Hot Rub Candy?!
Oh, my it has been a while. In our defense, be it known that we have been busy indeed! I see that the last time we talked we were discussing the merits of grass fed (and home raised) beef. Ribsteak has come and gone, and we find our freezers full yet again of that best of all beeves; grass fed and home raised (though not at OUR home this time). We’re spoiled now!
In the time since we last were together, we have seen Miners Mix become popular indeed on Amazon here in the US, AND we have “crossed the pond” and are now available with Amazon UK! Along with all of our old friends, you’ll now find us also available at Hudson Daniel, and featured in a couple of GREAT gifts at Mancrates.
We have also introduced a brand new rub. Our newest effort is FANTASTIC on Prime Rib, roasts of any kind – including beef, pork, lamb, and all types of wild game. We want to thank our friends Patrons of the Pit and Auntie Doni for agreeing to be our guinea pigs during development!! You’ll find it available at MinersMix.com, and on Amazon!
Also, this spring, Miners Mix will be on the road again: you can find us on the Madera Wine Trail at one of our favorite spots: The San Joaquin Wine Company on February 10 and 11, at the Fresno Home and Garden Show on March 2 – 4, and at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas on May 8 – 10. We’re not sure where we’ll be in April, but keep an eye on our Twitter feed for the latest!
It’s good indeed to be back here on the ‘Ol Miner’s Meanderins’! We want to leave you with somethin’ special for Valentine’s Day. Here’s a recipe for candy made with… you guessed it: one of our Miners Mix rubs!
Blend by hand:
8 oz creamed cheese, 3 cups melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 tsp Miners mix Hotbanero rub and 1 tbs coconut oil. Allow to set for 5 – 10 minutes, and then roll into 1/2 inch balls. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.
Don’t worry about the Hotbanero, most of the heat is absorbed by the chocolate! Serve these to your Honey, and he/she will be amazed! Until next time, dine well!
