New Products--Sauces and Seasonings

Two new lines of products were announced at convention, a sauce line, and a spice line.   As most of you know I’m a part of the product advisory board and I’ve had the opportunity over the past few months to try all the spices and sauces, and I can’t tell you how excited I am for these new lines.  I’m more excited about this then about anything we have launched for a long time. 

All sauces are:
·         Original blends developed in house
·         GMO Free
·         Certified Gluten Free
·         10 year shelf life
·         Come in the pantry can size
·         MSG Free

Veloute: A rich Chicken Gravy.    ID number  22601.   My family really likes this in chicken dishes like chicken pot pie.  It is a good replacement for cream of chicken soup in casseroles.  We also like it to use it as gravy over potatoes.

Bechamel: A creamy white sauce.  ID number 22602.   Bechamel works great to make Alfredo, cheese sauce, or potato soup. 

Espagnole: Beef Gravy.  ID number 22603.  Espagnole is amazing over a roast in the crock pot (add more water than the directions say).  It is also great as the base for beef stew, or over mashed potatoes. 

Tomato: ID number 22604. This rich red tomato sauce makes great spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or tomato soup. 

THRIVE Seasonings
All seasonings are:
·         Certified Gluten Free
·         Have a 25 year shelf life—this is due to the unique packaging.  The spice jar is metal with a pop top lid (like the pantry cans), once the pop top is removed the plastic lid is like the spice jars from the grocery store, one side is a “shake” side and the other is a “pour” side.
·         Freeze Dried Herbs (all are freeze dried except the peppercorn blend and the Chef’s choice) should be used like fresh herbs.  In a recipe that calls for dry herbs you need to use the fresh equivalent which is 3 times as much.  So if your recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of dry basil, then you need to use 3 teaspoons of FD basil.
