The Soul Food Experts: When it Comes to Soul Food, Seasoning is Everything

I have examined literally hundreds of soul food recipes (both in print and online) over the course of my life.  And, without exception, they all should be thrown out for one reason, which is they all make very poor seasoning recommendations.  In fact, if I didn’t know better, I would think that soul food doesn’t taste very good, based on the seasoning recommendations that I have seen in some of these so-called  “soul food recipes”.   Of course, I know that this is not the case, which is why I am compelled to maintain this blog, and set the record straight--- once and for all.  For those of you who do not know, there is one thing that must be made clear right here and now.  When it comes to soul food, seasoning isn’t the only thing, it’s everything.  

As the President and CEO of a company that sells a premium all-purpose soul food seasoning, I am not in a position to tell you exactly what a good soul food seasoning mixture is.  I can only show you (if you purchase our product) what it's supposed to taste like.  I am, however,  able to tell you what it is not, and I will endeavor to do so here. 

Good soul food seasoning is not salt and pepper, nor is it a seasoned salt.  Good soul food seasoning is made up of several spice ingredients (only one of which I will identify here) that are typically not found in seasoned salts alone.

It is for this reason that Annabelle’s Soul Food Seasoning is better than all the rest.  Annabelle’s Soul Food Seasoning is the only all-purpose seasoning product currently on the market that creates the "authentic" soul food flavor in all foods, without the need to add any other seasoning ingredients.   It is the only such product, manufactured in the U.S., using the highest quality spice ingredients. Moreover, it is the only such product manufactured in conformity with American Institute of Baking’s (AIB) food safety guidelines and consolidated standards, Good Manufacturing Practices, and HACCP programs.   What that means, simply stated, is that we stand by the ingredients that are in our bottles.  

But there is another reason why Annabelle’s is the best.  It is the only premium soul food seasoning product that contains cayenne pepper (instead of paprika) as a base ingredient.  Cayenne pepper is one of the best foods known to men and women as it increases your metabolism, helps to reduce and regulate your blood pressure, and also helps to rid the body of LDL (or bad) cholesterol and triglycerides. Thus, Annabelle’s Soul Food Seasoning promotes good health, in addition to delivering the flavor.  We don’t know what those other so-called “soul food” seasonings do.   We know what they don’t do, and that is taste good.
So, to those of you out there who really want to get the seasoning right, there really is only one choice, and that is Annabelle’s Soul Food Seasoning.  Because when it comes to soul food, seasoning isn’t the only thing… it’s everything.
