I love living in Southern NH! There are so many chances to eat locally all year round and an endless supply of specialty food producers. One of those awesome food producers is Dagne Goodwin of Amelia Maes & Co.
Goodie's Barbecue Sauce is a Kansas City style sauce, smokey, sweet and peppery. Not too hot, not too sweet. My three-year old enjoyed it whereas my picky four year old was not too keen. It definitely has a bit of a bite, but not too much that most kids won't go for it. Here's a cooking tip from their website:
We recommend that you put the sauce on right when the meat is done and then put it back on the grill for a few minutes to cook it into the meat. This is how the masters do it and you won't have a burnt piece of meat on your hands. You have to try it.
I baked my chicken and put the barbecue sauce on after it was cooked, and, well, you have to try it! Also what I love is that no additives, fillers, colorings, or preservatives are used in the making of the barbecue sauce.
Also made by Amelia Maes & Co. are a selection of gourmet hot pepper jellies, savory jams, sweet jams, and dessert toppings.
