King’s Pepper is a rich aromatic blend of exotic herbs and fiery spices that's based on a centuries old West African recipe.  There's no salt, peanut or msg in it and it's gluten free.  Use it to add a delicious spiciness to veggies, meat, poultry and seafood.  From your first meal of the day to the last, you'll find yourself reaching for it often.

Planning Your Juneteenth Menu?

Be sure your have plenty of King’s Pepper on hand to add that rich, bold  spicy flavor you'll only find in our recipe. 


People often ask how we celebrate  Juneteenth and I say in our hearts and on our plates!  Barbequed ribs, chicken, links, tamales and all the fix n's plus potato salad, black eyed peas, mac and cheese and more.  Save your fork! Cause this would be followed by luscious layer cakes, pies on parade with plenty of red soda water and sweet tea.


We give thanks for those who were freed from enslavement in Texas on  June 19, 1865 - including my great-great-grandparents, their children and kin.  And we celebrate by preparing food in abundance, often using recipes handed down for generations.

King’s Pepper can be used to season your eggs or veggie frittata at breakfast, to perk up your entrees at lunch, or to add that special kick to your main course at dinner.   


*    Dry rub or marinade     Use King’s Pepper in your marinade or dry rub and let the flavor soak into your meat, poultry or seafood before smoking, or roasting in the oven or sizzling on the grill. Don’t forget the fresh, juicy corn on the cob! You'll love it hot off the grill slathered with butter and sprinkled lightly with King’s Pepper.  


*      Veggies      King’s Pepper may serve as that “secret” ingredient that you add to your favorite stir fry.  Shake a little into your greens, beans and grains for a little African umami.

*      Soups and stews     King’s Pepper goes great with tomato sauce-based dishes like soups and stews.  Nothing is better than a bowl of hot soup in the winter, or when you have a head cold.  Need chicken soup for your soul? Kick it up with a shake or two of King's Pepper and you'll feel better in no time.

Garlic Butter   Shake just a little King’s Pepper into the customary butter, garlic and salt melange when you prepare your next seafood dish in your Instant Pot  or to the batter when you fry tender crispy chicken in your Air fryer. 


*  Single-Pot Meals   If you love the convenience of a slow cooked meal King’s Pepper should be one of the essential seasonings on your shelf.  Shaking a little into those slow cooker recipes will make them taste and smell delicious.

*    Classic seafood    King’s Pepper and seafood are a match made in gastronomical heaven.  Baked, fried or sauteed, you'll love the way it brings out the best flavor in your seafood selection.
