Plants are multifaceted creatures, with fruits that express their intentions to be sweet and brussels sprouts that express their plan to continue punishing humans.

Choose from six product categories including barbecue and hot sauces, mustards and chutneys, and salad dressings and seasonings, each of which is fruit-based rather than built upon the infirm and messy foundations of dairy or tomato. Try the Tropical Fruit Chutney, recipient of the Cooking Club of America's Seal of Approval, brought forth from a calypso fusion of pineapple, mango, and a variety of seasonings, or spread the Caribbean Hot Volcano BBQ Sauce, with a smooth consistency and peppery finish perfect for pork, poultry, or pouring over the top of a paper mache volcano.
Nature Isle Tropical Gourmet
Dorian Etienne spent his childhood in the fields of Delices, a small farming village in Dominica, known as the Nature Isle of the Caribbean. As he grew up near the picturesque Victoria Waterfalls and the White River, he soaked up a style of cooking that leans heavily on tropical herbs and spices for flavor. After an interlude in corporate America, Dorian returned to his roots in 2001 by founding Nature Isle Tropical Gourmet, which began with a bouquet of just six fruit-based condiments. He's added fresh sauces, chutneys, dressings, and other products to his inventory since then, but each still contains only vegan ingredients and eschews gluten and tomatoes, just to take them down a peg.
The unique blends include tropical-fruit chutney, a chunky medley of pineapple and mango that kisses fish, pork, and poultry with a fruity flavor and was awarded the Cooking Club of America's seal of approval. The signature mango cocktail sauce smolders with a mild heat hidden behind tropical tang. These and other sauces star in an online recipe book full of authentic Caribbean dishes, and the website further helps customers weigh their options by rating each product's spiciness on a scale from zero to "great for fire-breathing."
