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.

                  Wasn't it the El Paso salsa that was "made in NYC!!!".

                    "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 am not sure what Glory,s sensibily seasoned foods are. My guess is that it contains less salt?

                        I believe Allen's brand has canned greens.

                          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.

                            Correct, Paul.

                              Adjudicator: Collard greens and they are my favorite. Glory does a real good job with them.

                              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.

                                          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.

                                          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.

                                          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...
