There’s no shortage of interesting stuff to buy in the Okanagan and foodies lust for our locally grown products. Firecracker Jacks is one such product, and this week, we tell you why. article/photograph by Stephanie Seaton
An Effortless Accompaniment
As this is our first issue of Summerland Online, we will be building up the ‘Shop Local’ section over time, but in the interim we couldn’t resist pointing out that Firecracker Jack’s from Naramata is without a doubt the best barbeque sauce this side of Texas.
Firecracker Jack’s has no additives, and no artificial preservatives. Made with fresh Okanagan peppers (in truly a shop locally spirit), the sauce is handcrafted in Naramata, with all natural flavouring and all local fresh ingredients.
This will fast become your favorite sauce or marinade for meat, pork or chicken. It can be added directly to hamburger meat, it makes for the tastiest kabobs, is excellent on pork chops and is superb as a marinade. It is also the perfect accompaniment for veggie burgers and you can add it to your chili to give it an extra zing.
Kevin Rudolph from Naramata is the proud owner of Firecracker Jack’s and as he says, “the one thing carnivores and vegetarians have in common is Firecracker Jack’s BBQ sauce!”
