Mary's Secret Ingredients always comes so well packaged. When you open the box it looks like the picture above. So far all 3 boxes I have received have looked like this when I got ithem. You would never know it had traveled through the mail because everything is perfectly in it's place. There is a lot of tissue paper in between everything to make sure nothing gets broken. I love the care they put into their packaging.
This is a perfect spatula for me because I always like to cut into my meat to make sure it's cooking inside. That serrated edge is going to come in handy!
I don't even think I need to add any words to this. Who wouldn't love this flavor?
Sprinkle Falksalt Crystal Flakes Citron: These light flakes add a burst of bright lemon flavor to everything from fish and vegetables to ice cream and chocolate. Bake, cook or just top off your favorite dish before serving. Be daring!
I have never heard of this product, but it seems quite intriguing. I imagine I will try this on plenty of different things.
Kalamata PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Olive oil is the true "juice of life" and is a secret shared by people at the Mediterranean basin for ages. The land of Messenia, at the southwester end of Peloponnese in Greece, produces fine oil of the "koroneiki" olive variety. Harmonian selects only its top quality crops and embottles their most precious extracts with the utmost care. This oil is silky in texture, keen in flavor, and rich in aroma, extra virgin and high quality. It can be enjoyed both raw and cooked.
Well to me olive oil is olive oil and this one came at just the right time because my Trader Joe's olive oil was just about gone.
Smolder Spice Grinder - Elements of Spice by Kalk Bay: A few grinds of this mix will conjure up barbeque fun. Everyone's favorite spices, artisanally cold smoked over beech chips, make the perfect seasoning for meat on the grill.
I love spice grinders and this one will come in handy to give us the bbq flavor when I'm grilling indoors on the Foreman this winter.
Spinach Mix Dip (gluten-free): This special combination of seasonings not only has incredible taste, but it is a delightful complement to fresh vegetables, crackers, baked potatoes, seafood or pasta salad, or use dry as a seasoning.
This seems very versatile so I'll probably end up putting it on veggies as a seasoning. That's the way I tend to like to use these kinds of spice/dip packets.
The Perfect Poach: Finally, a solution to make a perfect, delicious poached egg EVERY SINGLE TIME without oil or butter. These handy bags take the guesswork and mess out of poaching eggs. Simply crack an egg into the pouch -- use one pouch for each egg -- immerse immediately into simmering water, and remove after 4 to 6 minutes. Slide your perfectly poached egg onto a plate and enjoy. Bags can only be used once but they are recyclable, biodegradable, and non-stick.
I always made poached eggs by simply dropping the cracked egg into boiling water - isn't that how you're supposed to make them? I never used oil or butter, so I'm not sure what they are talking about here. The bags look like a fun thing to try though, so I may try them out at some point.
