In Topic: Oyster and giblet dressing OH YEAH!!

I love oyster dressing but never made it myself. The best thing about it is there's so many ways to make it using all types of meats. smoked meats and some are more wet than others. I like oysters so I want to taste them in the dressing. 

 

I need to clear up a Louisiana dressing, it's not like a Yankee/ up North/you foreigners dressing which is mostly a bread filling like Stovetop dressing. JJ! :lol:  We make rice dressing which is meat and rice, cornbread or eggplant so it's can also be a meal. I also mix an egg into the dressing and make a patty dredged in flour and fried, those are awesome with a good gravy over the top. My favorite is an eggplant dressing patty covered with crawfish etoufee. 

 

I had to go look up some recipes and I see this in the near future.

Here's a wet dressing that I need to cook, I say wet because it will have a moist texture.

 

I also want to cook one of these but use local smoked sausage instead of breakfast sausage, This would be a dry dressing to me.

I wouldn't base your pricing on what bonnie charges. You'll go broke. Sell things that bonnie doesn't offer at the big box stores and you can charge a premium.

It might be hard to believe but Bonnie's is everywhere here and they are the highest priced at $3.50 a 6 pak and bigger single plants. There's 2 nurseries that sell to a few feed stores around here and they are priced at $1.75 a 6 pak.

 

For individual sales and markets I'll sell for a higher price. This will be a learning/test year for plants, if I sell out then I'll go bigger next year but I'll at least get a better handle on what people want.

 

Thanks for all the replies, I'll try a few of those peppers for sure.

Got my order in today.  He is using those plastic bubble wrap envelopes.  I forget the name, TVP or something like that.  Very professional packaging.  On the inside, a hand written thank you note.  Shipping was fast and professional.

I got mine Saturday and it has 23 seeds inside so he not being cheap. He using bubble mailers. I'm sure he put extra stickers in there too, right?

I've been pricing 6 and 4 paks and some 2.5x2.5 singles then move them up to bigger pots if they don't sell and mark up the price. I plan on selling both tomatoes and peppers maybe even cukes too. Pricing depends on what bonnies will charge this year, I'll beat their price on somethings and be close on others depending on seed cost. I'm still working on that.
