Corned Beef Spices are easy to use and are available from 1 oz. samplers to 50 lb. bulk.  Order now.

At Home Farm Herbery we have been corning beef for years and we use our own Epicurean, Gourmet Corned Beef Spices or Seasoning as some of our customers call it.
In our Home Farm Herbery Kitchen we use it for Corned Beef, brisket, pastrami and other meat.  It is easy to use.  Simply add approximately 1 tablespoon for each pound of meat.

We have created a spicy, powerful taste with a combination of many flavors and the complexity of our blend makes it have a wonderful aroma. Order now.




Home Farm Herbery’s New York Pizza Sauce Seasoning is hand blended from basil, marjoram, savory, ground rosemary, ground thyme, sage, oregano and parsley.

Regardless of the sauce or the crust the secret to great NY-style sauce is to achieve the perfect balance between acidity, heat, sweetness and a noticeable herbal base with a texture that's thick enough to keep your pizza from getting soggy but still thin enough to spread. 

Now while many of us prefer using fresh herbs over dried herbs when possible our pizza guy prefers using dried herbs in his classic pizza sauce. Because savory herbs tend to grow in dry relatively hot climates they remain relatively stable at high temperatures as the real flavor is contained deep inside the leaf.

Some people think the key to a good pizza seasoning is cut and sifted but we know the key to the herbs used in this pizza sauce blend is that some of them are ground. This is especially critical with the ground thyme and ground rosemary as when using these in the normal dried state they tend to create more flavor explosions which makes the sauce less smooth.

Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe

 


Serves: 4 Adults Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients:

Semolina flour

2 pizza crusts split into 4 mini pizzas*

2 cups cooked, shredded chicken

 

1/4 cup BBQ sauce per pizza

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


 
Method:

Prepare your toppings and get them all ready to go outside near the grill. Place them in easy to get bowls and containers. You will want to move quickly so have them all ready. It's easy to carry them out there in a cookie sheet or large melt-proof platter.

On a separate upturned cookie sheet, or pizza peel, spread semolina across the surface to create a non-stick surface. Divide your dough into four portions and press out into mini pizza shapes, about 1/4 inch thick. Keeping them mini-sized helps make them much more manageable on the grill for a beginner.

Grease your grill grates. Heat your grill up to medium to medium-high heat, around 400-425 degrees. Place your pizza crusts on the hot grill by turning the cookie sheet over on to the grill. The pizza crusts should slide off.

Close the lid on the grill and cook for 2-4 minutes until the crust is golden and has dark grill marks on the bottom. Use a spatula and tongs to carefully turn the crusts over and cook a quick minute or so to harden the bottom crust.

Remove the pizzas from the grills to your waiting cookie sheets. Add the BBQ sauce, chicken, pizza seasoning mix and mozzarella cheese to each pizza. Then carefully return the pizzas back to the grill to continue cooking.

Close the lids and cook an additional 4-6 minutes until the toppings are hot, the cheese is melted and the bottom crust is crispy and golden.

 Remove the pizzas from the grill and serve immediately. Enjoy!

 Use your favorite pizza crust recipe, box mix, or frozen loaf.

 
Tips on making essential oils from your garden herbs

 

Three Essential Tips for Success

The process of preserving herbs as aromatic oils is called infusion because the herbs are treated so that their herbal essences “infuse” the oil in which they are immersed.  For this reason essential oils are often called herbal infusions.

 

Pay careful attention to the three important tips below when you make your infused oils.  If you do then preserving your herbs in the way described will produce really high quality herbal infusions:

 

Use a good-quality, mild-flavored oil such as sunflower oil. You don’t want the taste of the oil to compete with the flavor and smell of your herbs. For this reason you should avoid using extra virgin olive oil

 

Cover you herbs completely with oil during the infusing process. Any bits sticking out will oxidize and spoil the flavor of the oil

 

Before storing the oil make sure you have removed all the plant material. If you don’t the oil will become cloudy and sour.

 

Recommended herbs are: marjoram,


 


 


 

 

and  Rosemary
 

If you want to make essential oils for cooking, you can use basil.

 

Spices to use: Cinnamon,


 Cloves,

Cumin and nutmeg (grated) are the best for homemade oils. Use a pestle or mortar to crush them before adding them to oil.

Citrus to use: The zest of citrus fruits can be used to make homemade essential oils. Use them sparingly in mixtures. About 2-3 strips of zest per bottle.

 

 
 

Foods that Put me in the Mood©

Foods that Put me in the Mood©

 

By Arlene Wright-Correll

 

I really do not need any special kind of food to put me in a good mood because each and every day I find myself still above ground puts me in a good mood.  Now I do not say I stay that way each and every day, but I try, I try!

 

I’m a cooker and I can easily say I am a good cook, no lets make that a very good cook plus I like to eat and when one is pushing 80 there are not a lot of old friends or old family members left standing to cook for, plus the kids and grandkids are all over this planet doing their own thing. Plus really old people seem to lose their appetite as the years go on.  I am not one of them.

 

With all that in mind I guess I have to turn the tables around and write about what food I may be in the mood for.  I think you know what I mean.  I go for days and even weeks without having any pizza.  Getting a pizza in my neck of the woods is a joke for an old broad from Brooklyn.  Kentucky pizza really does not do the trick even though Domino’s Pizza has come up with a sausage and 3 peppers Artisan pizza that is tolerable.  However, the closet Domino’s is a 70 mile round trip for me.  So as they say in Brooklyn, “Ferget about it!”

 

When the pizza mood hits me I get out the flour, yeast, salt and water and make up a good batch of my own pizza dough.  I really get into it. I bake on stone any way for my Artisan breads and I have a couple of restaurant size pizza peels.  I even have two kitchens with two stoves and if I was 20 years younger I would hire someone to build me a stone hearth out in my cottage garden in a New York Heart Beat!  Also my recipe is a good one and it will keep in the refrigerator for 14 days or the freezer for 3 months and that allows me to have everything at hand.

 

I grow my own tomatoes at Home Farm Herbery and I make a Cracker Jack pizza sauce and freeze them up in the fall.  So I haul one of those little dudes out and along the way I decided there was just something missing.  After a year of experimenting I finally developed a Pizza Seasoning that just was perfect at least perfect to me.  Matter of fact this pizza seasoning is so good we now offer it at Home Farm Herbery’s on-line store.

 

Often when I am in the mood I will make up a batch of homemade Mozzarella cheese and put the balls into the freezer and that comes in handy.

 

Now here I am in the mood for some good pizza. Do I do anything about it?  Not for a day at least because I could just get everything out of the freezer and defrost it, thus making the pizza. No I wait at least until the stuff thaws out by itself.  This is called whetting the appetite.

 

Once one has everything on hand it only takes a few minutes to make a pizza so I always make two of them when I am alone.  Once when we had a crowd in I made 22 of them! 

 

However, just for me I only make two small ones with each one giving me 4 good size slices of pie.  I finally get to satisfy my mood.  Yet you may wonder what I do with the second one.

 

Well, old habits die hard and I have a lot of years behind me of eating cold leftover pizza for breakfast and that is what the second one is for.

 

When all is said and done the mood is finally satisfied.

 

If anyone wants my pizza dough recipe it is included free, with free shipping when they order my Pizza Seasoning.
