Along with bill and other junk, today's mail included an mail order catalog of seasonings! The company is Penzey's Spices. Anyone heard of them or experienced them? The have detailed description of many spices (growing, harvesting, preparing, etc). Prices seem reasonable. [p]Smokey

    Smokey, I seem to remember about a month ago, Nature Boy ordered a caravan-load of spices from these folks. If you don't see him chime in with an opinion soon, catch him off-line for an honest up-to-date assessment of their product, if you are considering an order.[p]

    Smokey, I got a bag of Annato Seeds. You slow saute them in vegatable, olive, or sesame oil for about 1/2 hour. Strain the seeds out and store the oil as you would any oil. It makes a dark red colored oil. About the color of a red-velvet cake. I use it to rub whole chickens after brining and drying them. It is highly staining so be careful around clothing. It is used for the natural red-yellow color and pungent flavor for rice and seafood dishes. It makes a great oil with a subtle pungent flavor. and 8 oz. package is a lifetime supply. I also got a few other things like juniper berries, lemon grass, and ground Thailand Galangal. It's a relative of ginger. Very good..

    I started with a few of the mixed spices (Adabo seasoning, Bouquet Garni,Bavarian Seasoning and Galena Street Rub). I can wait for them. If its good stuff, I'll be ordering more! The juniper berries and lemon grass sound really good (... is it to late to fire something up now ... just dreaming).

    The juniper berries are a key ingredient to Cat's baby back ribs.

    JimW, don't tell her,, but that's the only reason I ordered the berries. I believe in her.
