Sunday, I made what proved to be a really delicious meal. First, I put 2 packages of cocktail sausages and a couple of celery stalks, cut up, into a crockpot around 10:00 am and turned them on low. Around 11:00, I added about 1 cup of brown sugar, stirring it around into the sausages. An hour later, I added another cup of brown sugar and let it sit on top.
While they were giving the kitchen a truly amazing smell, I boiled some rice in one pan and in another, I cooked a pot of chili beans with celery, red pepper flakes, onions, and a teaspoon of Captain Rodney’s Corazon del Fuego (“Heart of Fire”) Hot Sauce (Freaking HOT, just as advertised! – A tsp. may actually be a bit too powerful for some people.).
When everything struck me as just about there, I popped some rolls into the oven.
When it came time to make the plates, I put a large nest of rice on each, then filled them with the beans and topped off with the sausages/celery. I tossed a roll on each plate and had the Captain on standby for the brave few who put a little more on. My daughters absolutely LOVE hot sauce, so they were actually even putting this HOT sauce on their bread.
It is delicious, but be warned – it packs a serious punch. We can’t wait to try it with Chili and hot wings.
Tonight, I cooked some thin pork chops in olive oil and invited Captain Rodney to the meal again. He was perfectly wonderful with the pork chops as well.
Another Captain Rodney product that’s more delicious than it has a right to be is Captain Rodney’s Boucan Glaze – pictured below. I first tried this once when my mom gave me a bottle. I served it with chicken wings and never quite got over how amazing it was.
I recently found Captain Rodney products in my local grocery store (Kroger) and felt like doing cartwheels down the aisle. It would have embarassed my daughter and probably ended my career as a whatever it is I do.
In case the Captain hasn’t taken over the sauce aisle in your store, click HERE to order away. Be sure you get the two products I’ve named here first. I’m 100 percent certain everything Captain Rodney makes is out of this world fantastic, I just haven’t had a chance to try them all yet.
I’m joyfully working on it, though!
Edit: I just went back to the site and saw that the Captain also makes Pepper Jelly. Do you know how amazing Pepper Jelly is on cornbread?! Unbelievable.
