Julia's Southern Foods

Welcome to Julia's Southern Foods, LLC, a small family business where we manufacturer southern foods and snacks. We taste test all of our products to insure they have the same southern flavor that we grew up with. In addition where possible we seek out ingredients made in the USA, are non GMO, and contain no preservatives.  Actually we like to think of it as Julia's Southern Pantry, filled with many delicious Southern mixes, snacks, dips, rubs and sauces found in grandma's cupboard.   Not only do we want families to enjoy our products, but to embrace one of the oldest social activities:  cooking and eating together as a family.  We encourage you to involve your children or grandchildren in the preparation of these products.   To purchase our products, visit our store site  (shop.juliaspantry.com ) and open our virtual pantry stocked full of great tasting products and superior customer services. Our products are categorized under several brands:

Chef Piggy Tail Microwave Pork Rinds:  Our top selling product, Microwave Pork Rinds, offers one of the best forms of entertainment right in your own kitchen.  Kids of all ages love them! It might just surprise you that microwaveable pork rinds have crossed over to be considered as a healthier snack alternative. The facts are that microwavable pork rinds have a nutrition profile that make them a low carb, high protein snack with a higher fullness factor than most other snack foods.   Our spices add a wonderful complement to pork and we offer a range of spices all the way from plain to ghost pepper hot on our pork rind and pork skin snacks. One challenge that we face is that most folks think of pork rinds as the traditional fried pork rinds found in a convenience or grocery store. The unhealthy attributes of traditional pork rinds result from the fact that they are puffed in fat and are often include MSG in their seasoning. Once cooked a microwave pork rind has a shelf life of 3 months and with the distribution channel you often purchase traditional microwave pork rinds after 1/3 of their shelf life is gone. Microwaveable pork rinds have a shelf life of 9 months and require no refrigeration. Since you cook them in the microwave, you consume the product when it is fresh and at its peak of flavor. My favorite way to eat them is to cook the pain microwave pork rinds and add a few drops of my favorite hot sauce as I eat them.  Our microwave pork rinds contain no chemical preservatives nor do we use MSG in any of our seasoning.

Carolina Gold Nuggets Pork Rinds: This is a product brand we have reserved for introducing innovations in microwave pork rinds or pork skins products. Our latest product is our 100 calorie snack packs to assist people who want to limit their portions. In addition we offer our bulk pork rinds under this brand and offer 1, 2.5 and 5 pound packages. Based on results in our test kitchen, these are perfect for baking as well and only take a few minutes more than cooking in the microwave. We are the largest producer of consumer packaged microwave pork rinds in North Carolina.

Julia's Southern Mixes: Nothing is more southern than fried green tomatoes, hushpuppies, cornbread, biscuits, pancakes and fresh fruit cobbler. We offer a variety of complete mixes. What we mean by complete mixes is that we strive to offer a mix that only requires water or milk prior to cooking.  Our mixes contain no preservatives, we use non GMO grains, and we strive to utilize Made in America ingredients  whenever possible. An example of the quality of our ingredients are the sweet cream buttermilk powder and the real churned butter powder which is produced in Kentucky and a key ingredient in many of our mixes. Our products are scratch made and hand packaged.  While our production method is not the most efficient, we are committed to using displaced and unemployed adults, students, retirees and persons with disabilities to staff our production facility.  We strive to use individual strengths and skills to build a solid foundation and keep Americans working. 

Julia's Sassy Dips: Our dips are unique and definitely packed with flavors that you will not find anywhere else.  Customers describe them as being "addictive".  Sassy Dips are so much more than just a dip mix.  Sassy Dips can be used in soups, chili, meatloaf, hamburgers, as bread dips, vinegarettes, spreads, pimento cheese, homemade salsa - the sky is the limit.  Our dips are sweet and sassy, available in a variety of bold flavors: original (our #1 seller), roasted garlic, sweet onion, jalapeno, chipotle, habanero and ghost pepper. Our customers who have discovered the flexibility of these dips are always offering new recipes well beyond what we originally imagined. We share many of these recipes on a brochure we ship with the product or on our recipe page on this web site.  Sassy Dips definitely add a little "sass" to any event.

Julia's Southern Magnolia Gluten Free Mixes:
We decided to make sure our gluten free products we not confused with Julia's Southern Mixes so we launched this brand. Our gluten free mixes combine a rich southern taste in a variety of cobblers, pancakes, cookies for our gluten intolerant customers. We tested a number of gluten free products and decided to make our own flour blend to achieve the taste and texture we know our customers expected.  Our gluten free products make wonderful gifts for friends and family.

Wild Boar Rubs, Grilling Sauces and Caramelizing Glazes:
Seasonings and Sauces with an attitude - our rubs make "boaring" meats, exciting with a "bite" of bright, bold flavors. While they compliment pork, they add flavor to any meat, seafood or vegetable dish. For those customers who want to experience our Wild Boar bite, we offer Sassy Red Pepper, Smoky BBQ, Jalapeno, Chipotle, Habanero and Ghost Pepper (the hottest pepper we could find). Our featured recipe is to rub our product on a pork loin, cook on the rotisserie for 55 minutes at about 350F, cool and slice. You will notice that it will have a dark crust but don't be alarmed it is the rub caramelizing on the meat and adding a wonderful rich flavor.

One of the most innovative products is our Wild Boar line's Grilling Sauce and Glaze in a Bag. You just add any flavor of vinegar and make your own unique barbecue sauce or delicious marinade glaze that tenderizes and flavors your meat prior to cooking. It is an environmentally friendly product since we do not have to ship the vinegar and the glass bottle. It is flexible in that you can change the character of the sauce or marinade / glaze  by using different vinegars such as apple cider, balsamic, fig, pomegranate or red wine - the options are limited only by your culinary creativity.  In Eastern North Carolina we use this BBQ spice mix with apple cider vinegar  for an authentic "pig pick'n". The pork is cooked over night on hickory coals and then chopped or sliced. The final step is to liberally pour the eastern North Carolina BBQ sauce over the chopped pork and then make a delicious pulled pork BBQ sandwich topped with coleslaw.
