Lee Harvey's Wing Sauces

I've recently discovered that I'm apparently skilled at putting together ingredients to make a good wing sauce. For the sake of remembering them, and letting others try them if they want, I'm going to start a thread here.

First three entries:

-----

Honey ginger habanero

One stick salted butter
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp Angry Ginger sauce from Sh' That's Hot

-----

Maple habanero

One stick salted butter
3 oz (6 tbsp) maple syrup
2 oz Trader Joe's habanero hot sauce
1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon powder

-----

Garlic chipotle

One stick salted butter
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp powdered coriander seed

Sprinkle with cotija cheese after saucing wings


Couple of observations - I'll probably start all of these with a stick of salted butter. It's just how I roll when I'm making any sauce. Also, I may like habanero, but balancing it with sugar really knocks down the heat. Neither of the two with habanero sauce in them was incredibly hot.

I finally got PB&J wings to work. I had them in a hotel bar a while ago - they were okay, but it felt like the chef was going more for novelty value than a good dish. They needed spice, and a lot more attention to detail in composition. This isn’t a finished recipe, but I think it’s good enough to share.

Melt 1 stick salted butter over low heat
Add 1/2 cup natural (nuts and salt are the only ingredients) peanut butter. I used smooth, but crunchy could work, if that’s your deal. Stir until combined and smooth.
Add 1/2 cup jelly. I used cherry & pepper jam, but this is where a person could go as conservative or wild as they saw fit. Again, stir until combined and smooth.
Add 1/4 cup (more or less, depending on how much kick you want) Savannah Bee Company hot honey. You guessed it - stir until combined and smooth.
Toss wings in sauce to coat while everything is still hot. The sauce will congeal as it cools, so it will get clumpy if you try putting it on cold wings. It still tastes great, but you don’t get the nice, uniform coverage.
