Condiments We Love
Sweet and spicy condiments are great complements to vegetable meals. Hot sauce, chowchow, pepper sauce, and relishes all add a tangy bite to squash, succotash, butter beans, and other mild flavors. Greens, especially, are enhanced by peppery sauces or sweet relishes. Supermarkets and specialty stores carry a wide variety of products, but pepper sauce, the simplest of the bunch, is the hands-down favorite of restaurants and home cooks across the South. It reigns supreme at our tasting table as well, but we also like homemade chowchow and Wickles Hoagie & Sub Sandwich Relish for topping peas and greens.
