Slice the butternut squash in half length wise. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle the olive oil lightly over the flesh and sprinkle evenly with salt. Flip the flesh side facing down and bake for about 45 minutes or until the flesh has softened. Remove from oven, flip the squash and allow cool for 10 minutes, or until cool enough to work with.
In large soup pot, heat the butter until melted and add the onions and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
Meanwhile, scoop the flesh out of the squash and set aside. Once the onions are done, stir in the ‘Maple Mustard Hamonizer’ spice blend and salt until well blended, then add the squash to the pot along with the stock and apple cider vinegar. Bring to a simmer and then puree using either an emulsion blender or regular blender, working in small batches.
Stir in the heavy cream and maple syrup and salt to taste.
The aroma of the spices are strong and you can smell it outside of the package itself without even opening the package. it's strong in the cumin and garlic and hot spices. the color of the spices are a very deep rich orange/red and I love that! you don't have to use a lot because it's or a high quality and strength otherwise you can very quickly end up with an over spiced menu. I like very much the fact that the package is resealable too.
I was looking for a quick mix to spice up my steak and came across this blend. Although it says lamb, the spices worked really well with the steak. I love that it's quick and painless. I don't have to figure out my own spice blend, I'm able to quickly reach for a high quality product that I know I can count on. I'm definitely going to restock when I run out!
Love love love, can't say enough good things about this blend. I tried the small pouch and just gave it a try and man was I surprised with how good it was. I am now a new fan of curated packs of spices, just tastes authentic. The only issue I had was it was pricier than transitional spices which I could see could drive some customers away.
The Egyptian Summer spice blend was definitely gourmet. I loved that I could taste the individual spices while it compliments one another altogether. I definitely struggle with knowing how to mix spices and this blend definitely helped make it more accessible. I added it to some chicken wings and it was so good! I would definitely buy it again or try another one of their spice blends.
The spices were amazing and were very fragrant. Definitely a gourmet blend that I would purchase again. I used one of the recipes on their website and followed the instructions and had the most flavourful chicken wings I've ever had in life. Definitely a time saver and money saver given this is already pre blended to maximize flavour.

Big Cove spice blends do not disappoint they are packed with flavour.

Great for meats, but also go perfect on veggies and potatoes -delicious!! Can't say enough great things behind this product, and Sarah & Dave are amazing!
Ghost taco makes everything taste delicious! I put it on chicken thighs and fry them with olive oil and use in a sandwich or on tuna and lightly sear it I use it on everything! It’s amazing like all the spices !
I received a free sample to try! I really liked it! It is very spicy but in a good way. My husband found it too hot but he is a wimp. I would love to try other flavours that you have available! I love to support small business and wish you lots of success! Definitely a recommendation from me and I would buy more!
