Below are three photos to give you an idea of how much product you will receive in each size package. We filled up each size bag with marbles and placed them next to a quarter to provide a clear representation. There are two different photos, one for standard spices/seasonings and one for herbs. Since many herbs are so leafy the same weight will fill up a much larger bag. This is why some of the herb prices seem a lot higher than the spice prices, but you are actually receiving more product.
The third image is of our 1 cup Bottle with Sifter next to a popular national brand found in most grocery stores. You can see that our bottle holds close to 2.5 times more product than the national brand bottle. Plus, ours often costs less! Please be aware some other online retailers only offer 1/2 cup(4 fluid ounces) bottles. We choose to offer double the size 1 cup (8 fluid ounces) bottles to give you the biggest bang for your buck!
We hope you can see from these images that regardless of which size you order, you are getting a lot of product and a very good value compared to the supermarket.
Kentucky Bourbon Balls
Rich Kentucky Bourbon flavors these delicate candies, making them perfect for your New Year’s party, or any other fun gathering! Let the Pecans steep in the Bourbon for several hours before using them to top the candies. This helps develop the flavors. Enjoy!
Yield: 4 dozen balls
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Prep Time: 4 Hours
- 1/2 cup
butter, room temp
- 1 cup
- 2 pounds
- 1 teaspoon
- 2 bags
dark chocolate chips
- 1/3 bar
paraffin wax, available in the home canning department
Pour about 48 pecan halves in to a bowl of bourbon. Let the butter come to room temp by leaving it on the counter for about an hour before you start. Do not microwave it to warm it.
Add the butter to a stand mixer or large bowl. Cream together with the bourbon until smooth, then add the vanilla. Slowly add the confectioners sugar until entirely incorporated.
Form into heaping Tablespoon-size balls, smoothing them in your hands. You may have to cool your hands down by placing them in chilled water before or during the rolling. Place on a wax-paper covered cookie sheet. Don’t worry about the balls touching.
Add the balls in to the freezer while you melt the dark chocolate.
Start a double boiler to melt the dark chocolate. An easy way to do this at home, is to take a medium-size saucepan and fill it about half-full with water. Bring to a low boil, and cover the saucepan with a glass heat-safe bowl.
Add the dark chocolate and the paraffin wax to the bowl. Stir carefully as it starts to melt. It will probably take 20-30 minutes before it is completely melted and smooth.
Remove the balls from the freezer. Drop them one-by-one into the melted dark chocolate. Use a fork to turn them and make sure they are completely covered. Lift them out of the chocolate and place on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet, making sure they don’t touch. Top each ball with a bourbon-steeped pecan half. Work quickly so the balls don’t melt in the chocolate. Continue with the rest of the candies.
Place the dipped balls back in the freezer to completely harden the chocolate before storing. Serve and enjoy! Carefully arrange the balls on a platter, the pecan toppers will come off if you juggle them around.
Store in an airtight container at room temp for up to 1 month. This recipe does not freeze well.
