Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago our oldest daughter, who is the undisputed Sauce Queen, gave me a bottle of Bar-B-Que sauce she purchased at a Farmer’s Market. She said it is the best and knew we would love it. Well, she was right.

About a week later, I was at the Excelsior Farmer’s Market and right between Mackenthun’s and Ridgeroll Farms, was the M&B Homemade Seasonings and Sauce stand. I was so surprised and pleased. It also gave me an opportunity to meet Brenda Snell, one of the owners. It is always great to see a successful family business and they show their pride in their product.

M&B Homemade Seasonings and Sauces offers a complete line of products. Their sauces

M&B Homemade Sauce

include Maple, Original, Sweet Garlic, Northwoods Hickory, Zesty, Fireworks and the Grand Finale. They also offer spices with a 14 All-U-Need Seasoning and a Cowboy’s Seasoning.

All of their sauces and seasonings are made with the highest quality ingredients, with no added chemicals, but a lot of love in their product. I am pretty picky about this stuff because I don’t like buying sauces with high fructose corn syrup as their first ingredient. Most ketchup already has that as an ingredient, so why add even more!

I know they are at the Excelsior, Minnetonka, Delano and Maple Grove Farmer’s Markets, but you can contact them if you want to know of other locations or they might offer a mail purchase.

Contact information: M&B Snell, Corcoran, MNMBSnell2@comcast.net or call them at 763-221-6295.

I know they would love to hear from  you!

Take care,

Judy

Nothing like a summer trip to the Farmer’s Market or a basket from your CSA to get you cooking. I remembered a recipe in Prevention and personalized it a bit with all of the goodies in the fridge that I needed to use. Soup doesn’t need to be a cold weather dish. A lighter soup is refreshing because it isn’t heavy food to eat.

Fresh from the Market

Hi everyone,

From May through October, the Excelsior Farmer’s Market is open each Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.. I look forward to the opening day. For one thing – it means spring is here or at least coming soon. This year not quite so much here – we went from winter to summer. Anyway, early season is flowers, jams and jellies, fresh kettle corn, lots of plants and usually a meat or poultry vendor. Read the rest of this entry »
