Again a curiosity to be sated. Are any of you familiar with the canned products that Glory Foods put out? For most part, unless it's home-canned food, I steer clear of commericial canned vegetables, but these have changed my mind somewhat. They feature things such as spinach, greens, string beans, skillet corn, Field peas etc and they are surprisingly very tasty, with a definite southern style home cooking in their flavor. (and yes, they use bacon grease in a lot of these preparations)

I've had Glory greens before. A friend swears by that brand, and once while we were making dinner at his house, he handed me a big can of the mixed greens and asked me to "do something with this". I chopped some onions, fried them in some bacon grease, then heated the greens in that. They were actually pretty good!

I've seen the Glory brand in many of the stores here, but have only had the greens.

Walmart sells Glory products and they have the only collards that I will buy that is canned.

Very tasty and seasoned well.

Greens are hubby's favorite side, and he is quite the greens afficianado. He is crazy about Glory greens...we have them every New Years Day, along with Glory black eye peas. They're downright yummy!

I went to their website and some of their new frozen items look delicious. They have a page where their products are distributed around the country.

I like the fried corn that's in the freezer section, greens are pretty good but I'm so used to have plenty of greens around I prefer to do my own. They do have a pretty good product for sure.

Albertson's carries an extensive Glory line. I've tried the veggies in a chicken gravy sauce. It's kind of like a chicken potpie flavor without the chicken and without the crust. Comfort food.

After reading this thread, I bought a can of Glory turnip greens and a can of collard greens. I sauteed 6 cloves of garlic, half an onion and about a quarter pound of pancetta added to the turnip greens, and a little bit of crushed red pepper. Damn tasty good.

I don't buy alot of canned produce, but when I do a couple of things stand out

Blue Runner Products

El Pato brand sauces (they are fabulous)

Goya Black Beans

I rarely eat this stuff, but my kids love it (and can make it themselves) any Zatarains Brand prepackaged meal (red beans and rice, jambalaya, etc.). Made in Louisiana and pretty good (although I feel the salt content is a bit high), not homemade, but that's not the point.

I usually prefer to make greens from what I grow in my own garden or frozen greens so I can season them as I like and not overcook them, but Glory brand greens are mighty well seasoned and make it very tempting to be lazy and just open a can. They are overcooked, to my taste.

I love their field peas with snaps variety; just about made me swear off black-eyed peas, but I can't find them in the stores very often.

Mayhaw Man - just got some Blue Runner beans after seeing them touted on FoodTV. Any tips on what to serve them with, etc., or just straight out of the can?

Also, what's your pick of creole mustards? I like Rex's Horseshoe brand and Luzianne, both available on cajungrocer.com, over the more widely available Zatarains.

I sometimes use them as is, adding sausage (& perhaps thinning a bit), over rice. A Cajun friend told me that his mom--back in the '20s, I would guess--used them, so they have a long history. You could spice them up, though: I like more garlic & some cumin at times.

Thanks for the tip on Rex & Luzianne. I'll try them out.

We tried them at the Southern Womens Show and were given some really
good coupons so I bought a couple cans. The greens are pretty good but not as good as fresh greens which I like to buy at the Farmers Market in the Fall and cook. The fresh ones really do freeze well too.

All of the Glory canned products that I have tried have been good -- much better than other canned veggies, mostly because they are seasoned the way I like them. When I first started seeing their products on the store shelves a few years ago, some of their greens were gritty, as if they had not been sufficiently cleaned before canning. They have apparently solved that quality control problem, however, because I have not noticed it for a good while now.

The field peas, snap peas (the same thing?) smothered potatoes, country cabbage, and crockpot beans are very good. So are the frozen entrees I have tried (jambalaya, rice with chicken and sausage, pork and dressing, and chicken and dumplings). But those are very expensive ($6.99 at Safeway), I only buy them on sale.

Re Glory: They used to have a religious message on the label, but stopped doing that a few years back.

I'm very glad I found this thread. I've been passing these up in the grocery store but now I plan to try them.
I have, in the past, tried Luck's pintos - how does Glory compare?

Dearfolk,
Glory's canned product line is a little more expensive than most others, especially house brands, but the quality is well worth it. I've never been disappointed in anything with their label.
Where are y'all finding Blue Runner products? The only place I ever managed to turn them up was a Sunflower Foods in Antioch, Tennessee... just SE of Nashville. We can't buy them here (Athens, Georgia) - I've tried looking everyplace. My next sojourn to Atlanta, I'll do some hunting in the stores thereabouts. Also, whenever I make it to Alabama, I'll do likewise. You Cajuns can't be keeping all those great Blue Runner products for yourselves!
Nor have I ever seen Rex Mustard hereabouts. My favorite is Woeber's Hot & Spicy Sandwich Pal out of Springfield, Ohio. Another good line is Kopp's (I believe it is) from somewhere in Wisconsin: they have a horseradish mustard that'll really clean out your sinuses.
Speaking of Woeber's, has anyone tried their cranberry horseradish sauce? It sounds wonderful; since I am forced to minimize my sugar intake, I can only hope that it isn't too sweet. Maybe I'm weird, but I like unsweetened cranberries just fine, in spite of the fact that eating them probably removes all the enamel from my teeth!
Apropos you'd start this thread, Redtressed... you are Glorious!

P. S. They'll just have to open that bridge in Portsmouth, Ohio on April 4 without me. I've got a brewfest to attend on April 3... right here in Athens. Any of you who are close and interested, check out www.brewfest.net for more information, or see next week's Flagpole Magazine (www.flagpole) online for my article.

@ ORT...I'll see if they can blow up the new bridge across the Monongahela here and rebuild a new one....to give you something to do


I've just tried the frozen offerings that Glory has, this past week and found them quite good also.

To me, nothing beats fresh or home canned/frozen....but I do think they've done it right as far as "pre-fab" food

All of the Glory products I have tried have been very tasty. The frozen entree's come in very handy after a long, hectic day.

I tried the Lima beans last night and while they were okay, they had a bit of an overwhelming "liquid smoke" type taste. I think I'll stick to my own in this particular category. This was a first. Maybe it was just a bad batch. Has anyone else tried the canned Lima's?

This product line is very good, as others (I see) have attested. I particularly favor the "mixed greens" and other similar canned items. The frozen line of same has been recently been d/ced from my local food emporium(s) due to (???) high costs. There is another purveyor of canned goods ("Margaret Holmes") that, while not as tasty as our current subject, certainly ranks much above par than other offerings. I am a bit biased, perhaps, as the MH entity offers acre peas. Now, to a TRUE southerner, there is NOTHING more sacred than white acre peas and white cornbread with no sweetner (aka sugar) involved in the process. BACON FAT RULES!!!!

Adjudicator,
Margaret Holmes products used to come from a canning plant in Sandersville, Georgia. That plant may yet be open, but the label says "McCall Farms, Effingham, S. C." now. Our local Bell's supermarket carries quite a few of their offerings, and at bargain prices.
As for Bacon Fat, I own that 45 by Andre "Mr. Rhythm" Williams. Gets greasy when ya play it,too. Authentic.

I've lived here all my life, in the northwestern and southeastern areas, and had never heard of Effingham, SC. Effingham, GA, yes, but not SC. So, I googled it and discovered what seems to be a really great news site that I wanted to share:
http://www.topix.net
Apologies in advance for being a wee bit off topic.

P.S. Yes, Virginia, there is an Effingham, SC.

The Southern Womens Show is scheduled for 2 weeks away in Charlote, NC and I noticed that Glory Foods has a booth there again this year.
They always have samples cooked and give away coupons for free cans of the greens and beans and good coupons towards the frozen items also. Looking forward to the show and all of the free food samples and great coupons.

I found Glory greens at Wal-mart a couple 3 years ago. I'm too lazy to cook down my own green so these have been a really good find. I love to cook up a pot of beans, some cornbread and a big can of their mixed greens. Now that is some good eats!

As for black eyes I tend to buy Bush's southern style. If I have any bacon fat around, which I usually do, I'll add a spoon of that to both the black eyes and to the greens. Been known to render down 4 or 5 strips of bacon just to have to add to these products. And my doctor wants to know how my cholosterol is LOW.

I'll have to look at the other Glory products and see if they are available, like the frozen foods.

That doesn't sound too bad. I love a good potpie, so if it's in that neighborhood I better give it a try. Thanks for the tip.

Unfortunately for some of us, many of the Glory Foods have MSG. So... even though they sound good, I haven't bought any for my family after reading the labels.

Speaking of "Glory Foods", most of which I find rather good; I have found yet another variety. Red Beans and Rice. YES. You heard it 1st HERE, CANNED Red Beans and Rice. But WAIT. Don't turn your nose up at it yet. It is passable for a quick lunch or light dinner meal, along with a sandwich. Quite often, I do not get home until it's really too late to cook a "real" meal. I found this stuff at a local grocery store and said "what the hell" & bought two cans. I had @ home already some smoked country sausage. I chunked up a bit o' the sausage & nuked all until it was hot as hades. Added a splash or five of some Louisiana hot sauce. No other seasonings were needed, obviously. I liked it, and so did my stomach.

Thanks for reviving this thread.

As the oddball Northerner who likes greens, but of course lacks the genetic makeup to cook them well, I've been spending a premium price for Sylvia's (in the "International" aisle of our markets ) for years. Glory is the only other brand I've seen in our stores, but they're so much cheaper I was afraid to try them. I'll check them out, soon, and if the sodium count isn't in the danger zone give 'em a try.

Asphalt:

I have used Glory product for years and I truly enjoy them. I think I have bought and tried about every thing they sell. I believe you will be pleased. I believe they all are southern seasoned.

Asphalt, Glory has come out with a "Sensibly Seasoned" line of their products. Lower in Salt at least.

The interesting thing about Glory's "Southern" foods is the fact that it originated in Columbus, Ohio.

And, yes, they have some really terrific stuff.

Attached is the link to their website for those who may have an interest.

I have never noted their products being salty however I like salt. I really like their collard greens.

"Get a Rope" is the Pace Picante ad slogan for folks who get their salsa from NYC. They probably only run that ad in Texas and Oklahoma.

Glory does make real good canned stuff. I am still looking for their Hopin John at the stores near me.

I buy the Allen's brand of pole beans all of the time. They are pretty good, especially when seasoned with a packet of GOYA brand ham seasoning.

One time I bought them and they were tough. I sent them an email and they sent me a real nice sampler basket.

Hmmmmmm. I had some of their "mixed greens" (kale, collards, turnip greens) the other day; and THEY were a bit tough, also. Hmmmmmmm...

For the best of both worlds (or brands) try mixing a can of Glory red beans with a can of Blue Runner red beans. Add some Andouille sausage and serve it over rice. Don't tell anybody, hide the cans, and let them think you've been cooking all day.

I found this stuff at a local grocery store and said "what the hell" & bought two cans. I had @ home already some smoked country sausage. I chunked up a bit o' the sausage & nuked all until it was hot as hades. Added a splash or five of some Louisiana hot sauce. No other seasonings were needed, obviously. I liked it, and so did my stomach.


Who carries it, Publix, Wal-Mart?

Thanks,

John

I buy the Glory Red Beans and Rice in the "International" [sic] aisle at Meijer, where they have the southern/New Orleans food items.

In the vegetable aisle they have the greens, and another favorite of mine, the Sweet Potato Casserole. It is a great side dish with pork. There is a recipe on the can for sweet potato pie, which I haven't yet tried.

Their green bean casserole has done okay, for me, in a pinch. I just add some fried onions {FYI~it is watery, and not quite like making it yourself}.

The country cabbage was good, too.

Ashphalt:
My local Kroger was discontinuing Sylvia's greens, and a bought a couple of cans of mixed for @ $.75. Are they pretty good?

I ate at Sylvia's in NYC a little while ago and I was dissapointed. I have not bought any of her canned products because of that.

In addition, I was intimidated with the local area of Sylvia's. I recoginize that the neighborhood is part of the ambience but it was too much for me.

I found mine @ a SuperWally's, John. If you can find their red beans (no rice), etc., just as good except better rice, since you make your own. All of Glory products I have tasted are really good. Margaret Holmes NOW releasing similar things, so I expect them to be good also. A thing about MH's products -- this is only manufacturer that I can find that has White Acre field peas. A delicacy in my part of the woods. Yes, fresh IS better, but...
