Delicious Southern Eating with Glory Foods and Giveaway

by Nicole on May 14, 2013

Ever since I moved to Florida 10 years ago I have always bought Glory Foods canned vegetables, especially the green beans and mixed greens.  I love the deep flavors and especially love the Sensibly Seasoned line that features less salt (but not less flavor!)!

Using the delicious dishes served in his Columbus, Ohio soul food restaurant as inspiration, William F. “Bill” Williams, along with three partners, Dan Charna, Iris Cooper and Garth Henley, launched Glory Foods in 1989. The vision for this food company, steeped in generations of Southern-style recipes and flavors, came to the table during a friendly discussion about holiday dinner preparation. Williams mentioned to friends the number of hours and care that went into cooking a savory pot of collard greens and how no African-American family celebration is complete without them. How great it would be to have truly authentic canned collard greens, Williams thought. After extensive research, Williams and his partners realized that pre-seasoned, canned collard greens were not available anywhere. So they set out to launch Glory Foods. The company has since become synonymous with quality, convenience and flavorful Southern-style vegetables.

Glory Foods officially launched its line of pre-seasoned canned vegetables in 1992 with Columbus, Ohio as its test market. Our initial product line of 17 items focused on greens, peas and beans. Over the past several years, Glory has been able to expand its line to offer 85 products, including seasoned canned greens, bagged fresh greens and other vegetables, the Sensibly Seasoned low sodium product line, Seasoned Cooking Bases and a line of hot sauces. Glory Foods is now available at retailers nationwide.

Yummy! I got to try a variety of the Glory Foods products and found some new ones that I really like! The hot sauces were full of flavor and heat and a great addition to so many different foods.  I also loved the country cabbage! I love cabbage and this tasted just delicious as a side dish.  Noah loved the honey carrots and the sweet potato casserole the best.  Jamie thought the seasoned cooking bases were a great product and has been consistently using them at work and at home when he cooks our meals!

Our hands down favorite was the fried apples (yum!) and I was so happy to try out this yummy recipe from the chefs at Glory Foods!
