WICHITA — The Bearden family has long been known for its work in stained glass, but Wichita native Don Bearden wouldn't mind being known as the sauce guy, either.
Bearden, who now lives in Kansas City, is bringing his new Five Star Grill and Dinner Sauce to Food For Thought's Spring Fling this weekend at 2929 E. Central. He's also selling it at Yoder Meats.
Bearden first started making the sauce 15 years ago.
"There's really nothing like it out there," he says.

Red and golden delicious apples are the main ingredients. There also are tomatoes, raisins, jalapenos, onion, garlic and vinegar.
Bearden says the sauce, which he’s selling for $6.99, is great as a marinade on anything or as a dipping sauce.
"It's weird how it just came out so versatile," he says. "It's kind of like the new ketchup, if you will."
