Seasoning Mixes


Grilling season is in full force.  Our garden is bursting with fresh veggies and we are living off grilled meats and vegetables.  In an effort to use less fats and oils, we rely on rubs to add more flavor to our chicken and steaks.  Simply mix the ingredients together then rub on to your meat.  For a more intense flavor, refrigerate after using the rub for several hours before grilling.
