Raspberry Five! Spice Sauce

Yield: 1½ Cup

1/2 Cup Raspberry Jam

1/4 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar

1/4 Cup Water

1 Teaspoon Soy Sauce

1/2 Teaspoon Sesame Oil

2 Teaspoons Five! Spice Seasoning

1 Tablespoon Ginger Sugar

1 Teaspoon Minced Fresh Garlic 

1/2 Teaspoon Hawaiian Alaea Sea Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Pink Peppercorns

This recipe is classic example of Farmhouse Fusion fare – we’ve taken a traditional blend of ingredients, added a few fresh ingredients from the garden, and given it a flavor and character of its own!  We then created ways to use the sauce that will result in delicious, even memorable, dishes for your guests – things like our Raspberry Five Spice Skewered Chicken, Roasted Raspberry Beets, and Raspberry Five Carrot Slaw. We love the fresh tang the recipe gets from the homemade raspberry jam, so if you don’t have any on hand, why not make a quick version using frozen berries. If you skimp on this one ingredient, your sauce will just not be the same.


Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Whisk together until well combined and refrigerate until ready to use. If sauce is too thick, thin with more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. Sauce will last in the refrigerator for 1 week. You can even make some ahead and freeze it for use later.

Five! Seasoning

At once sweet and savory,

spicy and warm, Five! has

distinctive taste all its own.

Use with pork, poultry, and shell fish; vegetables, rice, and remoulades. And venture out even further by using Five! in some of your baked creations.

Ginger Sugar
Rich, sweet, and warm, our
Ginger Sugar can be used
creatively for both sweet and
savory dishes. Sprinkle some on salmon before grilling, use to add a subtle sweetness to sauces and vinaigrettes, or use as a finishing touch on pastries and desserts.

Hawaiian Alaea
Sea Salt
Harvested from Hawaii's
clay-lined salt ponds, this
salt is ideal for Home Chefs who want to distinguish themselves. It locks in the moisture and flavor of grilled and roasted meats; and its robust earthy and sweet flavors make it perfect for brines, rubs, marinades, and more.

Pink Peppercorns
While they have a fresh,
peppery flavor, pink
peppercorns are not pepper.
They are the fruit of a Brazilian tree that is part of the cashew/mango family. Their sweet, mild flavor works well in delicate sauces, as well as in seafood and poultry dishes. Crush with a mortar and pestle.
