Add some hot pepper if you want to spice it up. For chicken, pork or fish, use about 1 tsp. of seasoning per pound. Enjoy!
APPLE PIE SPICE:
Our original Apple Pie Spice is great in more than just pies! Try this blend in batter for sugar cookies, waffles, pancakes and French toast. It will perk-up muffins if you add ½ tsp. per cup of batter. It is fantastic sprinkled over oatmeal with a little sugar added, or dust it over a latte! For a quick treat, sprinkle a little on an apple while you’re eating it. For an 8 inch apple pie, use 1½ tsp. spice (or to taste). Enjoy!
When I think of hot, I think of Arizona. Desert. Dry Heat. Tumbleweeds. And hot food. That’s what this blend of three hot peppers and black pepper is all about: hot food (not tumble-weeds).

BLOODY MARY SEASONING:
As the name implies, this seasoning tastes much like a Bloody Mary. In fact, many people use the seasoning to make Bloody Marys. That, however, is not why we created this seasoning. It can be shaken or rubbed onto almost any meat for incredible flavor. The seasoning is spicy-hot: It contains both Tabasco powder and a touch of horseradish. If you want, use it as a rimmer for your drinks, or add some (mix well) to Bloody Mary mix for more flavor.

Rinse THOROUGHLY, pat dry and refrigerate for 2 hours before cooking.
CALIFORNIA VEGGIE BLEND:
California Veggie Blend is a great all-around seasoning. As the name implies, it is excellent on vegetables, but it is also tasty on chicken, pork and beef. Since this seasoning uses white pepper, it is more suitable to foods with white sauces and the pink peppercorns add a nice splash of color. We admit this isn’t our best smelling seasoning, but once you add it to food, the aroma and flavor are wonderful. Enjoy!
CAMP STYLE WILD GAME SEASONING:
Developed with the serious hunter in mind, our Camp-Style Wild Game Seasoning is fantastic on game of almost any kind. This seasoning is great on large and small game, as well as birds.

To create a “Beau Monde” seasoning, add 1 tsp. granulated onion to 4 tsp. celery salt.
CHILI POWDER, HOT:
This blend of chili powder is hot. It’s not for everyone. Even though it contains a lot of heat, the flavor is still fantastic! As with our medium chili powder, use this blend with Mexican and Southwestern cooking, or any recipe where a chili taste is desired. Depending on your palette, you may want to add a little salt. Unlike most chili powder, ours are all sodium-free. Enjoy!
CHILI POWDER, MEDIUM:
This is our most popular chili powder. It’s truly a medium-heat blend, but it is very fresh and may be hotter than the chili powder that’s been sitting in your cupboard for the past several years! You may want to taste your food as you season it until you’re accustomed to our fresh products. Our chili powder is fantastic in Mexican cuisine and in chili. Try it in your Southwestern recipes too.

If possible, let the meat sit for several hours (in your refrigerator) while the flavors penetrate the meat. Then grill or bake them to your liking. Enjoy!

It is excellent mixed into sweet marinades (especially for pork), for an exotic flavor. Enjoy!

CURRY POWDER, HOT:
This spice blend has the same great flavor as our sweet curry powder with a little extra “punch”. The additional chile pepper and a little more ginger give our hot curry powder the extra heat and bite. If, for some reason, this blend still isn’t hot enough for you, add a little extra hot pepper powder – cayenne works nicely. Use our Hot Curry Powder as you would any other curry powder. Enjoy!
CURRY POWDER, SWEET (MILD):
While our Sweet Curry does have a bit of a “bite” due to the black pepper, this particular blend is not hot. If you are trying curry for the first time, or just don’t like spicy-hot foods, we recommend using sweet curry to start. Curry powders marry well with a wide variety of foods. Try it with fish, vegetables or in salad dressings and tuna salad. Once you develop a taste for curry, try some other curries, such as Garam Masala.

If possible, marinate in refrigerator for a few hours after tossing. Sauté the meat and re-season as necessary. Enjoy your fajitas!
This traditional French blend of light, sweet herbs is fantastic in soup, eggs (especially omelets), salads and on vegetables.

FIRE & SPICE:
Besides using this spice blend (sparingly) to really spice up your food, we’ve heard the contents of this bottle are also useful for; removing oil stains from your garage floor, eliminating sludge build-up on your engine, killing any pest that invades your home and taking paint or wallpaper off your walls.

FRENCH FOUR SPICES:

FRENCH SEASONING SALT:
Classic French cuisine relies on the combination of simple ingredients such as onion and celery to add flavors to food. As we all know, sometimes less is more.

French Seasoning Salt can also be a nice addition to beef or other meats, especially in combination with sauces and marinades. Bon appetite!

HOLY COW HAMBURGER SEASONING:
For years people asked us to make a seasoning just for hamburgers, something that was different from steak seasonings, but just as easy to use.

There’s a variety of flavors waiting to come out of the bottle: Onion, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce powder and basil, just to name a few.

It’s great on veggies and in wild rice soup. It’s unique and really versatile – that’s why it’s our best seller!
OLE & LENA:
Us folk with a Norwegian background don’t like things too spicy, don’t ya know. Even black pepper is gettin’ a little too much for us to take. Now our friend Sven, he’s from down south in Sweden, and they even eat catsup there. That’s livin’ on the edge, I tell ya. Not us. We like things cool and predictable. That’s why we use Ole & Lena’s seasoning. Good ol’ salt and pepper. Perfect for the Northland. (Councilor’s advisory: This seasoning contains only salt and pepper. There is no Ole or Lena. These are made up characters. Catsup is not considered a spice, in Minnesota, Sweden or anywhere else. Maybe in Norway. Made for consumption by any person: you do not have to be from the “Northland”. Thank you for your support.)
One of the most popular seasonings in the United States, Onion Salt is simply a combination of onion and salt. What sets ours apart from the rest? We start with pure sea salt.

This blend is half Mysore green and half Tellicherry black peppercorns (by volume). It has a lighter flavor than most blends, thanks to the abundance of mellow green peppercorns.

Think of it as an all-purpose, spicy seasoning with a hint of Szechuan flavor. Just shake it on and enjoy the aroma. Try a little taste of our town, Rogers, today. Enjoy!
Our Saigon Seasoning adds warm flavors to Asian dishes of all kinds. We use real Vietnamese cinnamon, along with coconut powder, ginger and lime juice powder to create a seasoning that will enhance any beef, chicken or pork dish. Try it on vegetables, too. Add 1 TBSP (or to taste) per 4 servings for great Saigon flavor.
Our salsa mix is perfect for families who love fresh salsa, even if they can’t agree on how hot it should be! To prepare the salsa, add 1½ Tbsp. of salsa mix per 16 oz. of fresh, chopped tomatoes or canned tomatoes. Before serving, refrigerate for at least one hour for the flavors to blend. For smooth salsa, put the mixture in the blender. If you like a lot of heat, add some of our cayenne, jalapeño, chipotle or habanero powder.
People avoid cooking shellfish because they don’t cook it often and it can be expensive. We understand. That’s why we made our seafood boil. It’s great for lobster, crab, shrimp and other shellfish. Just add the contents of this bottle to the water that you’re using to boil the seafood (two bottles for large kettles). When the water boils, add your seafood and cook until done. It’s that easy! Enjoy your seafood.
This versatile seasoning adds instant flavor to meats and vegetables. The flavor of sesame, soy sauce, onions and garlic combine to compliment almost any dish. Just sprinkle on your food while cooking to add an Asian flair to your food. Our Sesame Seasoning is particularly good on green beans. Add towards the end of stir-frying on your stove for best results.
When preparing the finest cuts of beef, you don’t want to overwhelm them with seasonings. Our Signature Beef Seasoning is made especially for prime, aged beef – it won’t cover up the meat’s natural flavors. We use the finest sea salt with a hint of spices and herbs. Simply rub the seasoning on both sides of the meat before cooking, then enjoy your steak!
Our Simply Thai is a gourmet seasoning that combines the best from Thailand – the tanginess of lime, the exotic flavor of lemon grass and a touch of heat from bird peppers. Use Simply Thai on any meat dish. Add midway through cooking to insure the flavor of the herbs doesn’t cook out. It’s great with coconut-based sauces!
SMOKEHOUSE DIP MIX:
This is a great dip mix for vegetables, pretzels or chips. Like the slow steady heat of a smokehouse, this dip mix has a lasting, peppery flavor. Its fiery blend of spices and smoky peppers make it a real belly warmer. Add one tablespoon (heaping, if you like it hot) to one cup of sour cream. Refrigerate for at least one hour prior to indulging. Try a little on your baked potato for a spicy change. Enjoy!
Picture a southern plantation with an expansive yard for a picnic lunch. Now add platters of fried chicken, sizzling and smelling so good you can’t wait to take a bite. Perfection! That is what our Southern Belle chicken seasoning is meant to capture. Batter fry, oven fry or sauté chicken on the range. It doesn’t matter because the result will be the same — lip smackin’ good.
Whether you call them potatoes or “spuds”, they just don’t have much taste without adding something to them. So we decided to create a topping that you can just sprinkle on any variety of potato to give them instant flavor. Use on baked, hash browns, boiled and in potato casseroles or soups. And don’t forget those potatoes you cook on the grill! Try Spuds as an all-purpose seasoning as well. Enjoy!
Our fantastic, MSG-Free seasoning for tacos is similar to the packets that come with taco shells, but much more flavorful and less salty. This seasoning is not too hot, so the whole family can enjoy it. To make taco filling, mix 4 TBSP Taco Seasoning with 4 oz. water and add to 1 lb. of browned (and drained) ground beef. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until sauce starts to thicken. Use as a seasoning for burritos too. Enjoy!
Our Teriyaki Seasoning has great Asian flavor without the mess of a sticky sauce. You still get the spicy sweetness of teriyaki, but all you have to do is shake the seasoning on your food. It’s great for stir-fry, just add towards the end of cooking to avoid burning. You can also use it for a seasoning on grilled or baked foods. It’s a flavor the whole family will love!
If you’re reading this label, you must like pork chops – and do we have a seasoning for you! Thislittlepiggy tastes fantastic and, thanks to the paprika base, is great at sealing in the meat’s juices. The flavor of this seasoning is tough to describe, there are so many great ingredients, but they blend well with the delicate flavor of pork. Salt has been kept to a minimum, so add as much as your want!
Every now and then life throws you a curve ball. That happened to a great friend of ours, Tommy, when he had a stroke. An event like that can change many aspects of life, including diet. Tommy likes our Rocky Mountain Steak Seasoning, but it has salt in it. We created this no-salt blend for him to help lower his sodium intake while maintaining great flavor. We know that Tommy likes it and we hope you do too.
Trail Dust adds a distinctive flavor to Southwestern foods and other dishes ranging from steaks and burgers to salad dressings and “Mac & Cheese”. Try it on vegetables, chicken, pork and fish too. The mouth-watering taste isn’t too hot, which means it’s great for the whole family. So, after a long day of ridin’ the range or hitting balls at the range, sprinkle a little Trail Dust on your cooking and taste the Southwest.
This salt-free blend of herbs and spices is terrific in Italian food. It is spicy and bold, but it has the sweetness of bell pepper, onion, garlic and herbs. Use it as a substitute for Italian Seasoning or to augment other seasonings for a slightly spicier taste. It’s great in pasta sauces, on chicken, pork and beef, and as a pizza seasoning. As with our “regular” Italian Seasoning, try it on cheese bread or potatoes.
TWIN CITIES STEAK SEASONING:
Minnesotans are understated. We’re not boastful. We don’t show off. And we never draw attention to ourselves. Usually. The Twin Cities bends these rules just a little bit – and for good reason. Look at everything we have to be proud of and thankful for. This seasoning is similar to the Twin Cities: It lets the flavor through, but adds a little something special, without being overpowering. You’ll love the combination of pepper, garlic, onion and herbs. We added a fantastic French salt as a tribute to some of the earliest settlers of our state.
Those who live near Minneapolis know that there’s always something to do in Uptown. Great food, lively entertainment and interesting people… Very interesting people. This section of Minneapolis supplies us with an almost never-ending choice of cuisine. Our tribute to Minneapolis is this seasoning. Simple, flavorful and non-spicy, so Minnesotans will eat it. Enjoy it on your favorite cuts of meat and vegetables.
Vanilla’s sweet, warm flavor is fantastic in all kinds of baking and can be a great part of other seasonings, like barbecue and jerk. Combining vanilla with sugar is a natural. Our Vanilla Sugar contains a powdered form of vanilla extract and real vanilla seeds. Sure, it’s more expensive to make it this way, but the flavor is superior to anything else we’ve tried. Use our Vanilla Sugar for cookies, muffins, lattes, coffee, tea and even breakfast cereal. Enjoy!
WAYZATA BAY SEASONING:
It took years of trials to get this seasoning just right, but it was worth the effort. Use Wayzata Bay Seasoning for steaming crab or shrimp. Mix it with a 1/4 cup olive oil, juice from 1/4 lemon and a pinch of parsley for a spicy chicken marinade. Try it in your favorite crab cake, shrimp scampi or fish recipe. You can even season hamburgers with it. Try Wayzata Bay Seasoning on almost any meat for great flavor.
Not to appear trite, but this seasoning is one of a kind. It can be used on anything. Just sprinkle it on meats, poultry, fish, vegetables or whatever you are trying to make taste good. It is as easy as that. The only decision you have to make is how much to use and that is to individual taste. Some call this a seasoning salt, but our customers just say, Whatever!
WILD RICE SEASONING:
Once a staple in the Native American diet, we now consider wild rice a delicacy. Try this easy recipe for great wild rice every time. Add 1/2 cup wild rice and 1 T. Wild Rice Seasoning to 4 cups cold water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook 30 minutes. Remove from heat; let sit covered for 30 minutes. Drain excess liquid. Stir in 1 T. butter and 1/2 tsp. Wild Rice Seasoning.
We’ve never received such rave reviews during a taste trial as we did from the dozens of hunters that tested this seasoning for us. Wilderness reduces the “gaminess” of venison while adding the perfect seasoning touch. It doesn’t obscure the natural flavors, it enhances them. Customers have used Wilderness on pheasant, duck, beef, chicken, pork and even large African game. Try Wilderness on your favorite meat and enjoy!
