Huacatay paste is made with an Andean herb similar to mint or basil. It has a bold, unique flavor perfect for use on its own as a sauce or or mixed with meat and seafood dishes.
The herb Huacatay, or Tagetes minuta, grows in the Andean countryside of Peru and Bolivia. Sometimes called black mint, huacatay is in the same family as tarragon and marigold but its pungent aroma is reminiscent of mint or basil.
Huacatay has been a part of the Peruvian and Bolivian cultures since Incan times and it is still one of the first herbs chosen to enhance dishes in these regions.
This flavorful sauce is a great choice for many types of dishes. Use it alone as a spread or mix it with chopped tomato, onion and peppers for a sauce with true Andean flavor. It's also a wonderful aromatic marinade for meats and fish.
Refrigerate after opening.
Black mint, salt and citric acid.
