Turn up the heat with Yulicious sauces

At last weekend’s Home & Garden show at Cal Expo, the thousands of curious visitors who packed the exhibition halls could choose from a complete house remodel to a Veg-O-Matic food processor to jars of garlic seasoning, and everything in between.

We stopped by one small stand and chatted with Sylvester Ewell, whose 5-year-old Elk Grove company makes a line of “premium gourmet sauces” (mild, spicy and hot) bottled under the Yulicious label. He bills it as “an alternative to barbecue sauce.” One taste, and then two, convinced us. We’d better taste it one more time. Yow, that’s good stuff!

“It’s made from a family recipe and you can use it on everything — fish, pork, beef, lamb, chicken,” he said.

It’s about $6 a bottle at Nugget Markets, Raley's, Bel Air, Corti Bros. Market and Oaks Hardware. Or order it by the half-case or case at www.yuliciousgourmet.com.

One reviewer at the heat-centric website www.iloveitspicy.com noted, “One thing for sure from my personal experience — if you try it, you want to buy it.”
