Hello and welcome to a brand new feature on the Seeds blog that we are very excited about: Comox Valley Eats! Here at Seeds we are proud to stock and support many amazing Comox Valley food producers – talented and hard-working folks who grow, raise and toil for our stomachs’ delight. And we figured, since these people know their product better than anyone else, they might have some killer recipes up their sleeve that showcase said product. So, we reached out to our local food community, the response has been fantastic, and we are very happy to share these delicious recipes with you here. May you never have a dull dinner again!

First up is one of two fabulous recipes sent to us by the lovely Dan and Maggie at DeeKayTee Ranch. Bon Appetit!


Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken Wings by DeeKayTee Ranch

¾ cup granulated sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup soy sauce

¾ cup water

¼ cup pineapple juice

¼ cup vegetable oil

4lbs DeeKayTee chicken wings (24)

In a very large bowl mix all the ingredients except the chicken wings. Add the chicken, toss gently to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to marinade.

Remove chicken from marinade and place in a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Add about 1 cup of the marinade and discard the rest.

Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or until the juice of the chicken is clear when the thickest part is cut to the bone.
