Major Grey's Chutney, a flavorful medley of tropical fruits like mango, tamarind and lime, is a delicious appetizer when poured over cream cheese or served as a marinade for pork or chicken. Originally derived from Indian cuisine, the name 'chutney' comes from the word "chatnu," meaning "to taste."  Use it to create exotic Peanut Butter Jalapeno Poppers.

Rich and zesty Crosse & Blackwell Seafood Sauces are a simple way to make a big impression at the snack table. Made with choice ingredients like tamarinds, ripe tomatoes and pure ground horseradish, Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Shrimp Sauce are the ideal complement to succulent fresh seafood like shrimp, crab, lobster and oysters.  They can also be used to make family-friendly Fiesta Shrimp Appetizer.  

Adding vibrant flavor and gourmet flair to the simplest dishes is easy with Crosse & Blackwell Relishes, Capers and Cocktail Onions. These little jars pack a punch of texture, taste and flavor that will add a special touch to game day snacks and appetizers.

With Crosse & Blackwell products on hand, there's no reason why armchair athletes can't enjoy an exceptional food fest on every game day – no matter which team wins.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
