Our years of selling spices have taught us that cooking is not a one size fits all world: far from it. WeвЂ™ve learned the wonder of cooking lies in the incredible diversity of the people who cook, and in the incredible variety of the food they cook. Over the years we have come to understand 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 the kindness of cooks works. 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 kindness to build it one meal at a time. It is this kindness we celebrate, this kindness we hope to spread, this kindness that makes all who cook ONE. Through our pages we hope to share the greater family of human kindness that weвЂ™ve found all cooks belong to. Come along and join us. Be ONE. Just in time for summer, we are introducing another great blend: Mitchell St. Steak Seasoning. Mitchell St. is smoky flavorful delicious. Great on a grilled steak but also a great way to add variety to your chicken, fish and dare I say it even tofu (see p. 63). Mitchell St. is a blend of my fatherвЂ™s and us adding it is part of the blending of my parentsвЂ™ business in with ours. It shares a kinship with the Chicago Steak Seasoning but is maybe a little less smoky than the Chicago, and a little more flavorful. If you like Chicago Steak you will definitely like Mitchell St. Steak Seasoning. And if youвЂ™ve never tried itвЂ”do. You and the people you cook for will be glad you did. With this issue covering the time of both Memorial Day and the Fourth of July we are featuring the stories and recipes of Veterans. In many ways this issue is a fitting sequel to our recent MotherвЂ™s Day issue because at the heart of both the stories of Moms and the stories of Vets is the willingness to give of oneself to make life better for othersвЂ”in another wordвЂ”Kindness. I think half of us understand firsthand the caring that is at the heart of the U.S. military, but for others of us who are not part of the tradition, we just look on from a distance and donвЂ™t quite get it. In many ways these halves fall along the social fault lines that sadly have been making working together as a country extra difficult these days. Here in Wisconsin, for whatever reason, we seem to be having a harder time working together than most. With our вЂњspecialвЂќ election there is an overwhelming amount of outside money flowing in to flood the airwaves with messages that are such a long way from positive. But for whatever it is worth, even in all this, there are signs the pendulum is beginning to swing back. The passion for conflict so prominent for so long just seems to be losing steam under the weight of it all. Times are changing. Where just a couple years ago compromise was akin to failure, more and more there is the sense that it is the only real way forward. Maybe, just maybe, the problem isnвЂ™t those on the other side of the divide from us. Maybe the problem is the divide itself. My father always liked the line, вЂњBeware of similarities disguised as dissimilarities.вЂќ So especially if you are not from a military family or havenвЂ™t really met military families, open yourself up to the great stories inside this issue. You might be surprised just how much you see of yourself in their lives. Great recipes too.

A good guideline is to buy a one yearвЂ™s supply of herbs or ground spices, and a one to two year supply of whole spices. The governmentвЂ™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 Arizona Dreaming is simply a delicious all-purpose coming together of spices. The flavors of South of the Border combined in the ways that Americans love so much.

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.

Though not as strong as the California variety, they have a natural depth of flavor that the California bay leaves canвЂ™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.

Titus Lepic M y love of grilling started during my first deployment to Iraq in 2007,вЂќ says Titus Lepic of Longview, Texas, who served as a Marine in both Iraq and Afghanistan. вЂњI lived on a small patrol base with about 30 other Marines. Since we didnвЂ™t have a chow hall available, we were kept supplied with a freezer full of meat and left to cook for ourselves on our charcoal grill. We supplemented our diet of steak, chicken and sausage with beef jerky and Pop Tarts we received in care packages from home. вЂњI still remember my first attempt at cooking a steak. When I was done with it, it closely resembled the charcoal I had used to cook it. Fortunately, a few Marines from my squad decided to show me how to prepare, season and properly cook meat.вЂќ The few. The proud. The grillers. вЂњNow, five years later, I am really into grilling,вЂќ says Titus. вЂњI use the charcoal grill I made from a 55-gallon drum, very similar to the one I learned on. IвЂ™ve been cooking and experimenting ever since. вЂњBut many things have changed since I first began cooking as a Marine. I have a wife, Lydia, I graduated from LeTourneau University in East Texas, and now I work for U.S. Steel as a maintenance management associate. When Lydia graduates, also from LeTourneau, weвЂ™ll be settling down near my job in Hughes Springs. We plan on keeping a few chickens and growing fruit and vegetables because knowing where our food comes from is important to us.вЂќ Adds Lydia, вЂњTitus enjoys bold, manly flavors, and his specialty in the kitchen is a dish he calls Man Food, which includes potatoes, eggs, jalapenos, bacon, tomatoes, cheese and a hefty dose of Cajun seasoning. He also grills the best burgers IвЂ™ve ever eaten, and IвЂ™m not just saying that because IвЂ™m his wife!вЂќ While Titus earned his grilling stripes in the service, Lydia learned to cook at the heels of her mother. вЂњI grew up with my momвЂ™s amazing home cooking that was classic Southern food with an East Texas bent, and I wanted to learn how to cook from her,вЂќ says Lydia. вЂњI considered it a vital part of growing up. вЂњMy mom was the first in my life, but now that IвЂ™m married I love cooking for and with Titus. I missed that part of our relationship so much while he was deployed to Afghanistan this past year. I had a scrap of paper that I listed all the things I wanted to cook for him when he came home. I Grilled Veggies Quick, delicious and healthy.

Thread the veggies onto bamboo skewers so that theyвЂ™ll lie flat on the grill, or just carefully place the veggies on your grill so they donвЂ™t fall through the grate. Grill baskets are nice for keeping things from falling through. Grill for 6-8 minutes on the first side, then flip them and grill for another 5-6 minutes, depending on how soft you like your grilled veggies.

When the patties are done cooking, move them away from direct heat on the grill, flip, and add another TB. of BBQ sauce to the un-BBQ sauced side and add the cheese. Once the cheese is nice and melted over the patties, remove to a plate and serve. Titus likes to serve them on whole wheat buns with tomatoes, pickles and fresh salad greens like baby spinach.

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.

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. 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. To make a flavorful ancho chili oil: Chop 3 peppers into 1" chunks and simmer in 3 cups good corn oil, 20 minutes.

Natural High Fat Cocoa Powder 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.

Fragrant Korintje cinnamon is as strong as China cinnamon, but smoother and not as nippy. We love Korintje cinnamon for sprinklingвЂ”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. 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 contentВвЂ”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 fruitвЂ”especially in apple pie. 14 Penzeys spices | summer 1вЃ„ 4 cup jar (net 1.0) #43032 $ 3.45 1вЃ„ 2 cup jar (net 2.2) #43058 $ 5.69 4 oz. bag #43045 $ 5.09 8 oz. bag #43087 $ 8.89 1 lb. bag #43016 $ 16.40 Ceylon Cinnamon Complex and fragrant, with a citrus overtone and rich buff color.

Now grilling is a hobby. вЂњI enjoy the challenges of live-fire cooking and the complexity of flavors. I also enjoy grilling because itвЂ™s a time when my whole family can get involved.

Leo served in Company G, 2nd Marine division in the 8th regiment. Leo Bassetto After Pearl Harbor was attacked I wanted to join the service to help defend our countryвЂ™s freedoms and joining the Marines was a good fit for me,вЂќ says Leo Bassetto of Friendship, Wisconsin. вЂњI trained in New Zealand, one of the most beautiful places IвЂ™ve ever seen. I became a machine gunner and was shipped to Tarawa and then on to Saipan. On the island of Saipan, 179 of us went in to fight and only 19 Marines came out without physical wounds. вЂњI was hit 14 days after we landed and just days later, on July 3rd, the U.S. took over the island. Two Purple Hearts were awarded me for the wounds I suffered and President Roosevelt shook my hand as I recovered at the naval hospital in Hawaii. вЂњWhen I returned to the shores of California on a stretcher, I remember asking the guys to set me on the ground so I could touch it, to thank God for getting me home. The docks were full of people. I remember the smell of hotdogs being cooked by street vendors, it all smelled so good. I knew I was home. вЂњThe war changed my life completely. I had to adapt to civilian life with a disability and finding work was difficult. War made us grow up quickly. We learned to be strong physically and mentally. вЂњI met my lovely wife Delores in 1950 on a blind date and proposed to her at Buckingham Fountain. We were married six months later. Soon after we married we opened our first carryout business, called LeeвЂ™s, featuring chicken, ribs and seafood in Chicago. Over the years we ran three successful food service businesses and raised six children together. вЂњIвЂ™ve taught my children to follow the rules, know right from wrong, donвЂ™t complain, be strong for your family and friends and live life to the fullest. Delores and I recently celebrated our 61st anniversary and now have 15 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren with 2 more on the way. IвЂ™m grateful for every day.вЂќ LeoвЂ™s daughter Donna, shares, вЂњMy dad has inspired several family members to never doubt the healing power of their amazing bodies. They all stood strong through their experiences and are doing well, thanks to my dadвЂ™s encouragement. My dad is a very special man. Many A WWII photo of Leo and his fellow Marines during battle. have learned to respect and honor life from knowing him. He has been a true friend and mentor to many. HeвЂ™s incredible!вЂќ вЂњI always say, with nothing you get nothing. This is true about cooking as well as living life. When cooking I start with the freshest food possible. I make homemade sausage and wine which we enjoy giving to neighbors, friends and relatives. вЂњIвЂ™ve also loved having a garden, planting seeds and watching the food grow, then cooking with the fresh vegetables.

They will celebrate their 42nd wedding anniversary this year. Jim & Kim Jones L ike a lot of mothers, mine cried when the U.S. Army assigned me to Vietnam in August of 1968,вЂќ recalls Jim Jones. В вЂњDespite an uncertain future and the real possibility of death around any corner, the experience was about to broaden my horizons in ways I could not imagine. вЂњFive months after arriving in Vietnam, I was given command of a Signal company deep in the southernmost part of the country. I was a 21-year-old first lieutenant suddenly in charge of 120 men, 6 communications sites and millions of dollars worth of equipment.вЂќ But thatвЂ™s not what changed JimвЂ™s life. It was a young Vietnamese woman who worked as a switchboard operator at his company headquarters. вЂњItвЂ™s accurate to say that she was beautiful, bright, hard-working, compassionate, selfless, generous, and really, really nice,вЂќ says Jim. вЂњI was so taken with her that shortly before I was due to return to the United States, I bought her a ring and asked her to marry me. She accepted my proposal, but once I left, her Vietnamese co-workers told Sweet and Sour Pork This recipe from Jim is fast and flavorful and a guaranteed hit with the whole family. 1 lb. pork loin, cut into thin strips 1-2 TB. soy sauce 1 egg yolk, beaten 2 TB. corn starch 1 1 вЃ„3- вЃ„2 Cup vegetable oil (Jim uses olive) Sweet and Sour Sauce: 1 small can (8 oz.) pineapple rings (4 pineapple rings if using fresh) 1 Cup water 3 TB. ketchup 2 TB. vinegar 2 TB. sugar 2 tsp. sesame oil, divided 1 tsp. CHINESE FIVE SPICE POWDER (optional) 1 slice fresh ginger, shredded (or 1вЃ„2 tsp. POWDERED GINGER) 1вЃ„2 tsp. GROUND BLACK PEPPER 1 TB. corn starch 1 bell pepper, any color, chopped into slices In a zip-top bag or covered bowl, combine the pork strips, soy sauce, egg yolk and corn starch. Slosh the bag around to coat the pork. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. For the Sweet and Sour Sauce: Mix the juice from the can of pineapple (or any juice that drains off your fresh rings) with the water, ketchup, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Heat 1 tsp. of sesame oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add the 4 pineapple rings cut into quarters, sprinkle with the FIVE SPICE, GINGER and PEPPER and cook for 1 minute. Add the pineapple juice mixture and the corn starch and cook until the sauce turns clear, 2-3 minutes. Add the bell pepper slices and remaining sesame oil. Stir, remove from heat and keep warm. In a separate frying pan, heat the 1вЃ„3-1вЃ„2 cup of oil over medium-high heat. If your pan is smaller you can get away with 1вЃ„3 cup, but you may need to cook the pork in 2 batches. Once the oil is hot, add the pork and cook until nicely browned, 3-5 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain very well on paper towels. Pour the sweet and sour sauce over the cooked pork.

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 holidaysвЂ”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 waysвЂ”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. Crystallized Ginger They donвЂ™t call it candied ginger for nothingвЂ“many of our customers buy it to eat it piece by piece, because it is just that good. Tender Australian ginger, peeled and cut into В№/4" dices, then preserved using the oldfashioned sugar cure method, which gives a spicy sweet flavor to the ginger. Virtually fiber-free, crystallized ginger is perfect for baking and candymaking. 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. 1вЃ„ 4 cup jar (net 1.3 oz.) #58830 $вЂ‰4.59 1вЃ„ 2 cup jar (net 3.1 oz.) #58856 $вЂ‰8.09 4 oz. bag #58843 $вЂ‰6.45 8 oz. bag #58885 $вЂ‰11.79 1 lb. bag #58814 $вЂ‰22.40 Sliced China Ginger Root Dried sliced ginger root pieces stay fresh and flavorful indefinitely, so they will be ready when you are.

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 worldвЂ™s bestвЂ”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.

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.

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 TellicherryвЂ”a larger and more mature peppercorn, possessing a more developed flavor.

John Oakley O ur story together began at Fort Bragg, North Carolina,вЂќ recalls Susan Oakley, whose husband John is the state training officer for the Wisconsin National Guard. They make their home in Appleton. вЂњWe were both active duty in the Army. We met during training for our expert field medical badge. I left the military in 1987 but John stayed on in the Guard, doing his once-a-month weekends while at first going to school and then working. It wasnвЂ™t until 2000 that John began working for the Guard full time. He had always enjoyed the military and decided to make it a career. вЂњOur life was going along quite normally at that point. We were busy with our two daughters, Erin and Sarah, a big yellow Lab and fixing up our house that was built in 1907. Then 9/11 happened and the world changed for everyone.вЂќ John explains, вЂњThe first and immediate impact for the Guard was a new focus for training. No longer did we prepare for possible scenarios; we now had a real enemy and a real threat. Second, we started receiving funding. Just two years prior to 9/11, we had to leave our tanks and personnel carriers parked because there wasnвЂ™t enough money to pay for fuel and parts. We received new equipment as well.вЂќ In 2005, with the OakleysвЂ™ daughters in the 5th and 8th grade, John was deployed to Camp Navistar in Kuwait, where he served as the Story continues on page 45 Grilled Pizzas Move family pizza night outside with this great recipe from the Oakleys.

For the dough: In a large bowl, combine 4 cups flour, salt, sugar, yeast, PEPPER and SEASONING. Stir to combine. Make a well in the center. Pour the olive oil in the well and mix with just enough warm water to form a soft dough. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly-floured surface. Knead for about 10 minutes, adding extra flour to the surface as required as long as the dough is sticky, kneading until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly-greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size. You can cover and refrigerate overnight at this point if desired. Roll the dough out into 10-12 individual pizzas, about 6-inches in diameter. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and GARLIC, GARLIC SALT or SANDWICH SPRINKLE. Brush one side of each of the pizzas with the oil mix and place on a hot grill, oil-side down. Brush the tops of the pizzas with the oil mix. When golden brown, flip the pizzas with tongs. Place your desired toppings on the browned side and cover the grill to heat through/melt cheese.

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. 1вЃ„ 4 cup jar (net 1.0 oz.) #14135 $ 3.55 1вЃ„ 2 cup jar (net 2.3 oz.) #14151 $ 6.09 4 oz. bag #14148 $ 5.35 8 oz. bag #14180 $ 9.65 1 lb. bag #14119 $ 17.90 Four Peppercorn Blend Mixture of Tellicherry black and Mysore green peppercorns from India, white peppercorns from Sarawak, and the rare pink peppercorns from the French island of Reunion.

We designed our peppermills to be fully adjustableвЂ” 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. *All peppermills come filled with Tellicherry black peppercorns and salt shakers with Kosher style flake salt.

It wasnвЂ™t my life goal to join the service, but after being at the Academy I realized becoming a pilot would be about the coolest thing I could do professionally. вЂњI have over 4,000 hours of flying, each mission different in its own way. Flying a C130, 300 feet off the ground at 220 mph, wearing night vision goggles, to a barely lit, short Landing Zone is a favorite flight. вЂњIвЂ™ve seen my share of combat on previous deployments.

Whether I was an aircraft commander on my crew, director of operations or commander of a squadron, thereвЂ™s always someone new to the deployment grind, so itвЂ™s a team effort to make sure no one is by themselves. вЂњA few of us will head over to the hospital to visit with those who are waiting to be evacuated out of the country for follow-on care. Talking with a wounded warrior or just listening when thatвЂ™s best has always been something that tears at your heart. вЂњOne of my best memories was coordinating a flight home for an old friend who was finishing his tour in Iraq. I brought him up to the flight deck. He was enjoying the ride, retiring after 21 years in the Army and I was happy to give him that first leg of his journey home. вЂњMy wife, Heather, has attended and done the honors at every one of Eric, currently stationed at base headquarters in Kandahar, looks forward to being home with his family. Heather says, "I think he's going to grill breakfast, lunch and dinner. When Eric's home from deployment he is ready for family time on the deck cooking and hanging out together!" my pin-ons and having my boys with me for a few of these promotions has been quite special as well.вЂќ Heather looks forward to Eric being home and recalls a memory she holds close in her heart, especially when sheвЂ™s missing him. вЂњOn my 40th birthday, I woke up to a blanket of white outside; yes, it had snowed for the very first time on my birthday. Eric dug a path out to the grill and prepared the most delicious dinner for me. вЂњI cherish the memories we have made when we gather together for one of EricвЂ™s infamous grill fests. I love watching Eric and our boys create wonderful meals together around the grill.вЂќ Their son Conner, 15, is EricвЂ™s grilling apprentice and tells us, вЂњWhat I like most about grilling with my dad is the time we have to talk and joke around and make awesome meals together.

Bill, IвЂ™ve been meaning to share this with you for years. When my Dad was able, he took your shipment box and made it into a spice rack. IвЂ™ve included a picture here. He and my Mom would always stop by to see your store on their way back from the west every year. She passed away this last year and heвЂ™s now just left loving your spices without the lovely cook by his side. But, I thought sharing this with you would help him find some meaning and make an old man happy in his almost 90 years of living. He still loves your spices and goes every once in awhile to the store in Rockville, MD to get Fox Point to put on his eggs. He enlightened me about your spices and I have become a true addict. IsnвЂ™t this cool? He was an engineer in his profession so converting things to some sort of usable state wasnвЂ™t uncommon. The photo is the outside of your box with an extra shelf for spices.

Mitchell Street Strip Steaks A good grilled steak relies more on tips than recipes, so here they are. Just hang out by the grill during cooking so things donвЂ™t get away from you, and it will all be good. 4strip steaks, 8-12 oz. each (about 1-11вЃ„4вЂќ thick) 2 tsp. MITCHELL STREET STEAK SEASONING 2 tsp. vegetable oil (optional) Choosing the steak: Make sure the steaks are uniform in thickness so they cook evenly. Look for steaks with a nice, lively red color and fat that is marbled through the meat. Seasoning: Rinse steaks, pat dry with a paper towel. If the steaks are damp they will steam, not brown, when thrown on the grill. Rub with MITCHELL STREET STEAK SEASONING. If you like your steak rare or medium-rare, spread a bit of vegetable oil on the steaks before rubbing the seasoning in, as this will help give the steaks nice grill marks and a crispy exterior in the shorter cooking time. 36 Penzeys spices | summer See page 25 The coals: To cook steaks, the grill should be nice and hot. Coals should be a consistent ashy grey and glowing red. To get nice grill marks on the steak, place the grill grate over the burning coals at least 5 minutes before the steaks go on. Charcoal grills heat up faster with the cover off, while gas grills heat up faster with the cover closed. The medium-rare secret: Have a hot grill. Cook the steaks directly over the coals 4-5 minutes on the first side. Flip the steaks, and then grill until a little bit of juice comes to the surface of the steakвЂ“approximately 4-6 minutes. As soon as this happens, pull the steak off the grill. Make sure to let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting. The steak needs this time for the juices to settle in the meat. If cut sooner, the juices will just pool on the plate. The spicy steak strips also make a great topping for a garden-fresh salad.

Mitchell Street Turkey Steak Burgers Everyone loves burgers; they are simple and quick to make. Turkey burgers are a bit healthier, and our new MITCHELL STREET STEAK SEASONING makes them smoky and delicious. 1 1-2 1 4 lb. ground turkey tsp. MITCHELL STREET STEAK SEASONING TB. olive oil (optional) crusty rolls or soft hamburger buns condiments of your choice Mix the turkey with SEASONING and olive oil. The added oil allows the patties to brown on the grill and stay moister inside when cooked to the higher temperature (165В°) ground poultry requires. Form the ground turkey into 4 equal patties. To keep the patties from shrinking into round, fat balls during cooking, make a circular 1вЃ„4вЂќ deep indentation with your thumb in the middle of each burger. Heat a heavy pan or hot grill over medium high heat, and put the burgers in the pan/on the grill. Cook 5-6 minutes, then flip and cook about another 4 minutes. Turkey burgers should be cooked through, and they donвЂ™t get as brown as beef burgers. Add a slice of cheese for the final minute if desiredвЂ”we usually stick with nonfat additions like pickles and onions.

Pulled Pork If you choose to make this recipe in the oven, be prepared for a whole day of torturous temptation as the aroma fills your house. 1 pork shoulder, 10-12 lbs. 3-4 TB. MITCHELL STREET STEAK SEASONING 1 Cup tomato sauce 1-2 TB. cider vinegar 1-2 TB. honey 1-2TB. WHOLE YELLOW or CRUSHED BROWN MUSTARD SEED Preheat oven to 225В°. Rub pork with seasoning, place in a large deep pan. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over the pork, turning to coat thoroughly. Cover with foil, place in the oven and cook for 10-12 hours at 225В°. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes after cooking, then pull apart with two forks, if it hasnвЂ™t already fallen apart. Save some of the juices (draining the fat off, which rises to the top) to add to your pork once itвЂ™s all pulled and ready to serve. This helps keep it nice and moist. Note: Some newer ovens turn off after 12 hours, so be aware that you will need to pull it at that point and serve or refrigerate it.

Derel dressed in his Air Force Honor Guard uniform along with his Yorkiepoo pups, Loulou and Claire. Derel Schrock D erel Schrock, a retired Air Force colonel, recently gathered his belongings and returned to Edmond, Oklahoma, near his roots in Enid, Oklahoma, where his love for the military and outdoor cooking developed as a young man. вЂњI remember learning to barbecue with my uncles around a large brick pit filled with mesquite logs. They would throw on big sirloins, ribs and brisket which smoked for hours as they basted the meat. We would sit around the pit, sipping whiskey while I listened to their WWII stories. Good times! вЂњI received my draft notice while in grad school in 1962. Knowing I was qualified to fly after ROTC training in college, I signed up. This took me all over the world for seven years, including Vietnam. вЂњI remember a thrilling, late-night solo flight during pilot training. I climbed to 35,000 feet, tuned in a local radio station and found RachmaninoffвЂ™s Piano Concerto No. 2 being played, a favorite at that time in my life. I вЂ�loiteredвЂ™ until it was finished, assuring the control tower that I had adequate fuel to safely return and land. You canвЂ™t imagine 38 Penzeys spices | summer Hot Spinach Salad The pancetta in this salad from Derel really does make a delicious difference. 2 9-oz. bags baby spinach (or you can use bigger regular leaves and de-stem them if you wish) 1вЃ„3-1вЃ„2 Cup olive oil 4 oz. pancetta, diced (you can substitute thick-cut bacon or Canadian bacon but neither has the same taste as pancetta) 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped 1Cup or so corn kernels (kernels from 2 ears of roasted corn) 3-4TB. white wine or rice wine vinegar, to taste 1-2tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER, to taste 1 tsp. TURKISH OREGANO (optional) 2-4 TB. crumbled feta cheese, to taste 4 Roma tomatoes, diced what a magical experience that was, to be alone way up high in the dark, listening to the concerto. It was quite thrilling for an impressionable novice.вЂќ Derel flew many memorable missions in Vietnam, some more dangerous than others. One in particular earned him the Distinguished Flying Cross, a medal awarded for heroism and extraordinary achievement while volunteering for an aerial flight in the face of danger. As they say, вЂњAny mission you can walk away from is a Pour 1вЃ„3 cup of oil into a large skillet and place over medium heat. If you are using fattier pancetta or bacon it will take a bit longer to cook and get nicely browned (roughly 7 minutes) than a leaner pancetta or Canadian bacon (roughly 5 minutes). Once the meat is browned, add the garlic, corn kernels and vinegar and stir together. Cook for 1-2 minutes and reduce heat to low. Stir in the PEPPER and OREGANO. Add the spinach in batches and toss until it begins to wilt, adding the remaining olive oil if necessary. Keep the cooked spinach warm. Stir all of the cooked batches of spinach together. Divide among warmed salad bowls and garnish with feta crumbles and diced tomatoes.

We were flying a C-7A (De Havilland Caribou), designed for short take-offs and landings. It could take off and land on a dime and survive almost anything. вЂњAfter returning from Vietnam, I flew for the airlines while remaining an Air Force reservist. During this time I delivered returning POWs from Vietnam, flew on critical air next-of-kin. I always make an effort to get acquainted with the family beforehand. It is not uncommon the deceased and I have something in common and I find I may have crossed paths with the veteran. Loulou is my constant companion and has been attending with me since she was a pup. She loves everyone and everyone loves her. ItвЂ™s a privilege and very important for me to pay my respects, to honor my fallen comrades, and to connect with their families.вЂќ вЂ“Lani Haag Smoky Bacon-Biscuit Dressing Derel in full kilt, Clan MacGregor on his motherвЂ™s side, visits Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. evacuation missions and was an instructor and check airman on C-9As, finishing my career on the Air Staff in the Pentagon.вЂќ Today Derel is on a different mission. вЂњMy cooking вЂ�road showsвЂ™ take me visiting friends and family from Chicago to Texas to California and everywhere in-between.

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.

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.

I can only imagine how I would feel if that were my home or business.вЂќ Cooking is a cornerstone of DaveвЂ™s family. вЂњMy mom, dad and older sister Patricia were the major influences on me in the kitchen. They all cooked and they were and still are all amazing. My mom is from Germany and she taught me how to prepare many German dishes including roulade, schnitzel and spaetzel.

It just wouldnвЂ™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 choiceвЂ”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 dessertsвЂ”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 strawberriesвЂ”after a few minutes even kids think it is as good as a cookie. 50 Penzeys spices | summer 50 Penzeys spices | summer 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. WeвЂ™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 Mexican Vanilla Beans chopped, mixed and aged with white sugar. 1вЃ„2 cup jar (net 3.4 oz.) #92351 $ 7.49 1 cup jar (net 6.8 oz.) #92380 $ 13.79 2 cup jar (net 13.6 oz.) #92322 $ 26.55 Single Strength Vanilla 35% alcohol. Pure extract from the highest quality 100% premium Madagascar вЂњBourbon IslandsвЂќ 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 oneвЂ“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. 2 fluid ounce bottle #92135 $ 7.29 4 fluid ounce bottle #92151 $ 13.29 8 fluid ounce bottle #92180 $ 22.89 16 fluid ounce bottle #92119 $ 38.55 Double Strength Vanilla 35% alcohol. Pure double strength vanilla extract made from the highest quality Madagascar вЂњBourbon IslandsвЂќ vanilla beans. Compared to the single strength, twice as many beans are used to make each gallon of extract (about 200 beans). вЂњTwo-foldвЂќ 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.

Dave & Kerri Godfrey K erri GodfreyвЂ™s heart sank when she learned that a Coast Guard helicopter had crashed into Mobile Bay, Alabama. вЂњMy Facebook wall lit up with news about it,вЂќ says Kerri. вЂњWe all held our breath for more news as they searched for the crew. One of the members on the helicopter was a sponsor cadet of a very good friend. ThatвЂ™s just a few steps away from it being the actual child of a friend.вЂќ Four men who died in the crash were memorialized at a service where words to the song вЂњAmerican AnthemвЂќ rang out: Let me know in my heart when my days are through, America, America, I gave my best to you. The Coast Guard doesnвЂ™t always get the attention of other military branchesвЂ”sometimes it takes a tragedy like the helicopter crashвЂ” but these men and women put their lives on the line just like other service members. And Coast Guard families, or вЂњCoasties,вЂќ are a close-knit group. вЂњIn the past 20 years my husband Dave has been stationed in eight places,вЂќ says Kerri. вЂњI joined him a bit after his career got off the ground. I have had, in the past 13 years, 7 almond, lemon and orange extracts on page 19 вЂњWe are loving Alaska!вЂќ says Kerri of the GodfreysвЂ™ newest adventure in Juneau. addresses in 6 states. We will be here in Alaska for a total of 3 years. I donвЂ™t worry too much about where we are going next, because there will be a Coastie family or two waiting to greet us, and help us get sorted out. And we will reciprocate by having them over for dinner. вЂњThe Coast Guard motto semper paratus means вЂ�always ready.вЂ™ I think it applies to the families, too. One friend had to leave Alaska for the funeral of her grandfather. I am on call this weekend if her husband needs anything while taking care of the kids. We have no family nearby to lean onвЂ”we are family to each other. вЂњWe tend to cook a lot for our friends (any locals who are willing to befriend folks that wonвЂ™t be around more than a few years) and any Coasties we can rope in. We believe in the concept of the Coast Guard family where, since family is not around, we are willing to help each other out when we can. вЂњWhen we were stationed in Connecticut for 5 years we had a slew of cadets at our house on the weekends. Cadets are college students who are not allowed off campus until the weekendsвЂ”and no car allowed until their senior yearвЂ”and they just need a couch to crash on and some good food to devour. I would go grocery shopping on Tuesdays for our Incredible Vegan Chocolate Cake Originally called вЂњWacky CakeвЂќ due to the lack of eggs, we renamed it for our vegan friends. Kerri explains, вЂњThis one was my momвЂ™sвЂ”it was one of the few that she took with her when she left the orphanage.вЂќ 3 2 2 2 6 2вЃ„3 2 2 2 Cups flour Cups sugar tsp. salt tsp. baking soda TB.

Pour over the cake, spreading the icing to the edges, and let it cool. The frosting may stick to the knife when cutting the cake, so dip the knife in warm water and wipe clean after each cut.

Monica & Joe Soebbing have had a connection to the military and veterans all my life,вЂќ says Monica Soebbing of Hampshire, Illinois. вЂњIt makes me proud to know I have somehow helped each of them while they have served all of us. I think it has been a good way to live my life. вЂњMy grandfathers both served during WWI because it was the thing to do. My Dad joined just after WWII, because he wanted to do something more with his life. He was stationed in Japan and was among the first troops in Korea. вЂњMy husband Joe and I married after he enlisted in the Army at the end of the Vietnam conflict. He was stationed in Washington, D.C., and upon completing Officer Candidate School in Georgia became a Lieutenant. вЂњWe moved to Fort Knox in Kentucky where both our daughters were born. As a Training Officer, JoeвЂ™s mission was to train the new recruits to drive and operate tanks. They were on 16-week cycles working 16-20 hours per day, 7 days per week.

So great to be home! Army coffee and cigarettes in those days. вЂњBeing an Army wife was challenging yet rewarding. The friends we made became our extended family; we were each otherвЂ™s support system. It makes me smile to remember those days. They were good times with a lot of good friends. вЂњThe training and travel offered by the Army Reserves appealed to our younger daughter, Eliece. So far, she has been to Panama, all over the US and Afghanistan. вЂњI never dreamed I would send a daughter off to war. It is the unknown and not being able to protect your child that scares you. The joy of hugging her and holding her in my arms upon her return is comparable to holding her as a newborn baby. вЂњEliece serves with a Forward Surgical Team of about 15 members. They are the first line of medical care our troops receive before being sent on to Germany and then home. вЂњWhen Eliece was in Afghanistan, I sent her a вЂ�goodie boxвЂ™ every week to brighten her day. She claims the cookies didnвЂ™t last long enough for her to take them to her tent. вЂњвЂ�Just cook, Mom!вЂ™ was her response when she arrived home and I asked what she wanted to eat. It is a joy to cook for those I love. It creates good memories of times shared, and isnвЂ™t that the best part of living? вЂњLara, our oldest daughter, married Derek, who has served seven years in the Army.

Select a green or greenish orange papaya. The riper they get, the harder they are to shred. Peel and de-seed the papaya. Shred the papaya on a hand grater or use a food processor. Rinse several times with cold water. Add the carrot, mix well and set aside. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, 2-4 minutes depending on the size of your shrimp. Drain and rinse with cold water. Shell and de-vein the shrimp and cut lengthwise in half (butterfly). Combine the water, fish sauce, vinegar, sugar and spices and mix well. Divide the papaya/carrot mix between two plates. Top with shrimp and drizzle with several tablespoons of the dressing. Top with crushed peanuts and serve. You will have enough dressing for several salads; it stores well in the fridge. вЂњJim JonesвЂќ continued from page 21 her she would never see me again. вЂњMarriage would not be an easy thing to do.

It was June of 1971. вЂњAnd thatвЂ™s when I found out something else about Kim, my bride. The woman could cook.

My father had long hair and drove a VW Microbus. In some ways we both did the same thingвЂ“we both honored our fathersвЂ“but in doing the same thing we ended up on opposite sides of the divide that has done so much to shape our countryвЂ™s discourse in recent times. Though our paths were different and sometimes even at odds, we still had a great deal of fun together. I quickly learned you canвЂ™t hang out with just one Marine. More often than not they travel in a group. It is their way. They look out for each other. They have each otherвЂ™s backs. It is a very cool and surprisingly caring approach to life. So one night I arrived at the Church Key Bar with my friend from high school and a contingent of his fellow Marines. As the evening wore on, the largest and most enthusiastic of the UWвЂ™s Marine ROTC program, who if memory serves me correctly was named Murray, had gotten himself into a situation. The Church Key had a second floor balcony on which there were two young women Murray was flirting with from the floor below. 62 Penzeys spices | summer He had told them he would climb up the balcony to where they were; they doubted his ability to do it. His situation really was not so much about who was on the balcony, it was that Murray had said he would do something and for Murray his word was his honour. Murray knew he could make the climb; the problem was he just could not do it alone. Being a Marine he just assumed there would be someone there to assist. IвЂ™m not sure where the rest of the group was at that moment, but he could not have been too happy to look around the bar and see that the only person he knew within shouting distance was me. With my track record and attitude I canвЂ™t imagine he was overly hopeful, but this was a fleeting moment; there was not time to go find somebody else. I guess somehow enough of what the Marines were had rubbed off on me because I was able to put aside my normal thought process of вЂњdoes this make sense?вЂќ and вЂњwhat happens next?вЂќ In that moment I was actually able to see there were only two possible outcomesвЂ“me helping Murray, or Murray losing honour. Being Madison, they had done a pretty good job of making the interior walls of the bar unscalable. What they hadnвЂ™t counted on was a highly skilled and highly motivated Marine Corps climber getting a foot up from some long-haired history major standing atop a bar tableвЂ¦ As the bouncers escorted me out the door the manager, who I donвЂ™t believe I had ever met before, shouted at me, вЂњThatвЂ™s the stupidest thing youвЂ™ve ever done!вЂќ I donвЂ™t know. Looking back, IвЂ™m not entirely proud of the number of times my instinct to avoid risk stopped me from giving someone else a foot up in the world, or the moments where I was more interested in debating the soundness of someoneвЂ™s plan when I should have just jumped in and helped, or how often, rather than telling someone I would do something, IвЂ™ve told them I would вЂњtryвЂќ to do it instead. And for far too long where I should have just rolled up my sleeves and pitched in I simply sat back and broadcasted what I felt was my own superiority. Good Lord, couldnвЂ™t they see I was a vegetarian? Sigh. So I have to say on further review I think I disagree with the bar manager. Giving it nearly thirty years of thought I donвЂ™t think it was the stupidest thing I ever did. In fact IвЂ™ve come to believe that my actions on that long ago night in Madison might have been one of the first times I actually got it right. Love People Overcome obstacles, Mitchell St. TLTs (Tofu, Lettuce & Tomato) My school days were also my vegetarian days. My mother knew how much I loved bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches and found a way to use tofu to make a pretty good vegetarian substitute. Now with my fatherвЂ™s Mitchell St. Seasoning they are even better. Thanks Mom. Thanks Dad. 1 2 2-4 8 2 4 12 oz. package firm or extra firm tofu (usually located in the vegetable section of the grocery store) TB. MITCHELL STREET SEASONING TB. vegetable oil slices sandwich bread for toasting large, red ripe tomatoes nice pieces of lettuce mayo and mustard as desired Remove tofu from package and pat dry. Start with extra firm tofu if youвЂ™ve never cooked it, it holds together best; switch to regular firm once you are See spice Index on page 61 used to dealing with tofu. Tofu has a lot of moisture and is fragile, so gently pat well with several paper towels. Slice with a cheese slicer or good thin knife into slices about 1вЃ„8вЂќ thickвЂ”youвЂ™ll end up with 2024 slices from the package if you do well. Slice the tofu right onto another dry paper towel and blot both sides. Heat 2 TB. oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Season the tofu fairly heavily with MITCHELL STREET SEASONING on one side. Carefully slip the tofu into the pan (we used a small spatula), seasoned-side down. Cook 4-5 minutes, sprinkle the topside with MITCHELL STREET, and flip carefully. It takes a little practice to keep the tofu from breaking, but usually the tofu cooks back together if it partially breaks anyway. Total cooking time for nice golden tofu that still will be a bit chewy on the inside is 8-10 minutes over medium heat. Place on a paper towel-lined plate. Cook the next batch, adding another TB. of oil if necessary. Make toast and cut veggies while the tofu is cooking. Just like bacon, tofu will shrink by about half, and it spits as it cooks, too. Unlike bacon, itвЂ™s pretty good for you, so give it a try! It will get easier over time, once youвЂ™ve become familiar with tofu and how it acts.
