You purchased some ripe tomatoes and cool cucumbers from the farmers’ market. While you are enjoying summer’s bounty of vegetables with olive oil, salt and pepper and perhaps some fresh basil, you may be seeking new ways to prepare these summertime treats.
If this sounds familiar, check out Sugar Spice and Everything Nice, a business out of Dover, Delaware, selling a myriad of mixes to enhance vegetables and fruits as well as fish and meats. Visit the online shop at http://www.shopforsugarandspice.com or browse the mixes at a Delaware farmers’ market (the market schedule is listed on the website).
Owner Tina Bradbury offers dip, pickling and cocktail mixes in addition to meat rubs. Perhaps you wish to make your own bread and butter pickles for grilled burgers…Sugar Spice has a mix for you!
I combined the guacamole mix with some fresh tomatoes and avocado and the roasted garlic and herb mix with olive oil and found both tasty. Each mix comes with recipe suggestions and instructions, yet you can be creative. For example, as I am generally not a fan of sour cream and mayonnaise based dips, I would consider blending some of the herb mixes into hummus or into butter to season chicken or fish.
This just scratches the surface of Sugar Spice’s products. Discover them for yourself this summer…and happy mixing!
