Gumbo Memories

My late mother was from Jennings, La. and my late father was from New Iberia, La.  I remember my grandmother speaking Cajun French.  Said all that to say "I knows my Gumbo."  Sadly when they all passed away they took their Gumbo Recipe's with them.

I decided this summer to do a serious search for a gumbo mix that hopefully would be good enough so I could make myself some every once in a while.  I went to multiple stores and tried every mix I could find.  They were better than nothing, but fell short of what my late relatives used to make.  Yours was the last brand I tried.  It was so simple to make, I figured why am I even fooling with this.

Then I tasted it. WOW! And I mean WOW! ...... Did my Grandmother leave her recipe to you folks in her will? Your gumbo is 150% authentic each and every time I make it.  So easy to make I make it all the time now.  I gave it away as a stocking stuffer at Christmas.

Thank you Ragin Cajun for bringing back those old cherished Gumbo Memories.

Spicy Sweet Jalapeno Relish...BEST EVER!!

First off, I'm not a fan of relish.  Never had. We had a BBQ a few days ago and my husband's friend brought over this small little jar and said, 'you have to try this'.  I just finished off the jar.  That spicy of the jalapenos hits you then the sweetness takes over, and it is the best tasting relish I will ever have.  Thank you so much for making this.  I have put this on my dogs, nachos, tacos, chips, eggs, steaks, burgers just about anything that I could put this on it has gone on.   I'm going to the grocery store to try and find another jar, hopefully a bigger jar.  Our meals now revolve around what can I make to ensure that this goes on whatever I have made.  Pure greatness!  
Thank you again!!

Hi,
My family will be cooking some Seafood gumbo using your Cajun Creole ROUX in the 16 oz jar. We had a crawfish boil yesterday and have some crawfish and boiled shrimp left over. So my daughter in laws want me to make them a gumbo. I research your web page to get a good recipe. So here goes my best shot at making them a really good gumbo. I want to let you know that your web site is very easy to use and very helpful. Thank you for being there when I needed help and guidance.  

PS…I am a world class BBQ cooker..My specialty is Whole Hog. I won world champion in the Memphis in May world BBQ cooking contest. I know nothing about cooking Gumbo but I am excited to learn. Your company seems to have some really good products. I am excited to try them out and share some of the good food with family and friends.

My wife is a Registered Dietician with a Masters in Nutrition.  She uses your spice exclusively for taste, lack of impurities and overall benefit to the outcome of the dish.  We will be giving these out soon to our friends. 

 

Keep up the good spice work!!!!

you asked how your customers use this?

Bobby Flay has a great grilled shrimp salad served over greens that also has grilled corn, and crumbled tortilla chips on top.  These jalapeno slices (he calls for pickled, I prefer yours) add exactly the right spice to the salad. It's become a weekly summer fave, sometimes done with chicken, too. 

Mmmmm


I want to share the joy that I have now that I have found your Spicy Sweet Jalapeño Relish. My mother is a connoisseur of all things spicy, and she's brought some pretty interesting condiments home. One day, I came home from work and she had made some chili dogs for me (she didn't plan to eat one). She decided before she left that she would have one, and she went to the fridge and pulled out this jar with an orange label. Now, I'm a fan of jalapenos, so I was interested. She put the jar up to my nose to smell... I immediately put down my plate of chili dogs, got my car keys back off of the hook and left the house. I drove to the corner store for 2 bottles of Bud Light, came back and put the jalapeño relish on my chili dogs.

That was 4-5 months ago. I have not had a chili dog without your Spicy Sweet Jalapeno Relish since. I've had the opportunity to eat one without it, and I have passed. I've since turned coworkers and my best friend (my main food testing buddy) onto this hidden treasure. My friend lost his mind and has been scouring the city looking for his own jar.

Meanwhile, I've put the stuff on hamburgers, beans and rice, and as I am typing this, I'm enjoying an "enhanced" bowl of chili. This stuff doesn't quit. So don't quit making it! :)

Your Ten Bean Soup is the best “beans and rice” dish I have ever tasted.  My family was experimenting with new flavors about a year ago and fell in love with the Ten Bean Soup.  We were quite sad for a few months when we couldn’t find it at our local grocer.  When they got the product back in stock, we bought several bags to make sure we’d have some for a while. 

Thanks for this great combination of beans and spices.  I have yet to find its equal.

Hello,

I was introduced to the Red Beans package by a lady in the Kroger grocery store. She was purchasing several bags of them and told me they were the best. Of course I had to try them and she was right. They are sinfully good.

I put link sausage in mine and I have served them several times. I received a Gift Package for Christmas and I am enjoying the products. My next favorite product is the Blue Magnolia Classic Cinnamon Bread Pudding mix. I prepared it today for a luncheon and it was the best I have ever ate. The sauce recipe is wonderful. Everyone wanted the recipe! I am so glad to be able to order from you website. I am placing a big order. Thanks for all the great products.

Dear Southern Seasonings,

I find myself cooking your fabulous Ten Bean Soup very early this morning. My brother, who lives in Kenner, sends me a dozen packages every few months.  I noticed this morning after all this time that I could contact you. First, I would love if you would send a recipe pamphlet to me.  Secondly, I was wondering if your products are available on the East Coast or possibly by direct mail order.  I am only familiar with the Ten Bean Soup.  Could you send me a list of your other products so I pester my brother into sending me other goodies?

Rhonda, Edison, NJ


My husband loves your Cajun Style Black Bean Soup. I serve it over a bed of rice with Polish sausage. It's wonderful!!

Thank you, 
Sharon, Waynesboro, TN


Hi,

Someone gave me this package of Cajun Style Pinto Beans.  I cooked them as directed. We loved them. 
So. Thanks. Will look for more somewhere.

Sylvia, Duncan, OK


Hi,

We've really enjoyed your product.  We would like recipes and other product information.  We like trying new things.  We also like to eat.

Thanks,
Patricia, Hartselle, AL


Bootsie's:

I've tried your Cajun Red Beans with chunks of chicken - EXCELLENT!!  I use your Jambalaya Dinner package quite often, we love that one.

Please send my recipe pamphlet a.s.a.p.  I'd like to know what the "spices" are in the Cajun Beans??

Thank you,
Ben, Vista, CA


Loyal fans of your products even to the point that before we could find them here in Georgia we had friends in Louisiana ship them to us. So it would be great if you could sort of do the same. 
Thank you so much!

Lea, Newman, GA


Dear Sirs:

I bought your product "Louisiana Spice" when I was in New Orleans last year. My whole family loved it and we used it on almost everything - beef, pork, chicken, in soups and stews - it's great. The only problem is - I can't find it in our area. Do you have a list of stores that carry it in the St. Louis area?
Please write and let me know.

Thank You!

Sherry, Dittmer, MO


Dear Southern Seasonings,

Since making good roux takes time, I have been looking for the perfect roux in a bottle since moving away from my home state of Louisiana. After experimenting with several local brands here in Beaumont, I happened upon your roux at Albertson's Store.

This is by far the best roux. It is just like the one I make from scratch and just as good as my moms. I no longer make my roux from scratch and no longer have to try other brands.

I have told numerous people about your product and hope they enjoy using it as much as me.

Thanks again for selling your product here in Texas.

Shirley, Beaumont, TX


Howdy!

I was in the open market on the edge of the French Quarter a couple of months ago and purchased an eight-ounce bag of Popcorn Rice Dinner. I made some last night (I used bay scallops from my area) and it was love a first bite.

I am now lamenting the fact that I did not buy TEN bags. Please send whatever info I need to make this purchase and thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Sincerely,

Faye, Salem, MA


Dear Southern Seasonings:

Please send me a free recipe pamphlet and information about your other products.

I sure do love the Cajun red beans.

Since Food Lion Grocery Stores moved into our area, I am getting to try many new things not available before, including the "Bootsie's South Louisiana Cooking" products such as the Cajun Red Beans.

Thank you for the information requested.

Karen, Middle River, MI


Hi Folks,

I had my first taste of one of your seasoning products recently and it was great! It was your "Gumbo Dinner" ready-mix, which I added shrimp, fish, scallops & mussels to. The back side of your Gumbo Seasoning package offered a list of other products you offer as well as a recipe list. I would very much like to have both. I particularly like Cajun Style (spicy) seafood, soups, gumbo and dishes.

Thanks, 
Jerry, LaHabarra Heights, CA


I would very much like to have the free recipe pamphlet and information about other products offered on the back of the Bootsie's red beans bag.

You also invited us to say Hi. We were transplanted New Orleanians for four years and, not unexpectedly became very fond of the food there. My family especially enjoyed the red beans and rice. But when we moved to TN about twenty years ago I could never seem to make it with the good taste we had there. Recently I found Bootsie's red beans, cajun style (with the proper seasoning enclosed) here in a Kroger grocery. Now, my husband says that I have finally learned to make red beans! I am sure that he would be very appreciative of my attempts with some of your other products.

Thanks again.
Sincerely, 
Jean, Franklin, TN
