Northwoods
A place where working class Wisconsin families
–if they saved for a while–could have a small place
on one of our many lakes. A place where they could
invite relatives and friends to fish, cook, eat and
simply relax with nature. Lots of great food, lots of
great neighbors, lots of great flavor.
NORTHWOODS SEASONING
A taste of summer all year round, Northwoods Seasoning is
awesome on pretty much everything. Steaks on the grill, fish
in the pan, potatoes, veggies and greens from the garden or
the kindly neighbor. Everything a magical summer in
Wisconsin provides. Use 1 teaspoon per pound on steak and
burgers, chicken wings grilled or fried, every kind of fish,
potato salad or potatoes on a salad, asparagus, pork chops
and ribs. When the lakes freeze over, it’s 1 teaspoon per pound
on pork roasts and roast chicken, beef short ribs, roasty roots
and hearty stews. Northwoods Seasoning, it’s not just a
seasoning, it’s a way of life.

Summer 2011
In our continuing celebration of Penzeys Spices twenty-five
years, in this issue we are highlighting where we come from.
In our travels throughout this great country we have seen lots
of great places to start and grow a business; our great place to
start and grow has been Wisconsin.
Seems when talking about launching a business the standard tale to tell is one of epic struggle: challenges met, competitors bested, obstacles overcome etc. I have not found it
to be that. In fact the twenty-five years from starting with me
being the only employee to this year where I now have over
500 great co-workers all over the country have been a lot of
fun and in many ways easy. I really think being lucky enough
to get our start in Wisconsin has a lot to do with this.
Current politics aside, whether business taxes go up or
down a few percentage points doesn’t mean much to the
health of a business. What actually matters is really pretty
simple. What a business needs to be healthy is great workers
and enough customers.

And as a retailer that sells to people of every possible economic background we also owe a great debt for the sacrifices
that generations of Wisconsinites have made to ensure that it
is not only the privileged few who have a couple extra bucks
in their pockets. These days, with two-thirds of the nation’s
economy being retail, this country’s life blood is a healthy
middle class. In Wisconsin we are lucky enough to have more
than a few who understand having that healthy middle class
was not a gift, it was a struggle. Their efforts are a big part of
why Penzeys has made it as far as we have.

Wisconsin is a great place, not the only great place, but certainly one of them. I hope you enjoy the stories and try a few
of the recipes of the people where we come from. And give
that Northwoods a try. It really is a great place to be.

Great workers don’t grow on trees, they grow in classrooms. As a business that manufactures, that creates a product known for quality, I can’t think of a more important piece
to our growth than having great people. Penzeys, like every
other business here, benefits tremendously from Wisconsin’s
long tradition of valuing education as an investment in our
future, and its history of respecting the teachers who are kind
enough to dedicate their lives to educating our young.

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.

(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

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

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

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).
Flavorful, colorful bell peppers are convenient and tasty,
nice for meatloaf, soup, pizza, casseroles and salads.
Picked at the peak of ripeness, yielding a farmer’s market
fresh taste. These peppers are so flavorful, a little goes
a long way, and they are ready to use when you are.
1-2 TB. dehydrated bell peppers give the flavor of 1 large
fresh pepper. Red Bell Peppers are sweeter than green
bell peppers, which have a zestier flavor. To rehydrate

I

Jennifer Quinlan. “My husband and
I have lived in Utah, France (three
different times), Madison, Eau Claire
and now we’re back in Barron. It’s the
last place we thought we’d end up, but
we’re so happy to be here.
“When my parents left for a twoyear mission they asked if we would
house-sit. At the time we had just sold
our house and were house hunting.
Things just fell into place and now
we’re in my childhood home on 3
acres raising pigs and chickens, and
with a big organic garden. We sell
some of our meat, eggs and produce
to a small group of loyal customers.
“Our three boys, ages 10, 8 and 5,
absolutely love the huge yard, garden

We spend most of the year outdoors,
whether it’s working in the garden
or with the animals, snowmobiling or
cross-country skiing, or just walking in
the woods and counting our blessings.

scratch from food from the garden—
and I know it’s the way my mother
was raised too. I feel a lot of love and
pride in this heritage.
“My grandma and mom were both

Cardamom
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.

Celery Seed
Black pepper is the best spice for beef, but good cooks
also add a touch of celery. Whole celery seed is used in
salad dressings, soups and pickling recipes, and
rubbed on large cuts of meat. Ground celery is used
more sparingly to season smaller, quicker cooking cuts.
Use half as much ground celery as whole celery.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Texas Caviar
Jennifer Quinlan (story on page 7) writes: “Here’s one of my favorite side dishes—a great accompaniment to
anything grilled. It’s tasty, high in protein and low in fat, and colorful. We eat it plain, as a side dish, or as an
hors d’oeuvre with tortilla chips. I use legumes from my garden, but canned legumes that are drained and
rinsed work fine, too. I use more or less of whatever we have on hand, so the amounts of beans, onions and
corn are really discretionary. It ends up being a little different every time, but always a hit with everyone!
This is my �basic’ version.”
15 oz. red kidney beans (1 can or 2 Cups
cooked)
15 oz. garbanzo beans
15 oz. white northern beans
15 oz. black beans
1 onion, finely chopped
1 lb. corn, cooked and chilled, 4-6 ears or
roughly 3 cups (Jennifer likes to use corn
grilled and cut from the cob for a nice grilled
flavor, but frozen or canned work fine)
1 small bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
(1вЃ„2 Cup chopped)
Dressing:
1вЃ„4 Cup olive oil
3 TB. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. MEDIUM HOT CHILI POWDER
or CAJUN SEASONING
1вЃ„2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
1вЃ„2 lime (juice of, 1-2 TB.)
Cook all of the beans and rinse well. If you are
using canned beans, drain them well and rinse
them. Combine them in a mixing bowl. Add
the onion, corn and cilantro and mix well. In a
separate bowl, combine the dressing ingredients
and mix well. Add dressing to taste. The salad
will absorb a lot of the dressing, so you may not
want to add it all at once. Mix well, cover and
chill overnight. Taste and add extra dressing if
desired.

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.
Ground Cinnamon
China Cinnamon—Tung Hing
Extra sweet, spicy and strong. Perfect for everything
from cinnamon rolls to apple pie, Christmas cookies
to French toast. China cinnamon is perfect for
cinnamon sugar—mix 2-3 tsp. in 1⁄ 2 cup granulated
sugar and keep it on the table. Sprinkle in pancake
and waffle batter, shake on oatmeal and cream of
wheat, yogurt and fresh fruit.

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

Complex and fragrant, with a citrus overtone and rich

whatsoever makes it the favorite in both England and
Mexico where it is preferred for all uses. Ceylon 00000
Cinnamon, ground, from Sri Lanka.

Lorri and her daugher LaTasha
(pictured here at 6 years old) enjoy a
day at "The Domes," a favorite
Milwaukee indoor garden.
Lorri Mason
It’s getting harder for me to
stay out of the kitchen, even though
it hasn’t always been my favorite
room in the house,” says Lorri
Mason of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
“When I was a young girl my
mom would try to teach me how to
cook. I guess I wasn’t interested
enough and I’d just say, �Call me
when it’s done.’
“Then about 10 years ago, well
after a few rounds with burned eggs,
my family gave me a cookbook for
my birthday. It was a bit of our joke,
yet they were really trying to help
me and I wanted to learn how to
cook, so it was the perfect gift.
“Trial and error and lots of fun
followed over the years. Now I love
to cook and even get special
requests. As an added bonus, I’m
developing a deeper appreciation
for my family through cooking and
dining at home.
“I recall when I was a child and
growing my mother would cook,
cook and cook. Morning, noon and
night we would sit together, say
Grace and share our meals.
Mealtime was family time. When I
think about my mom cooking I have
so many special memories of our
simple family meals and the
abundance of love she shared
through her meal preparations.
“My grandparents came to
Milwaukee from Shreveport,
Louisiana. My grandmother who was
Creole, tried to teach us to speak
French and how to make gumbo,
which she traditionally served on
Christmas. I feel so honored to carry
on this tradition with my teenage
daughter LaTasha, just as my mother
and other relatives have done before
me. It’s a very special way to bring
our family together.
“I love imparting my
knowledge in any way I can to be
helpful. I may volunteer at a
neighborhood school as a tutor
helping students and others with
reading as well as their homework.
My work includes helping those with
varying abilities and possible
rehabilitation efforts. It’s so
rewarding to me.
“What a great surprise to be
welcomed home from work by the
smell of fresh cookies my daughter
has made or a yummy breakfast to
begin my day. LaTasha really is a
great help to me.
“I enjoy cooking with my
daughter. It’s time we spend together
that I really look forward to. We were
experimenting with tilapia one day.
LaTasha hadn’t acquired a taste for
fish yet so you can imagine it was
music to my ears when she said,
�Wow Mom, this is really good. Do
you have any more?’

Campfire Chai Tea
Marty shares, “This is my recipe for homemade Chai Tea, which we drink on cool evenings or for breakfast all
the time when camping (my son doesn’t like hot chocolate and my husband and I don’t like coffee, so this is
one thing we all agree on).” The Gustafsons also like to drink this spicy tea iced on hot days.

Marty Gustafson
y husband and I are both
from small towns in Wisconsin,
Schofield and Mosinee,” says Marty
Gustafson. “We met in college at UWMadison. He was lucky enough to get
a job in Madison, whereas I had to
move around before finally getting
my job there too.
“We’re both engineers and project
managers at an aerospace company.
He works primarily on processes to
extract oxygen from lunar and
Martian soils, and I work on 3D
simulation systems for astronaut
training and plant-growth systems for
controlled environments on earth
and in space. It’s such an exciting
career and to still be able to live in
Wisconsin is a dream come true for
both of us.
“We do a lot of outreach in the
schools on space, math and science.
We do multiple career fairs, Cub
Scout events, summer camp tours
and school demonstrations. We bring
home our interest in helping inspire
the next generation of scientists and
engineers by making sure we spend
as much time as we can exploring the
world around us with our children.
See spice Index on page 61
“We live out in the hills between
Cross Plains and Mt. Horeb. We see
wildlife just outside our door every
day, live close to the Ice Age trail,
have room to plant a nice-sized
vegetable garden, and go fishing in
our neighbor’s pond anytime we
like. But in 15 minutes we can be in
Madison for all the great cultural
opportunities there. (The only
problem: finding a flat spot to teach
the kids how to ride their bikes, since
our house is on the infamous
Horribly Hilly Hundred bike race
route.)
“My favorite part of Wisconsin is
the Bayfield area and the Apostle
Islands. My grandfather worked on
the big Great Lakes ore ships, and
we spent a week camping in the
Apostles every year as kids. We
continue that tradition with our
children, and this summer we’ll
spend a week camping out on
Stockton Island. It’s my favorite of all
the Apostles—mile long beaches,
blueberries everywhere you look,
and enough bears to keep it
interesting.
“We also have a family cabin
outside of Phillips on the South Fork
of the Flambeau River. We spend as
much time there as possible. No cell
service, no internet, no electricity
(we do have a generator though). It’s
not as rustic as it sounds, but it feels
like another world. This spring we
went up to tap trees for maple
syruping season.
“Michael (age 8) and Laina (age
5) help me cook all the time. It’s a
great way to spend time together and
slip in lessons on nutrition, biology,
chemistry and even fractions! Plus,
when the result of your �hands-on
experiment’ is something good to
eat, who can resist? I think that
cooking together, especially
combined with having a garden, has
made my kids much less picky eaters.
Laina’s favorite food is my
homemade pickled beets, and
Michael can’t wait every year for the
sun gold tomatoes from the garden.
“As you can probably guess we
don’t spend a lot of time watching
TV, surfing the internet or playing
video games. It’s amazing how much
more time you have to cook dinner

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

4 / S Special Seasoned Sea Salt
Pronounced “four, S” our Special Seasoned Sea Salt
gives a great burst of flavor wherever salt is called for.
Like other seasoned salts, 4/S is great for steaks,
burgers and chops, but since we have made the flavor
lighter and brighter than your old seasoned salt, 4/S is
also outstanding for chicken, fish, veggies, salads and
popcorn as well. Give it a try, and we think you’ll agree
4/S = 100% delicious. Hand-mixed from: Coarse Sea Salt,
Sugar, Special Extra Bold Black Pepper, Paprika, Onion,
Turmeric, Garlic, Spice Extractives (including oleoresin of
paprika, black pepper, celery, rosemary and thyme).

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.
Hand-mixed from: salt, freeze-dried shallots, chives,
garlic, onion, green peppercorns.

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

oranges, lemons and almonds are carefully extracted onto an alcohol base. Economical,
easy and nice for quickly adding flavor to baked goods, sauces and frosting. To make a
simple syrup to glaze cakes, breads and muffins: boil 1вЃ„2 cup water, 1вЃ„4 cup sugar and 1 tsp.
of PURE VANILLA, ORANGE, ALMOND or LEMON EXTRACT for 2 minutes, then
let cool. Brush on finished bakery as a glaze, or use between cake layers before frosting.
Pure Almond Extract
This spicy version of our 4/S gives a spicy kick of
flavor wherever salt is called for. Just like its smoky
counterpart, Spicy 4/S is great on steaks, burgers,
chops, chicken, fish, veggies, salads, pasta, and
popcorn. Hand-mixed from: Coarse Sea Salt, Sugar, Red
Pepper, Special Extra Bold Black Pepper, Turmeric, Onion,
Garlic, Spice Extractives (including oleoresin of paprika,
black pepper, celery, rosemary and thyme).
Galena Street Rib and Chicken Rub
38% alcohol. Pure, strong, fragrant almond flavor.
Use in small amounts (usually В№/2 tsp. per batch) to

Balti Seasoning
Baltistan is an ancient region of northernmost Pakistan
with influences from Persia, Tibet and China. Balti
meals are rich stews cooked in a karahi (small wok),
and would be eaten with naan and other Indian
breads. The deliciously spicy but not too hot flavor of
Balti makes it a great choice for chicken, pork or beef.
Hand-mixed from: coriander, garlic, ginger, cumin,
dundicut chilies, Ceylon cinnamon, brown mustard seeds,
cardamom, clove, fennel, fenugreek, charnushka, ajwain,
star anise, black cardamom, cilantro, anise seed and bay
leaf.
Cooking With Curry
Many people who eat curry for the
first time in an Indian restaurant are a
bit overwhelmed by trying a dish that
is new to them but spiced for a person
who already knows and loves the flavor
of Indian food. The key to learning to
love Indian food yourself is to start at
home by adding small amounts of curry
powder to foods you already know and
like. Sprinkle on chicken or chops before
cooking, scramble a bit with eggs, sautГ©
with vegetables. Soon the whole family
will love the flavors, and you can move
on to authentic, but not too spicy, dishes
like Balti, Tandoori, SatГ© and Rogan Josh.
Finding new, quick ways to prepare the
same food for the family dinner isn’t
always easy, and Indian cooking is some
of the most delicious in the world. Give it
a try...
Not All Curries Are
Hot
Contrary to popular belief, Indian food
isn’t all hot. The wonders of spicing are
nowhere more apparent than in India,
where stronger-flavored meats, such as
lamb, are turned into the most delicious
dishes imaginable through spicing and slow
cooking. Tandoori, Maharajah and Sweet
Curry are rich and flavorful without being
hot. Hot Curry and Vindaloo are hot and
spicy. Garam Masala, Rogan Josh, SatГ©
and Balti are somewhere in between. Just
starting out? Try Sweet Curry, Rogan Josh,
Tandoori, Balti and SatГ© Seasoning.

Chinese restaurants, also known as “Madras Curry
Powder.” For grilled steaks, pork chops or chicken
wings, rub on В№/2 - 1 tsp. per pound, along with salt as
desired. For spicy chicken noodle or eggdrop soup, add
1 tsp. per 2 quart pot. Hand-mixed from: turmeric, red

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.

fragrant cardamom and a full pound of Spanish CoupГ©
saffron in every 100 lbs. of curry powder. Add glorious
color and flavor to chicken and seafood curry. For rice,
saute В№/2 tsp. in 1 TB. butter for 2 min., add 1 cup rice, 2

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

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,
cayenne, lemon grass.

The perfect first curry powder. Great flavor, little heat,

use В№/2 tsp. per lb. for rich (not too spicy) flavor. Add 1
tsp. to a pot of chicken soup for flavor and color. For a
curried pasta or green salad dressing, saute 1-2 tsp. in 2

cup yogurt or В№/2 cup vinegar and oil. Hand-mixed from:

Tandoori Seasoning
Clay ovens known as tandoors and the flavorful food
they produce have become popular the world over.
The most popular tandoori food is chicken. Skinless
half chickens are marinated overnight, skewered and
baked in the tandoor. You might not have a clay oven
in the kitchen, but Tandoori Seasoning tastes great
anyway. Try it on baked, broiled or grilled chicken
kabobs, and sautГ©ed chicken or fish. Hand-mixed from:
coriander, cumin, sweet paprika, garlic, ginger,
cardamom and saffron.

Vindaloo Seasoning
This hot and spicy blend comes from Goa, a small state
nestled in the middle of the Malabar Coast of India.
Though control of Goa was returned to India in 1961,
the four and a half centuries of Portuguese rule left
many lasting impressions. Pork Vindaloo is a favorite
dish of the Catholics, who make up a third of the
population of Goa. The Muslims and Hindus of India
prefer Vindaloo lamb or duck. Mix 2-5 TB. spice in 2-5
TB. water, set aside. Heat 2 TB oil, brown 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.

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).

Audrey Kellner
M y parents had an old-fashioned
corner tavern and I helped in the
kitchen from the time I was 11,”
recalls Audrey Kellner, 83, who was
born and raised in Milwaukee and
makes her home in nearby Delafield.
“Fish fries were 15 cents and were
all made from scratch. After school
on Fridays I would bread all the lake
perch and help make the Germanstyle coleslaw and French fries. We
also had cooked shrimp, boiled
lobster tails and oyster stew in season.
Of course we also had the hamburgers
and chili. It was a different time and
the corner taverns were family friendly
and neighborhood gathering places.”
Audrey retired in 1988 after a
career with JC Penney. “I guess you
could say I retired to be a volunteer. I
keep busy at Oconomowoc Memorial
Hospital, where I volunteer at the gift
shop and have co-chaired the bake
sale for several years. I did take a leave
of absence when my husband was
being treated at the cancer center, but
went back after he died. I also help
out our American Legion Post, and I
am a lector and Eucharistic minister at
my church and help when needed at
funeral lunches.”
Audrey’s husband Paul, who worked
as a supervisor at Miller Brewery until
his retirement in 1980, passed away
in 2010. They were married 61 years
and have four children and eight
grandchildren. “I do not cook as
much now, but love cooking for our
pot lucks at the golf league and the
legion. Of course the kids still like
Mom’s dinners and pies.
“My mother was a very good cook
and I was always welcome in the
kitchen. Mother had worked in a
cook car for a threshing crew in
Saskatchewan, Canada starting when
The Kellners were active golfers in retirement, and Audrey
still plays in summer leagues.
she was 12 years old. My mother and
father met in Canada when both of
my grandparents homesteaded there.
They moved to Milwaukee in the
1920s.
“We never turned our children
away from the kitchen, no matter
how much flour was flying! Today
my son and three daughters are all
good cooks and they have passed it
on to their children. Bill does a lot of
wild game and smokes great salmon,
chicken and more. Beth, who lives
in North Dakota, is passionate about
wild game cooking and is very good at
fishing and hunting. Terry sets a more
formal table and does wonderful fruit
plates and appetizers, and Karen is
the health conscious one who is always
trying new seasonings from Penzeys.
“I’ve been buying spices from
Penzeys since before 1963 (Bill Sr. and
Ruth opened their first store in 1957.)
From 33rd and Galena, to downtown
Milwaukee, to Glenview in Wauwatosa,
then from young Bill in Waukesha,
and now the new store near my
home. I still go to see Ruth at their
�retirement store’ in Wauwatosa when
I’m in the area.
“If you get busy counting your
blessings you don’t have time to worry
about things. I have a lot of blessings
to be counting.”
Karen’s Coconut Shrimp
This tantalizing recipe from Audrey’s daughter is a
delightful taste of the tropics.
11вЃ„2-2 lbs. peeled, deveined shrimp
1вЃ„2 Cup white rum
1 TB. lime zest (zest of 1 lime)
1вЃ„2-1 tsp. GRANULATED or MINCED GARLIC
1 tsp. CAJUN SEASONING
1 tsp. ARIZONA DREAMING
2 TB. olive oil
1Cup toasted, unsweetened, shredded
coconut*
In a zip-top bag, combine the rum, lime zest,
GARLIC, CAJUN SEASONING and ARIZONA
DREAMING. Slosh around to combine. Add
the shrimp, slosh again and marinate in the
refrigerator for 15 minutes. Heat the oil in a skillet
over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, reserving
the marinade. Cook the shrimp 2-3 minutes per
side and remove to a bowl. Pour the marinade
into the skillet and cook for a couple minutes, until
reduced by 2вЃ„3. Add the shrimp and heat through.
Sprinkle with the coconut and serve over rice. It is
safe to use the marinade because it is thoroughly
cooked, however, you can also reserve 1вЃ„4 of the
marinade before using it to coat the shrimp and
discard the rest, if you prefer.
* Toast coconut by spreading on a rimmed
baking sheet and cooking for 10-15 minutes
at 350В°, stirring every few minutes until evenly
golden brown. It can be quite difficult to find
unsweetened shredded coconut, so we tried the
recipe with sweetened shredded coconut from the
baking aisle as well, and it was delicious!

Ginger
Ginger is one of the most widely used
spices in the world. In America, ginger
has been used mainly in baking;
it is a must for the holidays—from
gingerbread to pumpkin pie to fruit
cakes, and it is also increasingly used
to flavor a variety of other dishes.
Ginger is essential for Asian and
Indian dishes where it is used in
many ways—from Indian curries,
to Japanese marinades, to Chinese
stir-fry. A pinch of ginger is a nice
boost to the flavor of salt-free dishes,
and also a flavorful addition to chicken soup,
sauteed vegetables, and roast chicken or pork.
For flavorful grilled steak, rub ginger, garlic
and black or white pepper on meat, marinate
a few hours before cooking.
Crystallized Ginger
They don’t call it candied ginger for nothing–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.

you are. Add a slice to stock for

and Asian dishes. The flavor

full slice is too much,

China ginger is the finest in the
world. It is virtually fiber-free,
yielding a buttery-soft
powder when ground, and

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.

Mint
Spearmint has a cool mint flavor and is the traditional
cooking mint, used in the Middle East for salads, tabouli
and main dishes, and preferred for English-style lamb
and jellies. Peppermint has a warm and spicy mint flavor
and is the traditional mint used for flavoring candies and
chocolates. Both are a fine addition to tea.
Mural of Flavor blends over a dozen spices and herbs,
creating a wall (hence mural) of flavor so delicious,
there’s no need to add salt. Inspired by the rich and
mouth-watering flavors of the western Mediterranean,
Mural of Flavor is wonderfully versatile. Try it on chicken,

Mustard Seed
Yellow mustard seed is the traditional type sold in grocery
stores, commonly used for pickling, canning and sausage
making. Brown mustard seed is smaller and hotter,
traditional for Asian and African cooking. In India, whole
brown seeds are fried in oil until a popping sound is heard.
This gives the seeds a nutty flavor, important in many
vegetarian dishes. Try whole mustard seeds in barbecue
sauce and rubs, or marinades for grilling. The seeds become
very soft, giving great flavor and an attractive appearance.

Black Peppercorns
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 | summer
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.

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.

A whispered promise during their wedding
dance led Jean and Tom to Wisconsin,
where they've lived more than 30 years.
Jean Tikusis
M
y husband Tom and I were
born and raised in Chicago, with its
variety of native cuisines and family
food traditions separated by ethnic
neighborhoods and parish
boundaries,” says Jean Tikusis of
Helenville, Wisconsin. “Tom
cultivated small vegetable gardens
annually (wherever he could find a
plot of soil) and we always had fresh
tomatoes, corn on the cob,
cucumbers and other vegetables and
herbs for our meals.
“But city life didn’t really agree
with Tom. He longed for a home in
the country—specifically in
Wisconsin where he could grow a
huge garden, fish the inland lake
waters and hunt in the woods. So at
our wedding, during our first dance,
Tom whispered a promise in my ear:
In the next six months he would find
a way to bring me to Wisconsin to
make our home.
“I’m pleased to report that he
kept his promise and we relocated
from Chicago to southeastern
Wisconsin more than 30 years ago.
We now live on a 30-acre hobby farm
in the lake country between Madison
and Milwaukee, and we’ve developed
a few acres into an apple orchard to
Can’t-Be-Beet Potato Salad
support our leisure years. This fall
will mark the first year of apple
production!
“We’ve raised three sons who
continue to live in Wisconsin and
enjoy the country lifestyle too. We
benefit from the fruits of the land
and share our bounty with others by
hosting family reunions, pig roasts,
ice fishing derbies, tree planting
weekends, birthday parties and
talent shows. We have a rich
appreciation for our natural
surroundings and an opportunity to
share with loved ones and others.
We’ve found that one of the most
fun ways to share is with a great
meal and fresh ingredients.
“Cooking always seems to be
important in a large family—so
many mouths to feed! Both my
parents are from large families and
they continued the tradition by
raising six children (my husband is
one of ten!). As the eldest child I
was responsible for helping out in
the kitchen at an early age,
especially at holiday time. Mom
would bring two or three dishes to
pass at parties at my father’s side of
the family and the same for hers.
Helping Mom make Christmas
fudge was my favorite holiday
It may sound a little unusual, and look a little
unusual, but this recipe from Jean will win you over
in one bite. For another picnic favorite from Jean,

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,

Indian Black Tellicherry. Our ground pepper is

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.

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.
*All peppermills come filled with Tellicherry
black peppercorns and salt shakers with
Kosher style flake salt.

M
Edmund Tillison
y dad truly believed in the
value of reaching middle ground,”
recalls John Tillison. “He understood
that there needed to be give and
take in order to move ahead. This
thing that’s going on with teachers
here in Wisconsin — it would have
driven him nuts.”
Two of Edmund Tillison’s
daughters grew up to become
teachers. Both of his sons married
teachers. One of his granddaughters
is a nurse. That’s a lot of serviceoriented jobs in the family. And his
wife, Anne, was a high school
secretary who never looked at her
work as a job, but rather as service to
the community.
“From the time we were very
young, we were going to college,”
says Edmund’s daughter Nancy Van
Valkenburgh, who taught language
arts in middle schools. “Both of my
parents were very insistent about
that. They really wanted us to excel
in school because they didn’t get the
chance. My dad never finished high
school and my mom would have
loved to go to college but couldn’t
afford it.
“I think we became teachers
because when we were growing up in
the Fifties and Sixties teachers were
respected and revered and
appreciated a lot more than they are
now.”
Edmund Tylczynski (the name was
changed before his marriage to
Anne) was a product of the Great
Depression. He was born in 1914,
the third of seven children of Polish
immigrants to Milwaukee. He quit
school after the stock market crash
in 1929 because the family needed
money and there were factory jobs in
Milwaukee for able-bodied young
men.
Ed didn’t mind hard work — it
helped pay bills — and by the time
he made it through the Depression
he had acquired many valuable skills,
not the least of which was an ability
to communicate and work effectively
with people at all levels. “He lived
through the Depression, he saw what
it was like,” says John. “He
understood that people need help
sometimes. I think the Depression
shaped him that way.
“He never complained about
hardship. He always dealt with it
more in a joking way. I remember his
response once when I needed a pair
of basketball shoes: �You should have
seen what it was like back in the
Depression. I had to try out for the
basketball team in my sister’s high
heels and my underwear!’
“Dad never sweated the small
stuff. He never made a lot of money
in his lifetime, but he never
complained about paying taxes, or
welfare, or any of that stuff. His
parents came to this country seeking
a better life, and instilled in him the
importance of everybody pulling
together for the common good, to
build and protect not only the better
life they built, but basic human
freedoms. He worked hard, he was a
union man, and he believed you
need to help other people. His really
was the Greatest Generation.”
After serving in World War II as a
medic on the front lines, Ed
returned home to Milwaukee to
forge a career in manufacturing. His
positive spirit and can-do attitude
made him a valuable worker who
applied himself as a technician,

mechanic, crane builder and
assembler. Even after retiring in 1976
he was brought back as a consultant
to assist in the company’s
globalization efforts. And thus Ed
became a globe-trotter, traveling to
Taiwan, Korea, Venezuela and
Trinidad and Tobago to oversee
crane assemblies.
“It wasn’t just his hands. He really
was a very intelligent person,” says
Nancy. “He was never in
management, he was a union steward
and he worked on the crane floor,
but he must have been very much
appreciated. He was a very friendly
person, he was well spoken and he
could just connect with people.”
While still working their jobs the
Tillisons discovered the beauty of
the Wisconsin Northwoods and
purchased a cottage in Lac du
Flambeau in 1969. Nearly every
summer weekend after that was
spent fishing, cooking out and “just
doing outdoorsy stuff” hours away
from the city. “He’d work in that
factory eight hours a day, five days a
week, and then get in our car at 5
o’clock on Friday and boy we were
up there by 10, 10:30,” says Nancy.
“Thank goodness for drive-thrus.
He knew every shortcut to get to the
lake.”
“Dad loved to fish,
not just catch fish,”
says John. “That guy
could sit out in a
boat for 5 hours and
not get a bite. He
loved being up
there, and he loved
being on the water.
That place changed
all of our lives.”
Ed also loved
food. That fact was
never more evident
than at the cottage, where the day’s
catch of walleye or perch would be
filleted and fried in the skillet, and
more often than not served with Ed’s
Up North Roasted Potatoes to John,
his siblings, cousins and friends.
“And boy was he a great cook with
the fish,” adds Nancy. “We had a
small gas stove and cast iron skillets
and nobody could do fish like him. I
still can’t cook fish like he did.”
But more important than the food
to Ed was the opportunity to gather
with his ever-expanding family. “He
spent time with his kids, that’s just
what he did,” says John. “He always
was a great guy to have around.”
Edmund’s Up North Roasted
Potatoes
This is a favorite from the Northwoods of Wisconsin

it is just as simple and delicious. The perfect

I loved the story of Bill’s grandmother Eva Burns and her Banana
Cake in your Spring 2011 catalog!
My husband requested this cake for
his April 6th birthday and it was delicious! I packed up some leftover
slices and sent it into the Veteran’s
Administration office where he
works the following morning, and
the empty platter and sweet note
was all that was left at the end of
the day.
We love Penzeys products! We
received our first gift certificate
years ago at Christmas from my
husband’s beloved Aunt Annie—an
amazing cook herself.
Sincerely,
—Robin B.
Since a friend brought me into
a Penzeys store in Philadelphia,
my relationship to using spices in
my cooking has really changed!
I’ve started noticing differences in
the quality of the spices I use, and
appreciate the enhancing effects of
the blends you offer (my partner
noticed in horrified alarm that
we are almost out of the Bouquet
Garni, something included in our
last order that we suddenly can no
longer live without). So, thanks.
You’ve actually improved my cooking enjoyment and awareness.
—Nancy A.
I must say, being introduced to
Penzeys a couple of years ago by my
mom is at the top of the list of one
of the greatest blessings my family
has ever received. As a stay-at-home
Mom to little ones, we are forced to
pinch every penny and your spices
are definitely an affordable luxury.
Every recipe I’ve ever tried from
one of your catalogs (and we’ve
tried a lot) has been delicious beyond words and we’ve never been
disappointed by anything made
with your spices. You have inspired
me and given me confidence to
be more creative in the kitchen
and it’s just wonderful. I can’t tell
you how many times I’ve ended up
talking to complete strangers about
Penzeys and have even passed out
your free coupons that I happened
to have in my purse just to get them
in the door to your wonderful
world. I thank you from the bottom
of my heart for what you offer and
it feels good to order from such a
fantastic company with such a big
and kind heart. God bless you guys.
—Stephania L.
I was reading the Penzey Catalog
this evening. And was very impressed with the “A Note From Bill”
column. I am one of those slightly
mediocre cooks. We eat most of our
meals at home, and I cook them.
We have another couple that are
very good friends. The husband is a
retired chef. We have eaten at their
home, and they have eaten at ours.
I once asked him how to make a
specific dish. His comment was that
he could tell me how to make it.
But the best advice he could give
We really want to hear from you!
me was to learn to cook dishes that
used the items in my pantry.
He said each of us has an individual pantry with the herbs, spices,
and various things that we truly
enjoy eating and enjoy cooking
with. He really dislikes TV Chefs
and magazines, etc. because they
require you to go out and purchase
food you would never buy. And
then it sits in your cupboard, never
to be used again.
He said that as I like paprika,
look up dishes that use paprika. See
if any of them appeal to me, and try
a couple. But make sure they use
items I already have in my pantry.
This simple advice took a ton of
pressure off me as a cook. Now I
don’t get frazzled because I have no
idea how to make specific dishes.
I cook what I can cook, that tastes
good and we all like. I cook out of
my pantry.
I think the column is one of the
best I have ever read.
Thanks,
—Gail M.
I was introduced to your spices
several years ago as wedding presents and never looked back. Thank
you for a great product that I am
very happy and
excited to be
sharing with my
now one-yearold son! :)

Calling all Cooks!
W
e 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.
Our 25th birthday gives us a great opportunity to reflect on where
we are coming from -- and where we are going.
We have so much to be grateful for, and a big part of having
wonderful, talented and caring people working with us at Penzeys is the
amazing educations so many received in Wisconsin’s schools. For our
next catalog, our Back to School issue, we’d love to hear from Wisconsin
teachers. Do you have a story about cooking for people important to
you -- and maybe a recipe to share, as well? It’d be great
if it had a connection to a classroom, but we won’t
lower your grade if it doesn’t.
And looking down the road to our Fall
issue, we’d love to hear from teachers

Northwoods Seasoning
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
chipotle pepper.

Northwoods Fire Seasoning
What could be better than two types of Northwoods
Seasoning? Northwoods Fire has the same great flavor as
the original, with the added kick of smoky ground
Chipotle and hot Cayenne red pepper. A wonderful
seasoning for all grilled foods—steaks, fish, chicken and
chops, even grilled vegetables. Hand-mixed from: coarse
flake salt, paprika, ground chipotle pepper, black pepper,
cayenne red pepper, thyme, rosemary and granulated garlic.

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.

pepper, parsley, dill seed, caraway, turmeric, dill weed, bay
leaf, marjoram, thyme, savory, basil and rosemary.
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

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.

banana bread, waffle batter, cheesecake and muffins.
Sprinkle on hot cereal or add to potpourri. To rehydrate:

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.

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.

and herbs, granulated garlic, and paprika.

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

Hungarian-Style Half-Sharp Paprika
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,

“Each student gives 20 hours of
volunteer service and has had the
opportunity to visit Growing Power
or �Will’s Garden’ as we call it. Here
the children learn to plant their
own vegetable garden. Parents also
join in the volunteer effort and can
choose from many opportunities in
our community (to learn more about
Growing Power, visit penzeys.com).
“My family has always stuck together
and we always eat well. We’ve all
learned to cook from the best, my
mom. In summer my siblings take
turns having cook-outs at each others’
homes. We have such a wonderful
time together eating, reminiscing and
maybe playing some cards.
“My parents came to Milwaukee
from Alabama to raise their family.
Each August family and friends join
us in town for a family reunion. We all
bring a dish. You name it, it’s here! I
bring about 20 pounds of potato salad
which my family has been making for
4 generations. I’m teaching Artasia to
make it, so maybe one day she’ll be
able to share it with her kids too.”
Grilled Chicken
Four Generations Potato Salad
Summer time is grilling time, and the aroma of this chicken from Sarah will
have your guests anxiously circling the grill.
This recipe from Sarah has been in the family for quite some time.
Sarah added her own touch with Arizona Dreaming.
1 lb. chicken wings (6-8 wings)
4-6 chicken breasts, bone-in or boneless/skinless
1 12-oz. can of beer
1вЃ„2 Cup teriyaki sauce (low sodium if you can find it)
1 tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
1 tsp. ARIZONA DREAMING
1 tsp. FOX POINT SEASONING

In a large baking pan, combine the beer, teriyaki sauce and SEASONINGS.
Stir to combine. Wash and dry the chicken and trim off any fatty bits.
Add the chicken wings and chicken breasts to the marinade, cover with
aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight. You can also use 2 large bowls
and cover with plastic wrap.
Put the smoked wood chips in a pail of water and soak them for at least 2
hours before putting them on the charcoal. Wrapping loosely in foil and
poking holes in the foil is an easy way to use wood chips. Grill bone-in
chicken breasts over indirect heat for 40 minutes, turning once. Add
chicken wings for the final 25 minutes, turning once. If using boneless/
skinless breasts, start them at the same time as the wings. Watch carefully,
sometimes it only takes 15 minutes to cook boneless/skinless chicken
breasts!

Pork Chop Seasoning
Pork Chop Seasoning has a wonderful smoky flavor—it’s
the best darn blend for pork—from chops to roasts,
baked, broiled or grilled. Start with 1 tsp. per pound,
shake on before cooking. Also great for turkey. For smoky
ribs, rub on heavy, up to 2 tsp. per pound. For a tasty tofu
sandwich, slice tofu, sprinkle heavily with seasoning on
both sides, and cook until golden in a lightly oiled pan
over medium heat for a taste like bacon. Hand-mixed
from: salt, garlic, white pepper, onion, ginger, and natural
hickory smoke flavor.

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

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.
A variation of classic French Vinegar and Oil dressing,
but lighter, perfect for today's salads. Filled with flavorful
French herbs, not too tart, lightly thickened by crushed
brown mustard. Basic recipe for 1 cup dressing: Mix 1-2

in В№/3 cup red wine vinegar and В№/2 cup olive oil,
refrigerate. Hand-mixed from: sugar, brown mustard, salt,

Green Goddess
Salt-free. An old-fashioned, classical style salad dressing,
somewhat like a mild, sweet, herb-filled creamy Italian,
heavy on the basil and dill. This base is not only nice for
green salads, it is great for fresh vegetable dip or as a light,
refreshing alternative to tartar sauce on baked or fried
fish. This base is very good without salt, but salt can be
added to taste (try В№/2 tsp. per cup), or a squeeze of lemon
juice could be added in place of salt. To make one cup of
dressing, mix 1 rounded TB. GREEN GODDESS in 2 TB.
water, let stand 5 minutes. Whisk with 2вЃ„3 - 3вЃ„4 cup regular
or low-fat mayonnaise and 1 TB. vinegar. This dressing will

Beef Soup Base and Seasoning
For rich beef stock use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Beef Base for each
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

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

nice change of pace, just use pork instead of chicken or

Base to 2-3 TB. drippings from pork roast or pork
chops for 2 cups gravy.

For rich seafood stock, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Seafood base for

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,

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.

Sandwich Sprinkle
This blend was created for making homemade
croutons, but along the way it has become the
lunchtime favorite in the Penzeys breakroom for all
types of sandwiches, from crusty subs to tuna salad.
Just shake on, or mix 1 TB. with 1 TB. water, add to В№/4
cup vinegar and В№/3 cup oil, shake, and drizzle on your
favorite sandwich. To make homemade croutons
(great for using up odds and ends of leftover bread):
for each 2 cups of cubed bread (4 regular slices), use 1
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,
and marjoram.

If you only buy one salt this year make it this one. Kosher
Flake salt has a long history and a great taste. The special
shape of the flakes gives this salt the maximum of salt
flavor with the minimum of salt used.
Traditional in bean soup, also nice with grilled chicken,
pork chops, and fish. From Albania.
Flavorful and economical—a sprinkle of our Seasoned
Salt improves the flavor of most every dish. Use in
place of regular salt to season burgers and chicken,
pork chops and fish, eggs, veggies and salads.

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.
Spanish CoupГ© Saffron is the top grade of the
Spanish Saffron crop. Extra hand labor is used to
remove every bit of the yellow saffron style material,
leaving beautiful pure red saffron threads. Spanish
CoupГ© Saffron is a truly excellent crop, especially
nice for the traditional Spanish dishes.

Spanish Superior Saffron is the most widely

Superior Saffron has a bit of the yellow style
material left attached to some of the saffron
stigmas, so it is not quite as strong as Spanish
CoupГ© Saffron.

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.
3 beans #58430 $ 7.65
15 beans #58456 $ 30.19
Mexican Vanilla Beans
Mexican beans, while similar to Madagascar,
have a darker flavor that is perfect for vanilla
liqueur and coffee drinks.

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.

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

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

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.

eing born and raised in the
Milwaukee area has had such an
impact on my life that I think it
would be very difficult to leave,”
says Amy Fogerty, a wife and mother
of three who teaches Spanish
at Pewaukee High School. “My
husband was also born and raised in
the Milwaukee area and this is the
main reason we’ve decided to raise
our three children here.
“We enjoy being able to walk to
a park, go to the zoo and head out
to the beach or lake without having
to drive hours to get there. We have
so many great things right here in
Milwaukee and Wisconsin that we
rarely leave. It really is a great place
to live!
“Cooking has been a part of our
family for as long as I can remember.
Everyone at some point was in the
kitchen making something. Holidays
were an especially special time for
our family. When it was someone’s
birthday they were able to choose
what they wanted for dinner and
also the type of cake. My dad always
almond, lemon and orange extracts on page 19 .
Let me at it!
Jonathan is
excited about
taking his turn in
the kitchen.
made and decorated our cakes.
He would often use cake pans that
were in the shapes of characters or
he would create something on his
own. It was always a wonderful treat
to have our own special cake, and
I have carried on that tradition for
my own children.
“Other holidays like Thanksgiving
were important to my family as
well. My brother Eric was always
in the kitchen making something.
I remember one Thanksgiving he
made over a gallon of homemade
gravy because he got carried away.
We were eating gravy for weeks!
“Our 5-year-old has a severe
allergy to peanuts and tree nuts,
so we prepare almost all of the
food we eat at home. We can’t
just purchase the cookies or other
treats from the bakery because of
fear of contamination, so we bake
a lot at our house, including bread,
muffins, rolls, cookies and donuts.
We make it all! Good thing my
husband and I like to cook!
“We often make treats a family
project. Our 5-year-old can tell
you almost all the ingredients to
make banana bread. Our 3-year-old
daughter knows just how to make
cutout cookies. Everyone in the
family gets into the kitchen at some
time.
“I think my love of cooking
and baking has made me into the
person I am today. It is one of
my forms of stress relief and the
one that I enjoy the most. I enjoy
making things that taste good and
I’m truly happy when someone
really
I’ve created.”

Iowa Brownies
Amy explains, “I call them Iowa brownies because they are a spin on a recipe that came from one of my aunts
in Iowa. My mom is originally from Iowa and most of her siblings and relatives still live there. The movie Field
of Dreams was actually filmed on part of my aunt and uncle’s farm. Anytime we went to Iowa, there was
always a new food to try. Cooking was and still is a big part of our family and since this originated from an
Iowa relative, they were just called Iowa Brownies.”
Brownies:
1 Cup water
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3 TB. COCOA POWDER (Amy uses
DUTCH COCOA)
2 Cups flour
2 Cups sugar
1 TB. baking soda
8 oz. sour cream
2 eggs
Frosting:
1вЃ„2 Cup (1 stick) butter, softened
4 Cups powdered sugar
3 TB. COCOA POWDER (Amy uses DUTCH)
6 TB. milk
For the frosting: Cream the butter until fluffy
and then add the powdered sugar cup by cup
alternating with 2 TB. of milk and 1 TB. of cocoa
until all of the ingredients are added and the
mixture is smooth. Spread the frosting on the
brownies after they have been cooled.

14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
Cup fresh lemon juice (juice of 4-6 lemons)
large egg yolks
tsp. LEMON EXTRACT
tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Cups fresh sugared berries
Cups whipped cream (optional)
Crust: Preheat oven to 375В°. Melt margarine or
butter. Stir in the sugar and CINNAMON. Add the
crushed graham crackers. Toss to mix well. Spread
the mixture into an ungreased, deep dish pie plate.
Press onto the bottom and sides to form a firm,

For the Filling: Reduce the oven heat to 350В°.
Beat together the milk, lemon juice and egg
yolks. The larger amount of juice will increase
the tartness of the dessert. Add the LEMON and
VANILLA EXTRACTS and stir until the mixture
thickens. Pour into the cooled pie crust. Bake at
350° for 18-30 minutes or until stiff. It shouldn’t
move at all when you gently jiggle the oven rack.
Let cool and then place in the refrigerator to chill
thoroughly before cutting. Top with fresh berries
and whipped cream if desired.

parents moved from Memphis,
Tennessee to Milwaukee,” says
Tonya Boyd, who manages the
Penzeys Midtown Center store not
far from where the Penzeys story
began. “Family from my father’s
side was already here and they were
told how great Milwaukee was. Job
opportunities were available and the
cost of living was affordable.
“Soon followed my mother’s
oldest brother and his family, then
eventually more family members
from Memphis. It wasn’t long after
my younger sister was born that my
parents separated, leaving Mom to
raise four children on her own. My
mother was able to finish school and
receive her diploma from Milwaukee
Area Technical College, and then
later as we got older she went back
for her degree in social work.
“Growing up in Milwaukee wasn’t
hard to us as kids, but we knew
at times our mother did struggle,
especially when there wasn’t a full
course meal on the table. With the
help of a college friend who soon
became close as family, incomes were
combined and living became a little
easier.
“I remember all of us going to
the lake and parks for picnics and
cookouts. My mother loved to eat
so she enjoyed cooking and feeding
a crowd. She made sure you left
the table full and with a smile. She
believed that using fresh spices and
herbs was the key to a great-tasting
dish.
“My mother lived life to the fullest.
She loved family and kids, no matter
whose. She kept the family close
traveling back and forth to visit her
mom, siblings and other relatives in
Memphis. It was always nice to see
our grandparents. My grandmother’s
big backyard was where everyone
gathered and grilled on her
homebuilt barbeque pit. Food came
from all over.
“I’m a single mom with six
children, ages 15 to 25, and I never
minded working two jobs like
my mom to give them a decent
upbringing. There’s nothing like
putting smiles on the faces of others,
especially my kids.
“I lost my mom a few years ago
and then in 2009 I lost my job of 10plus years. It was hard, but through
God and the love for my kids I knew
things would get better. Before long
I got an opportunity to become part
of the Penzeys family, where bringing
smiles of fulfillment to everyone is
important, whether it’s being served
across the table or the words and
thoughts in the catalogs.
“My mom always told me there is
more to life than just work, and now
I am able to work just one job and
travel with my family for the first
time. Our latest trip was to Las Vegas
to visit my brother, who is in the Air
Force, and meet his first child. I’m
also trying things I said I’d never do,
like flying and riding a motorcycle
with my true soul mate.
“And of course I love to cook and
host large gatherings, just like my
mom.”

No-Knead Refrigerator Kolache
Pillowy bites of deliciousness. Kolaches are so wonderful there are festivals in their honor across the country.
Marty Gustafson shares this recipe with us along with her Campfire Chai Tea, which can be found on page 17.
Poppy Seed Filling:
2 Cups WHOLE BLUE POPPY SEED
1вЃ„2 Cup sugar
1вЃ„2 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
1вЃ„4 tsp. PURE ALMOND EXTRACT
1 Cup milk
Dough:
1 pkg. dry yeast (21/2 tsp.)
1вЃ„2 Cup warm water
1вЃ„4 Cup + 1 tsp. sugar, divided
4 Cups flour
1вЃ„2 Cup shortening
1вЃ„2 Cup butter (1 stick)
1 tsp. salt
1 Cup milk
4 egg yolks
Topping:
3 TB. sugar
3 TB. butter
2 TB. flour
The day before you are going to make the
kolache, prepare the dough and the filling.
For the dough: Combine the yeast with the warm
water and 1 tsp. of sugar. Stir until dissolved. Let
rise for 10 minutes, until bubbly. In a separate
bowl, combine the flour, shortening, butter and
salt with a pastry blender and set aside. In a small
bowl, combine the milk, remaining sugar and
egg yolks. Beat well and then add to the yeast
mixture. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour
mixture, folding until all of the flour is absorbed.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and shape
into a ball. Place in a greased bowl and let rise in
the fridge overnight.
For the filling: Mix everything in a small saucepan,
bring to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring
regularly. Cook 10 minutes, remove from heat, let
cool and store, covered, in the fridge overnight.
If desired, you can “grind” the poppy seeds in a
blender first, but they aren’t quite as sweet this
way, and by preparing the filling the day before,
the poppy seed filling is quite soft, even though
they are whole.
When you are ready to bake, divide the dough
into 4 pieces and roll each piece into a roll. Cut
each roll into 12 pieces, rolling each piece into a
ball. Place on greased baking sheets, cover, and
let rise until doubled—roughly an hour in a warm
place.
Preheat oven to 375В°. Prepare the topping by
combining the sugar, butter and flour and mixing
until crumbly. Once the rolls have risen, depress
the centers of each and fill with the poppy
seed filling. Sprinkle with streusel and bake at
375В° for 10-12 minutes. The kolaches should
just be starting to turn color, not even to gold
and certainly not brown! Serve as soon as cool
enough to eat—yum!

Matt and Jamie soak up the beautiful
scenery on Cape Manzamo in Okinawa
during their honeymoon.
Jamie Kiefer
I
was born and raised in
Milwaukee so this really is home to
me,” says 28-year-old Jamie Kiefer. “I
love that it is a good-sized city, not too
big and not too small. We’re a place
that holds strong traditions, and that
is evident in our neighborhoods,
from long-time locally owned family
businesses to historical buildings
around the city, and also the many
arts and music offerings. We may be a
moderately-sized city, but we have a lot
to offer!
I spent lots of time discovering
many different parts of the city; I feel
like I “grew up” all over Milwaukee.
My grandparents loved to take us to
different areas and events, like the
Nutcracker Ballet at Christmastime,
so my sister and I were really lucky
to experience many different places
from a young age.
“My husband Matt works for the
county, and I work mornings as a
teacher’s assistant for Milwaukee
Public Schools and evenings and
weekends for a coffee roaster in
Bay View where we live. We’ve been
married 2 years and we’re trying to
save money for a house. One of our
goals in order to do that is to not dine
out as much.
“I have always had a huge love
of baking. When I lived with my
parents I would bake sometimes, but
I think moving out into my own place
really got me into cooking because
I needed to eat! Matt and I enjoy
food from different cultures. Our
favorite is a pineapple fried rice that
we recreated based on a meal we had
on our honeymoon in Japan, the only
overseas trip we’ve ever taken—it was
amazing. Baking is still my first love
and I try to bake something at least
once a week.
“I really like it that Wisconsin
and Milwaukee still have farms and
farmers markets for fresh produce,
dairy, meat and cheese, local bakeries
and breweries. Foodwise, I am really
proud to come from a state with so
many great offerings.
“People who live here take pride
in our roots and that shows through
in how we do our jobs, care for our
families, and cook our foods. And we
continue to build on these wonderful
traditions.”
Pineapple Fried Rice
Jamie shares, “This recipe is a re-creation of a dish
we had on our honeymoon in Japan. We stopped
at a great Polynesian themed restaurant in Tokyo
called �Tiki Tiki.’ I am a huge tiki enthusiast and we
had a difficult time finding the restaurant. We asked
probably six people in and around the Shinjuku train
station, and nobody knew the restaurant we were
talking about. Then we started walking along the
street sadly giving up hope on finding the elusive
restaurant. I turned around and looked up and
randomly saw the tiny �Tiki Tiki’ sign!! It was meant
to be.”
2 Cups cooked rice
1 whole pineapple
2 eggs, beaten
1вЃ„2 Cup diced carrot
1вЃ„2 Cup fresh/frozen peas
1-2 TB. sesame oil
1-2 tsp. rice wine
1-2 TB. reserved pineapple juice
1вЃ„2 tsp. POWDERED GINGER
1 TB. TRINIDAD LEMON-GARLIC MARINADE
1TB. WHOLE BLACK SESAME SEEDS for
garnish
Shrimp Skewers:
1 lb. medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
2-3 TB. pineapple juice
1 tsp. TRINIDAD LEMON-GARLIC MARINADE
12 skewers
While the rice is cooking, prepare the pineapple
“bowls.” Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise.
Carefully remove as much fruit from the pineapple
as possible and cut it into 1вЃ„2-inch chunks. Try to
reserve at least 5 TB. of the pineapple juice.
Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Drizzle the eggs into the skillet and scramble.
Remove from heat and set aside.
In a 12-inch skillet, heat the sesame oil for a couple
minutes over medium heat. Add the cooked rice,
peas, carrots and scrambled eggs. Cook for about
3-4 minutes, allowing the rice to rest at times to
form a nice, golden brown “fried” crust. Add the
pineapple chunks, rice wine, 2 TB. of the reserved
pineapple juice, GINGER and TRINIDAD. Stir fry for
an additional 3-5 minutes. You may want to add
small amounts of water during cooking to help
keep the rice from drying out. When the rice has
nice crispy parts and is the desired consistency,
remove from heat. Divide the rice between the
two pineapple bowls, sprinkle with BLACK SESAME
SEEDS and serve.
For the shrimp, coat with pineapple juice and
TRINIDAD LEMON-GARLIC MARINADE as soon as
you have enough juice. Thread onto skewers while
the rice is cooking. Grill or pan sear over high heat
2-3 minutes per side.

Looking at what is going on in Wisconsin today maybe it was not just the
place that Penzeys Spices started that eased our growth, but maybe it was the
time as well.
The first few years after starting the business I was lucky enough to
become an annual regular at the Tillison family cottage Up North where
I was blessed to enjoy the experience that was Edmund Tillison (see his
story page 30.) Edmund’s life was amazing but in many ways typical of
his time: surviving the Great Depression, answering the call for medic
across North Africa and up the boot of Italy in WWII, being a proud
member of the machinist union, and raising a family that understood
the importance of giving back, with just about all his kids either
becoming teachers or marrying one.
There was a wisdom to Edmund and his generation that we are
missing today. Something about the Depression, then the war, then
trying to make a life after all of that left them so much more aware of
how we depend on each other, of how many had sacrificed so much
to give them the opportunity for a better life. They understood they
owed a debt to those who came before them and repaid that debt by
building a better world for those coming after them.
In many ways Penzeys Spices owes much of its success to coming
in the wake of the greatest generation and the better world they
created for all of us. With the patriotism of their day so tied to
sacrifice it is hard to imagine they would think kindly of our new
patriotism of funding never-ending tax cuts by closing schools and
shutting our doors to those in need. And knowing Edmund, it’s a safe bet
that on hearing the government was reducing the rights of workers at the
very time those rights were needed most his comments would not be saltfree.
Edmund has me thinking about how even more than most I am in debt to
those who came before me. Am I really doing my part? If a quarter century
from now some 22-year-old fresh out of the public schools gets the notion
to start a business, what will be their chances of success if we don’t honestly
fund education or appreciate teachers for the difficult and extremely
important job they do? Might be time to get to work.
Thanks for reading,

Hearty Potato Vinaigrette Salad
Ed was really good at a lot of things including seasoning with individual spices. He had probably been
making this dish for 5 decades by the time he first
made it for me. It was the combination of spices and
herbs he used here that were the inspiration for our
Northwoods Seasoning. Simple yet wonderful, it can
be served as a side dish, or it makes a great meal by
itself, and like most Depression era meals it costs next
to nothing to make. Ed’s original measurements from
shot glasses are converted here to tablespoons.
10-12 medium potatoes
4-6 eggs
1
head lettuce or equivalent amount
of greens
4
TB white vinegar
2
TB vegetable oil
See spice Index on page 61
1
4
4
TB sugar
TB real Wisconsin butter or olive oil
tsp. NORTHWOODS SEASONING
Traditionally done with peeled potatoes, skins can
be left on if well scrubbed. Cut potatoes into approximately 3вЃ„4-inch pieces and cook in boiling water until cooked through, about 10 minutes. At the
same time hard-boil the eggs. An easy method is to
place eggs in a pan of cool water on medium high
heat. When water comes to a boil, cover, remove
from heat and let stand 18-20 minutes, rinse and
peel. Clean and tear lettuce or greens into bite-size
pieces. Mix vinegar, oil and sugar, and toss with the
lettuce. Divide the lettuce among 4 serving plates.
Drain potatoes and lightly break potato cubes
with a fork, but don’t mash completely, then place
equal amounts on the lettuce beds. Add 1 TB. fresh
butter, in small pats, to each serving; you can substitute olive oil if you feel you must. Slice eggs and
arrange attractively across the top of the potatoes.
Sprinkle 1 tsp. NORTHWOODS SEASONING across
the top of each serving, and serve while still warm.
Feeds four at a very reasonable cost.
