Food.Fun.Stuff: Locked Up Spice & The Giveaway is Over

[ 0 ] August 11, 2009 |

The Randomness:

>Jailhouse rock- The minimum -security Hillsborough County Jail (*Tampa, Florida) inmates are cooking up some spicy sauces while pulling their time. Apparently, they are cooking up some pretty spicy stuff called “Jailhouse Fire Hot Sauce” which comes in Original, Smoke or No Escape, which are made from jail grown peppers. The profits are used to maintain a greenhouse and purchase supplies. Interesting way to utilize that time…

>Done & Done- The JKGF Old Bay Bloody Mary contests is over and we are reviewing all the wonderful recipes that were submitted. Thank you for all who participated! We love Old Bay Spice, 70 years and running.
