Countries in Europe wanted to expand their world influences. How did they do that? They boarded ships and sailed west. Spain was one of the first countries to explore the New World and first to settle in America. America was named after Amerigo Vespucci. Some of the first colonies England established in America were in Jamestown Virginia in 1607, and then the Pilgrims arrived in Plymouth Massachusetts in 1620. As these settlements grew, people started exploring the area and set up their own colonies. These people became the colonists, during this time of expansion that we call the Colonial Times. But usually when people mention the Colonials or Colonial Times, they are referring to the 13 original American Colonies during the time of the Revolutionary War. By 1770, over 2 million people lived in Britain's 13 American Colonies.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Do you offer any spice rubs that all the ingredients in the rub would be native to the area that the 13 colonies encompassed ?
Good morning. We do not have any blends with only the 13 colony grown ingredients. Many of our spice blends do have colonial seasonings like basil, dill, lavender, parlsey, rosemary, sage, mints, and thyme, but nothing that includes just those ingredients. Our "Queen's Spice" has sugar, lavender, spearmint, and lemon powder. Lemons where introduced into Florida in the 16th century I believe. Sugar was not grown in the colonials, but came from Caribbean islands. Thank you for the question.
