Just Another Lovely Market Day...

Yesterday's Cheverly Community Market was in full swing with a slew of fresh market offerings and the venue being moved to an inside location due to the chilly weather creeping in. It was an exciting market experience; meeting new vendors (DC Dills is a new favorite of ours!) hanging out with our normal vending buddies (Bananatopia was in the house! YUM! We missed you Gone Greens!), and of course the awesome customers who were gearing up for the holiday season!

Yesterday, we brought in our new products that were introduced at the Metro Cooking and Entertaining Show along with two new staples to our collection:

  • CONGO SQUARE - A NEW ORLEANS INSPIRED BLEND WITH ANNATTO SEEDS, CARROT AND BAY LEAVES.

  • THE FIESTA - A SPIN OFF OF OUR POPULAR DRY RUB: FEATURES TURMERIC, MUSHROOMS, AND CUMIN SEED. 

For sampling purposes, we brought our good friend; the roasted chickpea. They paired nicely with each seasoning; this shows you how easy our seasonings can be incorporated with the most neutral of foods.

Stay tuned for more updates! At our next market, we'll be bringing in some lovely goodies for the holidays!

Popcorn and Cinnamon Goodness

Once again, we had the pleasure of being apart of the Cheverly Community Market yesterday from 8am - 12pm. At our first market appearance, we featured an avocado based dip and at our second market day, we provided chickpea dips/spreads for sampling. Both offerings showcased the seasonings taste and versatility. Yesterday's market, we kept things fun and simple with popcorn tastings! 

The recipe for this tasty snack with Don Williamson's dry rubs is pretty simple; we simply popped all natural popcorn kernels in avocado oil (just enough of both to coat the bottom of a pot of your choice. Make certain to place a matching sized lid on the pot). Every so often throughout the popping process, shake the pot back and forth with the lid on. Once the popping noises begin to fade (basically counting 1-2-3-pop!) remove the pot from the heat, then add the cooked popcorn to a large bowl with a top for the seasoning process. Shake the bowl of popcorn with the seasoning (lid on) to evenly distribute the flavor. In regards to the amount of seasoning, that's totally up to you. It's easy to test this out by slowly adding a teaspoon at a time and then tasting to your liking. And that's it! 

At the last two markets, we've added two limited-time-only deals to our line-up of products. Our Organic Cinnamon Sugar and Unrefined Portuguese Sea Salt. The Organic Cinnamon Sugar (the most popular of the two and made from organic Indonesian cinnamon) has an array of uses. Try it in your coffee or tea to give it a nice and light cinnamon flavor or add it to your oatmeal for some extra heart-warming. It's also amazing on french toast and to use in baking. And by the way, the benefits of organic cinnamon are awesome!

The Unrefined Portuguese Sea Salt can be used in lieu of regular iodized or kosher salt. It's a better alternative because, it's naturally loaded with iodine, magnesium, and potassium which are essential nutrients. 

The Organic Cinnamon Sugar goes for $6 while our Unrefined Portueguese Sea Salt is priced at $5. Cheverly Community Market exclusive only folks, so you'll have to stop by our table to pick some up!

We'll of course be at the next Cheverly Community Market (Saturday, July 12th), but if you need your Don Williamson's fix before then, don't hesitate to drop us a line!
