SOME LIKE IT HOT: All Jamaicans know there’s no finer way to jazz up a home-cooked meal than with a great condiment. Sammi’s Gourmet Treats has some terrific options with your name written all over them. For starters, savour the delectable delight of the from-scratch Escoveitch Pickle Sauce (a palate cleanser best served with fried fish and chicken) or the Spicy Tamarind Jam (full of spicy, tangy sweet fruits). Then sample the lunch table-ready Pineapple Jam, Pomegranate Java Plum Jam or the Orange Coconut Jam, made from heart-healthy oranges combined with refreshing island coconuts. Find Sammi’s Gourmet Treats on Facebook and Instagram or visit their home page at sammistreats.com.
SPICE IT UP: Based in Yallahs, St. Thomas, A Taste of the Caribbean Limited (manufacturers of the Dunson’s line of products) stakes its claim as suppliers of the most tantalizing sauces this side of the region. They carry a hefty stock: in addition to their Jamaican Jerk Sauce and Jamaican Jerk Barbecue Sauce, they are known for their Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce and Spicy Tamarind Sauce, alongside the finger-lickin’ Jamaican Brown Stew Sauce.
