I am not a Southerner, but I love pulled pork. And not the sweet sauced Kansas City version, but with the vinegary, spicy North Carolina sauce. I'm not a true aficionado as I don't my pork butt in a smoked house for hours and hours, but I certainly appreciate that method! One of these days...

I love playing with colors, flavors and texture on a cheese platter. The vibrant fontina-stuffed pepperdews, the briny tartness of marinated mushrooms, artichoke hearts and olives, spicy salami, naturally sweet dates, and of course, an eclectic selection of creamy cheese all create a feast for t...

My entire family loves Nutmeg Kitchens spice blends. All of her spices are organically sourced and lovingly mixed to combine herbs and seasonings that give all my recipes a special touch. I love experimenting with my tried and true recipes by adding any one of Nutmeg Kitchens blends. I can’t get over how wonderfully my chicken tortilla soup turned out when I added a touch of Ian’s Fire! You’ve got to try these blends. They are spectacular!

Nutmeg Kitchens Handcrafted Seasonings

But the most important ingredient is love.  4 ounce bags are $10.00 each, Seasoned Quartet of all four blends is $38.00.  Call 650.740.5637 or email, if you would like to purchase our seasoning blends. You may also order and pay via Venmo: @Margaret-MacKenzie-1.

Ian’s Fire Blend – A force to be reckoned with, just like the young man for whom it is named.  Ancho chiles, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes and cayenne lay a spicy foundation for cumin, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, nutmeg and cinnamon to bring balance, sweetness and depth of flavor to this special blend.  Use Ian’s Fire in place of chili powder to add heat and sweetness to everything from fish tacos to pulled pork to roasted potatoes. Be inspired and let your culinary imagination run wild! Ian will like that!      

Magic Mediterranean Blend - Cumin and fennel seeds lend their distinctive aromas to this blend’s unique flavor. Ground sumac berries, citrus zest, thyme, sesame seeds, celery seeds and ground cloves add subtlety, making this the perfect go-to seasoning. Enliven scrambled eggs and omelets; give a piquant boost to roasted seasonal vegetables; sprinkle on steaks, pork chops or chicken and provide a kick to soups and stews. Your everyday fare becomes anything but every day.

Chipotle-Brown Sugar Rub – In addition to the two titular ingredients, this mélange of sea salt, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, garlic powder and black pepper is perfect on any grilled meat, especially pork. But why stop there? Toss popcorn with Chipotle-Brown Sugar Rub and butter for an unforgettable movie night treat. 

Aloha Java Blend – This blend marries Hawaiian alaea red salt and organic coffee with kosher sea salt, ginger, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, Sichuan peppercorns and smoked paprika.  It’s a spicy, smoky taste of the islands that adds both heat and sweetness to grilled or roasted fish, pork, beef or chicken, or anything else you want to play with. Aloha, indeed!

Abracadabra Blend - Say the magic word to open up the fascinating flavors of Abracadabra.  Conjure this: The warmth of star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander and allspice melded with the earthiness of ground cumin orange zest and sage, and the subtle heat of ginger. Organic granulated and kosher sea salt unite this enchanting blend.  You will be off on a culinary flying carpet exploring how Abracadabra takes salmon, grilled pork tenderloin, braised beef short ribs, stir fry chicken and roasted vegetables on a magical mystery tour!      

Seasoned Sampler Pocket - 4 ounce ounce bags of each blend introduces the new cook or the kitchen veteran to the entire array of Nutmeg's flavors. $12.00 each.
