    cooking Honey mustard - cooked?

    Has anyone ever done a honey mustard using the hot-fill method? Everything I see on the internet is just mix everything together and then refrigerate. I'd like to bottle some and avoid the refrigeration part without adding preservatives. I'm thinking the honey and vinegar should keep it shelf...

    Bourbon sauce

    Hello everyone. I'm looking for some ideas on creating a sweet and tangy bourbon sauce. I have never used  bourbon in my sauces before, so wanted to give this a go. Anyone have any "base" ideas or starter recipes they would like to share? I want this to be a little bit sweet, so maybe use honey...

    flavor Flavor & Heat

    Butter is your friend when it comes to a good wing sauce. Most of my sauces are mixed 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 with butter. Real butter too.

    tutorial How to determine your hot sauce cost and ingredient cost per bottle!

    I keep one spread sheet for each type of sauce I make. Then I use multiple tabs for each variation with the date. That way I can go back and see what I changed and when. This method keeps everything organized.

    condiment BBQ with Cherries

    Thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't thought of the orange zest and coriander. That gives me something to play around with.

    condiment BBQ with Cherries

    So a friend of mine asked me to make a BBQ sauce with cherries. The thing is, she doesn't want it hot. No heat.  :(   So that takes me out of my zone. I'm trying to think of what would go into it. Probably tomato based, onion, garlic, vinegar, then the cherries of course. Any thoughts...

    business LLC vs. Inc

    I just spoke with a lawyer and an accountant about this same thing. Their recommendation was to go S-corp for max personal liability. The S-corp is definitely more involved with the paperwork side, and will cost more at start up. But in the long run, it will protect you better.

    misc Selling by Pallet

    One of the popular standard pallet size 48" x 40". You can plan on using 95% of that space. I would recommend leaving 1" from the edges back to the product. You definitely don't want any boxes overhanging the pallet. Also, due to the weight I would stretch wrap AND band the product to the...

    Scaling up

    I made a larger batch this weekend, and the recipe scaled really well. I made 3 quarts this time, and only a minor tweak was needed. Thanks to SmokenFire for the advice to increase the size gradually. I took notes and updated my spreadsheet so I can go to 5 gallons next time.   Thanks again to...

    Scaling up

    Thanks everyone for the advice and the warm welcome. I do have a digital scale. I'm a huge Alton Brown fan, and he is really big on weighing ingredients, especially dry goods.    Time to head to the kitchen. A co-worker liked one of my trial batches, so I will make up a batch tonight. Just...
