Black Bean Sauce

Black bean sauce is commonly used in Chinese cooking and is made from fermented, salt preserved black soybeans.  The sauce is sometimes flavored with garlic, ginger, chilies, or other spices. It is used as a cooking sauce that is used towards the end of cooking, rather than a condiment, and pairs well with dishes that incorporate tofu, beef, and green peppers.


Berbere is a spice mix hailing from Ethiopia and Eritrea.  Individuals may have their own variations of this spice blend.  This spice blend is full of flavor and heat.  It’s great as a rub for meat and fish, or as a seasoning for stews, soups, grains, and vegetables.
