It was a little different than my own Mom's way so I learned her way too. Really didn't matter since Himself pretty much hasn't met a pork chop he hasn't liked.

Whoa baby, you wait for this one! I simmer it 6-8 hours! Now that Himself is home all the time it's pure torture for him when I make a pot (about 8 quarts at a time). I used to make it when he was at work so he was never subjected to yummy smells all day.

Mrs Hoot makes her spaghetti sauce much the same way. She often puts slices of dried chorizo in it (when we can find it). Of course, near the end of the cooking time, I am not above sneaking into the kitchen and stealing a small bowl of the sauce to be eaten with a nice crusty bread.

Funny you should say that! We had some landscapers working on drainage issues in our yard a couple autumns ago. They came in to give me their empty coffee cups and smelled the sauce cooking. I ended up taking out a bowl and a couple chunks of bread to them a little while later. We gave them good food (coffee all day and fresh scones in the mornings) and they did good work. Bribery!

Thumbs up Penzeys ~ The "Results" Show

Oh My! I wonder, was Marco Polo that excited when he got to China? It was fun. Lots of fun since Himself got bored about 5-10 minutes in and went to the car to read. I had an hour to myself sniffing (and sneezing) and reading and looking. Restrained myself from drooling. And came home with a bunch of plastic bags and glass bottles.

Now the damage. Can you believe I had only $30 worth of damage? I did buy a lot of the spices and herbs in the bags since I have spice bottles at home. I didn't get any of their blends because, quite honestly, I thought there were so many different flavors mixed into each that they didn't smell the way I would want. Guess I'd just rather blend my own 3-5 items and leave it at that. There were one or two that were good but they duplicated blends I had at home.

Kinda wish there was closer than 59 miles away. When we move back to OH we'll probably settle in to the city we moved from when we came up to MA. That will be only 24 miles away. Bonus: it's right by a Cleveland culinary landmark, West Side Market. If you are ever in the Cleveland area you must schedule a stop there - it's priceless!

I've seen pictures someone else posted of that market. It looks awesome.
Sometimes when my sister and BIL take a drive they will head to the Penzeys in Chagrin Falls and I can place an order with them. No delivery charge, lol.

it must be really humiliating to live there.

wasn't it bad enough to call it chagrin, but then to add falls?

lol.


celery seed is an under used spice, imo. it's a sneaky background kind of thing. i use it in steak or chicken rubs.

never thought to use it in sauce, though.

I gotta say that I am green with envy....
The nearest Penzey's store from Casa de Hoot is in Raleigh and I was there a couple of weeks ago but due to circumstances beyond my control, I didn't have time to go spice adventuring. There is a store in Richmond, Va....maybe I will be able to go there soon.

I've never even been near an actual store. I just have faith in our members and took their word when I got a catalog in my hands. Yes, I am easily led astray...Very glad you had fun!
