The deep, resonant fruit from chile peppers and insistent sparks of celery define the flavor of our salt-free Flippin’ the Bird seasoning blend. This blend brings comforting warmth with paprika and pasilla peppers, touched with the hint of ancho’s rich chocolate. Sage and marjoram carry vibrant nostalgia with them, evoking images of idyllic dinners and plenty of home cooking. Sweet hits of honey and the lilting taste of lemon add buoyancy to this blend, and astringent celery gives it a perky finish. Our Flippin’ the Bird seasoning is blended in small batches in our facility, so we can provide our customers with the freshest product possible.

Seasoning blends are a common sight in a modern kitchen, but they are a relatively recent addition to a Western kitchen. The ancients certainly knew to layer pepper and sage over their chicken, but it wasn’t until the medieval period that seasoning blends turned into formalized, standardized flavors, specifically for kitchen use and not for medicinal purposes, with individual recipes. Various pepper-based powders, like “powder deuce” (sweet powder) and “powder fort” (strong powder) were in use in medieval France and England. In 1777 a recipe for “kitchen pepper”, a blend of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper, was formalized into the book A Lady’s Assistant by Charlotte Mason, who called this blend “a great addition to all brown sauces.”


Tips From Our Kitchen


Salt-free Flippin’ the Bird seasoning is good for all sorts of chicken. Some of our customers prefer to use it on roasts, some on grilled or fried chicken. One of our customers even uses it as a base for brining. It’s a low-heat blend so it’s family friendly; bake some chicken wings that the kids and the grandparents can enjoy! Use as a dry rub on pork tenderloin. This is great on roasted vegetables—try it on sweet root vegetables, like carrots or parsnips, or make a celery root gratin. Mix with tahini sauce and lemon for a dip for vegetables, or thin that out and enjoy a vibrant, rich salad dressing.

We recommend using 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of chicken. You can always add more if you want more flavor.

This is blended with paprika, onion, lemon, honey, sage, marjoram, ancho, black pepper, pasilla, celery, garlic, and cumin.

A Great Seasoning For Your Holiday Turkey We used this on our Thanksgiving turkey and it was AWESOME! Use a bag to cook it and season the bird a day or two ahead. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and it will taste like nothing you have had before.
