A saucy, Burnin’ Love affair
They love Elvis and were married in Las Vegas. But Gregg and JoAnn Marsh really named their sauces Burnin’ Love as a testament to their passion for each other, food, and cooking. Gregg, a professional chef who cooked at Morton’s Steakhouse and Legal Sea Foods, developed the recipes. Last March, the Dorchester residents bottled three sauces and a savory jam at a Dartmouth commissary and launched their Burnin’ Love business. There’s the Heartbreak Sauce, sweet and mild, with a roasted red pepper base; Torch-ered Heartbreak, with dried chili pepper extracts; 1919, a smoky, spicy molasses sauce that takes its name from the Boston molasses flood of that year; and Sweet Onion Blues jam, a blend of Maine blueberries and caramelized onions (each $7 for a 9-ounce jar; 1919 is 12 ounces). All made with a hunk of love.
