Greg received a new shipment in this week from The Garlic Box.
I decided that I would introduce you to this line of seasonings as
we personally really appreciate them in our own cooking and entertaining.
This is a company we discovered while at a food show a number of years ago,
and every year their product lists continue to impress us with their creativity and versatility.

In the box this week, we first noticed the recipe cards.
That was a great bonus – Almost all the products came with a recipe card.
This means I’m not buying some Carmelized Onion Garlic Potato Seasoning
just because it sounds delicious,
but then get home and it sits in my cupboard forever
because I’m not sure how or when to use it.

Now I know that I can use it to make some Caramelized Onion & Garlic Irish Whiskey Soup. Talk about tempting!

Or I can use the Horseradish Garlic Condiment to create a delicious Smoked Salmon Appetizer

I had no idea that Garlic and Cranberries would be a thing,
but reading the Turkey Burger with Brie recipe card had my taste buds
dreaming of my next lunch date with a friend.

The two seasoning choices we have this time are

Turkey Chili Garlic

(which comes with a Turkey Chili Recipe)

and Garlic & Rosemary Poultry Rub

For all you bread dippers out there, this is my personal, absolutely favourite dipping sauce:

The Super Garlicky Bread Dipper
with real Blue Cheese

Need I say more? Blue Cheese. Mmmm.

Yes? I do? Ok, then.

The Garlic Box is a family-run business, located in Hensall, Ontario.
Yeah, I didn’t know where Hensall was, either, until I Googled it.
Turns out we drive right past it (ok, maybe it’s a country block or two out of our way)
on the way to my family’s cottage weekend every year.
It’s just northwest of Grand Bend, just north of Exeter.
Now I realize we will have to make a detour this spring to check them out in person.

The Garlic Box

The Garlic Box people are dedicated to bringing locally grown garlic to my kitchen that is
non-GMO, non-irradiated, pesticide free, grown from heirloom seed stock and 100% Canadian.
I’m not even sure what some of that means, but Google will help with that, too. 
( I’m sure they are dedicated to bringing it to your kitchen, too.
I’m just paraphrasing their website write-up. )


The Garlic Box website tells me that Garlic is recognized for all sorts of good things.
I’m not going to bother re-writing it all out, if you don’t want to just take my word for it,
you can check out their “about” page here.
And if you don’t want to take their word for it,
you can check out any number of links besides their own.
Thankfully, we live in a Google age and information like that is just a search engine away.

Oh, I forgot one:
