I love spices! Whenever I'm out shopping, I always have to stop in the spice section to make sure there's nothing I need or to see if there's anything new on the shelf that needs to make its way to my kitchen. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by the Mystic Blue Spice Company and asked to review their spices. I thought it was quite fitting that A Well-Seasoned Life would review seasonings and spices. And, the company were generous enough to provide some spices for one of my lucky followers.
The Mystic Blue Spice Company's products are all natural seasonings with no MSG, preservatives, or fillers. In addition to the herbs and spices, they also sell flavored sugars, dry rubs, and curry blends. Do you think you could find a use for chocolate sugar in your life? And, if you're a curry fan, you'll have no problem finding your preferred level of heat. I'll have to admit that I'm mild curry eater myself. My husband is all about the rub - Baby Cajun, Moroccan, and Mystic Montreal Style would all appeal to him. And, if you can't decide on one product - don't worry - there are gift sets, too.
I tested the Southwest Seasoning blend which had ground chilies as its main ingredient. It smelled divine and looked gorgeous on my rack of ribs.
I slathered the ribs in Mystic Blue Spice Company's Southwest Seasoning and placed them on the smoker for about five hours or so. Since our smoker is round, I filled the middle with some lemons to prevent the ribs from drying out and to add some extra flavor.
My husband was a happy man when this rack came off the smoker. The Southwest Seasoning worked well with pork. In the future, I plan to try it on some chicken fajitas. It's a versatile spice blend and its use is only limited by your imagination.
Stay tuned for Part II when I use and review the Mystic Blue Spice Company's House Fish Seasoning. Are you as excited about it as I am?
