Kentucky got hit with a good amount of snow today so we decided to do a little advertising.

Motion sickness can occur in a car, airplane, ship or boat, train, camel, horse, amusement park ride and even a flight simulator.  According to surveys, car sickness affects 58 percent of children, incapacitating airsickness occurs in 29 percent of airline pilots, space-motion sickness occurs in 50 percent of space shuttle astronauts, and up to 100 percent of ship passengers suffer from motion sickness. With so many people challenged by this problem, wouldn’t it be great if there were a simple and delicious remedy?

For years, people have touted ginger roots’ ability to soothe an upset stomach and it has shown promising results in clinical trials. So if you or someone you know suffers from motion sickness, why not get a bottle of Sunrise Ginger Syrup, make up some ginger tea and sip it while you travel? Beat motion sickness with a delicious, refreshing drink!

Combine rice,water, and KFI Palava in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cover reduce heat and simmer for 12 minuets. Add blackeyed peas and simmer for 3 minuets or till rice is tender.

Have you ever heard that old expression that if your ears are burning someone’s talking about you? Well, our ears are heating up as more and more people discover our line of gourmet sauces. Here is a recent mention made by a condiment conniseur: Jerk Sauce Flavor Review.

“Is it alright to substitute ingredients?” We sometimes get this question from people we share our recipes with and, though substituting ingredients is always a matter of personal taste and preference, we highly recommend that our sauces be used with our recipes since we crafted them around our signature gourmet sauces.

Our Ginger Syrup, Jerk Sauce, Brown Sugar Syrup and Palava Sauce all have very unique flavor profiles and each recipe is designed to use those flavor profiles to their fullest. Other sauces and syrups don’t use the same ingredients, aren’t composed the same way and, therefore, don’t taste the same. So if you find some of our recipes interesting, please make sure to use the Kilimanjaro sauce or syrup mentioned in the recipe for maximum flavor.

Try our ginger cookie recipe for a delicious Holiday treat!

Ingredients:

2 eggs separated

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/8 teaspoon of salt

1/4 cup of natural sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons of Ginger Syrup

1/3 cup of all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest

confectioners sugar for dusting

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the egg whites until foamy. Slowly add the baking powder, salt, and sugar and continue beating on medium speed until stiff peaks form.

3. In another bowl, combine the egg yolks, vanilla, and lemon zest and beat with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Fold into the beaten egg whites just until combined. Sift the flour over the egg mixture and fold in until the batter is smooth and light. Drop 2 teaspoons of batter per cookie about 2″ apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then remove to racks to cool completely. The cookies will crisp upon cooling. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving. For best results, store covered.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays from Kilimanjaro Foods!
