BBQ has become synonymous with American festivities and celebrations centered on food. Not only does BBQ include burgers and hot dogs, but also delicious slow-cooked meats such as pulled pork, beef brisket and smoked chicken and even vegetables, too.
Timely for the “BBQ season” when people head outdoors to do their cooking, Traina Foods has recently launched a new line of BBQ sauces featuring two distinct flavors — Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce and Sun Dried Plum BBQ Sauce, both made with Traina Foods’ authentically grown real dried fruit grown and dried in the California sun. The bold and tangy Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce pairs well with meats that have been grilled or slow-smoked, such as pulled pork, and it can be used as a dipping sauce for anything from poultry to vegetables, the latter for those focusing on a plant-based lifestyle. With BBQ salads becoming mainstream on menus around the country, a BBQ chicken salad using Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce is sure to be a hit in the home kitchen or a BBQ pot luck, too.
The Sun Dried Plum BBQ Sauce offers a spicy yet smoky result with a smooth and balanced tart-sweet flavor, thanks to a blend of tomatoes and herbs incorporated with the Sun Dried Plums. It can be used as a marinade, basting sauce or event a condiment. Think Asian-American fusion chicken wings or beef short ribs. This sauce also complements vegetable dishes, such as a vegetable lo-mein dish. Both sauces are made without high-fructose corn syrup; they are also kosher and gluten-free.
When it comes to BBQ, there are no limits! Many Americans have taken their love for BBQ to the next level — making BBQ pizzas, BBQ salads and BBQ vegetables. BBQ is no longer strictly based on meats, so plant-based dieters can also experiment with roasted or smoked vegetables topped with Traina Foods new BBQ sauces. For more, visit www.trainafoods.com.
