The Story Behind Sparky's Wing Sauce

This recipe is on 2 pieces of paper locked away in an OOMPAH Blueberry mold somewhere in Wankaland. We went into business in January of 2011 & I was making it on my kitchen stove. I literally gave samples to customers in 8 oz jelly jars with no label. We had a couple places that really wanted to get the product. From January 1 to March 17 of 2011 I formed a corporation, designed a label, hired a label maker, signed a nondisclosure contract with a bottling company, had a nutrition company analyze my product, did some more legal work, and had 7 companies.

  1. Prepare the sauce: Heat the Simply Sunflower Oil in a saucepan, on medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until tender, stirring often. Add in rice vinegar, Sparky's FIRE Wing and Dippin' Sauce, and Buzz Savories' Honey, bring to a low boil. Simmer for a few minutes and then remove from heat. Cool slightly. Blend with a stick blender until smooth. 
  2. Prepare your wings: Wash the wings and dredge them in flour. Shake off the excess flour and deep fry them in 350F Simply Sunflower Oil for about 8-10 minutes. I did not use my deep fryer --- I pan fried them in about 2" of oil for 4-5 minutes per side. 
  3. Place wings on paper towels to remove any excess oil, then toss them with the honey Sparky's sauce. 
  4. Serve with dressing or celery if desired.
