We’re so excited to have Troyer’s Spices in our store.  Since so many of you bought or received them throughout December, we thought we’d give you some quick ideas on how to use some of them!

Fish:

The Fish 10 Spice, Citrus Herb 8 Spice, or the Dill Popcorn Seasoning Salt are amazing on fish.  Try drizzling some of our plain EVOO all over the fish (or one of our many flavours, like Roasted Garlic or Butter), then sprinkle the spices evenly on the pieces. Let sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes then cook as usual, and your taste buds will thank you!

Chicken and Pork:

Looking for some new flavours to mix into your weekly meals? Give one of the following a try next time you have chicken or pork chop night: Debbie’s Awesome BBQ Rub, Caribbean 6 Spice, Citrus Herb 8 Spice, Italian 6 Spice, or Poultry 8 Spice. Just coat the meat with our EVOO or a flavoured Olive Oil that will pair well with the seasoning. Then evenly coat with spices, marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours and cook as usual.

Steak:

Debbie’s Awesome BBQ Rub and Troyer’s Garlic Pepper Onion blend are incredible ways to spice up your next steak. Simply coat the steak with our EVOO or flavoured Olive Oil, coat with your desired seasoning, marinate for 2 – 12 hours and cook your favourite way!

Vegetables:

No more bland veggies – take things up a notch with Troyer’s Citrus Herb 8 Spice, Italian 6 Spice, or their delicious Vegetable 8 Spice. Toss the veggies in our EVOO or flavoured Olive Oil, add in or sprinkle on one of the blends and prepare them the way you love them (Try oven roasted… oh my…)

Popcorn:

Troyer’s has created some delectable popcorn seasonings. From BBQ to Dill. There are many ways to use seasonings like this on your popcorn, but our two favourite ways are:

  1. Heat our EVOO or flavoured Olive Oil in a large heavy pot. When it gets hot, toss in your kernels. Have your seasoning ready because as soon as that first kernel pops you are going to add in your seasoning, mix well (and quickly!) and put the lid back on until everything’s popped. This method gives you a more intense end result.
  2. Air pop your popcorn and then drizzle or spray on your favourite Olive~Me & Co EVOO or flavoured Olive Oil, then sprinkle on your Troyer’s seasoning and mix well.

We even carry “Straws” of the spices ranging from $1 to $1.35 so you can take home samples and experiment with them before purchasing a larger bag or jar (these also maker terrific gifts!)

With such a large selection of spices, seasonings, salts and rubs, these are just a few ways to use Troyer’s Spices. Get creative! Let us know YOUR favourite ways to use them.
