Taste Test Tuesday: Todd’s Dirt

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by the kitchen today. As you can tell we had a blast at Metro Cooking DC this year. We learned a lot, saw a lot and met some really great vendors who we will continue to tell you about as we review their products. This is another vendor we met at Metro Cooking DC and we are addicted to their products.

Todd’s Dirt

 

After years of trying to recreate a seasoning blend that was made by a family friend, Todd was able to create something even better. Why is it called dirt? Well if you look at the bottle it resembles grass and dirt that you would find in your backyard. That’s just how big and noticeable the seasoning is. There is no MSG and it’s gluten-free. We had the opportunity to taste the dirt as a dip and on chicken. One bite and we knew this was a hit. Todd’s Dirt comes in three different blends:

Original: A mild savory seasoning made with 14 spices including, Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Kosher Salt, Pepper, Onion, Rosemary, Sage, Cilantro and other spices. Great on meats, vegetables, potatoes, and pasta. It even comes in a no-sodium blend called Low Down Dirt.

Bayou: This Creole/Cajun style seasoning has a very bold flavor made with 16 spices including, kosher salt, chipotle powder, sage, thyme, rosemary, chili powder and many more. If you are looking to spice things up a bit then this is your choice.

Crabby: A gourmet seafood seasoning blend made with 20 spices including, dry mustard, cayenne pepper, sage, onion, oregano, basil, ginger, cloves, white and black pepper, and many other spices. It’s Todd’s version of Chesapeake Bay seasoning. This seasoning was awarded the 2011 Silver Sofi award in the Flavor Enhancing category by the National Association of Specialty Food, which is the highest honor you can receive in the specialty food industry.

All of these spices were fantastic. You can use these seasonings to make dip with some sour cream. Crabby Dirt and some sour cream will kick up your shrimp cocktail dish. Sprinkle some of Todd’s dirt on some fresh popped popcorn, you’ll love it!

You can get them online at Todd’s Dirt or from some local grocery stores like Giant, Ingles Market, Whole Foods, and Central Market. Don’t see your local store on the list? Check the website to see if a store near you carries it, if not just order from the website. Hint: It is a great $5.00 investment!! They also have t-shirts, cookbooks, and gift packs if you are looking for a gift for the foodies in your life.

We hope you enjoyed today’s post. Thanks for spending time with us today. Feel free to leave a comments on the blog and let us know what you think.
