EHL Ingredients has launched two new seasonal stuffing mixes to bring a new twist to traditional blends and spice up festive fare, Christmas dinners and accompaniments.
The blends include a sage, onion, apple and lemon stuffing and a warm winter spice with apricot and herb stuffing mix, which features a festive mixture of allspice, ginger, cinnamon, mace, nutmeg, apricot, thyme and parsley.
The leading importer, blender and packer of food ingredients from around the world also supplies mulled wine blends, dried fruit mixes and mixed seasonal spices.
Food manufacturers and processors looking to create quality Christmas dishes for supermarket shelves or foodservice outlets should start stocking up on these versatile new blends and popular ingredients and from EHL.
The stuffing mixes are the result over four months’ research and development and following rigorous trials, tests and tastings the new stuffing mixes are now available to the food manufacturing industry. The versatile mixes can be added to meat main course dishes, such as prepared turkey or beef joints, or used in dry format to create stuffing mixtures and balls.
EHL can supply these new blends under short lead times if required, can collaborate with brands and food manufacturers developing new products and can also offer advice on new and existing formulations.
EHL also offers a mulled wine and cider blend, which includes a balanced combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Mixed spices and dried fruits are also a winter winner as they have such a wide variety of applications. EHL’s premium ground mixed spice blend is the perfect product to use in a variety of Christmas-themed recipes while dried fruits and mixed peel are also key ingredients for baked goods such as Christmas puddings, stollen and fruit loaves as well as modern recipes, such as spiced orange and cranberry cake and mince pie cupcakes.
