Bixi-Bixia
« on: April 04, 2010, 05:51:49 am »
This is a terrific sauce I stumbled across on a US food column web site.  It is made in France but is obviously available in the USA.  It's about 40% aqueous and 60% oil based.  A mix of peppers and spices that you need to shake well before using.  Not hot but has a marvelous flavor  - a bit vinegary with a nice bite.  Probably of Basque origin with a name like that.  I tossed the original closure and replaced with a wine cork.  You'll have to Google for a local source probably.

Here is a New York Times blurb about it:
