s sauces they’re delicious.
Right now, we carry three of their mixes. The Madras, is a creamy sauces that mirrors what is crafted daily in Indian homes; it’s tasty in stir-fry, lovely mixed into roasted veggies, or soaked into protein. Their Vindaloo is a twist on the classic, it’s their signature sauce, and takes up a great dance of vinegar, brown sugar and spice – it’s also irresistible with chicken. The Masala is our go-to sauce at home, it’s punchy with real flavor and simple enough to nibble through – top rice or naan, cook with veggies or meat, versatile and great in every way.
