I recently received a press kit from McCormick & Co. containing several full-size seasonings and extracts.
It's full of ingredients for spring cooking, tips for entertaining, recipes and tips for dyeing eggs.
I thought one of you might appreciate it, though, so I'm putting together a little contest. The winner will have a recipe featured on this blog, and possibly in my print column.
Caveat: The winner must be able to pick up the kit at 15 Main St., Champaign, or 137 N. Walnut St., Danville.
To enter the contest, you should leave a comment with your name, town of residence and the dish or goodie you'd make that includes at least two of the ingredients in the kit. Edit: Please enter by midnight Wednesday, March 13.
I'll feature the winner's recipe here. I'd prefer the recipe to either be an original or something you've tweaked to make your own. Features Editor Tony Mancuso has agreed to judge by choosing his favorite.
The ingredients are:
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground mustard
- Assorted food color and egg dye
- Pure lemon extract
- Pure vanilla extract
- Pure almond extract
I can't wait to see your ideas for what to do with these ingredients.
