My Italian man and I visited his sister in-law at work, she works for a fine foods company called Sandhurts. They distribute and sell products like succulent olives, sweet artichokes, tinned ‘Sole Mare’ tuna you can eat straight from the tin, nothing needs to be added to this simple pleasure. Plump & juicy sun dried tomatoes and this time I came across semi sun dried cherry tomatoes, which I have never seen before, I cant wait to pop the jar open to taste them. They also import tantalizing ‘Mutti’ tomato products straight from Parma in Italy, you can taste the richness from the earth and the warmth of the sun have combined to provide you with this unique fruit. Almost anything Italian that you would need for your pantry they will have it and because we are family she took us to the store attached to the business (which is also open to the public). We were like kids in a candy store, the car was loaded up as though we were setting up our own store. But it was all for us, to be created into beautiful meals.
Last Australia Day we had more people than you could fit in our 2 bedroom apartment over for a bbq. I made a big hamburger feast with home made patties, 2 types of cheeses, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, caramelized onions, flipped eggs, crispy bacon, pineapple slices, pickles, beetroot, a few relishes, coleslaw and my own Bundaberg rum bbq sauce. I thought I would share the recipe for the sauce.
The recipe is simple, but you do need to season well and constantly taste the sauce while it is cooking to make it to your liking. I added more chilli because I like it spicier.
Let me know how it turns out and if you added anything to make it your own. If you need any advice leave a comment.
