Homemade Sweet Spiced Soy Sauce
$8/jar (8 oz)
What is sweet spiced soy sauce and how do you use it? Sweet spiced soy sauce (复制酱油) is made by slowly infusing soy sauce with a variety of spices. The precise blend varies depending on the cook, but I like to use star anise, black and green cardamom, sand ginger, bay leaf, fennel seeds, Sichuan pepper, cinnamon, and fennel seeds (inspired by cookbook author Fuchsia Dunlop). I simmer the sauce with raw brown sugar to add sweetness and minerality, and allow it to slowly reduce to the consistency of thin maple syrup. The result is deliciously aromatic, and perfect for use in marinades for meat, sauces for noodles and rice, salad dressings, and as an all-purpose stir-fry sauce.
Homemade Sichuan Chili Oil
$8/jar (8 oz)
What is Sichuan chili oil and how do you use it? Sichuan chili oil is made by slowly infusing neutral oil with a variety of spices and aromatics. The precise blend varies depending on the cook, but I like to use garlic, ginger, star anise, bay leaf, Sichuan pepper, cinnamon, cumin and cloves (inspired by the brilliant culinary blog Woks of Life). I pour the hot infused oil over a blend of freshly toasted árbol chili flakes and gochugaru (Korean chili flakes), and allow it to continue infusing for at least 48 more hours. The resulting oil is deliciously spicy and complex, perfect to add a kick to any marinade, sauce, dressing, or dip, for drizzling over any meal as a spicy garnish. It is also the best popcorn topping ever.
