    So i was driving down the road here in northeastern Connecticut where we have a rich agricultural community. I love buying local produce from the local farmers when I can, and I drive to Providence, Rhode Island to Whole Foods Market there to do all of my other shopping. I stopped off at a local restaurant to eat lunch like I do a couple times a week and got the pleasure of trying these wonderful all natural sauce products that a local chef in the area produced. The sauces are all natural, have no preservatives, and are made with local produce! I got to try three sauces; the chipotle sauce, the spicy barbeque sauce from the “condiments from hell” line of sauces, and the “dragon’s blood elixir” hot sauce. The hot sauce was unbelievable and I ended up finding out that there was quite a buzz about this stuff. The hot sauce has an apple flavor to it and is so flavorful and tangy. I had a pulled pork sandwich made with it and it was so delicious. The restaurants are all cooking with it and it is being sold at a lot of other local grocery stores and farmer’s markets. I found their website at: and they have a twitter/facebook account. I just am amazed at how great of products these are and they are all natural, and locally produced! We’ve got to work together to keep products like this as mainstream as we can. Please provide any support that you can, I want to support my local food artisans!

    First welcome to ILIS, Tom. I appreciate what you have to say about these small companies and giving them support. There are so many out there that need our help to stay in business. I will have to check out their website in the near future.

    I have a lot to get to from the show first, and hopefully will have some stuff tomorrow evening.
