"We have been home cooks together for over 20 years. Flavor is important to us and we’ve attempted to recreate many of the wonderful flavors we’ve experienced from kitchens everywhere. At first, we found ourselves making our own spice blends to use as rubs on grilled meats. By experimenting, we discovered that many could be used in other entrees, sauces and side dishes.
Shortly after relocating to Vermont, we bottled a batch of our favorite spice blend and gave them as Christmas gifts to many relatives and friends. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. This gave us the incentive to do it again the next year with a new flavor. This time, friends and family asked for more and said they would be willing to buy it from us.
Well, one thing led to another and today we find ourselves bottling our spice blends to sell to other home cooks! Our customers told us that they wanted spice with very little salt (most spice blends or rubs use salt as a filler) and they wanted to be able to use a spice blend for more than just grilling. We have developed many recipes that allow home cooks to create multiple entrees with one bottle of spice."
