Engage Organics Pure Spices Review



It all began three decades ago when founder of Engage Organics then Parsley Patch, Pat Gage in Sonoma county made the decision to reinvent her salt-free spice recipes that she came up with. 

Parsley Patch was so popular that the global spice manufacturer of McCormick & Co. bought the business in 1987.

Gage and her family have revived recipes especially "Garlicsaltless" which is one of Parsley Patch's favorites! 

Their brand new company of two years Engage Organics has been bottling spices that are organic, non GMO, gluten free and sodium free.

Engage Organics products can be found in numerous stores across the Bay Area as well as online.

Engage Organics recommends the variety of their nine blends of salt free seasonings, soon to be eleven and its health benefits.

Whether your sprinting a little seasoning on chicken or breads it makes them so flavorful and delicious! 

Engage organics is a business run by family with Pat's husband Jon,  son Jason Sherwood and nephew Jeremy Fitzpatrick.

In the year of 1980 Pat Gage then Pat Sherwood  was a single mom when she joined Elizabeth Bertani where they came up with the idea to create Parsley Patch both of them being Sonoma state university students they took out a loan and launched their business.

It wasn't until their products made their debut in 1981 at a food trade show where it peaked interest of everyone.

Then in 1984 Bertani, sold her half in the company to Jon Gage owner of a specialty foods brokerage that was in charge of marketing parsley patch. 

Pat Sherwood  and Jon Gage then married that same year .


In the year 1987 they sold their business to McCormick which today is a 125 year old company with over 10,000 employees.

Both Pat and Jon then happened upon other companies such as a soy beverage company geared toward women and a athletic club/spa in park city Utah.

Pat and Jon brought back their spice recipes to life  after their other original blends fell through the cracks.

It wasn't until early 2012 when the family as a team created engage organics. 

What makes Engage Organics seasonings better than other spices?

Engage Organics spices are made without any salt, MSG, and sugar

Pat herself sent me Engage Organics spices for review and here is what I received for this post!

Mexi mix:

A spicy  blend of Cumin, spices such as paprika, red pepper, garlic andonion.

I made a delicious taco salad complete with a colorful mix of peppers, tomatoes, carrots, avacado on a bed of lettuce with beef infused with mexi mix and drizzled on ranch dressing it was so good and flavorful! Made for a great anytime meal! 

Go-Grill-A-Rub:
This seasoning makes an amazing crust on the outside of grilled meats like chicken, steaks, and burgers providing great flavor with a kick! 

Blend of sesame seed, onion, paprika, garlic, cumin, parsley , basil, oregano, celery, lemon peel , red pepper, bay leaf, chipotle , habanero , mustard and stevia 

Tuscany- Mix:
Onion, oregano, basil, parsley, celery seed, garlic and spices 

Discover the impeccable flavors of Tuscany in all sorts of recipes ranging 
from dressings, potatoes, pasta even rice or meats!
The Tuscany seasoning adds extraordinary flavor to fresh baked breads and even chicken salad like this photo here with a little plain yogurt with some tangy cranberries, crunchy celery, and nutty walnuts with a sprig of lettuce piled high on flavorful artisan bread!

All Purpose:

This seasoning is perfect to add a bit of flavor to eggs, burgers, steak and more with sesame seeds, onion, paprika, garlic, lemon peel and red pepper

I decided to mix up my lunch and opted for sweet potato home fries cooked in refined coconut oil and spinach then topped it off with a runny egg, some crumbled bacon and a dash of seasoning! It was so delicious I loved the taste of the spice combined with the sweetness from the potatoes with the crispy bacon and the egg! Makes a really great breakfast too it's both filling, flavorful and delicious! 

Lemon Pepper:
Essence of lemon peel, sesame seeds, black pepper, paprika, poppy seed, 
garlic, onion, citric acid, red pepper and stevia

I got out a baking sheet layered it with aluminum foil then took out the chicken  put it on the sheet, grabbed my handy tongs and sprinkled on the lemon pepper seasoning on each side then popped it into the oven for a total of 25 minutes at 430 degrees. I'm so glad I made this because it's so easy to make plus it goes along  great with a nice colorful salad it's flavorful, it's succulent, it's spicy, it's zesty it's delicious! 


Garlicsaltless:
A mix of garlic, spices of oregano, basil, rosemary, paprika, red pepper, orange peel, onion, parsley and celery 
It's pungent aroma pleases the palette with it's delicate flavor of garlic and essence of orange peel.

Garlic has got to be one of my all time favorite seasonings it gives off great flavor and can be used in many dishes, dips, or snacks from mashed 
potatoes, chips even breads like these delicious garlic dinner rolls made with SimpleMills artisan bread mix and a dash of Garlicsaltless ! The rolls came out perfectly seasoned with the right amount of garlic taste without being 
overpowering!
