O
ur years of
selling spices have taught us that
cooking is not a one size fits all
world: far from it. We’ve learned
the true beauty of cooking lies in
the incredible diversity of the
people who cook, and in the
incredible variety of the food they
cook. Those years have also taught
us for all of our differences, for the
tremendous variety of what we
cook, people who cook have
something in common. They care
enough to make the lives of those
around them better. The research
shows that people who share
dinner together at the kitchen
table go on to share a brighter
future. A brighter future made
possible by people with the spirit
to build it one meal at a time. It is
this spirit we celebrate, this spirit
we hope to spread, this spirit that
makes all who cook ONE. Through
our pages we hope to share the
greater family of human kindness
that we’ve found all cooks belong
to. Come along and join us.
Be ONE.
Twenty five years … to be honest I don’t know for sure what to say.
Seems like not just yesterday, but earlier this morning that I was the
only employee spending most of my days just pretty much listening
to myself breathing. For so long it seemed like the movie Groundhog
Day, waking up to repeat the same day over and over with nothing
ever changing.
But then one day you wake up to a bunch of people anxiously
awaiting your page three writing on the 25th anniversary because
today is the day the files are due at the printer. And you are not the
only employee any more, far from it. Now there are hundreds of really
amazing wonderful people who get up in the morning and leave
their homes to come work at Penzeys.
When I started, as much as my plan was to open a store right away,
reality was that being a mail order business was all I could really
afford or even handle. I remember those early years of walking to the
post office to get the mail hoping for fourteen orders but setting myself up to not be disappointed if the P.O. box only held four. Today we
have better than fifty stores across the country and even on the days
of the worst snow storms we still get thousands of people driving out
of their way to take home our spices and seasonings. I’m not too sure
how this has happened, but I know there are a lot of people, employees and customers alike, who I am in debt to for making Penzeys
Spices what it is today. Thank you.
With this issue kicking off the year of our 25th anniversary we
are featuring a nice bunch of birthday themed recipes and stories
including some great birthday cakes. I like the birthday theme not
just because this is Penzeys Spices 25th birthday. Over these past 25
years I’ve come to appreciate that cooking really is at its most magical when it is given as a gift, and there is nothing more healing in this
world than giving someone their favorite meal cooked their favorite
way on their very special day.
Happy Birthday everyone,

Arizona Dreaming
How much should I buy?
A good guideline is to buy a one
year’s supply of herbs or ground spices,
and a one to two year supply of whole
spices. The government’s guideline for
freshness dating is four years for whole
spices and two years for ground. Some
people say six months is the longest
spices should be stored, but most spices
are harvested only once a year, so it does
not make sense to discard them every six
months. On the other hand, two years
is too long to store finely powdered
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.
How should I store them?
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, as well as sesame
seed and poppy seed) 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 only
problem with spices being stored in the
fridge is that they tend to be used less (out
of sight, out of mind). So we recommend
keeping smaller quantities of spices out
in the cooking area and larger backup
supplies in the refrigerator or freezer.
See spice Index on page 61

(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

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. Hand-mixed from: crushed brown
mustard, rosemary, garlic, thyme, bay leaf and sage.

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
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).

1вЃ„4 Cup oil or bacon fat
Dressing:
1вЃ„2 Cup chopped celery
1вЃ„4 Cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1 pan of cornbread—baked, cooled and
crumbled (see recipe below)
1 egg
1 16-oz. can creamed corn
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
1вЃ„2 tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER

Remove the foil, sprinkle with extra CAYENNE PEPPER if
desired and bake for another 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400В°. In a medium bowl, combine the

blend thoroughly. Add the eggs, milk and oil and mix
until smooth. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish or
a greased 12-inch cast iron skillet. Bake at 400В° for 30
minutes. If using for stuffing, let dry overnight.

1-11вЃ„2 lbs. small potatoes, unpeeled

1-2 TB. olive oil
Sauce:
1 fresh poblano pepper, seeded
and chopped (or another mild to
medium green chili pepper)
1вЃ„2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, loosely
packed
1 Cup baby spinach leaves, loosely
packed
3 garlic cloves (3вЃ„4 tsp. PENZEYS

1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
1вЃ„2 tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND
PEPPER
1вЃ„4-1вЃ„2 Cup butter (1вЃ„2 to 1 stick), melted
Steam or boil the potatoes until fork tender.
The time required will vary based on the
size of the potatoes. 8-10 minutes is about
right for quite small potatoes. While the
potatoes cook, combine all of the sauce
ingredients and puree in a blender or food
processor. Using the full stick of butter is
very delicious, but a half stick is very tasty
as well if you are trying to cut back! When
the potatoes are steamed, place them in a
large skillet with the olive oil and heat over
medium heat. Brown the potatoes evenly.
Remove from the heat and place in a serving
bowl. Add the sauce, stir to coat, and serve
immediately.

and American cooking. French basil has a bit of anise flavor many people enjoy.

Ancho Chili Peppers
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 jalapeГ±o) 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.
Large, juicy, dark purple New Mexican pods. Ancho
chili peppers are the most commonly used pepper in
Mexico and are the backbone of dishes such as the
traditional red chili and tamales. Chop into В№/4" chunks
and add to chili, mole sauce, stews, beans and rice, or
cover in water for a few hours to rehydrate, slice open,
stuff and cook. To make a flavorful ancho chili oil:
Chop 3 peppers into 1" chunks and simmer in 3 cups
good corn oil, 20 minutes. Let cool, strain (use pepper
pieces in another recipe) and store in an airtight
container.

Cardamom
Ground Dutch Caraway Seed
Cardamom is a pod consisting of an outer shell with
little flavor and tiny inner seeds with intense flavor.
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). In India, where both green and black
cardamom are used, it is an important ingredient in
meat and vegetable dishes. In Northern Europe, white
cardamom is used to season baked goods such as
Christmas stollen, cakes, cookies, muffins and buns.
Black cardamom has a unique smoky flavor and has
developed its own following over the years.

Chili Powder
There is a difference between chili pepper
and chili powder. Chili pepper consists solely
of chili pods which have been dried, then
powdered. Chili powder is a blend, of which
ground chili pepper is used as a base (usually
80% of total volume), with the addition of
spices such as cumin and Mexican oregano.
For chili, start with 1 TB. (some people will
use as much as 3 TB.) per quart.
Regular Chili Powder
Rich flavor, deep color, very little heat. This blend is the
traditional backbone of many Mexican dishes, from
burritos to tamales. Great for family-style chili, use 1-3
TB. per quart. Serve with a shaker jar of crushed hot
peppers on the side for those who like heat. Handmixed from: Ancho chili pepper, cumin, garlic, Mexican

Medium Hot Chili Powder
Medium Hot Chili Powder is our most popular chili
powder; it has the perfect heat level plus rich flavor–a
pleasing bite that's not too hot. Add 1-2 TB. Medium
Chili Powder to each quart of chili for great flavor. Add
the spices while browning the meat for even richer
flavor. Chili Powder is also nice as a salt-free seasoning.
Make a paste by mixing 1 TB. Chili Powder with 1 TB.

Hot Chili Powder
For people who really like hot food. Use the full
amount called for (1-3 TB. per quart). If less is used, the
chili will be hot but will lack the depth of flavor the
ancho peppers provide. This is the best powder for
those who like their chili hot and flavorful. Hand-mixed
from: Ancho chili pepper, red pepper, cumin, crushed red
pepper, garlic and Mexican oregano.

more sparingly to season smaller, quicker cooking cuts.
Use half as much ground celery as whole celery.

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 has good strong
flavor. Cilantro is the leaf of the coriander plant. Cilantro is
used heavily in most of the world where its unique flavor
seasons salads, tacos, curries, guacamole, soups and
stews. Dehydrated, broken leaf. From California.
Cocoa Powder
We carry two types of the highest quality
cocoa that are almost twice as rich as the
grocery store varieties: Natural High Fat
Cocoa is strong, dark and bittersweet–
perfect for all baking; Dutch High Fat
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
High Fat 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.
Natural High Fat Cocoa Powder
Strong, dark chocolate flavor—our top choice. The
best cocoa for bringing life to your brownies, cakes

Cloves
Hot Chocolate Mix with
a Hint of Mint
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.

Vietnamese Cinnamon—Extra Fancy
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 a third, but it is perfect used full strength in any recipe where cinnamon is
the main, delicious flavor. Ground, from Vietnam.

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 China cinnamon are the sweetest
and strongest varieties, with Korintje
cinnamon 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 governmentprotected 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. Our
very sweet and strong Vietnamese
cinnamon comes from the remote
north and west regions of Vietnam. The
strength of the flavor of spices depends
upon the essential oil content­—the
higher the level, the stronger the flavor.
When orders for cinnamon come in,
the large sticks are cracked into slightly
smaller pieces and packed into burlap
bags for shipment.
The second type of cinnamon,
Ceylon, or "true" cinnamon, has a much
different flavor. It is less sweet, with a
more complex, citrus flavor. The special
flavor of English and Mexican sweets
comes from Ceylon cinnamon. We like to
recommend Ceylon Cinnamon for baking
with fruit—especially in apple pie.

Why-Plant-Yellow-Beets-In-Your-Garden Cake
Priscilla Weaver (story on pg. 21) got creative when she got yellow beets in her farm share box. She came up with this twist on carrot cake and enjoyed it so much she
now plants yellow beets in her own garden. If you can’t find yellow/gold beets, use the same amount of the sweetest carrots.
1 tsp. CINNAMON (Priscilla likes VIETNAMESE)
1вЃ„2 tsp. GROUND NUTMEG
1вЃ„4 tsp. GROUND FENNEL
1вЃ„8 tsp. GROUND CLOVES
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
11вЃ„4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
23вЃ„4 Cups unbleached flour
3 large eggs
1 egg white
1 Cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 Cup sugar
1вЃ„2 Cup vegetable oil
3 Cups peeled and grated yellow beets (about 4 medium beets)
1 TB. orange zest (or 1 tsp. MINCED ORANGE PEEL rehydrated in
1 TB. water)
3вЃ„4 Cup finely chopped walnuts
Cream Cheese Frosting (optional):
8 oz. low fat cream cheese (NeufchГўtel), room temperature
4 oz. regular cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
2 Cups powdered sugar, sifted
Preheat oven to 350В°. Grease or spray two 8-9 inch round cake pans with
vegetable oil spray, line the bottoms with parchment or waxed paper and
set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients. In a separate mixing
bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed (stand mixers will overbeat
this cake), beat together the eggs, egg white and sugars until creamy and
somewhat thickened. Add the oil in a stream until completely incorporated.
Sprinkle half of the dry ingredients over the mixture and fold in gently.
Repeat with the remaining dry ingredients. Finally, fold in the beets, orange
zest and walnuts.
Divide the batter between the cake pans, smoothing the tops. Bake at 350В°
for 20 minutes and then rotate the pans for even baking. Bake for 10-20
more minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost
clean, with only dry crumbs sticking. Smaller cake pans take a bit longer
than larger ones. Cool for 10 minutes in the pans and then remove the cakes
by turning the pans out over a rack. Remove the parchment paper. Flip the
cakes and continue to cool for at least 2 hours before frosting.
For the frosting: Beat together the cream cheeses and VANILLA. Gradually
add the powdered sugar and mix until creamy. The longer you mix, the
thinner the frosting, so decide ahead of time how thick you want your
frosting.

Anne MacGregor
M
y mom is now 89 and she
can’t stand long enough to do the
extensive cooking she once did,” says
Anne MacGregor of Alpine, Arizona.
“For the past few years when I’ve
visited her she gives me a long list of
what she’d like me to cook and bake
for her. I spend a week or more
grocery shopping, cooking and
freezing meals for her.
“Her favorites are old-fashioned
cream-based soups and classics such
as meat loaf, macaroni and cheese,
lamb stew and goulash. We talk
frequently on the phone and she
likes to hear about my latest cooking
projects. She might mention how
much she enjoyed one of her frozen
soups or dinners, or she’ll let me
know if it needed more salt!
“One time she tasted her
Hungarian goulash and asked me
�Did you use the Penzeys paprika?’
With some homemade meals
available, her appetite, health and
spirit are improved and that’s reward
enough.”
Anne’s mother used to make a
Birthday Spice Cake with butter icing
that is still Anne’s favorite birthday
cake. “Now that I live in Arizona I
bake this cake for myself on May 5th,
my birthday. Some people think it’s
sad that I have to bake my own cake,
but they don’t understand how much
I enjoy it each year. When I take that
first bite I remember how good it is
and think of all the previous years
that my mom baked it for me.”
Being born a generation apart
didn’t prevent Anne, 59, and
husband Donald, 81, from making a
life connection. “What brought us
together was our mutual love of the
outdoors,” says Anne, the menu
planner and camp cook on hiking
and backpacking expeditions. “When
I first met him he was the type who
could open a can of beef stew or
canned peas and eat them right out
of the can. It took some convincing
to get him to bring a stove on a
camping trip.
“I love to cook for two reasons.
One is my appreciation for good
tasting food. I like to explore the
unusual foods of other countries and
be surprised by different ingredient
and spice combinations. Some
examples are using red chili paste in
a spice cake and unsweetened
chocolate in a Spanish beef stew.
When they taste great, I’m amazed.
“Secondly, I like to share good
tasting food with others. I love to
hear the yums and see the smiles. It’s
gift giving that continues throughout
the meal and afterwards.”
Birthday Spice Cake
Anne shares, “My birthday cake since the 1960s.”
1 Cup cut-up pitted prunes
2 Cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
1 TB. baking soda
1вЃ„2 tsp. baking powder
11вЃ„2 tsp. CINNAMON (Anne likes VIETNAMESE)
1 tsp. GROUND NUTMEG
1 tsp. GROUND ALLSPICE
1вЃ„2 Cup vegetable shortening
11вЃ„2 Cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 Cup sour cream
Butter Icing:
1 stick (1вЃ„2 Cup) plus 2 TB. butter, room
temperature
5 Cups sifted powdered sugar
5 TB. + cream or milk
pinch salt (omit if using salted butter)
21вЃ„2 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Preheat oven to 350В°. Grease and flour two or
three 8-inch round cake pans. Use a waxed paper
round in the bottom of each pan. Set aside. If
the prunes are dry, place the prunes in a small
saucepan and cover with water. Cook over
medium-low heat until the prunes plump up.
Let cool, drain off any liquid and then chop or
cut with kitchen shears. Many packed prunes are
now quite moist and plump and the pre-cooking
can be eliminated. Set aside chopped prunes.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour,
salt, baking soda, baking powder and SPICES. In
a separate bowl, beat the shortening and sugar
together until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time,
beating after each addition. Reduce the mixer
speed to slow and add the prunes. Alternate
adding the flour mixture with the sour cream,
beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
Beat on slow speed after each addition until
well mixed. Divide the batter equally among the
cake pans and bake at 350В° for 25 minutes for 3
pans, 30-35 minutes for 2 pans. Let the cake cool
completely before icing.
For the icing: With an electric mixer, cream the
butter until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gradually add
most of the powdered sugar. Add enough cream/
milk to make the icing a spreadable consistency.
Add the salt and VANILLA. Add more sugar if
it needs to be stiffer and more cream/milk if it
needs to be thinner. When the cake is cool, frost
the top of one layer, carefully place the second
layer on top and frost the top and sides.
Above left, Anne is an avid
backpacker who enjoys nature,
hiking and a good campfire meal.
Right, Anne (standing) and her
sister helped celebrate their little
brother’s first birthday cake back
in 1955.

gives a great burst of flavor wherever salt is called for.

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. Because we do not use any anti-caking agents in this (or any other) blend, it
tends to clump somewhat. To keep it free-flowing, store in the refrigerator.

Baltistan is an ancient region of northernmost Pakistan
with influences from Persia, Tibet and China. Balti

breads. The deliciously spicy but not too hot flavor of
Balti makes it a great choice for chicken, pork or beef.

cardamom, clove, fennel, fenugreek, charnushka, ajwain,

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 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.

Rogan Josh Seasoning
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 В№/2 cup yogurt. Cook
1-2 hrs. over low heat till lamb is tender and sauce
thick. Hand-mixed from: paprika, garlic, ginger, cumin,
coriander, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom,
cloves, saffron.

SatГ© Seasoning
Of all the regional dishes of Indonesia, satГ© 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. SatГ©
makes a great appetizer or a wonderful meal with plain
rice or Nasi Goreng (fried rice). Also perfect for Ayam
Goreng (fried chicken). SatГ© Seasoning is great for light
meals such as boneless/skinless chicken and fish fillets.
Sprinkle on heavily, 2-3 tsp. per lb. Hand-mixed from:
salt, brown sugar, garlic, white onion, coriander, shallots,
ginger, turmeric, paprika, Ancho pepper, galangal,

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 1В№/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,
jalapeГ±o pepper, cardamom, turmeric, black pepper,
cloves.

Priscilla Weaver
Priscilla finds this recipe a “great way to use the first
dark greens from early spring planting.”
For the first time in my adult life
I have time to cook and explore new
tastes and impromptu
combinations,” says Priscilla Weaver
from her farm near Jacksonville,
Oregon. “And I love doing it!
“Being 23 miles from the
supermarket has forced me to take
the adventurous route when
cooking. I like substituting
ingredients when I don’t happen to
have an ingredient or spice in the
house. It’s both fun and a great way
to learn what works and what
doesn’t.
“My husband Steve and I both had
rewarding careers in Chicago and
loved the city with all it had to offer,
but yearned for a less hectic life.
Steve had intended to enjoy flower
gardening and I planned a return to
serious piano study. That’s how we
began our lives on the farm.
“A few months later we saw what
looked like miniature sheep with
graceful, long curling horns in a
field and decided on a whim to get
four of them. Later when Steve
learned that our Soay sheep also had
a fascinating genetic history (Steve is
Steve enjoys a quiet moment with TJ, Chuy and
Isaac, their livestock guardian dogs whose job
it is to keep the flock safe from predators
during the night.
a geneticist) our plans for a quiet
puttering retirement went right out
the window, and thank goodness for
that.
“Saltmarsh Ranch, which bears the
name of the pioneering family who
homesteaded here for nearly 100
years, straddles the Little Applegate
River in a valley of the Siskiyou
Mountains of Southern Oregon.
Today we share the farm with our
flock of over a hundred Soay sheep,
thought to be the oldest breed of
sheep in the world.
“We raise these sheep because
they are an excellent way to restore
and maintain previously neglected
pastures and we want to help
conserve them. Each spring we sell
our lambs to breeders who share our
commitment to conservation
breeding and who are as captivated
by these little creatures as we are.”

Garlic
It is very easy to use granulated garlic, just sprinkle on
meat, fish, poultry, or vegetables. Use about В№/2 tsp. per
lb. To rehydrate: use В№/2 tsp. granulated garlic in 1 tsp.
water to equal 2 fresh cloves of garlic. For minced
garlic, use В№/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).

and marinate for at least a few hours. Remove
the chicken from the marinade and thread onto
skewers with bell peppers and mushrooms if
desired. Grill or broil over medium heat, about
5-7 minutes per side. The marinade will blacken
if the heat is high, because of the sugar in it,
but it will still taste great!

Marjoram
Marjoram is one of the most popular herbs in 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. From Egypt.

chocolates. Both are a fine addition to tea.

Black Peppercorns
Whole Special Extra BoldВ®
Indian Black 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.
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 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.
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.
Special Extra BoldВ® Indian Black Peppercorns are the
world’s best—only ten pounds out of every ton of
pepper makes the special grade. If you are new to
good pepper, you might want to stick with the
regular Tellicherry, as they are a better deal, but if you
really enjoy pepper you will appreciate the
difference. Great on everything, especially beef,
chicken, chops, fish, salads, vegetables, soups, and
omelets.

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, 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.

Penzeys spices | spring
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. 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.
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.

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.

The ONLY peppermills worthy of
the World’s Best Peppercorns!
We designed our peppermills to be fully adjustable—
from shaker grind to coarse. To fill the peppermill and
adjust the grind, unscrew the nut on top of the mill, lift
off the wood cap, 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. Our salt shakers have
larger holes in the top and are designed to be used with
coarse style flake salt. Fine table salts may pour too
quickly out of the top.

Pepper Blends
Special Grinds
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 and European 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.
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.
European Style Peppercorns
Half and half blend of Tellicherry black
peppercorns and Sarawak white peppercorns. In
Northern Europe, white and black pepper enjoy
equal popularity. The familiar, robust black pepper
flavor combined with the deep, winey, complex
white pepper, is perfect ground on potato or
noodle dishes. Great on pork roast and hearty beef
or chicken stew with red wine and root vegetables.

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,

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.

"Isn't it great to find something new to try
after so many years of cooking!"
Martie Kyde
I
love feeding people and I truly
enjoy cooking,” says Martie Kyde of
Ottsville, Pennsylvania.
“Even after more than fifty years
of cooking I tend to experiment just
to keep things interesting in the
kitchen. I can’t imagine anything
without spices.
“I was never really turned on to
cooking until I married. As a young
woman living across the country
from my family I had to learn fast.
My first task was making wellbalanced and interesting meals on
the pay of an Army private, which
was not an easy job, but I could read
and soon recipes and spices became
my friends.
“My cooking these days is a lot
different from the days when we
were young, poor and four around
the table. With only two of us we try
many different things and I’ll try
anything that sounds good.
“I have always been interested in
the wild outdoors. I am very active in
our county’s land preservation
commission and have worked very
hard to transform our land. I’m very
proud of my accomplishments.”
Martie’s forest of oaks, walnut,
maples and pines is the perfect
setting for many of the parties Martie
and her husband Neil host.
“It doesn’t take much of an excuse
to throw a party. We have had first
strawberries of the season parties and
frog watch parties out at our pond in
springtime. We have six species of
frogs in our pond and it’s just
magical to sit out there in the dark as
the frogs begin to call.
“Another fun party was our safari
party. All the guests were given a
sheet of �wild animals’ to track down
in our woods. Mostly bugs to bring
back such as a �green carnivore’ or
otherwise known as a praying mantis.
“Star-related decor was the theme
for our Perseids Meteor Shower
party. After dark we all trooped up to
a neighbor’s cut field on a hilltop so
we could see the entire sky. Each of
us told a myth or story about a star or
constellation.
“We live at The Tulgey Wood, our
30 acres named after the enchanted
forest from Alice in Wonderland. The
theme of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
was “Merry Un-Birthday to You.”
Perfect when it seems we need a
party. Sometimes life seems a bit
grim and you just need to happy
things up.
“At our parties I love introducing
people to other people whom I think
will like each other. I am proud to
say that some of the strangers I have
introduced have become friends.
“Many of our parties feature the
�Great White’ Pound Cake (pg. 37).
Appropriately named after the Great
White shark, it has been my family’s
favorite cake for more than 50 years.
It’s easy to throw together, it’s big, it’s
devoured quickly and boy is it good!”
Kaleidoscopic Turkey Loaf
This basic recipe from Martie is very versatile and very
forgiving. Simply use what appeals to your family and
you can’t miss.

lb. ground turkey
Cups finely chopped vegetables—a mix
of any of the following according to
season (be careful not to add more than 2 Cups or it is hard for the meat loaf to
stick together and stay a loaf!): onions
(always); red, yellow or orange
bell peppers; carrots; squash; parsnips;
apples; celery; cranberries; nuts; fresh
chives; mushrooms; corn, fresh from the
cob or frozen; peas, fresh or frozen; capers
large egg, or 1вЃ„4 Cup cream or 1вЃ„4 Cup
catsup to bind
tsp. salt
tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER,
to taste
TB. fresh herbs (sage, basil, oregano or
marjoram) or 2 tsp. dried
TB. MURAL OF FLAVOR, TUSCAN SUNSET or
ARIZONA DREAMING
Cup panko or regular bread crumbs,
preferably whole wheat
TB. butter
Preheat oven to 350В°. In a large bowl, combine
the turkey, your choice of chopped ingredients,
egg, salt, PEPPER, herbs and SEASONING. Mix until
thoroughly combined. Pat into a standard loaf pan.
In a small frying pan, melt the butter. Add the bread
crumbs and stir to coat with butter. Spread over the
loaf. Or, spread the bread crumbs over the loaf and
dot with butter. Bake at 350В° for 45-50 minutes.
Notes from Martie: “The wonderful thing about
this family favorite is that it can be varied with
the season—green onions, celery, mushrooms
and fresh green peas for spring; peppers, carrots,
parsnips or squash and onions for winter; and
apples, cranberries, nuts and celery for fall. Or what
have you! It can also be Chinese-influenced with
soy sauce and chopped water chestnuts, CHINESE
FIVE SPICE and topping with Chinese noodles;
or it can have an Indian flavor by using GINGER,
TURMERIC, CURRY POWDER and CINNAMON;
Italian with chopped tomatoes, catsup, OREGANO
and BASIL and a little olive oil if extra moisture is
needed.”

Love your products. —Lucy W.
It was with many thanks that
I opened the latest catalogue. I
have been told by my doctor to cut
calories and salt. Hurrah for your
nutritional information for each
recipe and for all of the salt free
and low salt recipes! We love your
spices and all of the great cooks
who share their use.
—Sandra S.
Dear Sir/Madam:
I just had to write in and say how
much my family enjoyed the NorthAfrican Inspired Salmon Salad in
the Winter 2011 catalog (pg. 45).
We just decided (as in today!)
to work on lowering our sodium
intake, so I halved the amount of
salt called for in the recipe. It was
still absolutely delicious and will be
on our menu often! The best part
is I’m guessing I can halve the salt
again and not lose any of the flavor.
Thanks for always printing wonderful meal ideas.
Best Regards, —Jennifer D.
P.S. Up until tonight Sunny Paris
was the go-to seasoning for our
salmon. I may have to start making
them both at the same time since
it’s a tough call between the two!

Penzeys spices | SPRING
I believe the Winter 2011 catalog
that I just received is the best one
I have received in the more than
2 years I have been on your mailing list. The recipes sound terrific
and, since I am sodium-restricted,
I am particularly happy about the
number of recipes that will work
for me (I can always adjust ingredients, I know, but it’s nice when they
don’t require adjustments!). All the
catalogs have been good, but this
one is GREAT.
I just recently received your catalog and I read through every story,
every recipe, most of the descriptions on the spices (I will come
back to the rest), and was just left
with a world of new ideas! I discovered there is a Penzeys in Maplewood, Missouri, and went there
today and purchased 12 different
spices for recipes in your catalog. I
can’t wait to try them out! Thanks
for a much needed, dead of winter,
—Linda A.
pick me up!! Since Penzeys opened a store
in Detroit, my collection of spices
has outgrown my previous spice
shelves. So, when I had to have
some shelving rebuilt in my kitchen, I asked the carpenter to build
me a new spice rack to accommodate the ever-growing collection.
The fish sides (a prevalent theme
in the kitchen) are mine from my
—Gary E.
studio. Bill’s column and comments are
(as always) well written and thought
provoking. I particularly liked his
thoughts in the catalog that introduced us to Arizona Dreaming.
I wrote to your company one
other time, but I would like to say
again that the staff in the Arvada,
CO store is just superb.
Sincerely,
—Gwen K.
We really want to hear from you!

O
Calling all Cooks!
We need your help. At Penzeys we believe the best way to spread the richness
that comes to life through cooking is to show the richness that comes to life through
cooking. To do this we need you.
For years we have pretty much randomly cast for
cooks to fill our pages. It occurred to us it might
make for a better catalog if we knew a little
bit more of what gets you excited about your
cooking and your life. With 2011 being the year
of our 25th birthday party we would love to hear from
cooks with fun birthday traditions. We would like to feature at least a couple
birthday cakes in every catalog this year, but we are also looking for
those special birthday meals. Making someone’s favorite meal just
the way they like it makes all the difference in the world and there
is no better time than a birthday to make it happen.
I am also hoping throughout this year to take some time to reflect
on where we have come from and to think about where
we are going. With our roots on the near Northwest side of Milwaukee
it would be great to find cooks who share our Midtown Milwaukee
experience. And with my father playing such a huge role in what
Penzeys has become, and with what a difference the kindness
of foster care made in his life, I would love to feature
a few people with their own foster experiences
to share. And to show how far cooking has

But beyond these ideas, what we really
need for our catalog is you. As much as we can
start with ideas for what a catalog can be, so often just one answer on
one survey can lead us off in a whole new different and often beautiful
direction. Come be a part. Please visit penzeys.com and fill out our brief
questionnaire to share with us what happens in your kitchen.
I appreciate it.

Bonnie Butter Cake with Caramel Icing
Louise Hartwell Carr (story on page 40) says, “My goodness, if you’ve never tried Caramel Icing, you must; it’s just wonderful.”
Okay, you twisted our arms...
Cake:
2вЃ„3 Cup butter, softened
13вЃ„4 Cups sugar
2 eggs
11вЃ„2 tsp. PURE DOUBLE STRENGTH
VANILLA EXTRACT
3 Cups cake flour
21вЃ„2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
11вЃ„4 Cups milk
Caramel Icing:
1 Cup butter
1 Cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 Cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1вЃ„2 Cup whipping cream
4 Cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 tsp. PURE DOUBLE STRENGTH
VANILLA EXTRACT
Preheat oven to 350В°. Grease and flour three 8-inch or two 9-inch baking pans and set aside. We
recommend using two layers the first time, as it is easier to frost! In a large mixing bowl, cream
together the butter, sugar, eggs and VANILLA until fluffy, about 5 minutes. In a separate bowl,
combine the flour, baking powder and salt. On low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients,
alternating with the milk, until well mixed. Pour into the pans and bake at 350В° for 25-30 minutes
or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Turn out
on a wire rack and cool completely before icing.
For the icing: Louise cautions that this is not an easy icing because it hardens so quickly. “Be ready
to pour it on! Actually have the first layer on the serving plate and the other layer(s) at hand and
ready to go BEFORE you begin making the icing.” Also, the recipe given here is a double recipe. If
you don’t care for quite as much icing you may cut the recipe in half.
Melt the butter and brown sugars over low heat until dissolved, stirring constantly. Add the
whipping cream and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly for about 7 minutes.
This will burn easily so do not leave it unattended. Remove from the heat. Pour into the bowl of
an electric stand mixer. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar and VANILLA at medium speed with
the whisk attachment. You can also use a hand mixer with the thinnest beaters. This will take about
6-10 minutes and then it will begin to thicken. If it suddenly gets too thick you may thin with 2 TB
of hot water. Once it starts to thicken pour it on the cake immediately. Do not worry about making
the top pretty before you frost the sides, just pour it on and smooth the first layer, repeat with the
second and quickly do the sides before it all hardens up! Even with your best efforts, there may be
a bit of hardened icing left in the bowl—it is like delicious caramel candy, so enjoy it!

large eggs
Cup milk
tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
tsp. ALMOND EXTRACT
Preheat oven to 325Вє. Put all the ingredients into the large bowl of an electric mixer and beat at high
speed for 51вЃ„2 minutes. To prevent splashing, you may want to start at a lower speed and mix until
everything is blended before turning up to high speed.
In the meantime, grease a large tube pan. Pour the beaten batter into the pan and bake at 325В° for 1
hour and 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and then turn upside down to remove. Run a slim, sharp
knife around the sides and across the bottom before inverting to remove without damage to the
outside.
Notes from Martie: “If all goes well, and it un-molds perfectly, this is a beautiful, medium golden
brown cake that needs no additional trimming. However, it is spectacular as a base for cut sweetened
strawberries or blueberries. It can have a lemon glaze drizzled over it, or be decorated with a pattern
of powdered sugar or cocoa. It serves at least twenty ordinary people, or a family of four that keeps
cutting “just one more little slice.” (I know this from long years of experience.) It can accept whipped
cream, or a chocolate sauce or a scoop of ice cream.
“If one side is attacked by a too-much-tempted Great Dane, the rest of the cake can be cut into slices
onto a pretty platter to serve, and nobody will be the wiser. (Do not ask how I know this.)
“The next best thing about this cake, besides the taste and texture, is how easy it is! One bowl, no
sifting, no pre-beating of eggs—a hallelujah moment for today’s busy cooks—and the recipe is almost
50 years old.”
*Another note from Martie: “I do not understand why the fat content needs to be as written. I
have tried it with butter, and it doesn’t work. I have tried it with all Crisco and it doesn’t work. I am
convinced that this is just one of those kitchen magic things that it is best not to examine too closely.”

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.

Northwoods Seasoning
Faithy’s Baked Beans
Stella (story on page 52) writes, “The following recipe is an old New England recipe that was given to me by
a co-worker when I worked in Cambridge, nearly 50 years ago! People groan or roll their eyes when I say I’ll
bring baked beans to a potluck but change their minds once they taste it.”
1 lb. dry, large lima beans (if you can’t find
the large, the smaller work as well)
1 large onion, finely chopped
3⁄4 lb. bacon, cut into 1⁄2” pieces
1вЃ„2 lb. (or slightly over) brown sugar, or
to taste
1вЃ„4-1вЃ„2 tsp. REGULAR MUSTARD POWDER
1вЃ„2 tsp. THYME (optional)
Soak the beans overnight, covering them with at
least 3-4 inches of water. Drain them (there is apt
to be no water left at all) when ready to cook. After
draining the beans, cover them with fresh water
and boil them until they are nearly tender, which
takes about 20 minute once they come to a boil.
Preheat oven to 300В°. Combine the beans (along
with about 1 cup of the bean cooking water) in a
9x13 baking dish with the onions, bacon, brown
sugar, MUSTARD POWDER and THYME (if using).
Bake at 300В° for about 2 hours or until the beans
Mustard
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 hot mustard, store at
room temperature for 4 weeks, then move to refrigerator
(or try 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, 1вЃ„2 tsp. salt and 1 TB. honey. Mix until
smooth, then pack in glass jars. For Chinese restaurant-style
mustard, mix 3 TB Oriental powder with 3 TB water. Let
stand 10 minutes for heat and flavor to develop.

are quite brown on top and the bacon appears
to be well cooked. They should be juicy, not
runny and definitely not dry.
A note from Stella: “These can be served hot or
cold. I prefer them slightly warm and they are
especially good cold when served on warmer
days. Delicious and NOT AT ALL like baked
beans, despite their name which has been
handed down with the beans with no real idea
of its origin.”

One of our most popular seasonings. Up North
Wisconsin is a great place to fish, but it’s an even better
place to eat. Northwoods is a perfect seasoning for
family-style fried or baked chicken and fish. For baking,
sprinkle on 1-2 tsp. per pound—rub fish with a bit of
oil first. Try adding Northwoods to hearty soups and
stews. Hand-mixed from: coarse flake salt, paprika, black
pepper, thyme, rosemary, granulated garlic and ground

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 В№/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 ВІ/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.

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
intensive crop; only 5-7 pounds of
saffron can be produced from each
acre of land. This makes saffron
the most expensive spice by
weight. However, saffron isn't the
most expensive by use 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, several batches of bread,
or a couple of big pots of paella.
Onion Powder
Onion powder adds lots of flavor, and is a convenient way
to slip onions past children. White onion has sweet raw
onion flavor, toasted onion has a French onion flavor. To
make Onion Salt: Mix 1 TB Onion Powder with 3 TB salt.

Onions
Dehydrated onions are great to keep on hand for those
times when you've run out just when you need them the
most. White onions have the flavor of a sweet onion, without
the sharpness of raw onions, ideal for those who like the
flavor without the bite. Toasted onions have a “French Onion”
flavor, very nice for roasts. 2 TB = 1 small onion.

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 1вЃ„2 tsp. each black pepper and garlic,
add to 1вЃ„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, 1вЃ„2 tsp. each MEXICAN OREGANO,
cumin, garlic, salt, and a dash of cayenne.

“Yes, 90 candles on my cake. I think they
alerted the fire department just in case.
It was the best cake ever and no trick
candles, thank goodness!”
Louise
Hartwell Carr
M
y 90th birthday party was
the biggest surprise you ever saw! It
actually lasted all week long,” laughs
Louise Hartwell Carr of Norcross,
Georgia.
“My relatives gathered from
all around. First we had a triple
celebration for my son, my son-in-law
and me. All our birthdays are in July.
The kids made a big cake, there were
presents and everything. So I thought
that was it.
“But then came the big surprise, my
90th birthday celebration which was
just for me. Oh, I was really surprised.
I was sent off to the beauty shop to get
my hair done. And when I got home
after what seemed to be an unusually
long time, I was ushered into the
dining room where all my family
stood waiting.
“There was this huge cake covered
with the most wonderful caramel
icing and 90 blazing candles. My little
granddaughters helped me blow
them out. One of my presents was
90 gold dollars. Can you imagine?
They’re not real gold, but you’d be
surprised how heavy just a few of
them makes your purse. Whenever
the little ones visit and ask, �Grammy
do you have a surprise for me?’ I hide
one of those gold coins and oh my, do
we have good times together.

Penzeys spices | Spring
“When I was growing up Mama
always made special cakes for our
birthdays. I had six brothers and
one sister so living on our rice farm
in Gueydan, Louisiana was never
lonely. We played and had lots of fun
together.
“The earliest birthday party I
remember was the summer I turned
six. Mama and I were making my
birthday cake. I was sitting on the
table next to the big mixing bowl
when she pointed to a little bottle.
I uncorked it and got my first whiff
of vanilla. When she added it to the
batter I thought it was the grandest
I ever smelled. I never forgot that. I
couldn’t wait to get a finger into that
batter and taste the most delicious
flavor.
“So when we cleared off the table,
I grabbed that little bottle of vanilla
and sneaked outside with it and
proceeded to drink that wonderful
vanilla. Of course I was chokin’ and
gaspin’ and horrified that something
which smelled so good tasted like
that. I never told anyone.
“For my own children we lived in
town so their friends were included.
Jim’s first birthday party was a cowboy
party. I made 10 lassoes, one for each
of his kindergarten friends. Well, it
poured down rain the whole time so
the kids had a wild time indoors. That
was one party to remember. They
were lassoing anything that moved or
stood still.
“My best ever birthday present was
one I kinda talk a lot about. My first
born son James was born on July 13th
two days before my birthday.”
We asked Louise if she would
share her 90th birthday wish with
us. She told us, “I don’t even know
what I wished for. I have 5 children,
8 grandchildren and 3 great
grandchildren. I was a 6th grade
teacher for many years, traveled
around the world and now at 90,
I’m doin’ what I want to do. I’ve
mellowed and slowed down quite a
bit, but I like to paint, write and sew
and my grandkids come to see me so
I have lots of company.
“I think I have it all already!”
Shrimp/Crawfish/Alligator Г‰touffГ©e
This recipe from Louise’s son, Jim, is rich, bold and delicious. Make some for your next family dinner.
1-2 lbs. 30-50 count fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined; 1-2 lbs. frozen
crawfish tails; or 1-2 lbs. alligator “bites”
2 TB. CAJUN SEASONING, divided
4-8 TB. butter, divided (Jim uses unsalted), the second 4 TB. is optional!
1вЃ„3-1вЃ„2 Cup all-purpose flour
1вЃ„2-1 Cup finely chopped onion
1вЃ„2-1 Cup finely chopped celery
1вЃ„2-1 Cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 TB. PENZEYS MINCED GARLIC
1 tsp. THYME
2-3 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. hot sauce
3вЃ„4-1 Cup fresh tomatoes, diced
11вЃ„2-3 Cups water mixed with 1-2 tsp. CHICKEN or SEAFOOD SOUP BASE
1вЃ„2 Cup thinly sliced green onion
3 TB. minced fresh Italian parsley
1вЃ„2-1 tsp. salt, to taste
1вЃ„2-1 tsp. PEPPER, to taste
1вЃ„4-1 tsp. CAYENNE PEPPER, to taste
2 TB. lemon juice, optional
5-6 Cups cooked rice
See spice Index on page 61
Season the shrimp with 1 TB. of the CAJUN SEASONING and set aside to
marinate. Melt half of the butter in a large cast iron or heavy duty skillet
over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the
roux is the color of peanut butter, about 10-15 minutes. Add the onion,
celery and bell pepper and cook until translucent, stirring regularly, about
5-10 minutes. Stir in the remaining CAJUN SEASONING, GARLIC, THYME,
Worcestershire and hot sauce. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes.
Add a small amount of the CHICKEN/SEAFOOD stock and stir well to form
a paste. Add the remaining stock gradually, stirring constantly so it is nice
and smooth. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer for 30-60
minutes. Boiling will insure the roux does its job and thickens the sauce.
You may need to add a little more stock after the simmer stage to insure
the end result is the consistency of a gravy—not too thick, not too thin.
Add the shrimp/crawfish/alligator, green onion and parsley and simmer for
10 more minutes or until the shrimp/crawfish/alligator is cooked through
(shrimp or crawfish should take about 10 minutes, alligator will take about
60 minutes). Stir in the remaining butter if desired and salt, pepper and
CAYENNE to taste. According to Louise’s son Jim, “A little lemon juice may
add a little �Je ne sais quoi’ (I don’t know what) flavor!” Serve over rice.

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.

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.

Rosemary
Raspberry Enlightenment
Whole Spanish Rosemary Leaves
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.
Rosemary is the perfect herb for seasoning pork and
lamb, from chops to roasts. Try rosemary on chicken and
fish with garlic, pepper and salt. Rosemary is often used
with oregano in Italian dishes. If you are cooking for
children, the powdered rosemary is nice.

Back by popular demand. We discontinued this one for

favorite sandwich. To make homemade croutons
(great for using up odds and ends of leftover bread):

TB. seasoning. Traditional and very flavorful when
sautГ©ed in 1-2 TB. butter or olive oil (toss over medium
heat for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown). For crispy,
low-fat croutons, coat lightly with a vegetable oil spray,
season and bake at 375Лљ until brown (8-15 minutes),
turning twice while cooking. Hand-mixed from: coarse
salt, garlic, black pepper, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme,

We’re cutting back on salt.
A really good and healthy thing going on
with food right now is that people are
using less salt. We want to be a part of
this. Going forward we will continue to
sell reasonably priced generic salts of the
earth and sea, but we will no longer be
selling the higher priced specialty salts. I
feel things have gotten to a point where
the specialty salts are glamorizing the use
of salt and, with that, encouraging people
to use more of it. I have also found that
along with the marketing of specialty salt
has come a great deal of misinformation,
including claims that some salts don’t
affect your health like others do. This is
just not true and not something we want
to be a part of. Salt is salt, it really is, and it
tastes no different no matter where it
comes from.
With our belief that cooking comes from
caring for those around you we feel part
of that is caring for the well-being of the
people we cook for. We all have our own
relationship with salt and I respect that,
but as a cook and as a business I feel so
much better about working to cut back
on the use of salt rather than encouraging
the use of more. I hope this makes sense
to you,

Buttermilk Ranch
Ranch style salad dressing is lower in fat than most, as it
uses buttermilk for flavor and body. 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 В№/2 cup
buttermilk and В№/2 cup mayonnaise. 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.

Country French Vinaigrette
Making your own salad dressing is
easy and inexpensive, and the finished
product is far better than those sold at
the supermarket. Each dressing can be
tailored to your individual tastes and
the fat and calorie content are yours to
control. Feel free to experiment—make
the Italian dressing as a vinaigrette or a
creamy style, add a teaspoon of Dijon
mustard or a handful of chopped chives,
whatever you’d like. These dressings are
also great for fresh vegetable or chip dip
or as flavorful sandwich spreads; just
use the creamy styles, such as Buttermilk
Ranch, Creamy Peppercorn or Green
Goddess. All of the dressings are
delicious on pasta or potato salad and
make nice marinades for chicken or fish.
Dressings can be made ahead of time and
stored in the refrigerator—so they can be
ready when your salad is, without having
to be mixed each time.

Spring Salad
According to Anne MacGregor (story on pg. 16),
“Spring is the time to start trout fishing!”
This recipe is incredibly versatile. The amounts used
are approximate. Simply take advantage of the very
first fresh vegetables of spring and pair them with
your favorite dressing. Anne likes Creamy Peppercorn
while her husband prefers Italian Vinegar and Oil. She
also likes to top the salad with edible spring flowers
like Johnny jump-ups.

cup (8 oz.) hot water. This is equivalent to 1 bouillon
cube, though Beef Base has more flavor and less salt.
Plain beef broth is wonderful when you’re under the
weather, or add noodles or vegetables for a quick lunch.
To “beef up” the flavor of soup, stew or gravy, add 2-3
tsp. Beef Base. For 2 quarts of soup or stew, add 2-3 tsp.
Beef Base. For gravy, add 1 tsp. Beef Base to 2-3 TB. beef
drippings to enhance the flavor of 2 cups gravy.

Chicken Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich chicken stock use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Chicken Base for
each cup (8 oz.) hot water. This is equivalent to 1
bouillon cube, though Chicken Base has more flavor
and less salt. Plain broth is great when you’re on a diet,
or add noodles and vegetables for a quick lunch. When
making rice, add 1 tsp. Chicken Base to the water for
rich flavor. Chicken base is used to fortify the flavor of
soup, stew or gravy. For 2 quarts of soup or stew, add
2-3 tsp. Chicken Base. For gravy, add 1 tsp. Chicken
Base to 2-3 TB. chicken drippings to enhance the flavor
of 2 cups gravy.

Ham Soup Base and Seasoning
Our soup bases are great for broth,
soup or gravy, but they also make great
seasonings. Try a little in rice, vegetables
and casseroles—wherever you need
a bit of extra flavor. Refrigeration is
recommended, but not necessary.
Ham Base is traditionally used to add rich, smoky ham
flavor to split pea or bean soup. For 2 quarts soup or
stew made with a ham bone, add 1 TB. Ham Base. For
soup without ham, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Ham Base per cup
(8 oz.) water. For ham gravy, add 1 tsp. Ham Base to 2-3
TB. drippings from baked ham to enhance the flavor of
2 cups gravy. Ham Base gives a flavorful boost to plain
vegetables or rice, just add a bit to the cooking water.

For rich roast pork flavored stock, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Pork
Base for each cup (8 oz.) hot water. This is equivalent to

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.

Seafood Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich seafood stock, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Seafood base for
each cup (8 oz.) hot water. Seafood stock is a great base
for chowder, gumbo or bisque, or to use in place of
clam juice. To make quick linguine with clam sauce,
cook 1 lb. pasta. While pasta is cooking, heat 2 TB. olive
oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add 2-4 minced
garlic cloves and 1 can clams, reserving the juice. Saute
for 2 minutes, add clam juice, В№/2 cup water and 1-2 tsp.
Seafood Base. Cook over medium heat 3-5 minutes,
stirring, until reduced by about half. Serve over cooked,
drained pasta.

Turkey Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich turkey stock, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Turkey Base for

though Turkey Base has more flavor and less salt. Plain

weather, or add vegetables or noodles for a quick lunch.

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.

casseroles and plain steamed veggies. Wonderful for
poaching fish. Rich roasty carrots form the base of our
new Vegetable Soup base, along with powdered
onions, potatoes and tomatoes.

Shallots
The flavor of shallots is similar to a sweet cross
between onions and garlic, but more delicate, rich and
complex. Shallots are used in France for poultry, veal,
salads, eggs and soups. In Indonesia, shallots are used
to add rich, sweet flavor to satay, soup & dipping
sauces. If your recipe calls for fresh shallots, use half as
much as the recipe calls for. A В№/2 tsp. of freeze-dried
shallots equals one clove fresh shallots. From California.

Madagascar Vanilla Beans
Regarded as the world's best, Madagascar beans set
the standard for prime vanilla flavor.

Mexican beans, while similar to Madagascar,

Vanilla Sugar
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 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 favorite here
at Penzeys, but has also been made and
used for years and years by Grandmas
everywhere. It is made simply by
splitting a vanilla bean and placing it in
sugar until it becomes rich with vanilla
flavor, then removing the bean and
using the sugar in baking (replace 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.

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

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.

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.

Maggie’s daughter Monica, husband Steve,
Maggie and her youngest daughter Emily all
enjoy time together in the kitchen.
Maggie Seymour
W
hat I love most about cooking
is sharing it with others,” says Maggie
Seymour of Lubbock, Texas. “I enjoy
making people feel special and what
better time to do that than on their
birthday!
“I recall a particular birthday cake
that my mother made for me. It was
a plain layer cake with homemade
butter cream frosting. She decorated
it like a circus tent complete with
animal crackers all around the edge.
I’m sure my memory of this cake
has inspired the cakes and birthday
traditions in my family.
“My children always had birthday
parties growing up. The special
person gets to choose whatever they
want for dinner and a cake of their
choice, homemade of course.
“Their cake choices focused on
a theme from the decorations or
their current interest. A few of the
favorites were a horse corral for
my daughter who was in love with
horses, an under the sea cake and
a lady bug. I like putting together
menus and decorations that have
a common theme to honor the
birthday person whether they are
family or friend.
almond, lemon and orange extracts on page 18.
“I have enjoyed teaching my
daughters about cooking and
having their company in the kitchen
since they were small. We have
lots of fond memories of working
together to create both ordinary and
extraordinary meals.
“My mother always encouraged
my interest in cooking and the
positive reinforcement I received
from her solidified my life-long love
of cooking. I’ve tried to do the same
with my daughters who have both
become excellent cooks.
“So many lessons can be taught
and talked about while you’re busy
measuring, sifting and stirring. It’s
also a much easier time to talk about
difficult issues like boyfriends when
you’re concentrating on the task of
cooking.
“I also remember talking about
how to handle mistakes that can
happen in the kitchen. You can fix it,
start over, let it go, or make the best
of it but most of all learn from it.
Those are life lessons too!
“Cooking is central in my life. It is
my hobby and my pleasure and the
way I outwardly show affection for
my family and friends.
“My husband Steve is also a good
cook and now that we are empty
nesters we cook together frequently.
Some of our most special evenings
involve planning and cooking a meal
we will both enjoy.”
The Seymour’s share their love of
cooking with many folks.
“Our church provides hot,
homemade and nutritious meals
for homeless individuals at a local
mission. We currently cook for 100
people. This is very rewarding and
it’s nice to watch people enjoy the
care and love provided by others.
Cooking for others is such a win-win
situation and the best way I know to
make others feel special.”

Italian Cream Cake
This cake from Maggie is sure to be the life of the party.
2 Cups sugar
1вЃ„2 Cup vegetable shortening
1вЃ„2 Cup butter (1 stick)
5 eggs, separated
2 Cups flour
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Cup buttermilk
1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
1 small can (8 oz.) shredded coconut (or
1 Cup if you have a bag of flakes)
Frosting:
1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1вЃ„2 Cup butter (1 stick)
1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
33вЃ„4 Cups powdered sugar (1 lb.)
1 Cup chopped nuts; pecans or walnuts
are good
Preheat oven to 350В°. Grease and flour three 9-inch
cake pans and set aside. In a large bowl, cream
together the sugar, shortening and butter until light
and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, mixing
well after each addition. In a separate bowl, mix the
flour with the salt. In another bowl, mix the baking
soda with the buttermilk. Add the flour mixture
alternately with the buttermilk mixture to the
creamed mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
Mix well. Stir in the VANILLA and coconut (Maggie
also adds the nuts at this point but we thought
they would look nice mixed in with the frosting). In
a metal bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently
fold the egg whites into the batter. Pour the batter
into the cake pans and bake at 350В° for 25 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes in the pans and then remove
from the pans to cool thoroughly before frosting.
For the frosting: beat the cream cheese, butter,
VANILLA and powdered sugar until smooth and
light. Fold in the nuts and frost the cooled cake.

Llucy Llama surprises
Priscilla with a kiss—
maybe to celebrate
the arrival of the new
spring lambs.
Astro, the senior ram
on the farm, shows off
his graceful, long and
curling horns.
“Priscilla Weaver” continued from page 21.
Lamb Sausage and Rice Bake
Priscilla Weaver describes this dish as an “update on a decades-old recipe for comfort food at the end of a
vigorous day of planting the gardens or tending the new spring arrivals—calves, lambs or foals.”
1 lb. ground lamb
3вЃ„4 tsp. HUNGARIAN-STYLE SWEET PAPRIKA
3вЃ„4 tsp. ground BLACK PEPPER
1вЃ„2 tsp. GROUND FENNEL
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt
dash CAYENNE PEPPER
2 garlic cloves, crushed (or 1вЃ„2 tsp. PENZEYS
MINCED GARLIC)
21вЃ„2 Cups water mixed with 11вЃ„2 tsp. CHICKEN
SOUP BASE or 21вЃ„2 Cups chicken stock
11вЃ„2 Cups wild rice/brown rice mixture (or any
other rice you have on hand)
3вЃ„4 tsp. TURKISH OREGANO
3вЃ„4 tsp. THYME
1вЃ„3 Cup halved pimento-stuffed green olives
(about 18 olives)
1 Cup peeled and finely chopped celeriac
root (or 1вЃ„2 Cup thinly sliced celery if you
can’t find celeriac)
2 TB. TOASTED MINCED ONION
1 4-oz. can mushroom pieces, drained
1вЃ„2 Cup sweetened condensed milk
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Penzeys spices | Spring
Preheat oven to 325В°. In a mixing bowl, combine
the lamb, PAPRIKA, PEPPER, FENNEL, salt, CAYENNE
and GARLIC and mix well. Heat a skillet over
medium heat and cook the lamb until no longer
pink. If your lamb is too lean, you may need to add
a bit of vegetable oil so it doesn’t stick. Drain off
any fat.
Combine the lamb mixture with the remaining
ingredients in a 3-5-quart casserole dish or Dutch
oven with a lid. Stir well to combine. Cover and
bake at 325В° for 11вЃ„2-21вЃ„2 hours, until the rice is
tender but the edges have not browned too much.
This can also be made in a slow cooker on low
for 7-8 hours although the end result will be a bit
mushier.

Priscilla and Steve each find time
to give back to their community. “I’m
a volunteer law clerk which keeps
me involved in the law that I love. I
also enjoy doing benefits with fellow
musicians to assist our local library
and food pantry. Steve is one of
many dedicated volunteers helping
out with the local food pantry by
delivering food each week.
“When Sunday night rolls around
we intentionally do not make plans.
We enjoy our favorite comfort food,
revisit the week’s activities and make
plans for the upcoming week. For
the last 39 years we have enjoyed
having this evening to ourselves just
to catch our breath.
“Our city friends thought we lost
our minds when we told them we
were moving to rural Oregon, but
we have never regretted our decision
for even a minute. We landed in a
fascinating, supportive and delightful
community of all sorts of interesting
people. We pinch ourselves every
day to be sure it’s real and we never
take for granted our good fortune at
having found such a rewarding new
set of life adventures.”

One of the very best things that happened growing up was my
father convincing my mother’s parents to come live with us in the
big white house on Kavanaugh Hill in Tosa. Joseph and Eva Burns
were two of the best grandparents a kid could have. They were
always there for us.
Eva, we called her Gram, grew up in a time where feelings were not
so easily expressed with words or hugs, but her magic in the kitchen
never left any doubt of her love for us. Not only was Gram a great
cook, she was a great baker as well and for us kids it was always her
tradition to bake our choice of cake with our choice of frosting for
our birthdays. We tried many combinations over the years growing
up, but far and away the most loved was her banana cake with her
chocolate frosting.
This is a most awesome cake, you should give it a try. Gram was
amazing, it was her love every night at dinner that opened our eyes
to where cooking really lives, in the heart. At times I wonder if
without her would Penzeys Spices have simply become one more
business started in the ’80s and ’90s focused on selling
exclusive products for exclusive people?... I don’t
know. What I do know is that over the last 25 years,
Gram’s love unlocked many doors for us, and I
believe our inclusiveness is the continuation of the
warmth and hospitality that radiated from her
kitchen every day.
Grandma Eva passed away a couple of years before
Penzeys started. Twenty some years later my wife
Jeri and daughter Teddi bake her banana cake
with chocolate frosting for my birthday. This
makes me very happy. I like to think this makes
Gram happy too.

Gram’s Banana Cake
Every year when those April birthdays rolled around, Gram would make our special request–banana cake with chocolate frosting. This cake is just the best, and
it is pretty darn easy, too. Make sure those bananas are really ripe. Ripe bananas store well in the freezer, just cut the tip off and squeeze into the measuring cup!

Cups sugar
Cup butter (2 sticks)
eggs
Cup sour cream
tsp. baking soda
Cups all-purpose flour
TB. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 6 fresh,
8 if using previously frozen bananas)
Preheat the oven to 350В°. Grease and flour three 9-inch cake pans and
set aside. Mash the bananas and place in a measuring cup. If using
previously frozen bananas, just cut the tip off and squeeze the thawed
bananas into a measuring cup, pouring off any watery liquid. Cream the
butter and sugar together until well mixed. Add the eggs and beat well.
Mix in the sour cream. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and
baking soda. Add to the creamed mixture and beat well. Add the
mashed bananas and PURE VANILLA EXTRACT and mix well. Divide
evenly among the prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a
toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool a few minutes
and remove from pans. Cool completely before frosting.
