Farmers Market Oyster Crackers
These are the crackers we serve at the farmers market. Any of our flavors work great, but here we'll use Cy Salt.

  • 1 bag of oyster crackers
  • 1/4 c olive oil or walnut oil
  • 1 tbsp Cy Salt 

Preheat your oven to 350. Pour the oil and the spice into a bowl or a Ziplock bag. Mix the oil and the spice, add the crackers and toss to coat well. Pour evenly onto a cookie sheet and bake for five about minutes until they're dry.

Roxy Nuts

Full disclosure: these are snack-crack. You can also mix 1/2 Roxy Taco and 1/2 Iowa Nice Spice.

  • 1lb pecans
  • 1/4 c Roxy Nuts
  • 1/4 tbsp canola oil or butter
  • 2 tbsp Roxy Taco
  • A splash of maple syrup

Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes. OMGee.



Fresh peanuts, corn & chives with Alliyum


Cha-cha Chex Mix

This stuff's friggin' bananas: sweet, tangy, salty and a little bit spicy. I've eaten about 5 lbs of it this week. The sauce can be used for an Asian slaw or a marinade. Here's the (super easy) recipe:

4 cups Chex
2 cups pretzels
1 cup nuts
You can throw anything you like, really
4 tbsp butter (if you're making a dressing or a marinade, substitute a neutral oil)
4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
3 tbsp Cha-cha Lima Sugar
1/2 tbsp sesame oil if you want

Mix the crunchy stuff in a big bowl. Put the butter/oil, soy sauce, Cha-cha Lima, and sesame oil in a glass measuring cup and nuke on high 1 minute. Stir, pour it over the crunchy stuff, toss. To crisp it up, you can nuke it for 2 minutes, stir, nuke again for another 2 minutes, then spread it out and dry it on paper towels. Or you can bake it on cookie sheets at 300 for about 10 minutes, then air dry it.
