Rich Gray shares information about his company’s start up: “I actually wanted to do this a dozen years ago. I’ve been an avid cook for a long time. Instead I launched YankeeScents.com (potpourri) then. NorthEast Seasonings has been a work in progress ever since. We’ve been testing recipes and blends throughout that time, and finally got around to launching the business last year.”
The Jerk Seasoning is a wonderful mix of sweet, salty, and mildly spicy spices. North East Seasoning uses maple sugar to sweeten this essential Jamaican spice blend. I would recommend brushing a light coat of olive oil onto chicken breasts and thighs and then sprinkling this jerk seasoning all over the meat. Grill to perfection and enjoy! If you have a smoker this would be the time to use it!
Making pizza is a weekly adventure at our house. We love love love to make pizza though there is a constant battle about who makes the best pizza crust. One thing that is easy to agree on is how to make a great sauce. We start with Pizza Seasoning from North East Seasoning (their best selling spice blend!) and then add fresh or canned tomatoes and a bit of tomato paste. It’s that easy and the flavor will far surpass anything that you can buy in a jar.
Tonight I made my husband burgers for his birthday. Local beef, cilantro from our garden, and Montreal Steak Seasoning. Delicious! Above is my burger. No toppings. No cheese. No top bun. Just well seasoned meat on a bottom bun. I had to ask everyone (a few times) if they liked their burgers because they were so quiet. They were just quiet because they were happily eating and enjoying their burgers.
