Natural Cure for Meats

Posted on Thu, May, 2018@ 11:00 AM

As consumers become more aware of how their food is grown and processed they are starting to ask more questions.  There are a lot of “Uncured” meats on the market, but they mostly contain Celery Juice Powder which is simply a highly concentrated source of nitrites.  Consumers are beginning to understand what that means.

 

Our new Natural Cure Blend eliminates chemical nitrite, erythorbate, celery powder, acerola cherry powder, and other chemicals.  Labeled as “Sea Salt, Dried Vinegar, Natural Flavors”, it is classified as all natural and allergen free and offers great shelf life and food safety.  The Natural Cure Blend is not a concentrated nitrite source and eliminates the need for celery powder. Our Natural Cure provides truth in labeling and is perfect for use in Ham, Bacon, Salami, Hot Dogs, Pepperoni and any seasonings for meat.

Southern Cuisine - A New Snack Seasoning, Spicy Pimento Cheese

Posted on Tue, Oct, 2014@ 08:00 AM

Southern Cuisine is no longer found just in the south - its popularity is expanding as well known chefs begin to highlight traditional southern dishes and trends in their menus. Now, it is common to see pimento cheese used in other ways. No longer solely a dip or sandwich spread, you now find pimento cheese burgers, pimento grilled cheese sandwiches to deep fried pimento cheese balls. The Varsity, an Atlanta landmark, serves pimento cheese with chili on their hotdogs.

Pimento Cheese, comfort food, now has multiple variations --from changing the types of cheese to peppers in this lovely mix. You’ll find cheddar, jack, American, and even changes based upon “cleaning” out the refrigerator cheese drawer. Originally with pimentos, a popular crop grown in the south until the 1960’s, jalapenos, piquillos, and other peppers are used to transform this Southern dish into a fusion blend.

Carolina Ingredient’s ideation for October is Spicy Pimento Cheese. Smooth and creamy cheese blend plus heat from different chili peppers mix with a zing of garlic. We formulated this as a snack seasoning; however, we can modify this winner to be used as a blend in for sauces, soups or dressings. Even better, how about a spicy pimento cheese “Hot Pocket” type snack?
