Zanzibar Brand Pork Seasoning Recipes

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by vagreys, Feb 2, 2012.

  1. These recipes allegedly come from a Mr. J.J. Costa, who was variously reported to be a spice merchant or a former employee of B. Heller & Co., who mixed the Zanzibar Brand seasonings on a regular basis. Regardless, the seasoning does closely match the ingredient lists on vintage Zanzibar Brand spice containers. Variations 2 and 3 are recommended spice substitutions from the original recipe. Zanzibar Brand seasonings were made by B. Heller & Co., Chicago, and were referenced in B. Heller & Co.'s 1922 book, Secrets of meat curing and sausage making : how to cure hams, shoulders, bacon, corned beef, etc., and how to make all kinds of sausage, etc., and comply with all pure food laws, in various recipes.
