Watkins Purest Granulated Black Pepper

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Watkins Black-PepperDid you know Black Pepper improves digestion and promotes intestinal health?

When it comes to the world’s most important spice, use the best – Watkins purchases the best Malabar and Lampong peppercorns available. We prefer to use these top-grade peppercorns, known for their high essential oil content, in our exclusive grinding process because they retain more flavor. Rather than crushing the peppercorns into dust, we chip each berry into fine particles. This process creates less friction, generates less heat and retains the peppercorn’s essential oils.

Watkins Purest Granulated All-Natural Black Pepper is available in four sizes;

2 ounce just $3.99

4 ounce just $6.29

6 ounce just $9.99

12 ounce just $16.49

The 12 ounce value size means lower cost per serving.

Call us to order yours, 626-536-3654, click Watkins Online Store on the right of this page, or visit us at the Monrovia Family Festival in Monrovia on Myrtle Avenue, every Friday 5-9.IMG_2032

Watkins BBQ sauceOther Watkins Barbecue Sauce Ideas:

Use on chicken, turkey, pork and beef for basting on the grill or in the oven. Mix one tablespoon of BBQ sauce into 8 oz. of cream cheese plus 1/2 tsp. Watkins Cayenne Pepper to make a cheese ball. Add to browned ground meat with addition of ketchup and a small amount of brown sugar for Sloppy Joes. It’s great on any sandwich…open face brush on BBQ sauce and place under broiler pan for one minute or less!

Great Grill Marks from Taste of Home Magazine

Trying to get those lovely grill marks on food, but always miss the mark? Add a little honey to your marinade or sauce. The sugar in the honey caramelizes when grilled and creates the grill marks. One teaspoon to 1 tablespoon should do the trick, depending on the amount of marinade or sauce. You can even use this trick when cooking foods on the stove. Brush meat, chicken or fish with honey and saute in a nonstick pan coated with cooking spray to give it a golden-brown color.

Bon appetit!
