BALTIMORE – Fuchs North America taps into the flavors of the South with its new Celebrating Soul Kit.
For its latest collection of seasonings, the company has created an authentic “southern meal” from main course to dessert. Inspired by traditional Southern recipes for protein, side dishes, and drinks, the collection includes Hoppin ‘John seasoning, Pot Likker seasoning, chicken brine, and sweet tea milkshake.
Featuring savory and spicy notes from ingredients like dried red and green pepper, onion, celery and jalapeño, Hoppin ‘John seasoning can be combined with rice, black-eyed peas and water to create a southern side dish. Pot Likker Seasoning combines bold garlic and onion notes to mimic Pot Likkor, a dish traditionally made from the savory liquid left over after simmering a pot of greens.
Chicken Brine seasoning puts plant extracts in the spotlight with its hot spices and vegetal notes. It was specially created for chicken but can be used with a wide variety of proteins, according to the company. Made with a natural tea aroma along with hints of lemon and monk fruit, the Sweet Tea Milkshake blend combines a creamy milkshake flavor with the classic Southern drink.
“With travel still limited during the pandemic, food is a way for consumers to explore new places,” said Shannon Cushen, director of marketing at Fuchs North America. “As a result, interest in regional cuisines and flavors has increased astronomically over the past two years. Southern cuisine has established itself among regional American cuisines. We wanted to bring authentic Southern comfort food to life with this innovative seasoning collection.
