All of the peppers used in our spice blends are harvested fresh from our fields in the Fall and smoked in our smokers on the farm. After smoking they are dried and ground and packaged immediately in order to give you the freshest product possible. There are no preservatives, salts or additives in the blends. We suggest you add salt to your finished product to bring out the best flavor, but we have omitted it for those who are sensitive.
