The canisters pictured above were bought at Nona’s Downtown Market in Owensboro, but Bourbon Barrel Foods are available in a lot of Kentucky cities (click here for the list of Kentucky retailers) as well as other states. You can also shop online for the wide variety of excellent Bourbon Barrel Foods.
Now that we’ve gotten the details out of the way, let me tell you why you’ll want to load up on these flavorful foods.
So far, I’ve tried and thoroughly enjoyed the Bourbon Smoked Pepper, Bourbon Smoked Sea Salt, and Bourbon Smoked Sugar. To date, I’ve used these flavorful (and uncommonly fragrant!) seasonings on/in…
Bourbon Smoked Pepper and Salt:
- fried fish
- grilled hamburgers
- navy beans
- baked beans
- green beans
- sliced tomatoes
Continued beneath the gorgeous picture below….
- hot tea
- candied bacon (unreal flavor!)
- sprinkled on fruit
- cinnamon toast
- sprinkled on applesauce
I’ve also been shamelessly guilty of dolloping whipped topping on Chai Tea Lattes, Coffee, and Hot Chocolate – then sprinkling some Bourbon Smoked Sugar on top.
There’s positively no way for me to convey to you the insane flavor these seasonings give food. Basically they take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
As a bonus, I love the idea of supporting a Kentucky based business. Absolutely love the idea to distraction.
Do yourself and anyone you cook for a huge favor and check out the Bourbon Barrel Foods website, then hook yourself up with all the flavor your taste buds can handle! I can’t wait to try the Bourbon-Madagascar Vanilla, Bourbon Smoked Vanilla Sugar , Bourbon Smoked Paprika, and Mint Julep Sugar.
Are you kidding me? How delicious must each of these be?!
They also have gift baskets, gift sets, grill wood, and a great looking coffee mug. The prices are all very reasonable, too, which is another agreeable bonus.
Whatever you do, be sure to grab the salt and pepper – when you introduce the flavors to bacon, you’ll be happy dancing all over the kitchen floor.
