You may remember about a year ago that I was able to review Skillet Bacon Jam, created by a local food truck here in Washington. Well, they have recently added to their family with the new Skillet Pumpkin Sauce flavors in Thai Coconut, Chipotle, and Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar. Their pumpkin ketchups have all the same condiment appeal as regular ketchup but with a unique ﬂavor and a great nutritional proﬁle that comes from the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals in pumpkin.
I can't stand tomato based ketchups, so I was intrigued with the whole pumpkin idea. They sent me on over some of the Thai Coconut variety to try out. It is filled with a rich coconut ﬂavor, Asian spices and curry, and obviously, pumpkin! I went back and forth on how to use my sample to try it out - first I thought it would be perfect as a dipping sauce for homemade fries, then as used to spice up some stir-fry veggies, and finally I settled on breading up a boneless chicken breast, and baking it. I placed the chicken on a small bed of steamed white rice, and drizzled the Thai Coconut over it. (My camera is having an attitude problem or there would be a photo... sigh!) It was DIVINE! None of the flavors were overwhelming, but they managed to make me feel like I was eating a dish from a fancy restaurant.
A three pack containing one of each variety retails for $22. If you're interested in trying out the Skillet Pumpkin Sauce in any of the flavors, you can order online via their website. For those here in Washington, you can find them at stores like Whole Foods and small shops like Made in Washington and Metropolitan Market. If you're having trouble finding it, drop them a line at email@example.com to get some help.
I received a sample of the product mentioned above in order to try it out in my own home. All opinions are my own.
