Expert Tips

  • Liquid smoke is natural smoke flavor captured in water sprayed over burning mesquite or hickory wood. The smoky-flavored water is purified and seasoned with a bit of molasses and vinegar before it is bottled. Look for it near the condiments (mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauce) in the grocery store.
  • This snack mix tastes just as good at room temperature as it does warm; prepare the recipe in advance and let it cool completely. Seal the mix in an airtight container for up to three days.
  • Children notice and appreciate cute details: Use fish-shaped cheese crackers to make the snack mix fun.
