A note from Bill Penzey
Happy times here. Many irons in the fire. First off I
want to say just how much I enjoyed the contest. It
was like being the popular kid on Valentine’s day and
then repeating Valentine’s everyday for eight months.
I did not think about that part of it when I thought
up the contest, but it sure felt good. Don’t worry, I
have a really short memory when it comes to positive
feedback so I should be all right shortly. The other
surprising thing was that so many cards came through
“we need a Penzeys.” So many of the notes you added
were about what it would mean for your town. It was
not the desire to have a Penzeys for yourselves that
drove you to write, it was the desire to have a Penzeys
for the people around you. It has taken me a while
but it is something to do with the combination of the
birth of my daughter and the running of this contest
that it has finally dawned on me why people make
the effort to cook. It is not to be like celebrity chefs, to
impress the neighbors or because it is the final piece
to complete our super luxury lifestyles. People make
the effort to cook because they care about the people
they are cooking for. The contest has helped me to
understand this and put it into words. Thanks for
participating, thanks for helping to open my eyes.
We continue to be in what seems to be a really
creative time with our spices and seasonings. This
catalog we have added a few new items in our taco
line up. For ages we have had a very popular basic
Taco Seasoning. With its many fans we did not want
to change the formula, but over the years America’s
knowledge and appreciation for the foods of Mexico
have expanded greatly. Our two new blends reflect
this. We now have the Bold Taco seasoning with a
little bit of heat and a lot more flavor. We also have
the Chicken Taco Seasoning that is a traditional style
flavor combination that brings the most out from
poultry. We also added a couple of traditional chili
peppers for Mexican cooking to our chili pepper line
up: guajillos and cascabels. You may still need to run to
the Mexican grocery store for good cheese, tomatillos,
and fresh peppers, but now you won’t need to go there
for the dried ones.
The other big thing for us is that we are launching a
magazine. The plan was to write a book, but as my
wife Jeri has pointed out to me “you always have to
take everything one step further.” I’m pretty sure she
meant that as a compliment. Spices and seasonings
are our life and will always be what we do for a
living, but there also is something more going on
here with our customers and us. There is something
about cooking and sharing food with the people that
you care about that really matters. The plan is for the
magazine to capture this feeling and use that energy
to encourage people to cook and share and maybe
do our little part to heal some of the rifts that have
developed around us. Of course we know enough
to camouflage the attempt to do good with beautiful
photos, clever and humorous writings and really good
recipes. You can be wise and wait to see what the
first issue looks like before subscribing. Or (and this
is what I recommend) you can send us your money
now and be an “official” charter subscriber. This way
down the road when someone comes to you with
this incredible magazine they just discovered you
can lean back and say with a smile “O yes, I’ve been
with them from Day One.” Kidding aside I really think
this is going to be good. First issue will be out in the
middle of November. Just in the nick of time. Please
don’t forget to visit the stores,

Arrowroot Starch
Arrowroot has long been used in making clear
glazes for fruit pies. Because of its superior
thickening ability (use half as much as flour)
and clear look, arrowroot is excellent for stir-fry
sauce. From St. Vincent.
To thicken sauces or gravies: Use 1-2 tsp.
(dissolved in a bit of cool water) per Cup. Push
food to one side of pan. Tip pan for juices to
collect on one side and drizzle in arrowrootwater slurry. Stir over medium heat until slightly
thickened, toss to coat food and serve.

Bavarian Style Seasoning
Growing up in the Penzey family, one of our
favorite Sunday dinners was Gram's special
recipe of veal, pork, potatoes, onions and
carrots, all roasted to a golden brown in the
same pan, seasoned with her simple, yet
delicious blend of herbs and spices. We’ve
also found this seasoning is wonderful for
the grill–one of our quick favorites is to rub
boneless pork chops or turkey cutlets with a
bit of vegetable oil, then sprinkle with 1-2 tsp.
Bavarian Seasoning per pound. Also great on
turkey breast, rub on 1-2 tsp. per lb. For added
zest, sprinkle with lemon juice or salt. Handmixed from: crushed brown mustard, rosemary,
garlic, thyme, bay leaf and sage.

and hamburgers. One of our best blends for
venison. Hand-mixed from: sweet paprika,
salt, onion, celery, arrowroot, sugar, garlic,
tellicherry black pepper, parsley, dill seed,
caraway, tumeric, dill weed, bay leaf, thyme,
savory, basil, marjoram and rosemary.

Bicentennial Rub Seasoning
The rich flavor and golden color make this our
favorite blend for turkey, duck, goose, and pork
roast. Perfect for the grill, sprinkle heavily on
rotisserie style chicken or pork roast, also on
thick-cut pork chops and beef short ribs. The
larger chunks of spices in our Bicentennial Rub
also make it perfect for any large cut that takes
an hour or longer to cook, and the beautiful
golden color can’t be beat. Try on roast leg of
lamb, baked or roasted whole stuffed chicken,
Yankee pot roast, and thick-cut pork or veal
chops. Hand-mixed from: coarse flake salt,
Tellicherry black pepper, sugar, turmeric,
minced orange peel and coriander.

Black and Red Spice
A blend of fresh ground Tellicherry black
pepper and hot cayenne red pepper. Great
whenever you want the robust flavor of

Caraway Seed
The early Greeks knew caraway could calm an
upset stomach and used it to season foods that
were hard to digest. Today unsuspecting cooks
who simply love the flavor of caraway continue
the tradition, adding caraway to rye bread,
cabbage dishes (sauerkraut and coleslaw), pork,
cheese sauces, cream soups, goose and duck.
The Germans make a caraway liqueur called
Kummel and serve it after heavy meals.

CARDAMOM
An extremely flavorful and ancient spice native
to India, cardamom's use has spread throughout
the world, with nearly every culture having its
own distinctive use for the flavorful seeds. In
India, where both green and black cardamom
are used, it is an important ingredient in meat
and vegetable dishes. In parts of the Middle East
the seeds are mixed with green coffee beans
before brewing. In Northern Europe (especially
Scandinavia) white cardamom is used to season
baked goods such as Christmas stollen, cakes,
cookies, muffins and buns. Green cardamom
is preferred in India and the Middle East.
Cardamom is a pod consisting of an outer shell
with little flavor and tiny inner seeds with intense
flavor. Fancy white and green pods have no
splits or cracks in the shell, so the flavor keeps
well. Stored in a glass jar, cardamom pods will
stay fresh indefinitely. Shelled or decorticated
cardamom seeds are inexpensive and flavorful,
but sometimes need to be crushed or ground
before use. Ground cardamom has an intensely
strong flavor and is easy to use (especially in
baking, where the fine powder is desirable). Black
Celery Seed
Black pepper is the best spice for beef, but
good cooks also add a touch of celery. Whole
celery seed is used in salad dressings, soups and
pickling recipes, and rubbed on large cuts of
meat. Ground celery is used more sparingly to
season smaller, quicker cooking cuts. Use half as
much ground celery as whole celery.

spices such as cumin & Mexican oregano. Our
chili powders are salt-free. For chili, start with
1 TB. (some people will use as much as 3 TB.)

Chili peppers are capsicums, in the same family
as bell peppers and paprika pods. They range
in flavor from rich and sweet, to fiery hot. A
combination of both sweet (ancho) and hot
(dundicut, chipotle, and jalapeño) chili peppers
are used in Mexican cooking for full-flavored,
spicy chili, and other dishes. For Chinese cooking,
tien tsin peppers are most common, and in
Indian cooking sanaam and dundicut peppers are
used, along with a variety of spices. Remember
to combine the heat of chili peppers with other
spices, so the finished dish will have a full-bodied
flavor. Since chili peppers are dried vegetables,
they will keep best if stored in the refrigerator,
especially during the summer.

Medium Hot Crushed Peppers are hot, but not
unbearably so, and are the type found on the
tables of Italian restaurants and pizzerias. Great
for pizza, tacos, spaghetti, omelets, and beans.

generally used in cooking, as they are almost
too hot to sprinkle on already prepared foods.
Crushed Red Peppers are very convenient for
adding kick to any dish.

ground ginger

Ginger is one of the most widely used spices in the world. In America,
ginger has been used mainly in baking; it is a must for the holidays–from
gingerbread to pumpkin pie to fruit cakes, and it is also increasingly used
to flavor a variety of other dishes. Ginger is essential for Asian and Indian
dishes where it is used in many ways–from Indian curries, to Japanese
marinades, to Chinese stir-fry. A pinch of ginger is a nice boost to the
flavor of salt-free dishes, and also a flavorful addition to chicken soup,
sauteed vegetables, and roast chicken or pork. For flavorful grilled steak,
rub ginger, garlic and black or white pepper on meat, marinate a few hours
before cooking.

GINGER
China #1 whole peeled ginger is the finest in the
world. It is virtually fiber-free, yielding a butterysoft powder when ground, and is much better
than the woody fresh ginger found in many
supermarkets (stays fresh longer, too). Chinese
ginger has a strong, true flavor with lemony
overtones, making it perfect for all baking
recipes–especially gingersnaps, gingerbread,
molasses cookies, coffee cakes, fruit breads,
pies, and muffins.

They don’t call it candied ginger for nothing–
many of our customers buy it just to eat it piece
by piece, because it is just that good. Tender
Australian ginger, peeled and cut into 1/4" dices,
then preserved using the old-fashioned sugar
cure method, which gives a spicy sweet flavor to
the ginger. Virtually fiber-free, crystallized ginger
is perfect for baking and candy-making. Because
the ginger retains its warmth and bite, even with
the sugar coating, it is excellent for teriyaki, tuna
or chicken salad, plus sweet and sour marinades.

be thrown into soup, stock, or fruit sauce.

COCOA
Cocoa is one of the most important
baking spices, plus, making homemade
hot chocolate is one of the best parts of
winter in Wisconsin. We carry two types
of the highest quality cocoa that are
almost twice as rich as the grocery store
varieties: Natural Cocoa is strong, dark and
bittersweet–perfect for all baking; Dutch
Cocoa is processed to temper the natural
acidity of the cocoa bean, yielding a slightly
less strong, but smooth and rich cocoa.
American cooks tend to prefer the Natural
Cocoa for all uses, and we agree. Cocoa
can easily replace unsweetened baking
chocolate. Use 3 TB. cocoa powder to
replace a one ounce square of unsweetened
baking chocolate.
Hot Chocolate Mix
Rich, smooth flavor. Just mix 1 rounded
tablespoon Penzeys Hot Chocolate Mix into each
cup of milk. Stir well, simmer gently. And try our
Hot Chocolate Mix in your coffee for a rich Cafe
Mocha. Just mix 2/3 cup coffee with 1/3 cup milk
and Penzeys Hot Chocolate Mix to taste- we use
1 generous teaspoon. Hand mixed from: Sugar,
Natural Cocoa, Ceylon Cinnamon, Real Vanilla
Beans.

Cream of Tartar
Bay Leaves
Turkish bay leaves are the best in the world.
Though not as strong as the California variety, they
have a natural depth of flavor that the California
bay leaves can't hope to match. Bay leaves grow
wild on the hilly mountains of western Turkey in
the area around Izmir (Smyrna). The wind there
is perfect for growing bay leaves. Most of the year
it comes out of the west across the Mediterranean
and Aegean seas, picking up moisture and
dropping it on the growing trees. At the end of the
summer the wind changes direction and comes
out of the south. Before it reaches the hills around
Izmir it must pass over a couple of mountain
ridges, making it hot and dry, perfect for quickly
drying the leaves with a minimum of flavor loss.
These winds at times create a high risk of forest
fires, which in years past have led to a very small
bay leaf harvest, but this year we seem to have a
nice supply for the coming season. The flavor of
bay leaves is perfect for adding to roast pork or
chicken, pot roast, turkey or ham, use 2-3 leaves
and remove before serving. Bay leaves are also
perfect for spaghetti sauce and chicken soup,
use 2 per quart. A surprising fact is that bay leaves
improve the flavor of salt-free dishes with their rich
flavor. Note: bay leaves are very light (8 ounces by
weight equals one gallon by volume).
English Prime Rib Rub
This versatile seasoning makes delicious prime
rib or beef roast. Rub on 1-2 tsp. per lb. Great on
all cuts of beef, for hamburgers or meatloaf, mix
in 1 tsp. per pound. To make your own Bloody
Marys, use 1/4 tsp. per drink in place of celery salt.
An absolute must for tomato juice. Hand-mixed
from: salt, celery seed, sugar, black pepper,
onion, garlic, arrowroot.

Epazote is traditional for Mexican cooking,
adding a sweet, mild flavor to each dish.
Historically, it has been used to reduce the
intestinal gas that occurs with a diet rich in
beans. Add 1 TB. to a 2 quart pot of chili or bean
soup, or simmer with beans before adding to

Cloves
Whole cloves are a must for studding hams and
flavoring stocks and hot cider and punch. The
flavor is intense, so be sure to use sparingly.
Ground cloves are perfect for baked goods.
Because cloves bring out the flavor of beef,
add a whole clove to beef stew or a tiny pinch
of ground cloves to gravy. In the West, cloves
are mainly considered a baking spice, though
their preserving qualities make them popular for
pickling and barbecuing.

Cilantro
Cilantro is one of the main, distinctive flavors in
Mexican cooking, especially in salsa, soups, and
salads. Cilantro is sometimes called Chinese
parsley, as it is also used heavily in Asian
cooking. Dried Cilantro is not quite as nice as
the fresh, but it is easier to keep on hand and

stews. Dehydrated, broken leaf. From California.

Throughout the world, cumin is second in
popularity only to black pepper. Americans use
it mostly for chili, but cumin is a must in Indian,
Mexican, & Asian cooking. Salsa and tacos are

Basil
Basil is the perfect herb for pasta, tomato sauce,
and chicken. The flavor of sweet basil is almost
addictive and there is little that a bit of basil can’t
improve. Known as a tomato’s best friend, add
basil to salads, soups, fish, and vegetables. Basil
is a wonderful addition to meat and poultry as
well. Add basil toward the end of cooking for
the strongest flavor. California basil is a little
stronger than French basil, due mainly to better
dehydration technology, and is the basil of
choice for Italian and American cooking. French
basil has a bit of anise flavor many people enjoy.

Greek Seasoned Fish
Dilly Red Potatoes
A snap to make; tasty and healthy too.
A nice side dish with fish, chicken and chops or by
themselves served with a salad.

1 2
cod filets, 6-8 oz. each (feel free to use
whichever fish filet you prefer)
tsp. GREEK SEASONING
tsp. DILL WEED
tsp. butter
Cup shredded cheese–we had leftover
Greek kefalotiri cheese, which was
awesome, but shredded Parmesan or
Romano would be fine too)
lemon, cut in wedges
Preheat oven to 375°. Rinse fish, pat dry. We
usually start with frozen cod which is packed in
roughly one pound rectangles–it is easiest to cut in
two while semi-frozen. Place in a baking dish (we
prefer glass), sprinkle with GREEK SEASONING
and DILL WEED on both sides. Top each piece
with a teaspoon-sized pat of butter.
Bake roughly 20 minutes, depending on the
thickness of the fish. For the final 5 minutes,
sprinkle each filet with half the shredded cheese.
Turn the oven to low broil so the cheese browns a
bit. Serve with dilly red potatoes and the vegetable
of your choice.

1 2
lb. small red potatoes
tsp. salt
tsp. DILL WEED
Wash the potatoes. Peel half, leave the half that
looks nicest unpeeled. Slice a bit off both ends
and discard, then slice each potato into 3-4 pieces.
Bring 4 cups water to a boil, add potatoes and
salt. Cook 8-10 minutes until fork tender. Drain
and cover in the pan for a minute to dry. Toss the
potatoes with the drippings from whatever you
are cooking - especially if it has cheese, as in the
Greek Seasoned fish - baked chicken or pan fried
pork chop drippings are great too. If you have no
drippings, use 2 tsp. melted butter or 2 tsp. olive
oil. Sprinkle with DILL WEED. If you had no spiced
drippings, add salt and PEPPER to taste. Serve.
Serves: 2-3. Prep. time: 5 minutes. Cooking time:
10 minutes.
Coriander
The seed of the same plant that gives us cilantro,
coriander has a light, lemony flavor that
combines especially well with ginger. Use to
season foods that cook for longer than an hour,
such as roasts, or items that are cooked for a
shorter time but at a higher temperature, such as
pan-fried, broiled or grilled meats.

Fox Point Seasoning
One of our very best blends, so good on all the
foods we are supposed to be eating more of,
from fish to vegetables. Bursting with the rich
flavor of shallots and chives. Use 1 tsp. per
pound to season baked chicken, and scrambled
eggs. For tasty dip use 2 tsp. of Fox Point in 1
Cup sour cream or yogurt. The dip makes an
outstanding topping for baked potatoes too, or
make a quick chicken or tuna salad by mixing
3 Cups of cooked chicken or tuna chunks with
1 cup of Fox Point dip. Hand-mixed from: salt,
freeze-dried shallots, chives, garlic, onion,
green peppercorns. Because we do not use any
anti-caking agents in this (or any other) blend,
it tends to clump somewhat. To keep it freeflowing, store in the refrigerator.

beef and red wine stews. Brush lowfat cuts

salt or a drizzle of red wine vinegar. Grill or sear

CURRY POWDERS
Cooking With Curry
Many people who eat curry for the first time in an
Indian restaurant are a bit overwhelmed by trying a
dish that is new to them but spiced for a person who
already knows and loves the flavor of Indian food.
Balti
The key to learning to love Indian food yourself is
to start at home by adding small amounts of curry
powder to foods you already know and like. Sprinkle
on chicken or chops before cooking, scramble a bit
with eggs, sauté with vegetables. Soon the whole
family will love the flavors, and you can move on
to authentic, but not too spicy, dishes like Balti,
Tandoori, Saté and Rogan Josh. Finding new, quick
ways to prepare the same food for the family dinner
isn’t always easy, and Indian cooking is some of the
most delicious in the world. Give it a try...
Balti Seasoning
Baltistan is an ancient region of northernmost
Pakistan with influences from Persia, Tibet and
China. Balti meals are rich stews cooked in a
karahi (small wok), and would be eaten with
naan and other Indian breads. The deliciously
spicy but not too hot flavor of Balti makes it a
great choice for chicken, pork or beef. Handmixed from: coriander, garlic, ginger, cumin,
dundicut chilies, Ceylon cinnamon, brown
mustard seeds, cardamom, clove, fennel,
fenugreek, charnushka, ajwain, star anise, black
cardamom, cilantro, anise seed and bay leaf.

Garam Masala
Garam Masala
Garam Masala, a blend of savory Indian spices,
is one of the few spice mixes actually used in
India. It has no turmeric, so it isn’t yellow, and is
often used added to hot or mild curry powder.
The formula for Garam Masala was brought into
the store by a Punjabi man who had moved to
the U.S. It was his mother's recipe; in exchange
for blending the spices for him, he gave it to us.
His mother was proud to hear that her blend was
a hit in America. Hand-mixed from: coriander,
black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, kalonji,
caraway, cloves, ginger, nutmeg.

Hot Curry
Same great flavor as Sweet Curry Powder, with
more hot red pepper and ginger. Commonly
used by Chinese restaurants, also known as
“Madras Curry Powder” . For grilled steaks,
pork chops or chicken wings, rub on 1/2 - 1 tsp.
per pound, along with salt as desired. For spicy
chicken noodle or eggdrop soup, add 1 tsp. per
2 quart pot. Hand-mixed from: turmeric, red
pepper, coriander, ginger, cumin, fenugreek,
white pepper, cinnamon, fennel, nutmeg,

Not All Curries Are Hot!
Contrary to popular belief Indian food isn’t all hot.
The wonders of spicing are nowhere more apparent
than in India, where stronger-flavored meats, such
as lamb, are turned into the most delicious dishes
imaginable through spicing and slow cooking.
Tandoori, Maharajah and Sweet Curry are rich and
flavorful without being hot. Hot Curry and Vindaloo
are hot and spicy. Garam Masala, Rogan Josh, Saté
and Balti are somewhere in between. Just starting
out? Try Sweet Curry, Rogan Josh, Tandoori, Balti
and Sate Seasoning.
Sweet Curry Powder
The perfect first curry powder. Great flavor, little
heat, nice for simple chicken curry. For baked
chicken or fish, use 1/2 tsp. per lb. for rich (not
too spicy) flavor. Add 1 tsp. to a pot of chicken
soup for flavor and color. For a curried pasta or
green salad dressing, saute 1-2 tsp. in 2 TB. olive
oil for 3 minutes over low heat, blend into 1 Cup
yogurt or 1/2 Cup vinegar and oil. Hand-mixed
from: turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek,
ginger, nutmeg, fennel, cinnamon, white &
black pepper, cardamom, cloves, cayenne .

Tandoori Seasoning
Clay ovens known as tandoors and the flavorful
food they produce have become popular the
world over. The most popular tandoori food is
chicken. Skinless half chickens are marinated
overnight, skewered and baked in the tandoor.
You might not have a clay oven in the kitchen,
but Tandoori Seasoning tastes great anyway. Use
to coat cubed chicken breast on skewers for
the grill or oven, perfect for sauteed boneless/
skinless chicken breast or fish fillets, also
excellent for plain baked chicken. Hand-mixed
from: coriander, cumin, sweet paprika, garlic,
ginger, cardamom and saffron.

Vindaloo Seasoning
This hot and spicy blend comes from Goa, a
small state nestled in the middle of the Malabar
Coast of India. Though control of Goa was
returned to India in 1961, the four and a half
centuries of Portuguese rule left many lasting
impressions. Pork Vindaloo is a favorite dish
of the Catholics, who make up a third of the
population of Goa. The Muslims and Hindus of
India prefer Vindaloo lamb or duck. Mix 2-5 TB.
spice in 2-5 TB. water, set aside. Heat 2 TB oil,
brown 11/2 lb. pork cubes, remove, then brown
1 large minced onion. Put browned pork back
into pot, add Vindaloo paste, 1 Cup water, 6
TB. vinegar and 1 tsp. salt, cook 30 min. Add
4-6 cups cubed potatoes, cook till tender (45
min. or so). For authentic fiery hot Vindaloo as
served in beach front restaurants in India, add an
equal part cayenne pepper. Hand-mixed from:
coriander, garlic, cumin, ginger, cinnamon,
crushed brown mustard, cayenne, jalapeño
pepper, cardamom, turmeric, black pepper
cloves.

The highest quality curry powder, perfect for
special meals. Maharajah is sweet and rich, not
hot, with fragrant cardamom and a full pound of
Kashmir saffron, in every 50 lbs. of curry powder
(2004 price $10.95 for 1/28th. ounce). Add glorious
color and flavor to chicken and seafood curry.
For rice, saute 1/2 tsp. in 1 TB. butter for 2 min.,
add 1 Cup rice, 2 Cups water and dash of salt.
Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat, simmer for 18
minutes. Hand-mixed from: turmeric, coriander,
cumin, cardamom, fenugreek, ginger, nutmeg,
fennel, cinnamon, white pepper, black pepper,

Rogan Josh Seasoning
Tandoori
Just a little spicy. This version of the popular red
lamb stew comes from the state of Rajasthan,
known for its hilly deserts and fierce, yet
chivalrous warriors. While Rogan Josh can be
made with beef, it is traditional and better made
with lamb. This blend is a great example of
how a crafty seasoning can change the stronger
flavor of lamb, (or in India, mutton or goat),
into a meal far more delicious than plain old
beef. Some blends are interesting–this blend is
delicious. For the true Jaipur Palace experience,
use the full 2 TB. seasoning per pound, plus
extra cayenne and cardamom. Either way you
make it, don't plan on leftovers. Brown 2 lb.
lamb or beef cubes in 4 TB. oil. Remove, brown
1 large minced onion, add 2-4 TB. Rogan Josh, 1
tsp. salt, stir. Add meat plus 1 Cup water and 1/2
Cup yogurt. Cook 1-2 hrs. over low heat til lamb
is tender and sauce thick. Hand-mixed from:
paprika, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, pepper,
cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, saffron.

Saté Seasoning
Vindaloo
Of all the regional dishes of Indonesia, saté is
probably the best known and most enjoyed the
world over. What could be better than meat on
a stick? Lamb is the meat of choice for skewers
in Indonesia, but chicken and beef are equally
popular here in the US. Saté makes a great
appetizer or a wonderful meal with plain rice or

Galena Street Rib and Chicken Rub
A mouth-watering traditional Southern-style
seasoning with hints of sage, nutmeg, and
cayenne red pepper. For pork ribs, rub on
seasoning, 1-2 tsp. per pound. Add a little more
halfway through cooking. For chicken use on a
bit less. For tasty barbecue sauce, mix 1 TB. in 1
Cup tomato sauce or even ketchup. Really good
for grilled or broiled turkey wings–cut wings
into sections (we call them riblets) and sprinkle
the Galena Street on heavily before cooking.
Hand-mixed from: flake salt, sugar, black pepper,
paprika, nutmeg, sage, and cayenne red pepper.

Garlic
It is very easy to use granulated garlic, just
sprinkle on meat, fish, poultry, or vegetables Use
about 1/2 tsp. per lb. To rehydrate: use 1/2 tsp.
granulated garlic in 1 tsp. water to equal 2 fresh
cloves of garlic. For minced garlic, use 1/4 tsp.
in 1 tsp. water to equal 1 fresh clove of garlic.
Rehydrate garlic before adding to tart foods like
tomatoes, (their acidic nature will stop the garlic
from developing to its full strength).

Lemon grass is used in SE Asia, India and China.
The lemony flavor combines well with the
ginger-garlic mix that is the backbone of most
Asian cuisines.
Lemon Peel
Extra fancy California zest (outer peel) with
strong lemon flavor and bright yellow color.
Minced lemon peel is preferred for baked goods
such as lemon poppy seed muffins and cookies
such as lemon bars, while powdered is nice for
cheesecake. To rehydrate: Use 3 parts water to
1 part lemon peel, and let stand for 15 minutes.
When substituting dried lemon peel for fresh,
use 1/3 as much as a recipe calls for.

Raspberry Enlightenment
We call it...Raspberry Enlightenment.
Our Creative Cook has been working for a
while now to come up with something to use in
rotation with balsamic vinegar to add tartness,
sweetness and that dash of flavor that so many
of today’s quick cooked meals want. Raspberry
Enlightenment helps. Don’t think of it as a way
to make things taste like raspberry, think of it as
a background flavor that makes everything taste
better, especially vegetables, pasta, salads and
quickly cooked meats. Give it a try. It is designed
to help you explore your own creativity.
Ingredients: raspberries, sugar, water, tapioca
starch, spices, citric acid.

Caribbean Pork Loin and Mushrooms

Delicious and succulently tender, Jerk Pork Seasoning combines fabulously with the flavor of Raspberry
Enlightenment, making this a meal not to be missed.

1-2
pork tenderloin (roughly a pound)
tsp. JERK PORK SEASONING
TB. vegetable oil (we used olive)
12. oz. package mushrooms
(we used baby bellas)
TB. RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT, divided
Cups fresh green beans or sweet peas
tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 325°. Wash the pork, pat dry. Cut it in
two pieces if it won’t fit in the pan otherwise. Rub all
sides with JERK PORK SEASONING. In a large skillet
or fry pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Sear the
pork on all sides until it is nice and red-brown, which
is about 2 minutes per side. Don’t have the heat so
high the bits in the pan start to blacken, as you’ll be
using the same pan to cook the mushrooms. Once the
pork is browned, place in a baking dish. Brush with 1
TB. RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT and place in the
preheated oven. The pork will need roughly 1/2 hour

or www.penzeys.com
to finish cooking, but if the piece is thick it might
need longer. If in doubt, use a meat thermometer–
inserted in the middle, 145° will be juicily done with
just a hint of pink. While the pork is roasting, cook the
beans and mushrooms. Wash mushrooms, pat dry (or
just rub off the stuff, which ever you prefer). Quarter
the mushrooms. Toss into the pan the pork cooked in
once the pork has been removed. Use your judgement
as to adding more oil. If there is at least a teaspoon
in the pan, you don’t need any more, if not, add a bit.
Cook the mushrooms over medium heat, tossing every
minute or so, until golden brown. Reduce the
heat to very low, coat with 2 tsp. RASPBERRY
ENLIGHTENMENT - just a guideline - use more if you
love the flavor. Let the mushrooms simmer gently until service time. For the beans, heat 4 cups water to a
rapid boil. Wash the beans and cut off the ends if they
look dry. Boil 3 minutes, rinse briefly just to stop cooking. Toss with 1 tsp. RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT,
serve or keep warm until ready to serve. Remove pork
from the oven when done, let rest 5 minutes before
cutting. Serve slices fanned out over a mess of
mushrooms, with a nice stack of green beans.
Serves: 3 - 2 with leftovers, 4 for lunch.
Prep. time: 2 minutes. Cooking time: about
40 minutes.
Salad Pages
Roasted Eggplant & Pepper Salad
With Country French Dressing.
A hearty harvest dish, a meal in itself.
A wonderful fresh vegetable salad
that can be eaten as is, or spread onto
chewy bread rounds. The recipe calls
for roasting the vegetables; they can
also be grilled, just wrap in foil and
grill over medium heat for an hour,
turning every 15 minutes.
4 bell peppers–about 11/2 lbs
(1 each green, red, yellow
and orange makes a nice
color combination)
1 large eggplant
(or 2 small)–about 2 lbs
2 large red-ripe tomatoes
1/2
Cup mozzarella cheese, freshly grated
1/4
Cup plus 2 TB. olive oil
1-2 TB. COUNTRY FRENCH VINAIGRETTE
DRESSING BASE
1 TB. water
3 TB. balsamic or red wine vinegar
freshly ground BLACK PEPPER to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Wash peppers and eggplant.
Core the peppers, remove seeds and membrane,
chop into one inch pieces. Peel eggplant, cut off and
discard a one inch slice from the top and bottom,
then slice eggplant into one inch rounds and chop
Buttermilk Ranch
America's homegrown dressing; ranch style
salad dressing is lower in fat than most, as it
uses buttermilk for flavor and body. Ranch style
dressing is also excellent for fresh vegetable dip,
or sprinkled on baked chicken or fish, 1-2 tsp. per
lb. To make 1 Cup dressing, mix 1 TB. seasoning in
1 TB. water, let stand five minutes, then whisk with
1
/2 Cup buttermilk and 1/2 Cup mayonnaise. Also
excellent as a fresh vegetable dip. For a lower
calorie version use low-fat mayonnaise, or up the
proportion of buttermilk, which will make the
dressing thinner, but equally tasty. Ranch dressing
should be refrigerated, check the freshness
date on the buttermilk carton, and write it on
the dressing bottle. Hand-mixed from: salt, bell
peppers, garlic, onion, sugar, black pepper, parsley,
thyme and basil.

each slice into one inch squares. It is important to
cut the eggplant into chunks–thin slices will get
mushy during roasting. Place pepper and eggplant
pieces on baking sheet, drizzle with 2 TB. olive oil
and toss to coat. Place on the center rack in the oven,
turning every fifteen minutes or so for even roasting.
It’s okay if the pieces stick a bit, as this means they
are browning, which adds good flavor to the finished
vegetables. Cook for 1 to 11/2 hours, until everything
is soft, fragrant, and evenly cooked. Remove from
the oven and cool for a few minutes on the baking
sheet. While the mixture is cooling, in a large bowl,
rehydrate COUNTRY FRENCH DRESSING BASE in 1
TB water for 5 minutes, then whisk with 1/4 cup olive
oil and 3 TB. balsamic or red wine vinegar. Add the
eggplant-pepper mix, stir to coat. Wash tomatoes and
remove the top 1/2” plus any white core you can see.
Chop into bite-sized pieces. Shred the cheese on a
cheese grater, which is very quick and easy, plus tastier
and less expensive than buying pre-grated cheese.
Add tomatoes and shredded cheese to the serving
bowl. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with freshly ground
BLACK PEPPER as desired. Serve warm surrounded
by French bread rounds brushed with olive oil and
lightly toasted.
Yields: about 8 Cups salad
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 1-11/2 hours
Country French Vinaigrette
Similar to the house dressing of many fine
restaurants, filled with flavorful French herbs,
not too tart, lightly thickened by crushed brown
mustard. A variation of classic French Vinegar and
Oil dressing, but lighter, perfect for today's salads.
Bursting with flavor, blend with a mix of olive oil
and red wine vinegar (the proportions can be
varied to suit your tastes). Basic recipe for 1 cup
dressing: Mix 1-2 TB. seasoning in 2 TB. water,
let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/3 Cup red wine
vinegar and 1/2 Cup olive oil, refrigerate. Handmixed from: sugar, brown mustard, salt, garlic,
black pepper, lemon, onion, French tarragon,
white pepper, chives, thyme and cracked
rosemary.

Green Goddess
Salt-free. An old-fashioned, classical style salad
dressing, somewhat like a mild, sweet, herb-filled
creamy Italian, heavy on the basil and dill. This
base is not only nice for green salads, it is great
for fresh vegetable dip or as a light, refreshing
alternative to tartar sauce on baked or fried
fish. This base is very good without salt, but salt
can be added to taste (try 1/2 tsp. per cup), or
a squeeze of lemon juice could be added in
place of salt. To make one cup of dressing, mix
1 rounded TB. GREEN GODDESS in 2 TB. water,
let stand 5 minutes. Whisk with 2/3-3/4 Cup regular
or low-fat mayonnaise and 1 TB. vinegar. This
dressing will be thick (nice for dip), thin with
1-2 TB. water if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
Hand-mixed from: green onion, sugar, basil, celery
flakes, minced garlic and dill weed.
Greek Seasoning
A traditional blend of lemon, garlic and oregano.
To make GREEK SALAD DRESSING: Mix 2 TB.
seasoning with 2 TB. water, let stand 5 min. Add
1
/4 Cup olive oil, 1/4 Cup salad oil, 1/3 Cup red wine
vinegar (or 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 TB.
water), plus 1 tsp. sugar if desired. Use to dress
vegetable salads, tomatoes and red onion with
feta cheese and olives, chicken and pasta salads,
or a plain lettuce salad. For gyros, mix 1 TB. in
1 TB. water. Let stand 5 min., add 1 TB. olive oil
and 1 TB. lemon juice. Combine with 1 lb. cubed
lamb (traditional), pork or chicken, refrigerate 2
hours. Broil until browned. Mix 2-3 tsp. with 1 Cup
yogurt and 2 TB. cucumber for gyro sauce. Great
on grilled, baked or fried fish or chicken, rub on 1
tsp. per lb. Hand-mixed from: coarse salt, Turkish
oregano, garlic, lemon, black pepper, marjoram.

shaken onto foods before cooking. The ‘B’ jar holds the
same amount but has a wide mouth–easy to get
your fingers or a measuring spoon into. The ‘C’, ‘D’,

Europe, but it hasn’t yet gained the popularity
of basil and oregano here in America. Its flavor
is a sweet, flowery cross between oregano and
basil, making it the perfect addition to soup,
stews, tomato sauces, and dishes such as baked
chicken. It’s also nice for creamy potato dishes
like scalloped potatoes and potato soup.

MUSTARD
One of the oldest known culinary and medicinal
spices, the Romans and Greeks were believed to
have used table mustard as we do today.
The oldest known recipe was written in the
1st century AD.
When making mustard, use stainless steel, glass
or ceramic utensils and containers (aluminum
gives mustard an odd flavor). For a standard
thickness, use 8 parts mustard by volume to 7
parts liquid. Mustard is very hot when first mixed,
and then mellows with age. Refrigeration nearly
stops the mellowing process. For a nippy, but not
overpowering mustard, store at room temperature
for 6 weeks, then move to refrigerator. Try 4 weeks
for hot mustard and 8 weeks for mild. An easy
starter recipe is 1 Cup regular mustard powder (4
oz. by weight), 3 fl. oz. vinegar, 3 fl. oz. cool water,
1
/2 tsp. salt and 1 TB. honey. Mix until smooth,
then pack in glass jars. Feel free to experiment.
For Chinese restaurant-style mustard, mix 8 parts
Oriental powder with 7 parts water. Let stand 10
minutes for heat and flavor to develop.
Mustard Seed
Yellow mustard seed is the traditional type sold
in grocery stores, commonly used for pickling,
canning and sausage making. Brown mustard
seed is smaller and hotter, traditional for Asian
and African cooking. In India, whole brown
seeds are fried in oil until a popping sound
is heard. This gives the seeds a nutty flavor,
important in many vegetarian dishes. Try whole
mustard seeds in barbecue sauce and rubs,
or marinades for grilling. The seeds become
very soft, giving great flavor and an attractive
appearance.

Black Peppercorns
If there is only one spice in your kitchen, it
should be pepper. No other spice adds the
greatest amount of flavor to the greatest number
of dishes. From a historical perspective, no other
spice has had the impact of black pepper, and
its incredibly great taste is the reason why. The
role black pepper has played in forming nations
and influencing the development of relations
between the East, West, and Middle East can
still be felt today. Long before the time of the
Pharaohs, black pepper was the spice of choice
for those who could afford it. There is something
about the exotic yet familiar flavor of black
pepper that makes it the perfect seasoning for
most any food. Now that modern production
and transportation methods have made pepper
affordable enough for all to enjoy, it is more
popular than ever, outselling all other spices,
and consumption continues to rise. If you are
trying to decide which peppercorn to buy, we
suggest you start with Tellicherry Peppercorns.
All of our peppercorns have great flavor, but the
Tellicherry Peppercorn is the top grade of Indian
pepper, and the Indian people have been caring
about producing great pepper for a very long
time. Malabar Indian peppercorns are regarded
as having the finest flavor of the mass-produced
varieties. A step above Malabar is Tellicherry–a
larger and more mature peppercorn, possessing
a more developed flavor. Our Sarawak pepper is
rich and bold–well worth a try.

if you really enjoy pepper you will appreciate
the difference. With flavor like this, the idea of
pepper trading at the same price per ounce as

so fill your peppermill while you can. Great on

White Peppercorns
White Peppercorns are regarded by many
parts of the world as the finest flavored, most
preferred pepper, rich and sophisticated.
White peppercorns start out the same as black
peppercorns, but then are allowed to ripen more
fully on the vine, to produce a very large berry
with a looser outer shell. This black outer shell
is then removed in one of two traditional ways:
the Muntok peppercorns are soaked in water
until the black shell loosens, while the Sarawak
peppercorns are held under a constantly flowing
stream of spring water, yielding a whiter color
(see photo at left), and an extra clean product.
Both white peppercorns have the traditional rich,
winey, somewhat hot flavor that is nice used in
soup, on grilled meat or poultry, in light-colored
dishes or mixed with black peppercorns for a
broader range of flavor. Many Asian dishes rely
heavily on the flavor of white pepper, and it is
preferred for cooking the foods of Southeast
Asia, and Southern and Eastern Europe.

PEPPERCORNS
The pepper harvest in Sarawak on the island
of Borneo is a centuries old event that brings
families and friends together to celebrate the
culmination of a year of growth and (with luck)
good weather. The pepper harvest takes place
at the driest time of year, in late June through
early July. In most places pepper merchants
pay a flat fee per
bag, regardless
of quality. One of
the reasons we
enjoy working with
Sarawak pepper
growers is their
belief that high
quality pepper is
worth more than
money. To them it is
a source of pride and
a part of their cultural
heritage.
Harvesting is still
done by hand just as
it has always been.
Determining the peak
of ripeness of pepper
is a hands-on, visual
job. All of the pepper
on a vine does not
mature at the same
rate and the subtle
color differences are closely monitored. Some
spikes of peppercorns are in a better location
Penzeys Spices

on the vine and receive more sunlight and
nutrients, so they can be harvested earlier.
The harvesters must be ready at all times,
as pepper can quickly mature from the dark
green berries used to produce black pepper,
to the yellow and red berries which are then
soaked for white pepper. About 60-70% of the
Sarawak pepper
crop is used to
produce black
pepper. Farmers
carefully plan
their harvest
to fill the high
demand. Creamy
white pepper, the
type we carry at
Penzeys, fetches
the highest price
for farmers. It also
presents a greater
challenge. The
longer pepper is
left to ripen, the
higher the potential
for heavy rains to
wipe out the crop
or the hot sun to
dry the pepper on
the vine. It is the
extra care and risks
the farmers take that produces the rich, sweet
flavor that has made pepper the king of spices
for millennia.
Green Peppercorns
Green peppercorns come from the same
Indian vines as our robust black Tellicherry
peppercorns, but are harvested before they
mature, yielding green pepper with a fresh,
clean flavor. Well-suited for poultry, vegetables
and seafood. Dried green peppercorns can be
ground in a peppermill like black peppercorns
or crushed between your fingers. From India.

Pink Peppercorns
From the French island of Reunion. These
expensive pink berries add a touch of color and
a rich, sweet flavor to almost any dish. Unlike

Ground Black Pepper
Indian Black Tellicherry. Our ground pepper
is the finest in the nation. Pure premium grade
peppercorns, ground often to ensure freshness.
The pepper is sifted to four popular sizes, from
a fine shaker grind, to large coarse chunks,
suitable to meet every need. Mesh is a term
that refers to the number of openings per linear
inch in a sifting screen. A fine grind, such as a
30/60 mesh, would sift through a screen with 30
openings per inch, but would stay atop a smaller
screen of 60 openings per inch.

WHAT
DOES MESH SIZE MEAN?
The “mesh size” of a ground spice is the industry
standard for determining particle size. After
spices are ground, they are sifted through
wire-cloth screens to obtain varying degrees of
fineness and coarseness of the finished product.
Like regular cloth, wire-cloth is woven, using
wires instead of thread. The mesh size itself refers
to how many openings there are per linear inch.
The more openings there are, the smaller the
holes will be, and the finer the finished product.
A four mesh screen will have four large
openings per inch, and a sixty mesh screen will
have sixty very small openings per inch. A spice
listed as 4/6 would sift through a four mesh
screen and stay on top of a six mesh screen. It
would be very large, such as a cracked bay leaf
used in pickling spice. A spice listed as 60 mesh
would be very finely powdered and would sift
through a screen with sixty tiny openings per inch
(most likely a baking spice such as cinnamon,
which is desirable as a fine powder).
Ground pepper is the best example of a spice
that needs to be processed to a variety of very
specific mesh sizes to meet the needs of every
cook. Our pepper is ground with a grist mill
and sifted to obtain large pieces (cracked, 10/16
mesh), medium pieces (coarse, 20/30 mesh), and
fine (30/60 mesh).
It would be nice if pepper could simply be
ground and put on a stack of sifters as the
illustration shows, to obtain all the different sized
particles with one grind. But it isn’t that simple.
Pepper has to be ground in several batches,
adjusting the grinder each time to obtain not
only the largest amount of the size particle we
need at that moment, but the particle that is
most “right.” This is done more by feel than by
any specific measurement adjustments to the
grinding mechanism–which is why we really
respect the Penzey’s grinding team. It is relatively
easy to obtain a 10/16 piece of pepper, but it is
not easy to obtain one that has the distinctive
look of “cracked” pepper. White pepper is even
more difficult. Only recently have we developed
the technology to produce even the smallest
amounts of coarse (20/30) white pepper, as it
becomes a very fine powder as soon as it hits the
grinding plate. In addition, a great deal of pepper
has to be ground to obtain a decent amount of
20/30 pepper, as there is not a big difference in a
20 mesh screen and a 30 mesh screen.
Our pepper is ground quite often, and then
quickly packed in the barrier-seal bags so it
will be absolutely fresh when opened. Pepper
grinders are nice, but nothing beats using a
pepper shaker to heavily and quickly coat a large
roast before cooking.

Ground White Pepper
Finely ground white pepper has traditionally
been used in Western cooking where specks of
black pepper would be objectionable, such as
in white sauces, cream soups and fish dishes.
Coarse grind white pepper is the size and type
of pepper preferred in Southeast Asia where it is
sprinkled heavily on meats, especially beef and
pork before grilling, broiling or stir-frying.

PEPPER
BLENDS
A combination of peppercorns is a nice change of pace for the tabletop
pepper grinder. Black, white and green peppercorns all start as the same
berry, but are picked at different times and dried in different ways, allowing
each to develop its own distinctive flavor. Four Peppercorn, European, and
French style peppercorns give robust flavor to meat, poultry, salads and
vegetables. Lemon-Pepper and Shallot-Pepper are popular, versatile, ground
pepper blends, while Mignonette Pepper is a coarse blend mixed with
coriander, that is great for longer cooking times of large roasts or the higher
temperatures of grilling and broiling.
Mignonette Pepper
A classical blend, also known as "shot pepper,"
of cracked Tellicherry black pepper, Muntok
white pepper and flavorful Moroccan coriander.
Traditional in French-Canadian cooking and
roasting large cuts of beef, lamb or poultry.
Excellent on a thick grilled steak or veal chop.
Coarse enough to put in a peppermill.

Zassenhaus Peppermills
Zassenhaus of Germany has been making
mills for over 100 years. They guarantee all of
their peppermills for ten years. The grinding
mechanism is made out of carbon tool steel,
not plastic. The
steel is machined and
then hardened,
instead of cast,
so it won’t wear
out. Zassenhaus
peppermills are
fully adjustable–from
shaker grind to coarse,
producing a uniform
particle size at every
setting. To fill the
peppermill and adjust
the grind, screw off
the turret top. Fill with
peppercorns, then
place the top back on. The
tighter the top is screwed on,
the finer the ground pepper will be. If the top
is screwed halfway down, there will be a large
opening in the grinding mechanism, allowing
big chunks of pepper to fall through. If the top
is screwed down tightly, there will be a small
opening for fine pepper. All mills filled with
Tellicherry black peppercorn.

Lemon-Pepper Seasoning
One of the great, classic blends. Originally it was
used primarily for fish: baked, broiled, grilled or
fried. It is equally good, and just as popular, on
chicken. Sprinkle on 1-2 tsp. per pound, before
breading, if desired. Great for turkey or duck
breast, pork roast, chops or cutlets and all cuts
of veal (especially stuffed, baked veal breast).
It's the best spice possible for scrambled eggs
and omelets, and a must for catfish. Hand-mixed
from: salt, Special Extra Bold black pepper,
citric acid, lemon peel, garlic and minced green
onion. For salt-free lemon-pepper, see Sunny
Spain.

Mace
Mace, the lace-like, dried covering of the
nutmeg, is a sweet and flavorful spice well worth
using. Mace has a softer flavor than nutmeg, and
for a nice change of pace it can be used in place
of nutmeg in any recipe. Blade Mace can also be
added to clear soups and sauces where powder
might spoil the appearance.

Nutmeg
Both Grenadian and East Indian ground nutmeg
are easy to use and flavorful. Whole nutmeg
are very large, about 80 per lb. (5-6 nutmeg per
oz.), making them easier to grate by hand. Ten
seconds of rubbing on a small-holed grater will
yield 1/2 tsp. of fresh, flavorful nutmeg. Grenada
in the West Indies grows some of the finest
nutmeg in the world, when using Grenadian
nutmeg, use 2/3 of what the recipe calls for, it is
very potent. Nutmeg is a must for bbq sauce. In
Europe, nutmeg is used atop most bakery and
hot chocolate.

Oregano
For traditional Italian-American cooking, the
sweet, strong flavor of Turkish oregano can’t
be beat. Our travels to this area have allowed
us to import some wonderful Turkish oregano,
the best we've seen in years. Try some on
baked chicken, pork, and fish. For a simple
salad dressing or marinade, mix 1 TB. TURKISH
OREGANO with 1/2 tsp. each black pepper and
garlic, add to 1/2 Cup olive oil and 2 TB. balsamic
or red wine vinegar. Add salt to taste and a dash
of honey and/or brown mustard for green or
pasta salads, chicken, lamb, fish, or vegetables.
MEXICAN OREGANO is strong, pungent and less
sweet, great for chili. For easy GUACAMOLE,
mash 2 ripe avocados with the juice of 1 lime,
1
/2 tsp each MEXICAN OREGANO, cumin, garlic,
salt, and a dash of cayenne.

water to 1 part peel, let stand 15 minutes.
Substitute 1/3 as much dry as recipe calls for.

Ozark Seasoning
A classic Southern blend of black pepper and
herbs. What could be better than the flavor
of fried chicken without the fat? Sprinkle
Ozark Seasoning on chicken, fish or chops,
bake or saute for mouth-watering flavor and
a healthy meal. Use about 1 tsp. of Ozark on
each chicken breast, pork chops or fish fillets.
Sprinkle on green beans - almost as good as the
meat. Another great use for Ozark Seasoning
is in scrambled eggs. Hand-mixed from: salt,
Tellicherry black pepper, spices and herbs,
granulated garlic, and paprika.

Cinnamon
brought in from the countryside. These are then
Chinese Cassia Cinnamon
cleaned and sorted into varying grades
depending on the flavor. The strength of
the flavor of spices depends upon the
essential oil content–the higher the level,
the stronger the flavor. The sticks are stored
in large colonial style warehouse rooms. When orders for cinnamon
come in, the large sticks are cracked into slightly smaller pieces and
packed into burlap bags for shipment. Most of the work is done by
local farmers to supplement the meager income they receive from
their rice crops ($200 per year).
The second type of cinnamon, Ceylon, or "true" cinnamon,
has a much different flavor. It is less sweet, with a more complex,
citrus flavor. Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as oldfashioned cinnamon and is prized in many other areas of Ceylon
the world. The special flavor of English and Mexican sweets Cinnamon
comes from Ceylon cinnamon. We like to
recommend Ceylon Cinnamon for baking
with fruit - especially in apple pie.
There are two main types of cinnamon. Cassia cinnamon is native to
Southeast Asia, especially southern China and northern Vietnam, and has
the strong, spicy-sweet flavor most Americans are familiar with. Vietnamese
and Chinese cassia are the sweetest and strongest varieties, with Korintje
cassia having a smooth flavor with less bite. Our cinnamon sticks and
Korintje cinnamon both come from the southwest coast of Sumatra in
Indonesia. It grows wild on the government-protected slopes of Mount
Kerinci, where the cinnamon gets its name. We stock the top Korintje
A grade, although there are also the lower B and C grades, which are
the types of cinnamon usually sold in supermarkets in the U.S. From the
mountain slopes, where it is harvested, it is trucked down to the port town
of Padang where it is graded and washed. Then it is either cracked for
Korintje A, or cut for sticks.
Our very sweet and strong Vietnamese cassia comes from the remote
north and west regions of Vietnam. It is processed in a small, beautiful
village, about 30 kilometers west of Hanoi. The people here have been
harvesting and cracking cinnamon for over 400 years (maybe even
longer).
Large thick sticks about 18 inches long and 2 inches in diameter are
Extra Fancy Vietnamese Cassia Cinnamon
Korintje
Cinnamon
Chinese Cassia Cinnamon
China cassia cinnamon is our bestselling
cinnamon. China cinnamon is strong, sweet,
and spicier than Korintje, a flavor which has
been prized for centuries. China cinnamon is
an excellent all-purpose cinnamon, it adds great
flavor to all baked goods, from Christmas cookies
to pumpkin pie. It’s also great for cinnamon
sugar–mix 2-3 tsp. in 1/2 cup granulated white
sugar. Sprinkle a bit of China cinnamon into the
batter for French toast, waffles, or pancakes. Use
to dust oatmeal or add to powdered sugar to top
fresh fruit.

Vietnamese
Cinnamon
Ceylon Cinnamon
Vietnamese cinnamon is the strongest, richest,
and sweetest cinnamon around. For traditional
cinnamon recipes such as gooey cinnamon
rolls, the vibrant flavor of Vietnamese cinnamon
really shines. It is so strong, that in most recipes it
should be cut back by about 1/3, but it is perfect
used full strength in any recipe where cinnamon
is the main, delicious flavor.

Korintje Cassia Cinnamon
Sweet and mellow, Korintje cinnamon is the
type of cinnamon we all remember from our
childhood. Fragrant Korintje cinnamon is as
strong as China cinnamon, but smoother and
not as nippy. We love Korintje cinnamon for
sprinkling–on hot cereal, oatmeal and cream of
wheat, French toast, pancakes and waffles, sugar
cookies, and pie crusts. Perfect for cinnamon
breads, quick, yeast, or toasted with raisins.

Cinnamon Sugar
Complex and fragrant, with a citrus overtone and
rich buff color, Although Ceylon Cinnamon is
less strong than cassia, its hint of citrusy flavor
and lack of any bite whatsoever makes it the
favorite in both England and Mexico where it is
preferred over cassia for all uses. Ceylon 00000

“Get Out and Vote”
Apple Pie
Get Out and Vote Apple Pie
With sweet and easy cookie crust
This recipe is long, but not because it is difficult, we’ve
just thoroughly explained the steps. Even if it is your
first pie, it will turn out wonderfully.
We love Ceylon Cinnamon with fruit, and this apple pie
shows why - Ceylon Cinnamon gives the apples just
the right hint of fragrant flavor without overpowering
their apple goodness. The sugar cookie pie crust is quite
easy, great for beginning crust makers. It isn’t flaky, so
the ingredients don’t have to be icy cold or carefully
handled. The crust is easy to roll out and get into the
pan in one piece, and has a wonderful sweet flavor that
children love, especially when topped with cinnamony
apple bits. It’s nicest to make the pie dough a day ahead
and refrigerate until one hour before you want to roll it
out. It makes pie-making a nicer experience, as the job is
broken into two parts, and the dough has been completed
and cleaned up before the pie making begins.
Cookie Crust
This recipe makes enough for a deep-dish pie with a
lattice top, or a regular pie with a top crust.
21/2
1
1/2
1/2
1/2
1/4
2
Cups all-purpose flour
tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
Cup butter
Cup granulated white sugar
Cup VANILLA SUGAR
large eggs
Have all ingredients at room temperature. Sift
together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.
Cream butter with sugar and VANILLA SUGAR, add
eggs, one at a time, mix until combined, then add
flour mixture in three parts, mixing to combine on
low speed after each addition. A hand mixer works
well, or the dough can be blended by hand, since it
is cookie dough. Sometimes with the high powered
processors and mixers available today, the dough
gets over mixed - it is better to have a light touch.
Divide the dough into two parts, about 2/3 in one
part and 1/3 in the other. Lay the dough down on a
large piece of saran wrap and pat one dough ball
into a flat circle about 1/2 inch thick (this makes
rolling the crust out easier). Wrap the saran up and
over the top and refrigerate. Repeat with the other
ball of dough. This is the time to take a break. If you
insist on doing it all at once, have the filling ready to
go and turn on the oven before starting the dough
making. Instead of refrigerating the pie dough after
dividing it into two pieces, proceed directly to rolling
out the crust.
Apple Filling
McIntosh or Granny Smith apples are great for pie. Fruit
that is a bit on the over-ripe side is wonderful for pie.
The Pie
Remove pie-dough from refrigerator to allow it to
come to room temperature before rolling. Preheat
oven to 375°. Prepare apple filling. Have your pie
pan ready to go and place it right next to your pie
crust rolling spot. Remove the saran wrap from the
larger round of dough Lightly flour your rolling
pin and table, then roll the dough gently from the
center out to form a larger and larger circle. If the
dough tears a bit, it can still be used, but the nice
thing about the cookie crust is that it usually doesn’t.
The perfect pie-crust is about 1/8” thick, but if this
is one of your first crusts, it will still taste great if it
is a bit thicker, and it will be easier to handle. Turn
the dough over once while rolling, sprinkling a bit
of flour on the top first. This ensures it isn’t sticking
to the table - and don’t lean on the rolling pin - roll
lightly. When the circle of dough is about 2 inches
larger in diameter than the top of your pie pan,
slide your hands underneath and gently, pick up
the dough and quickly place it in the pie dish Press
the crust gently into place along the edges of the pie
pan, so there won’t be air bubbles in the crust. Trim
off any extra dough that is hanging over the sides
of the pan, leaving enough dough to cover the top
edge of the pan. Roll out the smaller circle of dough
in the same fashion. Ideally, you’d like six 1/2 inch
6-7 Cups sliced apples (6 large apples )
1/2
Cup granulated white sugar
2 tsp. CEYLON CINNAMON (or KORINTJE
OR CHINA - reduce to 1 tsp. if using
VIETNAMESE)
2 tsp. ARROWROOT STARCH (3 tsp. if the apples
are very juicy)
Peel and slice the apples. The fastest way to do this
is to cut out the core by chopping off the four sides
of the peeled apple, as close to the core as possible.
Lay the apples sliced side down, and slice into 5
or 6 pieces. The pieces should be on the thin side,
but you don’t have to spend ages chopping. Put the
cut pieces in a large bowl. Stir together the sugar,
CEYLON CINNAMON and ARROWROOT STARCH.
Pour over the apples and stir gently (tossing with
your hands is even better) to coat.

strips running each way for a lattice crust, 12 strips
in all. There is more than enough dough to suffice,
you may have extra to discard, but that’s better than
coming up short. The dough may have to be re
rolled a few times to get nice long strips. Don’t worry
if the strips break in half, they’ll bake back together
quite nicely. Pour the cut apples with their juice
into the pie pan. The apple pieces don’t have to be
individually placed, but it is best that they mostly be
laying flat, without a lot of airspace between them,
so the pie bakes evenly and the lattice top has a solid
foundation. Once the apples are in the pan, cut the
strips and lay across the pie. The strips don’t have to
be woven, they can be laid across each other and
it will look quite beautiful. If the strips are nice and
pliable, go ahead and weave them over and under.
Finally, press the rim of the pie all around the circle
with a fork to make a pretty edge and help hold the
shell together. You can also flute the edge or use a
pretty pasty roller. Sprinkle the top with VANILLA
SUGAR if desired (about 1 TB), and place in the
oven. Bake the pie for ten minutes at 375°, then for
another 45-55 minutes at 350°, until the crust is nicely
browned and the apples are soft and bubbly. Keep
an eye on the crust, if it starts getting quite brown
before the pie is done, cover the edge with a thin
strip of aluminum foil. Remove the pie from the oven,
let cool for at least two hours before serving. The way
our Grammas did it is still best - bake the pie in the
early morning hours when the air is cool, then let
the pie sit all day on a breezy windowsill - by dinner
the pie will be perfect. Cut the pie carefully and use
a pie server or a flexible spatula. Just remember to
loosen the top edge, which is usually attached quite
firmly, before you try to remove the pie pieces. The
first piece is still difficult, and may not come out in
a perfect wedge, but that is common, and the rest of
the pieces will be fine. This is a great pie to serve with
ice cream or sharp cheddar cheese.
Yield: 1 All American Apple Pie. Prep. time: 30-60
minutes, depending upon how many pies you’ve
made. Baking time: roughly one hour.

Spice and Herb Storage Tips
How should I store my spices and how much should I buy?
Buying larger quantities of spices saves money.
However, buying too much of a spice and
discarding it because it has been around too long is
a waste. The government’s guideline for freshness
dating is 4 years for whole spices and 2 years for
ground. Some people say six months is the longest
spices should be stored. Since most spices are
harvested once a year, it does not make sense to
discard them every six months. On the other hand,
2 years is too long for finely powdered spices. A
good rule of thumb is to buy a one year’s supply of
herbs or ground spices, and a one-two year supply
of whole spices. Each spice contains hundreds of
flavor components. It is the quantity and balance
of these components that determines the quality of
the spice. These flavor components will dissipate
at different rates. A top quality spice may be better
at two years old than a low quality spice at two
months. When in doubt about a spice, just smell it.
If it smells strong and spicy, use it. If not, toss it.
Old spices never go bad, they just fade away.
Spices must be stored properly to maintain strong,
fresh flavor. Heat, light, moisture and air all speed
the loss of flavor and color. Glass or barrier plastic
containers (such as those we use at Penzeys) are
very good. DO NOT store your spices near a heat
source: on top of the stove, dishwasher, refrigerator
or microwave, or near the sink or a heating vent.
The best way to avoid light is to put the spices
inside a cupboard or a drawer. If an open spice
rack is being used, place it out of direct sunlight.
Some folks say that all spices should be stored in
the refrigerator or the freezer. Whole, crushed and
ground chili peppers (including paprika) will stay
fresh and colorful longer in cool storage, especially
in the Summer months. Other than vanilla beans
and extract, the flavor of spices will not be
damaged by cold. The problem is that spices stored
in the fridge tend to be used less. Out of sight, out of
mind, or something like that. The best way to deal
with this is to keep smaller quantities of spices out
in the cooking area and larger backup supplies in
the refrigerator or freezer.

Paprika
Hungarian Sweet Paprika is a traditional
spice with delicious flavor and vibrant
color-one of the best spices from Gram’s
kitchen - just a sprinkle adds a flavorful and
colorful touch to meat, fish and poultry
- not to mention goulash. Hungarian Sweet
Paprika is the best in the world, as Hungary
has the sunshine needed for sweet, rich
flavor, and the knowledgeable farmers to
nurture the crop from planting to harvest.

Pizza Seasoning
Pizza Seasoning is one of our favorites,
both for adding spicy Italian flavor to
bland frozen pizzas and for boosting the
flavor of low-fat dishes, such as making
Italian-style sausage with ground turkey.
Pizza Seasoning also gives an almost
meaty flavor to plain old tomato sauce, as
the fennel seed makes it taste like you’ve
added Italian sausage without the fat. Mix
1 TB. Pizza Seasoning in 1-2 Cups tomato
sauce, brush on pizza crust or pita bread
and sprinkle with cheese and toppings
as desired. For sausage, use 1 TB. per
lb. Hand-mixed from: salt, fennel seed,
oregano, sugar, garlic, black pepper, basil,
onion, red pepper.

Kashmir "Mogra Cream" Indian Saffron is
the world's finest saffron. The dark red color
and long perfect strands are as beautiful
as they are colorful and flavorful. Kashmir
saffron is extremely difficult to obtain,
which makes it higher in price, but Kashmir
Mogra Cream Saffron is truly wonderful.
Kashmir Mogra Cream Saffron
Spanish Coupé Saffron is the top grade of
the Spanish Saffron crop. Extra hand labor
is used to remove every bit of the yellow
saffron style material, leaving 100% beautiful
pure red saffron threads -hence the name:
coupé, which means "to cut", as in cutting
off all the yellow bits. Spanish Coupé
Saffron is a truly excellent crop, especially
nice for the traditional Spanish dishes.
Coupé Spanish Saffron
Spanish Superior Saffron is the most
widely available saffron and is a very good
crop. Spanish Superior Saffron has a bit of the
yellow style material left attached to some of
the saffron stigmas (see photo), so it is not
quite as strong as Spanish Coupé or Kashmir
Indian Saffron.

Saffron
is the stigma of
the fall flowering crocus. Peek
inside most any flower and
you will see three threadlike
filaments. These are stigma but only in the saffron crocus are
these stigma worth thousands
of dollars per pound.
Saffron is so valuable because
it is a very labor in ten sive
crop; only 5-7 pounds of
saffron can be produced from
each acre of land. This makes
saffron the most expensive
spice by weight - it always
has been - but by use saffron
isn't that expensive, because a
little goes a long way. A single
gram of saffron easily translates
into golden color and fragrant
flavor in 10 recipes of saffron
rice for four, several batches of
bread, or a couple of big pots of
paella. At Penzeys, we sell three
different grades of Saffron:

Turkey Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich turkey stock, use 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. Turkey Base
for each cup hot water. This is equivalent to 1
bouillon cube, though Turkey Base has more
flavor and less salt. Plain broth is good food for
those times you’re under the weather, or add
vegetables or noodles for a quick lunch. Turkey
Base is often used to extend turkey gravy for
holiday dinners, or to fortify the flavor of dishes
made with turkey leftovers, such as soup, stew
or casseroles. For 2 quarts of soup or stew made
with leftovers, add 2-3 tsp. Turkey Base. For
gravy, add 2 tsp. Turkey Base with 4-5 TB. turkey
drippings for 3 Cups gravy.
#90386.................................................................. $ 6.90/8 oz.
we’ve added Pork and Seafood Soup
Base. Our soup bases are great for a broth,

seasonings. Try a bit in rice, vegetables and
casseroles–wherever you need a bit of extra
flavor. Refrigeration is recommended, but
not necessary.
Pork Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich roast pork flavored stock, use 1/2 - 3/4 tsp.
Pork Base for each cup (8 oz.) hot water. This is
equivalent to 1 bouillon cube, though Pork Soup
Base has more flavor and less salt. Try making
pork noodle soup for a nice change of pace, just
use pork instead of chicken or beef, and add 1
TB. Pork Soup Base to 2 quarts soup to enhance
the flavor. For truly great gravy, add 1 tsp. Pork
Base to 2-3 TB. drippings from pork roast or pork
chops for 2 Cups gravy.

Start by making sausage patties, they’re easy and
tasty. Use half ground pork or beef, half turkey or
chicken for lower fat sausage. Mix in the desired
amount of seasoning, and form patties by hand.
Venison Sausage Seasoning
Also for summer sausage. Venison is very lean,
so it is best to mix with beef and/or pork (1/3 of
each works well), resulting in a juicy flavorful
sausage. For other great venison seasonings see

VANILLA
Vanilla beans are
the cigar-shaped
seedpods of the
fragrant climbing
orchids native to
tropical Mexico but
now grown in other
tropical regions,
most notably
Madagascar. It
is an incredibly
labor intensive crop to produce and harvest.
Pollinated and cultivated by hand, the green
“beans” are picked, then gently warmed to activate
the flavors and to begin the curing process. The
beans are sun-dried during the day and taken in at
night for a period of up to 6 months until they are
ready for hand measuring, grading, and shipping.
The rich flavor of pure vanilla is like no other.
It just wouldn’t be dessert without vanilla.
Vanilla Beans from Madagascar and Mexico,
where there is a long history of growing
vanilla, have wonderful, strong flavor, and are
best used in ice cream and custard, beverages
and cheesecake, where the liquid in the dish
helps extract the flavor of the bean. Given
that one whole vanilla bean is usually used
Madagascar
Mexican
per recipe, it is easy to see why Pure Vanilla
Extract is the more popular and economical
choice - if one can use economical and vanilla
in the same sentence. Using 1 teaspoon per
dessert, a 4 fluid ounce bottle of extract
will yield 24 desserts - more or less anyway,
given that most of us add a bigger splash
than the recipe calls for. Even our Single
Strength Vanilla Extract is 10% stronger
than the grocery store variety, and our
Double strength Vanilla will give you twice
as much vanilla flavor. Vanilla Sugar is a
more recent introduction here at Penzeys,
but has been made and used for years and
years by Grandmas everywhere, who simply
split a vanilla bean and place it in sugar until
it becomes rich with vanilla flavor, then
remove the bean and use the sugar in their
baking, replacing 1 TB. of the regular sugar
in the recipe with 1 TB. of Vanilla Sugar. We
also love tossing Vanilla Sugar with fresh fruit
like strawberries - after a few minutes even
kids think it is as good as a cookie.
Madagascar Vanilla Bean
Regarded as the world's best, Madagascar beans
set the standard for prime vanilla flavor.

Mexican Vanilla Bean
Mexican beans, while similar to Madagascar,
have a darker flavor that is perfect for vanilla
liqueur and coffee drinks.

Vanilla Sugar
Single Strength Vanilla
35% alcohol. Pure extract from the highest
quality 100% premium Madagascar "Bourbon
Islands" vanilla beans. These beans have a
rich and complex, smooth, true flavor. The
cool-perking process retains the bean's full
flavor, along with all of the desirable vanilla
side notes. With over 400 flavor components in
every high-quality vanilla bean, artificial vanilla
(which contains only one–synthetic vanillin)
will never come close to matching the wonderful
richness of pure vanilla extract. This extract is
10% stronger than the pure vanilla extract sold
in supermarkets, and has the great Madagascar
flavor. Ingredients: water, alcohol, sugar and
vanilla bean extractives.
4 fluid ounce bottle ................#92151 ....................... $ 13.49
16 fluid ounce bottle ..............#92119 ....................... $ 46.49
Double Strength Vanilla
35% alcohol. Pure double strength vanilla extract
made from the highest quality Madagascar
"Bourbon Islands" vanilla beans. Compared to
the single strength, twice as many beans are
used to make each gallon of extract (about 200
beans). "Two-fold" vanilla extract has been the
secret ingredient of professional bakers for years.
For the amount of vanilla flavor specified in a
recipe, use half as much. When used this way,
double strength vanilla makes economic sense,
as there is the equivalent of twice as much vanilla
per bottle. For unbeatably rich vanilla flavor in
baked goods and desserts, use the same amount
the recipe calls for. Ingredients: water, alcohol,
sugar and vanilla bean extractives.

Wash and cut fruit, leaving slightly damp, then
toss with Vanilla Sugar (1-2 TB. per quart of
strawberries, for example) and let stand for a
few minutes, then serve plain or as a topper
for cereal or ice cream. Vanilla Sugar is an
old-fashioned mix of real Vanilla Beans aged in
pure sugar, that was used in the old days before
Vanilla Extract. We’ve been blending and using
Vanilla Sugar in our coffee for a long time, and it
tastes great. Vanilla Sugar can be used in baking
and candy-making, and is particularly nice
where the flavor of the vanilla bean should shine
through, such as in ice-cream. Vanilla sugar
is also the perfect sprinkle for coffee, and hot
chocolate. Madagascar and Indonesian Vanilla
Beans chopped, mixed and aged with white
Sugar.

prices have gone up, and
A NOTE TO OUR CUSTOMERS: Vanilla
for that we are sorry. It seems
that every force which can drive the price of spices up has occurred
at the same time regarding Vanilla Beans. The cost of Vanilla has
gone up insanely to us, and we have tried to pass on as little of the
increase as possible, but Vanilla is just too expensive right now. As
much as we love Vanilla, we are having a hard time using it ourselves
at these prices. We hope very much that prices will come down, but
we aren't sure of that, we just hope that next part of the cycle will be
a decrease in prices, not another round of increases.
COLOSSAL COOKIE with fresh fruit topping
Colossal Cookie with fresh fruit topping
Easy and delicious - a last taste of Summer before the
berries disappear til next year.
Cookie:
1
1
1
1
3
1
Cup butter, softened–2 sticks
Cup sugar
large egg
tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Cups all-purpose flour
tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 375°. Cream together the butter and
sugar. Add the egg and the VANILLA, mix until well
blended. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour
and baking powder then gradually add to the butter
mixture and blend well on low speed. Knead the
dough briefly into a smooth ball. Place the dough
on a regular sized pizza pan and pat out gently to the
edges. Bake 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden
brown on the edges. Let cool before topping.
Topping:
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (we like reduced
fat Neufchatel cheese)
1/2 Cup sugar
1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Fruit:
1 12 oz. package fresh strawberries
1 pint raspberries
1/2 pint blueberries
3 TB. VANILLA SUGAR
1 TB. RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT
To prepare the topping, start with the fruit. The
strawberries need a little time in the VANILLA
SUGAR to be at their best. Rinse and quarter the
strawberries, place in a small bowl and sprinkle
with VANILLA SUGAR. Stir vigorously to get the
strawberry juice to start, then cover and set aside.
Gently wash the raspberries and blueberries,
discarding any soft berries, and set aside the most
perfect raspberry for the centerpiece. Hopefully you
will have enough nice raspberries left to make a ring
around the whole cookie.
Using a mixer on high speed, whip the cream
cheese with the sugar and PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
until creamy. Spread over the cooled cookie crust
almost to the edge. Make a nice design with the
blueberries and raspberries, starting with the one
perfect strawberry in the middle. Spoon some of
the strawberries on randomly - everything shouldn’t
look perfect. Mix the RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT
into the strawberry syrup left at the bottom of the
strawberry bowl - this will thicken it just enough to
make a nice glaze. Use a spoon to drizzle the glaze
over the berries. As delicious as it is beautiful.
Serves: 12-16. Prep. time: 20 minutes.
Baking time: 10 minutes.
Pure
Extracts Penzeys sells only pure extracts; no additives are used. Only the finest vanilla beans, oranges, lemons and almonds are carefully extracted

muffins: boil 1/2 Cup water, 1/4 Cup sugar and 1 tsp. of PURE VANILLA, ORANGE, ALMOND or LEMON EXTRACT for 2 minutes, then let cool. Brush on finished bakery
as a glaze, or use between cake layers before frosting.
Pure Lemon Extract
Pure Orange Extract
30% alcohol. Pure, strong, fragrant almond flavor.
Use in small amounts (usually 1/2 tsp. per batch)
to flavor cookies, bars, bread and crackers or add a
drop to sweeten waffles. Also traditional for Middle
Eastern meat stews, Indian sweet rice pudding and
mild curry. Excellent with fruit for pie or muffins.
77% alcohol. Pure, true lemon flavor, perfect
for baked goodies, especially cheesecakes, where
it is often used with lemon zest. Add a dash to fish,
pork and poultry marinades. Also nice in sherbet,
added to fresh fruit, for glazes and frostings, and
great for candy-making. Use with Vanilla Extract
for a delicious 1-2 punch.

and is great for candy-making.
Pthatrettyunusual
simple moment really. Not
or out of the ordinary.
It happened in my own back yard. It
was a few months back. We were going
to go out to eat, meeting up with my
wife Jeri’s family. I am not a big go
out to eat person to begin with and
since Teddi’s birth we really had not
been out at all. Teddi has been a very
happy baby but a few months back
there were still times that she would
randomly up and cry for fifteen-twenty
minutes. The fact that you never knew
when it would happen meant that you
could never really relax when at any
moment you would have a crying baby
on your hands. Says something about
most restaurants that they really are
not the kind of place to take a child.
Salsa Verde
This uses the tomatillo as its main ingredient. These
look similar to a green tomato except you buy them
with a papery covering which needs to be removed
before cooking. This hot little number will go with
all mexican wraps and makes a great chip dip.

Tomatillo
JALAPENO PEPPER
clove of garlic
onion
tsp salt
bunch of cilantro
Wash and boil the tomatillos with the JALAPENO
PEPPER until soft about 20 mins. Drain the
Tomatillo and place in a food processor (or
blender) with the JALAPENO PEPPER . Add the
other ingredients and blend to give a chunky
salsa. Best served slighty warm with you favourite
chips or wrap.
Yield: 3 cups. Prep. time: 5 minutes. Cooking time:
15-20 minutes.
When I heard Jeri wanted to go out
to eat I was like -why do you want
to do that? I can make something
we can invite everybody over, hang
out here and relax. But then she
said we were thinking of going to
Conejito’s and it all made sense.
Sure that would be fun. Conejito’s is
on the corner of 6th and Virginia on
Milwaukee’s near south side. It’s real.
While other spots in the neighborhood
have fancied themselves up so they
can charge higher prices to the young
professionals that now frequent them,
Conejito’s has resisted the trend. I
have a real respect for places that
keep prices low so that everyone
can afford them. Like all Mexican
restaurants they have authentic
music on the jukebox but here they
still have the accordions and tuba that
seem to have been banished from the
trendier spots. They also have the best
rib dinner in Milwaukee for under four
and a quarter. $4.20, pretty pricey I
know, but they do give you a meaty
chunk of 4-5 ribs in mole sauce, four
tortillas, very good Mexican rice and
exceptional beans. Good stuff.
Teddi was wonderful while I held her
through the salsa and chips but as
soon as the food came she started
crying. Jeri took Teddi so I could eat
quick and then take Teddi back and she
could eat. As much as Conejito’s is the
kind of place that a crying baby is not
going to bring the place to a stop we
were still kind of new at the parenting
thing and it was stressful to be the
parents of a crying baby in
a restaurant. Teddi could sense this,
and if we were not going to be calm
neither was she. Just as I had resigned
myself to not being able to enjoy my
ribs, one of the waitresses who had
been watching the whole scene unfold
asked Jeri “Can I hold?” Normally Jeri
is not too keen on letting strangers
hold her daughter, but it seemed like
the thing to do at the time. It was the
thing to do, in fact it was better than
the thing to do, it was wonderful. Teddi
calmed down instantly and became
her normal charming smiling self. The
waitress danced my baby girl about
showing her off to everyone else
working there. I am getting kind of
used to women ooing and aahing over
Teddi, but here even the sixteen-yearold busboys stopped what they were
doing and were really happy to have
this little baby smiling at them. We
still ate quickly but the stress of the
moment had passed.
Earlier that week I had read that
there was a new report out that
said by 2050 whites would become
a minority in the U.S. This being an
election year it seemed the people who
were hyping the report were trying to
create a sense of alarm. As I loaded
my next tortilla I could not see the
problem. Yes, this year’s election is a
big one and once again we all seem to
be choosing sides. If I had one wish
from my experiences traveling, it
would be that people would not cast
their ballot based on a fear the world
is against us. The world is not against
us and our allies are still our allies.
This year you can still get elected to
lead this country by appealing to
just one group of people, just one
culture. The problem is the world is
not just one culture. It takes wisdom
to find nuanced solutions that will be
embraced as fair and just to people who
start from different points of view.
For generations this was understood
no matter what party was in charge.
Both sides sent out the wisest men
and women of our country to build
the bridges to the world that made
our country secure and prosperous.
Now with our monoculture view, our
bridge crew’s only tool is the torch.
Rather than admit we have made a
misstep, we have compounded our
problems by spinning peace making
so it is no longer blessed (spinning
wisdom into weakness).
I also understand the desire to preserve
values, but the values we hear so much
about this year are human values and
don’t just belong to any one group.
Virtually everyone everywhere has
them. If there is a recurring theme
to my experiences traveling, it is that
wherever I go it is always the same set
of values that lead to true success in
life. Happiness belongs to those people
who care about others around them.
From England to Japan and all places
in between, including North America, it
is caring and doing for others, the acts
that bring people together, that move the
world forward. It is the people who love
and care for those around them that are
continually inheriting the earth.
Whatever happens November 2nd 2004,
November 4th 2052 is right around the
corner. I imagine that Election Day will
in many ways be the same as this one,
with one big exception. In 2052 we will
all be minorities. If we still have the two
party system you will no longer be able to
be elected by appealing to only one group.
My hope is by then we will not be just
legally tolerating, but warmly including
the diverse groups of people that make
up this country. Anyway, sitting there
listening to the accordions, eating my
ribs and watching this woman and the
joy she and her coworkers were taking
in the baby of a stranger, I
had no problem whatsoever
with her children and mine
sharing this country. With
her grandchildren and mine
sharing the future. It was at that
point I realized I was having a
travel moment, and only twelve
minutes from home.
I love the world,

GARLIC
Cup onion (1 small onion)

Snap the stem end off the chili peppers and shake out
the seeds. Wash the tomatoes and boil tomatoes and
chili peppers until soft (about 15 minutes). Drain and
put into a blender or food processor. Add garlic and
onion and whizz to a chunky consistency. Add salt
and taste–add more salt if desired. If you are serving
the salsa with chips, it is always best to taste it on a
chip, otherwise the tendency is to add more salt than
necessary. This is great served warm or it can be stored
in a jar in the fridge.

Roasted Pork in Red Chili Sauce
A delicious alternative to beef or chicken tacos. The pork shoulder will
give you a richer flavor but the loin roast is leaner and more tender.
We usually use whichever is on sale. The sauce can be made ahead
of time and refrigerated overnight. Like many things, it only gets better
with age.
Tasty Beans
Start with fat free refried beans–adding a bit of sour cream and shredded cheese will dress them up quite nicely without coming anywhere
near the fat and calories of the regular variety.

tsp. GRANULATED GARLIC

Cups water
GUAJILLO PEPPERS
TB lime juice (optional)
Coat the pork roast with the ADOBO SEASONING and roast for about
20 minutes per pound or until the internal temperature reaches at
least 140° but no more than 150°. Allow the roast to rest and cool
for about 15 minutes. Cut the roast into bite size cubes. Trim excess
fat if necessary. While the pork is roasting prepare the sauce. Soak
two GUAJILLO peppers in water until soft, about 20 minutes. Rub the
peppers between your fingers to remove the stems and seeds. Finely
mince the peppers and set aside. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium
heat. Stir in the chili powder, spices, salt, and flour. Gradually whisk in
2 cups of water. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Add the GUAJILLO
pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes
stirring occasionally. Add pork and simmer covered for at least 30
minutes or up to 2 hours stirring occasionally. If you are using pork
loin, the meat will be tender immediately. The pork shoulder will
require the longer cooking time but it could be ready after an hour of
simmering. If desired, gently mash the pork with a potato masher to
shred the meat a bit. Stir in the lime juice just before serving. Serve
with tortillas and/or Spanish rice.

Family Style Tacos
A favorite family meal–everyone loves tacos. If
the kids are small, start with REGULAR TACO
SEASONING–it’s great. If the family has moved
toward enjoying spicier meals, use our new BOLD
TACO SEASONING.
1 lb. ground beef - we like chuck - not
too fatty not so lean it gets dry
4 TB. TACO SEASONING, REGULAR or
BOLD
3/4
Cup water
8 crispy corn taco shells
2 Cups shredded lettuce (1/2 a small
head)
1 Cup diced tomato (2 medium)
1 Cup shredded cheese (your favorite)
1/2
Cup minced onion (1 small)
salsa and any other toppings you might
want
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add ground beef, cook for about 5 minutes
until nice and browned, breaking it up into
chunks and turning it to brown all sides.
Shake on the TACO SEASONING, cook,
stirring, about 2 minutes. Add water, stir to
combine, reduce heat to medium and cook 810 minutes until most of the water has cooked
away and the meat is deliciously saucy. For
the final 3-5 minutes of cooking time, place
the taco shells in a preheated 350° oven until
they are golden brown. If you prefer chunks
of meat in the taco sauce, don’t stir the beef
too much while cooking, if you like it very
fine, stir the meat a lot while cooking. Spoon
the meat into the shells and serve with individual bowls of all the toppings on the table,
so everyone can make their own perfect taco.
Makes 8 tacos. Prep. time: 5 minutes. Cooking
time: 15 minutes
Quick & Tasty Chicken Tacos
Try our new seasoning to make fabulous chicken
tacos in a snap. Serve them in crispy corn shells
with traditional toppings, simply wrapped in soft
flour tortillas, or take the extra step of quickly
browning rolled up chicken tacos with shredded
Chihuahua cheese–extra delicious, specially topped
with salsa.
1 lb. boneless/skinless chicken breast (2-3
pieces)
8-12 soft flour tortillas
1 Cup shredded cheese (we like soft white
Mexican Chihuahua cheese)
2-3 TB. CHICKEN TACO SEASONING
1/2
Cup water
2-4 TB. corn oil
1 TB. fresh lime juice (juice of 1/2 lime), or
2 tsp. regular white vinegar–though lime
juice is best
Heat 2 TB. corn oil in a large pan. Slice chicken breast
into bite-sized pieces. Add to the hot pan, cook,
stirring regularly, 8 minutes, until chicken liquid
cooks away and chicken browns. Add CHICKEN
TACO SEASONING, cook, stirring, 2 minutes.
Add lime juice, stir to dislodge brown bits from
pan, then add 1/2 Cup water, cover, reduce heat
to low, simmer 10 minutes until liquid is mostly
absorbed and chicken is tender. Serve with warm
flour tortillas, shredded cheese and the toppings
of your choice.
To fry the tortillas, heat 1 TB. corn oil in a large
skillet over medium-high heat. Fill 3 tortillas with
chicken and top with cheese–don’t use too much.
Roll pretty tightly, and place in the hot pan fold side
down. Cook a mere 30 seconds, then flip to the other
side, and cook 15-30 seconds on each remaining
side. Place in a warm oven and repeat the process
until you’ve done all the tortillas, adding extra oil,
just a bit at a time, as needed. Adjust the heat up or
down a bit as needed to keep the tacos browning
quickly without getting too dark.
Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes (plus 5
minutes to do the extra browning step if desired)
Yield: 8-12 chicken tacos
Easy Salsa
Now’s the time to start making salsa. Avocados look
great, and tomatoes get better every day.
Make this simple salsa all Summer long it’s as perfect on grilled chicken, chops or fish,
as it is with chips.
2 avocados
4 large red ripe tomatoes
1 red onion
2 limes - juice of
2 tsp. CILANTRO FLAKES
1
/2 tsp. GROUND CUMIN
1
/4 tsp. CHIPOTLE or CAYENNE PEPPER
1 TB. water
1 tsp. KOSHER FLAKE SALT
Play with the spice levels to suit your taste.
All the ingredients are key -leave one out and
it just won’t be the same. If your avocados are
just a hair underripe, they’ll cube more nicely for
a chunky salsa, if they are totally ripe, just mash
them with a hand masher for a more
guacamole style dip. Mince the onion and
tomato up fairly fine. Cover the spice with
the water, let stand a few minutes. Combine
the avocado, tomatoes and onion with the spice
paste and lime juice, stir to coat.
Serve with chips.
Yield: 1 bowl salsa. prep. time: 10 minutes.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
It’s that time of year again.
There’s nothing nicer than
opening up a brown bag lunch
to find a really nice
chocolate chip muffin
lovingly made by your mother.
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Wonderfully easy and a real treat for lunch. With
a delicious topping of melty chocolate chips, it
doesn’t even need frosting. The invisible addition
of zucchini keeps the cake very moist, and the
kids will never suspect they are getting a serving
of vegetables. We used zucchini that were on the
small side, if your zucchini are large and mature,
cut away and discard the seeds before grating.

Raspberry Enlightenment
Our Creative Cook has been working for a
while now to come up with something to use in
rotation with balsamic vinegar to add tartness,
sweetness and that dash of flavor that so many
of today’s quick cooked meals want. Raspberry
Enlightenment helps. Don’t think of it as a way
to make things taste like raspberry, think of it as
a background flavor that makes everything taste
better, especially vegetables, pasta, salads and
quickly cooked meats. Give it a try. It is designed
to help you explore your own creativity.
Ingredients: raspberries, sugar, water, tapioca
starch, spices, citric acid.

sautéed in 1-2 TB. butter or olive oil (toss over

375˚ until brown (8-15 minutes), turning twice

Wasabi
New Item, 3 choices.
Funnily enough, the wasabi we’ve all been eating
in Japanese restaurants for many years isn’t
actually made of only ground up wasabi root. It is
a combination of ingredients which combine to
give the bright heat and zesty flavor we all know
and love mixed with soy sauce and served with
sushi.
Pure Wasabi root is extremely expensive and a
small jar doesn’t really make very much.
As far as the flavor difference, it is kind of like
turtles. When you’ve been going to the candy
store all your life eating turtles, luscious chocolate
covered caramel and pecan creations, and then
you get told no, real turtles are at the pet store
-so you go there and find out they are crunchy
reptiles, even though they truly are the “real”
turtle, you’ll probably, in the long run,
end up back at the candy store.

For Starters
The Pepper Crate
An excellent wedding present, or a wonderful gift for
someone special. Two pepper mills–the larger Zassenhaus
#4 Pepper mill filled with robust black Tellicherry
peppercorns from India and the Zassenhaus #1
Pepper mill, which we've left empty, so the
recipient of this wonderful gift can fill
it with one of the fragrant varieties of
peppercorns provided in the attractive
wooden crate. We've included all the
best pepper the world has to offer: 1 Cup
Tellicherry Peppercorns, 1 Cup White Peppercorns
from Borneo, half-Cup jars Green Peppercorns and
Mignonette Pepper (a mix of coarse cracked Black
Pepper, White Pepper and Coriander). Rounding out the
selection is a large 1 cup jar of our most popular peppercorn
mix–the Four Peppercorn blend. Combining Black, White and Green
Peppercorns gives the fullest range of pepper flavor possible, and the added
touch of fragrant, pretty pink peppercorns is a colorful extra bonus. Everyone
loves pepper, it's the most used spice in America. There is no way to go wrong with this high quality gift.
Now packed in a handsome wooden Penzeys crate with swing-top lid.

Sweet Basil and green peppercorn, flavorful and easy
for sprinkling on freshly cooked pasta, garlic bread,

Street Rib Rub is a Southern style BBQ rub that is great
for succulent pork ribs and grilled chicken, whether
rubbed on dry or mixed with tomato sauce. Fox Point

shallots, one of our best blends for fish, also great for
poultry, vegetables, eggs, dip and dressing.

The Spicy Wedding
The story
of the
Spicy Wedding
In olden times,
spices were often
given as good luck
charms to bridal
couples. We’ve
continued this
tradition, because
hey, it can’t hurt.
Whole
Nutmeg
An old European
belief is that as long as
there is a whole, sound
nutmeg in the kitchen,
the marriage will also
be sound. Many whole
nutmegs will be grated
and used throughout the
marriage, but one
should always be
left in the kitchen whole.
Rosemary Leaves
Rosemary was believed to improve the
memory in the ancient Greek studies of
mnemonics. Around the Middle Ages,
certainly by the time of Shakespeare,
rosemary became the herb of lovers. It
embodies the remembrance of
all that is good about
love through the
many years of
marriage.
Star Anise
Star anise has a wonderful sweet,
licorice flavor. The whole stars
are very beautiful, but also very
rare. Most stars are broken during
processing. A beautiful, manypointed whole anise star has long been given
as a keepsake to the bridal couple in the parts
of China where the anise trees grow. It signifies
both the spiritual unity of the many points of
the couple coming together as one, and the
tenaciousness of the rare and beautiful star
that stays whole and perfect.
Spicy Wedding
Deluxe Spicy Wedding
An excellent, moderately priced wedding gift that
the bridal couple will love. Eight top-selling, very
popular spices and seasonings, along with three
wedding charms. A great combination for setting
up a kitchen, nice for new cooks and for those
experienced enough to appreciate great spices. The
vibrantly colored spices, nestled in bay leaves and
cinnamon sticks, make this gift stand out.
Of all our gift boxes, this one wins the most praise. It
is easy to please the most demanding bridal couple
with this gift. A beautiful, sturdy wooden pepper mill,
peppercorns, and four versatile seasoning blends
combine to form a gift that will enhance the kitchen
of any home. With the unique wedding charms, the
result is a truly enjoyable wedding gift that will not
be duplicated.
Contains: Pasta Sprinkle, Creamy Peppercorn, Cajun
Seasoning, Medium Hot Chili Powder, Hungarian Sweet
Paprika, Ground China Cinnamon, Jerk Chicken Seasoning
and English Prime Rib Rub
Contains: Zassenhaus #1 Pepper mill, Tellicherry
Peppercorns, Four Peppercorn Blend, Garden Salad

Spicy Wedding Shower
Four good, easy-to-use mixes, along with spices traditionally given as wedding charms. The vibrantly colored
blends, nestled in bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, and whole nutmeg, make this gift stand out at any group
gift-opening, and won’t be duplicated. Cajun Seasoning makes a great steak dinner for two or is perfect for a
cookout; English Prime Rib Rub is for all cuts of beef--burgers too, and is the perfect seasoning in Bloody Marys
for brunch; Lemon-Pepper Seasoning makes easy, great-tasting fish or chicken; and Garden Salad Seasoning can
