Sweet corn is always one of summer’s greatest food pleasures. Rick’s Picks’ Handy Corn Relish enhances that pleasure in the form of a truly versatile condiment that is combined with the delicate heat of fresh aji dolce peppers. Great as a relish or salsa, the spread is tangy-yet- balanced adding a boost of flavor to Southwestern tinged chicken or fish and complements the ingredients such as sharp cheddar, bacon, and even shellfish like clams and shrimp.
Perfect for dinner parties and summer BBQs, the Handy Corn Relish also acts as a great dip with crackers or atop a crostini with ricotta cheese and aleppo pepper.
Honey Habanero Pepper Sauce

Crafted By: Chris Gindo
Los Angeles, CA
Lusciously sweet with a fiery finish, Gindo’s Honey Habanero Pepper Sauce is as complex as it is delicious. Inspired by the dishes of Belize, this golden sauce consists of fresh habaneros, sweet yellow and red bell peppers, as well as delicate Fleur De Sel and pure Himalayan Pink Salt.
The robust flavor lends itself well to barbecuing, marinades, wings, and for anyone who likes their heat sweet. Our team has also found the Honey Habanero combination a winning ingredient as the base of a ceviche, added to corn bread batter, or as a complex aioli perfect for onion rings and fried calamari.
Smoky Sherry Onion Spread
The Gracious Gourmet
Crafted By: Nancy Wekselbaum
The goal of Gracious Gourmet is to create a line of speciality food products that transform ordinary dishes into exceptional ones and the Smoky Sherry Onion spread exemplifies this approach. Sweet yellow onions are slowly cooked to a marmalade consistency with background smoky notes of sherry wine resulting in a sweet and savory taste that can be applied to a magnitude of dishes.
The spread can elevate the simplest grilled cheese sandwich and grilled vegetables or be integrated into more restaurant driven offerings including compound butter for roast chicken, as a marinade, or even folded into dough resulting in flavorful breads.
