Spice Up Your Holidays!

Whether you adhere to traditional recipes or like to take your own unique flavor path for your holiday feast, we have seasonings to spice up classic and creative dishes. Here are some of our favorites:

 The Turkey
Brine It:  Brining a turkey is the best way to keep it juicy and flavorful for a holiday meal. Soaking the turkey in a solution of water, sugar, and salt helps diminish some the moisture loss that naturally happens when the turkey spends the day in the oven. Adding seasoning to the mixture helps infuse flavor into the bird while it soaks and also while it roasts.

With a little planning and a jar of Savory Spice Shop’s Citrus & Savory Brining Spice Ready Mix, brining a holiday turkey (or goose, duck, chicken, or pork) is a breeze.

Rub It: Take your holiday turkey flavor even further by rubbing the bird before roasting with one of our favorite holiday poultry rubs:

Tiny Town Turkey Rub
The aroma and flavors of this turkey rub evokes memories of traditional family holiday meals.

Nantucket Herb & Citrus Poultry Rub
The herb and citrus combination of this blend imparts a flavorful brightness to any poultry dish.

Gold Coast Tropical Poultry Rub
Take your turkey to tropics! The citrus and pepper in this rub are balanced by authentic island flavors of ginger and allspice.
The Sides
 Orange & Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes
Featuring our Marrakech Moroccan Mix, this recipe puts an exotic spin on a traditional favorite.
Sage & Savory Stuffing
Inspired by grandma’s recipe, this is the dish our Poultry Seasoning was born for.
 Brown Sugar & Spice Asparagus Bundles
This beautifully presented side makes the most of our sweet yet spicy ham rub—a seasoning that works just as well with fruits, veggies and squash.
 The Desserts
 Spiced Pumpkin Tart
Featuring Chinese Five Spice, orange zest, and graham crackers, this tart is just enough of a departure from pumpkin pie to make it exotic yet deliciously familiar.
 Apple Pie Bites
Simply seasoned with our Baking Spice, these are great for a crowd or for cookie exchanges. They also make the perfect sized dessert for the “kids’ table.”
Chai Pound Cake
This is the ultimate tea cake. Featuring our Mt. Baker Chai Seasoning, it tastes like chai tea, fall, and the holidays all wrapped up into one bite.
