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!

Our First Post + Cheverly Community Market Kickoff

First post to our site = awesome! Along with our dry rubs and seasonings, this site has been in development for quite some time. With changes came re-branding came re-designing and... well you can just get the gist of where this passage is going. It's exciting to finally have this little corner of the inet available with incoming content that will keep readers/customers abreast of the happenings with Don Williamson's. 

Now onto the fun stuff...

We were invited to feature our products at today's Cheverly Community Market, which was also the kick-off day for it (this event pretty much takes place every other Saturday during the summer and fall seasons). There were so many unique vendors offering food, jewelry, and other goodies to the close-knit town of Cheverly, MD.

We were way too honored to be apart of the roster of vendors and enjoyed our time at the event meeting new people and learning so much about the market experience. Each of our dry rubs were featured in a avocado based dip along with ancient grain breads for tasting purposes. Don't worry; for those who missed out on the dip or actually tried some and want to relive that tasty experience, we'll be providing the recipe for it in our next post.  

We got great feedback and supporters for our brand and we just want to thank those who came by our little table to enjoy organic goodies at it's finest. Oh, and we'll be back with even more deliciousness and good times at the next market day on June 14th.

Our online store is also in development. Stay tuned to our site to place your first order with us!
