Get ready for this little gem out of Peru – Aji Amarillo – a yellow to bright orange chili pepper with a fruity note.  If you are serious about your chili and want to ramp up your line of offerings this is the chili for you.  Serious Eats says, “If there were a chili to taste like sunshine, this would be it.”

We have formulated this as a kosherable, Non-GMO compliant blend intended as a snack seasoningHowever, the Aji Amarillo is often used in paste form to create sauces and rubs.

Maras Peppers - The New “Hot” Go To Pepper & Spice Rub

Posted on Tue, Oct, 2016@ 12:28 PM

Maras peppers from Turkey are the cousin to the Aleppo pepper. Only 125 miles from Aleppo, Syria, this pepper has a slow, subtle heat; the aroma is fruity and bright with an undertone of earthy must, some say almost a smoky flavor.

 

Syria’s internal conflict means the growing areas for the Aleppo pepper have been damaged. Maras (pronounced mah-RAHSH) peppers are sun-dried and then ground between slow turning stone wheels (much like in the olive oil making process).

 

ci_maras_pepper_2_J.jpg

 

In Turkey, the dried pepper is mixed with olive oil, lemon juice and salt; it is used to season lamb or goat. They are also used fresh and have a sweet, dried fruit type note with a touch of heat that hits the throat and then dissipates.

 

Spice distributor Carolina Ingredients has innovated a maras pepper rub with notes of onion and garlic, citrus and cumin. This would be excellent on grilled chicken, lamb or seafood, grilled eggplant or slowly roasted carrots. This versatile spice rub would also lend itself to a unique rub for deli meats. This is a coarser ground product so it adds nice visuals to your commercial seasoning blends and therefore is not best.

 

Contact us today if you have a unique innovative twist on this trending spice.

Non-GMO Popularity on the Rise

Posted on Tue, Aug, 2015@ 11:55 AM

Carolina Ingredients is proud to offer Non-GMO Project verified snack seasonings. With last year’s sales of non-GMO products increasing in the United States by 10% to $190 million, this trend is proving itself to be anything but short-lived. Gone are the days when consumers didn’t know, or want to know, what was in their food. 

NonGMO 2015 resized 600

According to the NPD Group, a global information company, more than half of Americans are concerned that genetically modified foods pose a health hazard. This attitude extends to those foods previously thought of as “healthy” – including those labeled as diet, lower sugar, caffeine-free, or low carb. The popularity of these products with consumers has been on the decline, now reaching its lowest point in a decade.

According to Diamond Foods, by the end of fiscal year 2016, roughly 70% of their sales will be in Non-GMO Project verified snacks. Even restaurants – including Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread Co. – are jumping on board the non-GMO trend, with many changing their seasoning suppliers and offering simpler ingredients.

Consumers are replacing an association of what’s “good for you” by what’s been removed, whether that’s sugar, fat or carbs – with “good for you” by what’s natural, real and unaltered.

Check out the non-GMO verified snack blends offered by Carolina Ingredients today.
