(Family Features) - Springtime heralds "new" - the weather, style of clothing, what's on the menu. True culinary innovation doesn't happen often. But when it does it's cause for celebration. Delight family and friends with a springtime holiday menu full of traditional favorites prepared with a distinctly modern flavor.
It took good old American ingenuity to figure out a way to get a tasty marinade inside the meat where it immediately adds succulence and enhances flavors. This innovation of delivering big flavors quickly takes no shortcuts on quality: These full flavored marinades are injected directly into the meat, instead of sitting on the surface.
Injectable marinades make it easy to prepare a winning main course in minutes - no overnight soaking, no added fat and no waste - with flavors that really permeate the meat. A centerpiece entrée ham with a honey praline injected marinade makes a bold statement on your dinner table. And when you round out the menu with other classic family favorites - a sweet potato and pecan casserole that's a "must-serve" with ham, and crowd-pleasing bread pudding with rum sauce - your culinary reputation will be secure.
Kitchen innovation opens the door to new flavors. Check out the wide variety of mouthwatering dishes with injectable marinades made possible by injecting flavor at www.CajunInjector.com. Delicious foods full of traditional flavors are available just a click away at www.BruceFoods.com/bfcstore.
Tips for Tasty Ham
- Select a lean ham with no visible marbling, and well trimmed of fat around the edges.
- If frozen, allow ham to thaw slowly in refrigerator for best quality.
- Avoid cross-contamination by pouring marinade into separate container before injecting into meat.
- Turn ham without sharp tools that may pierce the ham, allowing delicious juices to escape.
Going Green: Smart Moves
What's good for the environment is good for consumers and good for the bottom line as well. Cutting-edge production practices are used by Bruce Foods in their sweet potato canning lines to recapture gas by-products, recycling their energy for manufacturing. This procedure is one among many that not only conserves our precious natural resources for future generations, but also reduces processing costs - resulting in lower consumer prices.
