    What is unique to Excalibur Seasonings manufacturing process?

    Their SQF Level 3 certification and the level of consistency, quality, and care that gets put into producing each and every product.

    What is the Excalibur Seasoning manufacturing process like?

    Everything that Excalibur Seasoning produces is subject to their SQF Level 3 certification. All inputs and outputs are lot coded, AND each batch and lot is compared to the previous batch and lot to check for consistency, taste, and visual accuracy so that is always exactly the same. Consistency, taste, and quality is of the utmost importance in their manufacturing.

    What is happening with Excalibur Seasoning’s latest expansion?

    One of the biggest reasons that Excalibur Seasoning decided to expand was to expand their storage capabilities.

    What is Excalibur Seasoning’s lead time on orders?

    7 days. Each order is produced and manufactured as they are placed. Seasonings don’t simply get pulled off of a shelf, but they are all made-to-order. This is changing slightly on some of their fastest selling items because of their latest expansion, and certain SKUs will have some pre-made seasonings held in stock so that some orders and seasonings can receive next day shipment.

    How many items will be added to Excalibur’s “Quick Ship” items?

    100+ SKUs will be available for next day shipment instead of the typical 7 business day lead time.

    When will the new facility be ready?

    By the end of October 2016, the new facility should be done, and the beginning of 2017 inventory should be built up and everything fully operational.

  • @peculiarb You can have an issue with pickled jalapenos and getting the meat to properly bind to them.
    You can blanch fruits and veggies before adding them to sausage and that will help. Some people add them straight in, but blanching will help the meat bind together with the jalapenos. Not a requirement though. If the jalapenos don’t bind perfectly into the meat, when you slice the summer sausage, the jalapenos may not fully stick to the meat and just fall off the slices. It won’t hurt the sausage, but it may not be 100% perfect. I would at least dry the jalapenos thoroughly, but blanching would provide the best results.

    Has anyone ever used pickled jalapeños in their summer sausage? I have a buddy who gave me a jar of picked jalapeños to add to his summer sausage I am going to make for him. Is this a bad idea? I’ve always used dried jalapeños in the past. Please advise! Thanks.

    @mikesmeats,

    I have only made about three batches of snack sticks so far but, I have found that adding an extra ounce of water ( per 5lb batch) over what is called for in the recipe, makes the meat “flow just a little easier when stuffing into casings.

    So far, the texture of the finished product has been great and I have had no problem with casings breaking etc. from the excess moisture.

    I recently had a 26 lb batch of summer sausage end up with brown spots here and there? Could this be from cure not evenly mixed ??? Or from encapsulated citric acid not fully mixed in??? I’m thinking eca wasn’t mixed in good enough because cure was put in initially with spices and binder and I mixed by hand till I got good protein extraction because it was very sticky ???0_1544920450978_26672209-28F6-4E2D-8CB7-BA2CE5A73BAF.jpeg
