Who are we?
Blue Wren Spice & Condiment, LLC is a young but growing manufacturer, wholesaler and online retailer of grilling rubs, with exciting plans for spice mixes, sauces, condiments and more! Blue Wren was founded by R. David Jones as result of a life-long passion for culinary experimentation. Always loved to cook, but had a particular knack for "spice alchemy" and an ongoing desire to test, taste, tweak and repeat in the kitchen, over flame or shrouded in smoke. sometimes results are interesting or unique, and occasionally of back-to-the-drawing-board quality, but with a bit of imagination, experimentation and mad-scientisting (and sometimes luck) the most AMAZING and DELICIOUS things appear. This is what Blue Wren wants to pass on: a desire to experiment, to grow and to take your palate to places it could never go in "point-a-to-b" fashion. So the journey is at least as important as the destination in most cases! Don't forget to bring family and friends along. The more the merrier! In any event, you'll need test subjects for all the thumbs up, right???
In case you haven't guessed, I'm R. David Jones and I'm the one coming up with this stuff. I referenced myself in third person and it Feels weird...but not as weird as saying "I" or "Me" all the time. That's me in the picture. The lady on the left would be the far better half of the equation, kim. She puts up with a lot and for that I am eternally grateful!
Our website, , is currently under construction. When online, it will provide information on all of the upcoming product and product line plans we have in store. It certainly is a pleasure to meet you. Please check in often! Our test kitchen is hard at work on additional products to make your indoor and outdoor culinary experiences truly memorable!
Red Head Rub and All-Purpose Seasoning
is the first offering in a lineup of products for your grilling and kitchen adventures. This particular blend has evolved over time; a result of years of blending, re-blending, testing, re-testing, etc. Red Head lends a touch of the exotic as you experiment with various foods and techniques, notice how certain flavors surface to compliment a dish's ingredients - NOT overwhelm them. Equally at home on the grill or in the kitchen, Red Head is perfect outdoors and in, all year round! AVAILABLE
Red Head Smokin' Cajun Rub and Seasoning
is our first new product based on popular demand. Our goal was to produce a perfect tradition-based cajun spice blend and if feedback is any indication, we have succeeded beyond our wildest expectations. We describe this blend as "mild-ish" because what would a cajun spice blend be without at least a hint of heat? Use it on chicken, fish, crawfish and shrimp; and in jambalaya and gumbo. It also makes the most AMAZING blackening seasoning. We even have reports that Red Head Smokin' Cajun is phenomenal sprinkled on freshly popped popcorn! AVAILABLE
Red Head Flaming Cajun Rub and Seasoning
While we were conducting taste tests for a new Cajun blend a few hard-core taste testers said "Tastes great, more heat!" We added more heat and they said "Tastes great, more heat!" SOOOO we took our original cajun blend recipe and said "PUNCH IT!" We got thumbs up on the heat factor and with 4 times the cayenne, this stuff has a bit of a sting. Use it just like you would our "Mild-Ish" blend when you want to turn the heat up several degrees! Try mixing with sour cream; it's great on baked potatoes and makes a dang good wing dip. AVAILABLE
