#1583085 Gemini Crow Labels: The Last Labels

Posted by salsalady on Yesterday, 06:25 PM

yea, I thought the other label was posted as reference for the color.  I think that works.  Didn't think it was part of this discussion, but I couldn't resist.  Text in the Limon (add the tilde thingy~~~) ...if going for a retro thing...the text "...a whole lot of.." seems out of character.

loose the + after SHAKE WELL

 

I would keep the period at the end of the list.  It has colon and commas.  Something at the end finishes it.  (jmho)

 

I'm still not digging the text/romance.  And reading the red label for the other sauce, not liking that wording either.

My daddy used to say "SOULSHINE! It's better than sunshine. It's better than moonshine.  And It's damn sure better than rain."  SOULSHINE is a hearty mild verde sauce to brighten up your eggs, chicken, seafood and rice-based meals.

I like the antique-y looking crackle lines.

 

Maybe I missed the answer before, but is the face image legal to use?  It is from the movie The Crow?

If people waited for No Rain to do things in the Northwest, nothing would ever get done! 

 

Yea, it rained most of the weekend.  Tarps and canopies to the rescue! 

 

It was great to see everyone again.  lots of fun conversations.  Not too many shenanigans because none of the new people showed up.  (woosies~) 

Chili, brats, some African Peanut Chicken soup that was delicious!, spicy cheese ball, pickles, dilly beans, banana pudding dessert, lots of munchies....bloody marys :cheers:, pancakes, eggs, sausage...some unintentionally tingly (fermented OOPS!) blueberry syrup, I know I'm forgetting stuff...

 

I only took about 4 pictures, not even sure if that's worth posting.  Gotta find the camera first~

 

 

 

Next year we are going back to the first weekend after Labor Day.  We've always had good weather, just might have a burn ban on. but I'd rather deal with that than the rain. 

 

Start Planning now, folks!n  Reservations open in December.  The yurts were very comfortable.

That tile is actually called basket weave lol! Everyone loves the backsplash.
 
Not sure yet on the sauces. Wide is better than deep so you can find stuff easily so maybe far left cab middle/top shelves.


That's it??? I figured it would be 'the refrigerator wall' or 'the stove wall'.
:lol:.


#1582885 New hot sauce startup considerations

Posted by salsalady on 19 September 2018 - 04:44 PM

Again, not trying to be critical of SnF or SL who have way more knowledge in this space than I do, but sharing my business experience that is in an admittedly completely different field.


SnF and I both recommend anonymous feedback for exactly the reasons you listed. Not sure why that got missed in this post, we and others have suggested that for years. Thanks for pointing out the input from strangers as it really is important to honest feedback.

Lucky dog hot sauce used to take bottles of sauce to picnics, drop em on the table and then hang around and listen.

Congrats! Looks great. Whens the TD? Lol

  

Yeah.... What he said. ^^^^

Very cool remodel. And how satisfying was it to swing that sledgehammer? We let Evan go at it on our horrid old bathroom. He had a ball!

I know. They looked like asterisks on my stoopitphoane.


Might be something to consider. But then again....Why are there quote marks?

Anyone interested in selling hot sauce must do it legit. There are no shortcuts. Based on where the sauce is to be sold, there may be some lesser regulations, but all sauces and sauce processors must be licensed, insured, reviewed...m


No short cuts. Review the link smoke fire posted. It has all the info to get persons going in the right direction.

#1581565 Making a Sauce with Nuts

Posted by salsalady on 12 September 2018 - 05:06 PM

Unless the rest of the flavors in the sauce are pretty light, I don't think you would get any flavor from nuts in a cheese cloth.  There are some commercially available pastes and flavor extracts that could be utilized.  Tahini comes in plain ground and toasted ground.  Might be able to find some toasted pistachio paste.

 

Be aware when labeling that some people are extremely allergic to nuts and anything containing nuts should be very clearly labeled.

 

Follow all the basics of Making Hot Sauce 101. 

 Get a good pH, bottle properly but DO NOT SELL it unless you are properly licensed, inspected, approved, etc.... Things containing nuts are a critical factor (like dairy) and there may be additional requirements for the processing other than making a typical hot sauce.

 

Good luck and have fun!
