Favorite PENZEY'S Spices

I love rubbing the Black and Red on my Rib-eyes a couple hours before grilling and the Jerk seasoning on the chicken.

What's your favorite seasonings from Penzey's and what recipes are you using them in?

    The Turkish Seasoning works great on Pork chops, chicken breasts and even in a beef pot roast that I made. I use the Jerk Seasoning a lot too, especially on shrimp and pork tenderloin. The Vindaloo Seasoning works well on lamb and chicken.

    The Greek blend is great on rotisserie (sp?) chicken. I love their different peppercorn blends for my grinder. Living within 20 miles of the original store gives me an advantage! I just go in on a Saturday morning and browse until something peaks my interest. I have a large spice rack that is filled almost entirely with Penzey's stuff.

    I've been a Penzey's mail order customer for a long time. So, I was delighted when they recently opened a new store here in Dallas. I have been replacing all (with a few exceptions) of the spices and herbs in my pantry with Penzey's products. They are the best! And most all are less expensive than other brands.
    I can get 3 vanilla beans in a jar at Penzey's for the price of 2 elswhere.
    I especially like their "Chicago Steak Seasoning".

    I like the breakfast sausage seasoning for pork sausage in the mornings

    the Chicago steak seasoning is very good on burgers

    I love Penzey's spices. With Thanksgiving coming up, several favorites come to mind. For apple and pumpkin pies, etc, their nutmeg, cinnamon (I like their extra fancy Vietnamese Cassia- an order is in route), and ginger are unlike any I've ever used! Their Bicentennial rub is awesome for pork roasts, chicken, and turkey! My overall favorite is their Indian Telicherry black peppercorns- extra bold.

    I'm on my second bag of the Szechwan Peppercorns. They are even great on baby back ribs!

    I love the Turkish spice, Aleppo Pepper and Smoked Paprika. All of Penzey's Indian Spices are great. Cardomom, Black Cumin, Turmeric, Kashmiri Saffron, and Fenugreek are wonderful. And you can buy Diamond Kosher Salt, my favorite, at Penzey's.

    I went to my first Penzey's store a few months ago--unfortunately the closest one to me is about three hours away in Arlington, MA!

    That said, I keep the Black and Red on the table to add to just about anything, and their Smoked Paprika is the single most delicious spice I have ever tasted. One of my favorite ways to use it is to add it to bread crumbs when coating chicken.

    I've been a catalog customer of theirs for years and they just opened a store here in Scottsdale AZ. I've used a number of ther chili related spices, Bratwurst seasoning, Pizza seasoning, poultry seasoning, Prime rib rub, etc etc. Their ALL top notch in quality & flavor.
    I also like the idea of being able to buy small jars to try them out and they get used up before they sit on the shelf too long. I had some spices in the cupboard that were so old, the labels were written in Latin!

    I always ordered the crystalized ginger from Pennzys, until I tried it from the Ginger People in CA, wow what a difference, their ginger rounds and gin gin candies are addictive (but in a good way:) event their ginger beer is worth the shipping to NJ.

    Penzey's Ozark Seasoning is Lucky Bishop's "secret ingredient" in many, many dishes, from simple broiled or grilled meats to home fries. We also like the Barbecue of the Americas and the Turkish Seasoning, and the Italian Herb Blend. I'm also very fond of the Sunny Paris blend.

    I'm also a long time Penzey's catalog customer--I love their vindaloo mix for my curries and I haven't bought garlic powder or vanilla extract from anyone else for years because you can't beat Penzey's. I only had one thing I didn't like--the horseradish powder. Everything else has been awesome.

    I would say I use Fox Point and Adobo more than any other of their blends. I use them so much I have taken to buying the large glass jars. As for straight up spices, cumin and smoked paprika are my faves. My spice cabinet looks like a Penzey's catalog.

    EatWisconsin, so does mine. I love the smoked paprika, Fox Point seasoning, and just about everything else. The only thing I refuse to order is the four-color peppercorns, when I can get them elsewhere for a lot less. And I love their ground chipotle in just about everything except ice cream and cereal.

    We get pretty much all of our spices through Penzey's, unless we need something in a hurry for some reason.

    I think the spices we get the most of are cinnamon, taco seasoning, and garlic salt. Also lots of cumin and chili powder for my semi-regular chili production. But there are plenty of others that we like a lot that we just don't use as quickly, like the Maharaja curry.

    Dan B,
    now thinking of making biryani this weekend

    Thanks for this thread. There are a lot of ideas and recommendations here that I have never tried. And I thought I had tried everything.



    There is risk in living near to Penzeys and/or The Spice House.

    The new favorite in my house is Shallot-Pepper Seasoning.

    my dad introduced me to penzeys which I now use pretty much exclusively for all my spices

    I like Foxpoint, and sunny paris which is Foxpoint without salt. I use it on eggs, mostly.

    I like the Greek seasoning, and I also like country french vinagrette which i put on potatoes, chicken.

    i like the beef roast seasoning, for meat

    the cinnamon is also great and I got a sample of apple pie spice which was great, and I tried the new mural of seasoning which i like a lot on fish, and vegetables.

    I try a lot of their stuff; I keep coming back to their black pepper, shallot pepper (which tastes like tarragon!), and freeze-dried sliced onions and shallots.

    I was in the Pensey's Scottsdale today...man that vindaloo mix smelled awesome. Do you have a favorite recipe you use it with MandalayVA? The lable suggested a pork and potato vindaloo but i would be curious to know how you use it.

    I love the different chile powders. Chipotle is great when you want something with a smoky flavor and the ancho gives a lot of "pepper" flavor without the heat when you're making something for folks who don't care for things to be very spicy.

    Smoked paprika is great sprinkled on seared scallops and shrimp, or on roasted potatoes.

    I also like ground ancho pepper and Bavarian seasoning. I'm not as happy with Mural of Flavor. I ordered some and asked them if it were similar to Tastefully Simple's Garlic Garlic, which I should buy by the gross. They were noncommittal, basically just saying "try it." I did, but it has too much citric acid for me. Would be good on fish, but I don't cook that much fish.
