Organic Azo Red Pigment Color Testing Sheet

Compared to other pigments, there are various types of red azo pigment; it is more complicated than other color pigments.  Therefore, the manufacturing company needs to modify the color hue and particle size to each customer request, and the quantity of each manufacturing lot is not large.  Additionally, pigment strength and its resistance against light, water, organic solvent, chemical reagent, etc. also needs to be suitably modified to each customer’s request.  Lastly, red azo organic pigment needs to be carefully chosen for individual usage such as for paint, printing inks, toner and inkjet ink, and so on. Pigment needs to be finely tuned for high quality, especially for inkjet ink and toner.

Fuji Pigment has been meticulously making effort in this regard, and that is the major reason why they have been active in high-level research and manufacturing of red azo organic pigment over 80 years.  Fuji Pigment also has extensive knowledge in the manufacturing technology of color ink products such as ink for stationery, stamp and inkjet ink etc.

Bye, Felicia! Game Debuts; Say Hello to the Hottest New Party Game

Saying goodbye has never been so fun! A new party game from Big G Creative, Bye, Felicia! incorporates the pop culture phrase in a fun and fast-paced game of wild word associations. For ages 12 and up and available now at Target, the game requires players to mind meld with friends and family to guess what others are thinking.

Bye, Felicia! challenges great minds to think alike or at least guess how they think! Players have 30 seconds to list as many answers as they can before time runs out. The topics are random and range from “Foods You Eat with Ketchup” to “Bad Habits,” giving every round the potential for lots of laughs. When someone has an answer that doesn’t match another player, everyone says “Bye, Felicia!” good heartedly dismissing the person from that round of gameplay.

“Our game designer came up with a great concept that will make friends and family laugh out loud,” said Shannon Swindle, Director of Product Development, Big G Creative. “It’s all about learning how well you know the other players and guessing what they’ll think, with the added twist of a goodbye diss.”

The game’s objective is to match as many answers as possible with the other players to stay in the round the longest. Scoring tokens are collected each round and the person who collects the most tokens overall, wins the game!

For three to eight players, Bye, Felicia! takes twenty minutes to play and includes 200 cards, 40 scoring tokens, eight in/out chips, one pad of paper, eight pencils, one die, one sand timer, and instructions.

Bye, Felicia! The Game from Big G Creative hits Target stores at late June. Bye, Felicia! is a fun, fast-paced word association party game that can be played in just 20 minutes and is also fun to play over Zoom. Be prepared for lots of laughs as players try to guess what others are thinking.

Do great minds really think alike? If not, players are good heartedly dismissed by saying, “Bye, Felicia!”  The game is for kids ages 12+ to adults, making it great for families at home.

Available now at Target stores nationwide and Target.comBye, Felicia! The Game sells for $17.99 SRP. Published by Big G Creative, the game was invented by Peggy Brown.

Celebrate a Fire-Quacker Fourth with Duck on the Grill for Independence Day

Grills will soon be heating up across the country for the Fourth of July holiday. Make your backyard barbeque a standout this year with duck. If you’re burned out on the usual beef, pork or chicken, duck is a versatile and delicious alternative to other meats — and it’s just as easy to prepare.

Just in time for Independence Day, Maple Leaf Farms has created a duck grilling kit complete with ready-to-grill duck products, duck grilling guide with duck recipes and an exclusive “Fire Quacker” apron. Its farm-raised White Pekin duck products have a tender, mild flavor that adapts to a variety of flavor profiles. Plus, duck is surprisingly healthy and is leaner and has less saturated fat than other meats.


The Fire-Quacker Duck Grilling Kit features 8 skinless duck breasts for a delicious filet flavor, 4 lbs. of all natural ground duck meat that’s great for burgers and 32 fully cooked duckbrats, a classic sausage made healthier with duck and Maple Leaf Farms’ newest product offering.

Duck has amazing, mouthwatering flavor when cooked on the grill and will be sure to turn up the heat at your next backyard get-together. This recipe using all new duck brats is a great way to introduce duck to your holiday celebration.

Find more recipes for the grill and information about cooking with duck at mapleleaffarms.com.

Tucker Family Duck Brats with Onion Jam

Servings: 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 medium sweet onions, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rings
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4–6 Maple Leaf Farms Duck Brats, thawed
  • 2 cups beef stock or beer
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4–6 hoagie rolls, toasted

Directions:

1. In large pan, heat butter until foaming. On low heat add the onions, brown sugar, salt and pepper; stir and let onions caramelize for about 20 minutes. Add Dijon mustard and stir. Addduck brats to the pan and pour beef stock or beer over brats. Add apple cider vinegar and cook to medium heat; braise for 10 minutes. (Duck brats are already fully cooked).

2. Remove brats and let onion mixture simmer on medium while you finish the brats on a medium-high heat grill about 4–5 minutes on each side.

3. Serve brats in hoagie roll with onion jam on top.

Duck Wellington

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 8 to 10 oz. Maple Leaf Farms Duck Breast Meat or Boneless Duck Breast, skin removed
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 10 oz. Portobello Mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme, roughly chopped
  • 1-3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder (divided)
  • 6 slices Prosciutto
  • Spicy or Course Ground Mustard for brushing meat
  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry (cut in half and prepped to cover 2 Wellingtons)
  • Egg Wash (1 Egg Yolk and 1 tsp. Water)

Directions:

1. Season your duck breast meat with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large pan and quickly sear the meat all over, about 1 to 1-1/2 minutes each side. Remove and allow to cool.

2. Roughly chop the mushrooms and pulse chop in a food processor to form a coarse breadcrumb-like texture. Scrape the mixture into a hot, dry pan. Add thyme, 3/4 tsp. of your garlic powder and season with salt and pepper. Cook to allow the water to evaporate. When sufficiently dry (the mixture should be sticking together easily), set aside and cool.

3. Roll out a generous length of plastic wrap and lay out 3 slices of prosciutto, each one slightly overlapping each other. Spread half of the mushroom mixture evenly in a thin layer over the prosciutto. Repeat for the second Wellington.

4. Brush your duck breast meat all over with spicy mustard. Place 4-5 oz. of duck in the middle of each prepped prosciutto, and neatly roll it over the duck. Keeping a tight hold of the plastic wrap from the outside, roll it into a tight barrel shape and twist the ends to secure the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry thinly to a size which will cover your duck. Lightly egg wash the entire surface of one side of pastry and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Unwrap one of the meat logs from the plastic wrap and place the duck meat in the middle of dough. Fold dough over, stretching and pinching as needed, to seal completely. Remove any excess dough and fold any seams neatly to the underside. Place seam side down on a plate and egg wash over the top. Repeat the process for the second duck meat log. Chill again to let the pastry cool, approximately 20 minutes (or up to 24 hours).

6. When you’re ready to cook, egg wash again and use the back of a knife to lightly score the pastry. Do not cut through your pastry. Place bundles seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in a pre-heated 425 degree F oven for about 25 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving in thick slices.
