Penzey's

I think the chili powder comes in 3 "strengths". I normally use the medium.

Do you all know that they just started up a magazine - called "one"? I rec'd a complimentary copy of the charter issue - yeah, I think I'll be subscribing. It's a bit pricey but well done. I've been buying all my spices from them for many years - since they were a catalog company with 1 store. I have always been so pleased with everything about them. I love to see the progress they are making.

Yeah I got a free copy too Corinne. I liked it, but I don't think I will be subscribing. I just can't justify the cost right now. It was a very nice mag though!

I got no free copy ...

GB, I usually use the medium chili powder when I am making something in which I add other hot stuff. So I can control the heat better. By itself, i think their "hot" one is just right.

Thanks Jenny! I guess I know what I will be buying the next time I am there

I used the hot in my dry rub recipe. It usually calls for cayenne pepper, but I left that out. Even still it was too hot (well for most of the people I know, but not for me LOL).

You are going to have a blast Kitchenelf! Bring a wad of cash

They have these jars (at least at the one by us) filled with each spice so you can open it up and smell it. That is so much fun! Check out the ground chipotle pepper too if they have it. Very similar to the smoked Spanish paprika, but with a kick.

I might just have to take a little empty suitcase - something tells me I'm going to be really bad there!!!!! And I get to go to Trader Joe's too - never been to one - ok, maybe an extra medium sized suitcase instead of little

I've made a note on the ground chipotle pepper! Thanks.

better invest in a small private jet if you are going to both Penzys and Trader Joes, and maybe someone to help you lug all the stuff up to the cash register and then help you load it on the plane!

Oh, you'll have a blast!! Make sure to smell the stuff, too. Most of the products are displayed with a glass container of it so you can "smell before you buy."

Moved to our new Food Talk forum.

There was a brand new Penzey's that opened in Portland - my sister said it would take too long to get there (we were going to Seaside, I landed in Portland) - whaaaaaaa I never got there I was so psyched - I had directions and everything.
