O
ur years of
selling spices have taught us that
cooking is not a one size fits all
world: far from it. We’ve learned
the true beauty of cooking lies in
the incredible diversity of the
people who cook, and in the
incredible variety of the food they
cook. Those years have also taught
us for all of our differences, for the
tremendous variety of what we
cook, people who cook have
something in common. They care
enough to make the lives of those
around them better. The research
shows that people who share
dinner together at the kitchen
table go on to share a brighter
future. A brighter future made
possible by people with the spirit
to build it one meal at a time. It is
this spirit we celebrate, this spirit
we hope to spread, this spirit that
makes all who cook ONE. Through
our pages we hope to share the
greater family of human kindness
that we’ve found all cooks belong
to. Come along and join us.
Be ONE.
2011 marks the 25th anniversary of Penzeys—so for this, our silver anniversary
year, our plan is to make each issue of the catalog a little more reflective of the stories that make up our past, and the ideas we hope will carry us into the future. For
this issue we are focusing on an idea, and a very simple one at that, but one that I
think may be most important to the future of cooking.
The idea is: when cooking, please, please, please be yourself.
I have what I’ve come to believe is a unique affliction. It comes from a lifetime
of being connected to the wonderfulness of people who cook, while at the same
time being exposed to the totally soulless way cooking is portrayed in the cooking
media world of books, magazines, newspapers and TV cooking shows. I realize I
am, for better or worse, the only person on the planet who is actually afflicted with
the belief that why we cook is exactly opposite, exactly 180 degrees different from
the values on display in virtually all of those books, magazines, newspapers and TV
cooking shows.
For decades this affliction caused me to act out in the strangest of ways any
time anyone brought up what they saw or read in any of the traditional food media. But in the last few years I have begun to believe that maybe there is a way to
use the combination of recipes, photos and stories to express what is actually valuable about cooking, and how the kindness of cooking has the power to transform
our lives.
As much as I have given up on being able to convince you that you are most
likely already a more versatile cook than most celebrity chefs, or that cooking
has nothing to do with living a “super luxury lifestyle,” or ultimately that people
who don’t understand the importance of being home most nights to cook for the
people they care about probably shouldn’t be your cooking role models, I still hold
out hope for the future of cooking and the richness cooking brings to our lives.
My hope is that through the stories of actual Penzeys customers, told so
thoughtfully by our gifted Penzeys staff writers, Jim Smith and Lani Haag, we
might be able to convince you that you, and the people you cook for, are the
people who really matter. From my experience, to the lifetime cook there simply
is no one “right way” to hold a knife or cook a chicken breast. That in the end, for
cooking, there is no “one way” cooking is supposed to be. There is only you and
those you cook for. If your cooking can make them happy, then cooking is alive and
well.
Be Yourself. Let your cooking celebrate your life.

Arizona Dreaming
How much should I buy?
A good guideline is to buy a one
year’s supply of herbs or ground spices,
and a one to two year supply of whole
spices. The government’s guideline for
freshness dating is four years for whole
spices and two years for ground. Some
people say six months is the longest
spices should be stored, but most spices
are harvested only once a year, so it does
not make sense to discard them every six
months. On the other hand, two years
is too long to store finely powdered
spices. Each spice contains hundreds
of flavor components. It is the quantity
and balance of these components that
determines the quality of the spice. These
flavor components will dissipate at
different rates. A top quality spice may be
better at two years old than a low quality
spice at two months. When in doubt
about a spice, just smell it. If it smells
strong and spicy, use it. If not, toss it.
How should I store them?
Spices must be stored properly to
maintain strong, fresh flavor. Heat, light,
moisture and air all speed the loss of
flavor and color. Glass or barrier plastic
containers (such as those we use at
Penzeys) are very good. DO NOT store
your spices near a heat source: on top
of the stove, dishwasher, refrigerator or
microwave, or near the sink or a heating
vent. The best way to avoid light is to put
the spices inside a cupboard or a drawer.
If an open spice rack is being used, place
it out of direct sunlight.
Some folks say that all spices should
be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer.
Whole, crushed and ground chili peppers
(including paprika, as well as sesame
seed and poppy seed) will stay fresh and
colorful longer in cool storage, especially
in the Summer months. Other than vanilla
beans and extract, the flavor of spices
will not be damaged by cold. The only
problem with spices being stored in the
fridge is that they tend to be used less (out
of sight, out of mind). So we recommend
keeping smaller quantities of spices out
in the cooking area and larger backup
supplies in the refrigerator or freezer.
See spice Index on page 61

(dissolved in a bit of cool water) per cup. Push food to one

potatoes and salad dressing. Hand-mixed from:
Romano cheese [made from sheep's and cow's milk,

Whether you are baking cookies or just heating oatmeal,
Baking Spice makes it easy to add delicious flavor.
Sprinkle on hot cereals, or add to pancake batter, В№/4 tsp.
in 2 cups. Add 1 tsp. to box mixes for cake or brownies. Try
it in muffins, coffee cakes, pies, and banana bread. Add up
the spices your recipe calls for and use the same amount
of Baking Spice instead. Hand-mixed from: Ceylon & China
cinnamon, anise, allspice, mace, cardamom.
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.

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.

Bay Leaves
Turkish bay leaves are the best in the world. Though not
as strong as the California variety, they have a natural
depth of flavor that the California bay leaves can’t hope to
match. Bay leaves grow wild on the hilly mountains of
western Turkey in the area around Izmir (Smyrna). The
flavor of bay leaves is perfect for adding to roast pork or
chicken, pot roast, turkey or ham, use 2-3 leaves and
remove before serving. Bay leaves are also perfect for
spaghetti sauce and chicken soup, use 2 per quart. A
surprising fact is that bay leaves improve the flavor of
salt-free dishes with their rich flavor. Note: bay leaves are
very light (8 ounces by weight equals one gallon by
volume).

1вЃ„2 Cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2 oz.)

Make the yogurt sauce first. Put the yogurt in a
bowl. Rub the DILL WEED between your hands,
over the bowl, so that the dill is broken up and
releases its flavor. Add the cucumber and mix well.
Add salt and mix. Taste and add more DILL and salt
as desired. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Combine the steak, lemon juice, OREGANO,
PEPPER and GARLIC in a zip-top bag or other
closed container. Marinate for 10-30 minutes.
Pre-heat grill while steak is marinating. Remove
the steak from the bag and discard the marinade.
Grill the steak to desired degree of doneness;
3-4 minutes per side over high heat is a rough
estimate for medium-rare. Remove from the grill
and let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
While the steak is standing, fill each pita half with
a few heaping spoonfuls of yogurt sauce, feta
cheese, a bunch of arugula and tomato slices. Slice
the steak diagonally across the grain into thin
slices. Add steak to the pitas and serve.

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.

California-Style Seasoned Pepper
California Seasoned Pepper is one of our oldest and
most popular salt free seasonings. The robust flavor of
red and green bell peppers and black pepper together
seasons fully without salt. California Seasoned Pepper is
perfect for meat and poultry, especially grilled or broiled
steak, hamburgers, pork chops or chicken, rub on 1 tsp.
per pound before cooking. Add a bit to gravy, stew, or a
roast to combat blandness. Hand-mixed from: Tellicherry
black pepper, red and green bell pepper, onion, garlic.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Jennifer turns almost any occasion into a
memorable cooking experience.
Jennifer VonGroven
I
made the decision to go back
to school after losing my job,” says
Jennifer VonGroven of St. Paul,
Minnesota. “I always said that if I
didn’t like what I was doing or
found myself in position to go back
to school I would study nursing. So
I took a negative situation and
made it a positive, and I’m so very
happy that I did.”
Jennifer, who studied business
and Spanish in college, worked in
the business world for 10 years
before making her career change.
“I have calluses on my fingers from
taking so many notes! I have about
two years left of the program before
I have my RN. At this time I’m
planning to work in a hospital.
Trauma, emergency, ICU, neonatal
or hospice are my areas of interest.”
Nursing school is challenging,
yet Jennifer finds time for two of
her passions: music and cooking.
She sings and plays guitar in a band
that performs at clubs in the St.
Paul area, and she is forever
tinkering with recipes and
discovering new dishes. If there
isn’t a special occasion she’ll
declare one.
“I love cooking for traditional
holidays such as Thanksgiving or
New Year’s, but I prefer to make up
my own meals for events such as
Come Over and See My Haircut Day or
Zach Got a Raise So We Need to
Celebrate. I cook for anyone who is
willing to sit at my table.”
Jennifer grew up in La Crosse,
Wisconsin (“what a great hometown
it is!”), eating traditional American
meals like “good old hot dishes, pork
chops, mashed potatoes ­– each meal
had a protein, a starch and a
vegetable.” Her cooking horizons
expanded while living in Mexico to
study Spanish.
“After the semester was done I
lived in a hut on the Pacific way
down south in Oaxaca, working at a
little open-air restaurant on the
beach and living life. It is here I
started learning about cooking with
fresh ingredients and understanding
a completely different way of life
from which I was raised.”
Today Jennifer cooks “Mexican,
Italian, Thai and everything in
between, using whatever is in my
cupboard to make a meal. I love
Penzeys Spices and when my family
comes to town we make a special trip
down to Grand Avenue to pick up
more spices and of course to get ice
cream (even in the winter!).”
Jennifer’s motto: “Laughter is a
must every day!”
Fabulous French Toast
Jennifer writes, “Treat yourself with the warm
spices from pumpkin pie combined with the fresh
start of a new day. This French toast is crispy and
mouthwatering on the outside, warm and soft on
the inside. Surprise your breakfast guests with this
new twist on an old favorite.”

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add
enough butter to coat the bottom of the pan.
In a wide, shallow bowl, combine the eggs,
milk, SPICES, salt and VANILLA. Mix well. Soak
both sides of the bread slices in the mixture and
place in the skillet. Cook each side until golden
brown, flipping only once, 2-4 minutes per side,
depending on heat and thickness of bread. If you
like, slip a little extra butter under the slice while
flipping to ensure both sides brown evenly. Serve
immediately with butter and syrup. Or, you can
top with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Spread on cream cheese instead of butter if you
really want to jazz it up.

Apple Shortbread Crisp
Stephen writes, “My dad loves shortbread. He also
loves apple pie. Combine the two? Amazingness.”
Shortbread:
2 Cups flour
1 Cup butter, chilled and sliced into pieces
(2 sticks)
1вЃ„2 tsp. baking powder
1вЃ„4 tsp. salt,
1вЃ„4 tsp. GROUND NUTMEG
Apple Filling:
6 Cups sliced apples (about 7 medium)
1вЃ„2 Cup sugar
2-3 tsp. CINNAMON
1вЃ„2 tsp. GROUND NUTMEG
Crumb Topping:
1 Cup oats (old-fashioned or quick cook)
1 Cup whole wheat flour
1вЃ„2 Cup softened butter (1 stick)
1 Cup sugar
2 tsp. CINNAMON
Preheat oven to 400В°. In a large bowl, combine
the shortbread ingredients. Using two forks or
your hands, work the mixture until it resembles
pea-sized crumbs. Press into an ungreased 9x13
pan. Poke the shortbread with a fork several
times throughout. Place in the oven for 15
minutes.
While the shortbread is baking, peel, core
and slice the apples. Combine with the sugar,
CINNAMON and NUTMEG. Set aside.
After 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350В° and remove
the shortbread from the oven. In a medium bowl,
combine the ingredients for the crumb topping.
Pour the apples over the shortbread. Sprinkle
the crumb topping over the apples and spread
evenly. Place back in the oven and bake until the
sides of the crumb topping begin to brown and
the apples are soft, 35-45 minutes.

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.

Glazed Ham
Old-fashioned, hearty smoked ham makes a wonderful meal for a holiday dinner or a large gathering. Bone-in
hams taste best, and the ham bone makes wonderful stock for split pea or bean soup.
1 smoked, bone-in ham
15-30WHOLE CLOVES (we like CEYLON CLOVES
for this recipe, because of their good looks
and sweet flavor)
2 TURKISH BAY LEAVES
Glaze:
2вЃ„3 Cup brown sugar
1 TB. CRUSHED BROWN MUSTARD SEED
2 tsp. REGULAR MUSTARD POWDER
1 tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
1 pinch GROUND CLOVES
1вЃ„4 Cup water
Preheat the oven to 325Лљ. Remove the netting
covering the ham and scrub under running water.
Stud with as many cloves as desired. This is easiest
if you poke the ham with the tip of a knife and
slide the clove in. That way it is easier to not break
the head of the clove! Place on a rack in a roasting
pan. Put BAY LEAVES on top. Place in the oven
and roast for 12-14 minutes per lb. (to an internal
temperature of 120Лљ). This will take 2-3 hours for a
larger ham. Remove the ham from the oven and
raise the temperature to 425Лљ. Whisk together the
glaze ingredients, brush over the ham to coat.
Return to the oven and cook 10-15 minutes until
the glaze has formed a shiny coating. Remove from
oven, let stand 10-15 minutes (a ham can wait
quite a bit if it has to). Remove excess fat, carve into
thin slices and serve.
Prep. time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 2 hours plus–depending on the size

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,

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.

saffron in every 100 lbs. of curry powder. Add glorious
color and flavor to chicken and seafood curry. For rice,

Rogan Josh Seasoning
Just a little spicy. This version of the popular red lamb
stew comes from the state of Rajasthan, known for its
hilly deserts and fierce, yet chivalrous warriors. While
Rogan Josh can be made with beef, it is traditional and
better made with lamb. This blend is a great example
of how a crafty seasoning can change the stronger
flavor of lamb (or in India, mutton or goat) into a meal
far more delicious than plain old beef. Some blends are
interesting–this blend is delicious. For the true Jaipur
Palace experience, use the full 2 TB. seasoning per
pound, plus extra cayenne and cardamom. Either way
you make it, don't plan on leftovers. Brown 2 lb. lamb
or beef cubes in 4 TB. oil, remove. Brown 1 large
minced onion, add 2-4 TB. Rogan Josh, 1 tsp. salt, stir.
Add meat plus 1 cup water and В№/2 cup yogurt. Cook
1-2 hrs. over low heat till lamb is tender and sauce
thick. Hand-mixed from: paprika, garlic, ginger, cumin,
coriander, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom,
cloves, saffron.

SatГ© Seasoning
Of all the regional dishes of Indonesia, satГ© is probably
the best known and most enjoyed the world over.
What could be better than meat on a stick? Lamb is the
meat of choice for skewers in Indonesia, but chicken
and beef are equally popular here in the US. SatГ©
makes a great appetizer or a wonderful meal with plain
rice or Nasi Goreng (fried rice). Also perfect for Ayam
Goreng (fried chicken). SatГ© Seasoning is great for light
meals such as boneless/skinless chicken and fish fillets.
Sprinkle on heavily, 2-3 tsp. per lb. Hand-mixed from:
salt, brown sugar, garlic, white onion, coriander, shallots,
ginger, turmeric, paprika, Ancho pepper, galangal,
cayenne, lemon grass.

nice for simple chicken curry. For baked chicken or fish,
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

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.

Indian-Spiced Grilled Chicken
The combination of the spicy chicken and the cool

be sure to rub some of the spice rub under the
skin. You may not need all of the spice mix. Grill,
covered, over low or indirect heat, about 20

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.

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).

Gingersnap Cookies
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.

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

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 | early 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.

vegetables and seafood. Dried green peppercorns
can be ground in a peppermill like black peppercorns
or crushed between your fingers. From India.

Wendy and her
husband Alberto
have been making
friends in their new
home and both love
learning about real
Mexican foods and
customs.
Wendy Pacheco
I
t was a bit scary, but I do not
regret it at all,” says Wendy Pacheco
from her new home in San Miguel
de Allende, Mexico.
“Both my parents passed away
when they were relatively young.
Since that time, I began thinking
about my increasingly hectic lifestyle
and the lack of time I had for my
family.
“As the years went by, both my
husband Alberto and I began talking
about reordering our priorities. We
had visited Mexico several times and
I was always sad to leave, so when our
kids finished college we decided to
check things out. We both fell in
love with San Miguel and within four
months sold our home in Virginia
and bought our new home in the
central highlands of Mexico.
“San Miguel is a beautiful colonial
center with buildings from the 17th
and 18th centuries. It offers lots of
art and culture and every day can be
an adventure.
“I think I enjoy the people most.
They are warm and open and have
an extremely good sense of humor.
I like the closeness of the families
here and how the older people are
respected and taken care of. I love
the food and the more laid-back
approach to life. As a Type A
personality I’m not quite there yet,
but
I’m learning.
“At first there were many things
I could not find here, like premixed
chili powder. It frustrated me, but it
has also made me a more creative
cook. At first I simply did not make
recipes with chili powder, but then
after a period of pouting, I decided
to look at the ingredient list and
began experimenting.
“The Bajio, where San Miguel is
located, is called the �bread basket of
Mexico.’ The climate here provides
several growing seasons, so fresh fruit
and vegetables abound. We’re trying
many new foods, I’m learning how to
accent its flavor and we’re eating so
much healthier.
“There are many farms and tiny
stores which we enjoy walking to as
we explore this new culture we’re
living in. On Tuesdays, there is an
open-air market or tianguis which
dates back to the pre-Hispanic
period. It sells everything from
produce to meat to flowers to shoes.
This is a true bazaar in every sense of
the word. It is lively and very
colorful.
“The kitchen is and always has
been the center of our home. We
like to explore new foods and try
new recipes. My husband is excited
about exploring his inner cook and
now makes meals on a regular basis.
“I think eating and cooking is
about more than nourishment. It is a
symbol of culture, community,
family, friends, celebration and love.
And when I taste something great, I
always ask for the recipe!”

Peyton’s Delicious Chicken
This recipe from Peyton makes plain grilled chicken
truly incredible, and the sauce adds a lot of extra zip.
4 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (usually a
little over a pound); bone-in breasts can
be used, just up the cooking time
1 TB. THYME
1 TB. OREGANO
1 TB. GROUND CUMIN
1 TB. HUNGARIAN-STYLE SWEET PAPRIKA
1вЃ„4 tsp. GRANULATED GARLIC POWDER
1вЃ„2 tsp. 4/S or SEASONED SALT
1вЃ„2 tsp. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
White Sauce:
11вЃ„4 Cups mayonnaise
1вЃ„4 Cup white vinegar
1вЃ„4 tsp. PENZEYS MINCED GARLIC
1 TB. PENZEYS FRESHLY GROUND PEPPER
1вЃ„4 tsp. CAYENNE PEPPER
1 TB. spicy coarse brown mustard
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. NATURAL WASABI POWDER, more
or less to taste
Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Combine all of the
SPICES and mix well. Rub the mixture all over the
chicken. You don’t need to use all the spice mix.
Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours to let the flavors
meld.
Meanwhile, mix together the white sauce
ingredients until well blended. Peyton comments,
“This is really an instance where you mix to taste. I
don’t think my proportions have ever been exactly
the same.” Cover and chill at least 2 hours, but the
longer the better.
Once the chicken has been marinating long enough,
heat the grill to between 350 and 400В°. Grill the
chicken, covered, for 10-15 minutes on each side or
until a meat thermometer registers 165В°. If desired, it
is a nice touch to baste on some of the white sauce
during cooking (although a bit messy). Serve with
more sauce on the side.
Prep. time: 10 minutes plus marinating time

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.

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.

Four Peppercorn Blend
Mixture of Tellicherry black and Mysore green
peppercorns from India, white peppercorns from
Sarawak, and the rare pink peppercorns from the
French island of Reunion. Adds festive color and
flavor to any dish where one would use freshly
ground pepper. This blend also looks nice in the
clear, acrylic style peppermills.

Bursting with the flavor of rich shallots and

vegetables, sauteed boneless chicken breast and
pork or veal cutlets. Just sprinkle on В№/2 -1 tsp. per
pound, dust with a bit of flour and sautГ© in a small
amount of olive oil. Store in the refrigerator in the
summer months to prevent clumping. Hand-mixed
from: coarse salt, Tellicherry black pepper, shallots,
tarragon and bay leaves.

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

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

Joy and husband Tim are excited about sharing
healthier meals with others.
Joy Mandel
For health reasons my husband
Tim and I have moved to a more
plant-based diet,” says Joy Mandel of
Baltimore, Maryland. “It has been
going great. I really enjoy exploring
new recipes and new foods.
“My sister Hilary Smith has been a
vegetarian for 40 years and is a
fantastic cook so we have eaten her
food over the years and loved it. She
is my inspiration. I have been
cooking vegetarian meals for a long
time, but just recently gave up meat
completely for health reasons. My
cholesterol went down 50 points in 6
weeks.
“Some people complain that
vegetarian diets are so restrictive
and, yes, they can be somewhat
restrictive. But on the other hand
there is a wealth of wonderful, good
food that you can prepare. It’s just so
important that we eat healthier
meals. My friends have been
wonderfully supportive and are more
than willing to eat my mostly vegan
meals.
“Our diet has definitely led to
more food explorations. I find that
different ethnic cuisines are much
more accommodating to this way of
eating than the typical American
meat-based, fried everything diet!
Indian, Asian, Mexican—all have
been great.”
Joy is a social worker who
currently works part-time in a
hospital emergency room dealing
with psychiatric emergencies. “There
is definitely satisfaction in helping
folks,” she says. “There are times
when if it’s appropriate for the
patient, I can spend some time with
them and let them talk about their
issues. Often just getting things off
their chests is helpful.”
Joy is also involved at her
synagogue. “Many congregations in
the Baltimore area cook for one of
our food banks/soup kitchens,
usually once a month. They have
provided the recipes and we just
make the meals, freeze them and
deliver them. They are also starting
to work at the kitchen so my
husband and I are going to do that.
“One of the main pillars of
Judaism is �tikkun olam’ which in
Hebrew means repairing the world.
There’s where I find the most
meaning. A friend and I head up a
committee of folks who prepare
meals for congregants who are
experiencing either illness in the
family, just had a new baby or any
other circumstance where they need
some help. We do what we can. It
makes me feel like I am doing my
part to repair the world on an
individual scale.”
Black Bean Quinoa Salad
If you’ve never tried quinoa, be sure to make this
recipe from Joy. It is a great introduction to the
super-healthy, quick-cooking grain.

My mom saw the Penzeys “Love

thought of my fiancГ© (sometimes
they don’t get along so well). She
knows that is one of his philosophies and got it for him. It brought
them a little closer.

I must tell you that I spent 21
years trying to find my daughter
the perfect gift. Often I was close,
but no cigar. A few years back I
purchased her the “Two Hearts
Gift Crate.” My mind was set on
starting her out on the adventure
of great foods prepared with love
and creativity. I scored!! She was
thrilled with her selection of spices
and seasonings and she has continued to use Penzeys. Last week she
pulled out the secret to her great
chili. Lo and behold, there was her
bag of Chili 3000. I’m thinking we
are starting on another generation
of Penzeys believers in our family.
I am currently deployed to
Afghanistan and my parents make
sure to send me Penzeys spices
and Penzeys catalogs in my care
packages! I love the Penzeys cinnamon blend in my oatmeal in the
morning, and when I’m running
convoys, having seasoning mixes to add to my
pouched fish makes all
the difference! When
you’re far from home
having flavors you love
nearby offers such comfort. One of the things
I’m looking forward to most when
I get back to the states is doing a
major shopping trip to Penzeys!
Thank you for making products
that are continuously amazing.
Best wishes,
—Rebecca H.
Aloha from Kapaa, Kauai, Hawaii.
When we pulled into the shopping mall yesterday I spotted the
Penzey bumper sticker “Love People, Cook them tasty food” on one
of the local vehicles. Since we are
visiting from Alaska it really made
me realize that you have reached so
many people with your message.
My best friend Carol and I ventured out to your Woodmere store
on Cleveland’s east side this morning, only to find they were packing
up and moving. We fully expected
to be turned away and asked to
come back to the new location.
However, one of the gentlemen
asked us what we were looking for
and invited us in. We were flabbergasted when they stopped what
THEY were doing so they could
tend to OUR needs (Yes, they let
us in even though they were busy
packing). WOW! As we left, thanking everyone, we were told �You are
what makes us stay alive.’ I have
exposed many friends and family
(including most recently, Carol) to
Penzeys Spices, of which my family
has been a loyal customer for about
15 years. We are all grateful for all
that you do.
Thank you
Sypen families

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

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

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.

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

Northwoods Seasoning
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.

Seasoning? Northwoods Fire has the same great flavor as

Chipotle and hot Cayenne red pepper. A wonderful

chops, even grilled vegetables. Hand-mixed from: coarse

Nutmeg
Both Grenadian and East Indian ground nutmeg are easy
to use and flavorful. Whole nutmeg are very large, about 80
per lb. (5-6 nutmeg per oz.), making them easier to grate by
hand. Ten seconds of rubbing on a small-holed grater will
yield В№/2 tsp. of fresh, flavorful nutmeg. Grenada in the West
Indies grows some of the finest nutmeg in the world. When
using Grenadian nutmeg, use ВІ/3 of what the recipe calls for,
it is very potent. Nutmeg is a must for BBQ sauce. In Europe,
nutmeg is used atop most bakery and hot chocolate.

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.

Parsley is America’s favorite herb. Sweet and rich, it brings out the flavor

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,

Penzeys spices | early summer
Fran enjoys teaching her daughter-in-law
Lynette how to make her favorite cake.
Now, who has the forks?
Fran Timme
M
y great-grandmother, Opal
Linam, always taught me that a
recipe is just a suggestion. Play with
it and make it your own. I try to do
that as much as possible. Sometimes
it works and sometimes it doesn’t,
but it’s always fun trying,” says Fran
Timme of Phoenix, Arizona.
“My great-grandmother taught
me how to cook. She had an old
wood-burning stove and lots of cast
iron cookware. I remember I was
five years old, standing on a chair,
cooking my first meal of bacon and
eggs. I learned quickly how to pull
the cookware off to the side so the
food didn’t burn. Baking was even
more of a challenge because there
really wasn’t any way to regulate the
heat other than opening the door.
“My great-grandparents were
farmers in Rector, Arkansas so I
learned at a very young age that
cooking and baking was about
nourishing the family. In addition to
their crops, there were gardens full
of berries, melons, squash, tomatoes
and pumpkins. I always helped when
the produce was brought into the
house.
“I learned a lot of southern
classics at my great-grandmother’s
side. I remember many summers in
Grandma’s kitchen shelling peas and
snapping beans. I loved fresh green
beans with spring onions and hog jowl
or ham hocks and new potatoes. I still
cook a version of Grandma’s recipe to
this day and my family loves it.
“The things I learned growing up
proved to be helpful to my mother.
My parents both worked and I was
usually responsible for getting supper
on the table by 4 p.m. when they got
home from work.
“I am a Front Line Manager, Air
Traffic Control Specialist for the
Federal Aviation Administration. I
work rotating shifts and have for over
25 years. I’m responsible for the entire
shift that I am working including my
employees, and all employees working
on that shift along with the aircraft.
“To show my appreciation to my
employees and bosses, I cook and
bake something of their choice for
their birthday. Everyone loves when
I bring in treats and they’re usually
eaten immediately. I like to let my coworkers know how much I appreciate
all the things that they do for me
because without them I wouldn’t have
my job.
“In all of my years of rotating shifts
I have always ensured that my family
was fed first. When I am scheduled for
an evening shift, I cook dinner before
I go to work. That ensures my family
will be fed a nutritious meal and I will
have something good to eat at work.
I love to cook and nourish my family
with good quality food.
“Great-Grandma Linam was my
inspiration and I still think of her
whenever I’m in the kitchen creating.
I think she would be proud!”

Cake:

1
1вЃ„2 2
1
Cups sugar
Cups unbleached flour
Cup NATURAL COCOA POWDER
tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
eggs
Cup milk
Cup oil
tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Cup boiling water
Cake: Preheat the oven to 350В°. Place parchment
liners in the bottom of two 8” round ungreased
cake pans. In a large bowl, sift together the dry
ingredients. Add the eggs, milk, oil and VANILLA.
Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in the
boiling water (batter will be very thin). Pour into
the prepared pans and bake for 22-30 minutes
or until a toothpick inserted into the center
comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.
Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire
rack. Don’t worry if the centers fall a bit when
they come out of the oven, the cake will still look
and taste great!
Raspberry Filling:
12 oz. frozen raspberries
1вЃ„4 Cup sugar
1 TB. cornstarch
1вЃ„4 Cup RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT
Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream:
3 Cups heavy whipping cream
3 TB. water
11вЃ„2 tsp. unflavored gelatin
3вЃ„4 Cup HOT CHOCOLATE MIX
11вЃ„4 teaspoons PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
Filling: In a medium saucepan add the
raspberries, sugar, cornstarch and RASPBERRY
ENLIGHTENMENT. Stir to incorporate all the
ingredients. Cook over medium heat until boiling;
boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove
from the heat; pour into a blender, and puree.
Strain into a bowl and let cool.
Frosting: Place your mixing bowl and beaters
in the freezer to chill while the cake is baking. In
a metal measuring cup or very small saucepan,
combine the water and the gelatin. Let this sit
for 5 minutes, and then heat over low heat for
2 minutes (or so) to melt the gelatin. Don’t let it
get too hot! Pour the cream and hot chocolate
mix into your chilled bowl. With the mixer on
low, drizzle the melted gelatin into the cream/
chocolate mix. Add the VANILLA and turn mixer
to high. Continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
This may take up to 5 minutes.
Assembly: Carefully cut each 8” cake in half
(you will have 4 slices of cake). Place a slice of
cake on your cake carrier or plate. Spread on
1
вЃ„3 of the raspberry filling. Spread on some hot
chocolate whipped cream. Top with another slice
of cake, spread another 1вЃ„3 of raspberry filling and
cover with hot chocolate whipped cream. Top
with another slice of cake. Using the last 1вЃ„3 of
raspberry filling, spread evenly over the cake. Top
with hot chocolate whipped cream. Place the last
slice of cake on top and frost the entire cake with
the remaining hot chocolate whipped cream.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours or
overnight before serving for easiest slicing.

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.

sauteed vegetables, and on
pasta as a side dish. Toss
warm, freshly cooked pasta
with a bit of butter, olive oil, or meat drippings; В№/2 tsp.

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

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.

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
be thick (nice for dip), thin with 1-2 TB. water if desired.
Store in the refrigerator. Hand-mixed from: green onion,
sugar, basil, celery flakes, minced garlic and dill weed.

Lentil Salad
In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the
almonds and sugar until the sugar is dissolved
and the almonds are coated, stirring constantly.
Watch carefully as the mixture will burn easily. The
sugar will go to liquid, coat the almonds, and then
quickly brown. This takes 5-10 minutes depending
on heat. Spread the almonds on wax paper to cool.
Break into small clusters.
Combine the dressing ingredients together, mix
well and chill while assembling the salad.
Wash the greens and place in a serving bowl. Add
the celery and green onions and toss to combine.
Add the oranges, almonds and any additional
ingredients. Toss with dressing. Serve.

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
tsp. Beef Base. For 2 quarts of soup or stew, add 2-3 tsp.
Beef Base. For gravy, add 1 tsp. Beef Base to 2-3 TB. beef
drippings to enhance the flavor of 2 cups gravy.

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

of 2 cups gravy.

Our soup bases are great for broth,

seasonings. Try a little in rice, vegetables
and casseroles—wherever you need
a bit of extra flavor. Refrigeration is
recommended, but not necessary.
Ham Base is traditionally used to add rich, smoky ham
flavor to split pea or bean soup. For 2 quarts soup or
stew made with a ham bone, add 1 TB. Ham Base. For
soup without ham, use В№/2 - 3/4 tsp. Ham Base per cup
(8 oz.) water. For ham gravy, add 1 tsp. Ham Base to 2-3

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

nice change of pace, just use pork instead of chicken or
beef, and add 1 TB. Pork Soup Base to 2 quarts soup to
enhance the flavor. For truly great gravy, add 1 tsp. Pork
Base to 2-3 TB. drippings from pork roast or pork
chops for 2 cups gravy.

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

for chowder, gumbo or bisque, or to use in place of

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.

stirring, until reduced by about half. Serve over cooked,
drained pasta.

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.

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.

Sunny Tuna Salad
Tsardust Memories (Russian-Style Seasoning)
Jennifer writes, “This tuna salad is inspired by my time living in Mexico, with a touch of France to keep things
interesting.” Turn to page 15 to read Jennifer’s story.
Warm and spicy-sweet, this blend is awesome with ground
beef—burgers, meatloaf, meatballs, casseroles… Excellent
in hearty soups and stews, and one of the best things ever
on pork chops—try it on the grill. Whatever you make,
serve it with crusty bread. It’s all good. Hand- mixed from:
salt, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg, marjoram.

Madagascar Vanilla Beans
Regarded as the world's best, Madagascar beans set
the standard for prime vanilla flavor.
3 beans #58430 $ 7.25
15 beans #58456 $ 28.65
Mexican Vanilla Beans
Mexican beans, while similar to Madagascar,
have a darker flavor that is perfect for vanilla
liqueur and coffee drinks.
3 beans #58630 $ 7.25

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

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.

Single Strength Vanilla
35% alcohol. Pure extract from the highest quality
100% premium Madagascar “Bourbon Islands” vanilla
beans. These beans have a rich and complex, smooth,
true flavor. The cool-perking process retains the bean's
full flavor, along with all of the desirable vanilla side
notes. With over 400 flavor components in every
high-quality vanilla bean, artificial vanilla (which
contains only one–synthetic vanillin) will never come
close to matching the wonderful richness of pure
vanilla extract. This extract is 10% stronger than the
pure vanilla extract sold in supermarkets, and has the
great Madagascar flavor. Ingredients: water, alcohol,
sugar and vanilla bean extractives.

35% alcohol. Pure double strength vanilla extract made

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.

earlier trip to Cuba.

I
don’t run marathons or anything
like that, but I really enjoy exercise
because it makes my life so much
better,” says Daryl MacKinnon of
Gaithersburg, Maryland. “I have been
a runner since 7th grade and consider
it a foundation of my mental and
physical well-being.
“Food tastes even better when you’re
hungry because you have worked your
muscles and your soul. I get inspired
to eat healthier so that I can enjoy
what I do physically even more and be
better at it. It all ties together for me.
“Food is such an important part
of our health. I don’t think we always
give enough credit to the impact that
food has on our mental and physical
health. We eat good food for the
nutritional content as well as how it
makes us �feel’ to sit down with loved
ones as we share a meal together. Food
nourishes our bodies and our minds.
“I tend to think of meals in many
ways, besides just flavor or taste. I
enjoy trying to create something for
others that will bring them some
sort of positive feeling whether it is
comfort, relief or just plain taste bud
pleasure.
“I am a novice cook who truly enjoys
getting into the kitchen and creating
something completely new out of
almond, lemon and orange extracts on page 18.

I like that people can get
to know each other through
food and cooking—the foods
we grew up on, the foods
we like and dislike. Cooking

and brings continuity to
different generations.
”
what seemed like almost nothing.
I like when I surprise myself by
making something really good and
discovering how simple it can be to
make food that tastes so good when
made fresh, yourself. It reminds me
of taking a set of paints and pulling
them together to paint a picture.
I guess this is why some people
consider cooking an art.
“I like the fact that I can immerse
myself in the kitchen and take my
mind off the day. I like that people
can get to know each other through
food and cooking—the foods we
grew up on, the foods we like and
dislike. Cooking threads histories
together and brings continuity to
different generations.
“My mom always told me that
anything can taste good if you start
with fresh ingredients. As a young
girl, I stood by her side at the stove
many times watching and listening
as she told me what she was doing.
What Mom made look so easy was
sometimes difficult for me, but she
always offered her support and
guidance.
“The value of foods we grew up
with can add to your health by
making you feel good, secure and
loved. These comfort foods are
unmatchable.
“I remember once each year
we had what Mom called �Dessert
Night.’ My brothers and I always
looked forward to it. For dinner
Mom would make homemade
shortcake, cut up fresh strawberries
and peaches, fresh heavy cream and
vanilla ice cream. That was it, dinner
was served! Ahhh, the memories.”

Kathleen
Hancock
W e grew up right between the
Navajo and Apache reservations in
Show Low, Arizona,” says Kathleen
Hancock. “The town is called Show
Low because the property was won
in a poker game with the low card
being the winner, so the main street
is Deuce of Clubs Avenue.
“We had a boarding school at
our high school for about 60 Navajo
students who lived too far from a
reservation school to make busing
feasible. Unfortunately there was
not much interest then to integrate
the groups and to learn a lot about
the Navajo culture unless you made
the effort to befriend a student,
which I tried but it was not easy
to do because of the cultural
differences.
“It’s a very noble culture and
it’s a shame more wasn’t done. I
remember asking one girl how she
got her beautiful hair so shiny and
she said �bear grease,’ and I guess
my expression gave her a feeling
that I was not too fond of that
answer!

Elizabeth
Mazzocco
y parents believed in having
good home-cooked meals together,
a tradition I have continued with my
family. It’s a good time to talk and
have everyone together,” comments
Elizabeth Mazzocco of Mansfield,
Ohio.
“That, along with my fascination
with recipes, has laid the foundation
for my interest in whole foods, local
foods, vegetarian and vegan fare,
which has been developing over the
past ten years.
“I’ve been trying to eliminate
preservatives from my household, so
I decided to give bread baking a go.
It really wasn’t too much trouble. I’ve
been making several varieties from
whole wheat to rye and raisin since
July of 2009. I find if I target one goal
at a time it’s not so overwhelming.
“We’re blessed in this region with
a great deal of agriculture. There are
three weekly farmers markets within
15 minutes of my home and we all
love to visit a blueberry farm nearby,
and an orchard for fresh-picked
apples, peaches and plums.
“With this abundance of fruit I
have also started making jelly. It’s
a lot of fun, really pretty easy and
so nice to have on the shelf in the
middle of winter.
“This summer I plan on growing
several varieties of grape tomatoes
with the kids, lots and lots of
tomatoes. I just love ’em!
“My kids have gotten old enough
to help in the kitchen. Based on my
experience, my children are more
likely to make healthy choices and
try new foods when they have some
vested interest in it. I’m always sure
to have a little bowl of batter for
them when we’re making muffins or
waffles.
“In some ways food is an extension
of me and an expression of my love
for them. I joke that I get some sort
of 1950s sitcom mother joy out of
cooking when my children clean
their plates. I always try to provide
good food for them: a mix of new
and old, simple or more complicated, inside and outside their
comfort zone.
“I’m home most of the time with
my children and occasionally teach
meteorology and math courses at
various college campuses. For fun,
our family enjoys spending time at
the pool and hiking in the many
parks within our state. I really do
have a good thing goin’ on!
“I am one of the three founding
volunteer moms helping to build the
Little Buckeye Children’s Museum
in town. My kids and my husband
Phil have been involved in the work
as well. This is unlike anything I’ve
ever done. It will be a wonderful
opportunity for the kids of the
region and it’s been an amazing
experience for me.

“Kathleen Hancock” continued from page 52.
“My mom was politically active
in Arizona and spent time on
reservations trying to make things
better for the Native Americans.
As a consequence she was made an
honorary Apache and was invited to
attend a girl’s coming of age party,
to which outsiders are almost never
invited. She was given a native dress
and allowed to participate in the
ritual.
“My dad worked on a logging
train and often they went through
the reservations. He once saw some
Navajo children playing baseball in a
field using sticks as bats and stones as
balls. When he told my mom she said
that just would not do. She went out
and bought baseballs, and later bats,
that my dad would throw randomly
from the window of the train as it was
passing, any time he saw kids in the
field.
“We were raised with discipline, but
also to respect our fellow man and to
try to make a difference in people’s
lives. Our house, crammed full with
nine people–Mom, Dad and seven
daughters–was often the place to hang
out, and anyone who happened by at
dinner time never went away hungry. “I think unfortunately today many
people spend money and too little
time giving their kids things when
the best thing they can do for them
is create memories that will last a
lifetime, and, in turn, be passed on
to their kids. I think that is one of the
appeals of cooking for family groups,
because it’s not just about the food.
It’s about creating memories.”
Kathleen’s Navajo Tacos (see page
63) came from her high school home
economics teacher, who learned to
make them from a local Navajo. “My
teacher said the bread was usually
done with a handful of this and a
handful of that, and this recipe was
her best guess. Since then I have

Mike’s Tasty Steak Marinade
Kathleen shares, “My son gave me this recipe and
asked for it on his birthday, and we used T-bone
steaks. I was not too sure about the orange juice
with steak but it was incredibly good.” This recipe
makes enough marinade for 4 good-sized strip or
T-bone steaks.
Kathleen and her husband Jim, shown
during a visit to Niagara Falls, have been
married 38 years.
seen many recipes for fry bread that
are more exact, but I don’t think
they are any better. It is not unusual
to find a Navajo selling fry bread by
the roadside, similar to how you find
people selling oysters, crab or local
fruit in my current home in Olympia,
Washington.”
The tacos are a favorite in
Kathleen’s home. “It’s a good one
for Cinco de Mayo. My husband Jim
reminded me that it’s been a long
time since I made them for him, so
this May 5th, guess what I’ll be doing.
The tacos are really a blending of
cultures and they’re much enjoyed by
everyone who tries them.”

Be Yourself.
Of course when I say “Be Yourself” I don’t mean tune out from your
surroundings. Far from it. To be yourself is to be super in tune to
where you come from, where you have been and who you’ve met
along the way, because these are what make us who we are.
Like the other cooks featured through this catalog, Kathleen
Hancock and her Navajo Taco recipe are a great example of being
in tune (see her story on page 52). Real life is not as clear-cut as a
half hour TV show. In real life making connections with others can
oftentimes be difficult and awkward, but more often than not the
struggle turns out to be more than worth the effort.
When we connect to others we live, when our cooking connects us
to our lives all sorts of wonderful things happen. So try these tacos
and think of Kathleen and think of the Navajo people but also
think about what are your Navajo Taco recipes. Be proud of the
recipes that make you—you. Let your cooking celebrate your life.
Navajo Tacos
Kathleen asks the age-old question, “Who can resist fried dough? And with the
meat and bean toppings, they make a very fun and filling meal.”

The day before serving, cook the pinto beans. Put them in a large
saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat
to a simmer, and cook until almost soft, about 1-11/2 hours. Keep checking
them to see how soft they are getting. You don’t want to overcook them
into mush. When almost soft, add the SPICES. Taste. Add more spices or
salt to taste. Uncover and let simmer until the beans are soft and the sauce
begins to brown and reduce. Cool until able to put in the refrigerator
overnight. They are actually better the second day, although they can be
served the same day if needed.
oven or a deep fat fryer. Fry 1-2 minutes per side until the dough starts to
turn light brown and gets bubbles, then turn and fry the other side.
Remove with a slotted spatula or basket to allow the excess oil to drip off.
The next day, start your dough for Navajo Fry Bread. There are many
recipes for this, but the one I use is one I got in home-ec in 1969. Most
native Navajos don’t use a recipe but take a handful of this and pinch of
that and make it right, but if you don’t do that a recipe is needed. Some
add a small amount of shortening or bacon fat, but that is optional.
Have your favorite hot sauce available in case some like more heat. Eat and
enjoy. The only way you can really make these in advance is to fry them,
wrap each one of them in foil, and keep warm in your slow cooker for a
short time. They reheat OK in the oven if necessary, or if you are lucky and
have a “keep warm setting” on your oven as I do, that helps. Don’t reheat in
the microwave, they become tough and practically inedible.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and powdered milk.
Add enough warm water to form a dough. Knead until soft but not sticky.
Cover with a cloth and let stand for about 1вЃ„2 hour. To make a larger batch,
don’t double the recipe but make it two or three times.
Place on a plate with paper towels to absorb the oil if not serving right
away. Or, place directly onto plates, and allow your guests to top their fry
bread with as many beans, meat, and fresh toppings as desired and eat
immediately. This is really the best way to do it! As with most fried foods,
the sooner served, the better!
If desired, make extra dough and have powdered sugar, CINNAMON
SUGAR and honey available in case your guests want a smaller extra one to
eat as a dessert, kind of like an elephant ear.
While the bread rests, brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Drain off
any fat. Add the ARIZONA DREAMING or TACO SEASONING and minced
onion. Cook until the onion is softened. Keep warm until ready to serve.
Prep. time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 2 hours for beans and beef, 10 minutes for fry bread
Yield: 6-8 fry breads, toppings for 12-16 tacos
When about ready to serve, divide the dough into 6 or 8 pieces. Pat and
pull with your hands until approximately the size of a small dinner plate,
with no holes in it. Fry over fairly high heat on both sides in enough oil to
cover, 350-375В° is about right. This will require a deep heavy skillet, a Dutch
