Cumin$8.50 – $24.30
Native to the Mediterranean and South Asia, Cumin is also a signature flavor for Central American and European cuisines. As a symbol of love and fidelity during the Middle Ages, wedding guests carried Cumin in their pockets, and wives of soldiers added it to baked bread for their husbands. Our Cumin is hand harvested, and has a high percentage of essential oils, delivering more powerful aromatics, and a slightly astringent, citrusy quality.
Marjoram$7.25 – $19.60
Marjoram is known to represent joy. In ancient Greece and Rome, wreaths of marjoram crowned newly married couples to bring them love, honor and happiness. In the Middle Ages, it was carried at weddings and displayed in bouquets.
Marjoram, cousin to Oregano, is similar in flavor but more delicate. The dried leaves are light to the touch and mild in taste. Uses: omelets & cheese dishes, beef, veal, lamb, patés, poultry, stews, soups, veggies, pasta and salads. [Marjoram]
Dill Weed$7.25 – $19.60
A flavorful complement to foods, dill was also added to magic potions in the Middle Ages to protect homes and people from spells.
The flavor of dill has been described as citrus, fennel, and mint combined, and it’s best when added at the end of cooking to preserve the flavor. Add Dill Weed to salads, soups, fish and shellfish, vegetables and sauces.
California Chile Pepper ~ Sweet Anaheim$5.00 – $23.00
Very sweet, with no heat, this Chile is the dried version of fully-ripened Anaheim Chile. Substitute for Paprika or Ancho Chile. Provides additional depth in Chili powders while modulating heat.
Peppermint$7.25 – $9.80
In Greek mythology, the nymph Minthe was turned into the sweet bush for Persephone. Valued as the herb of hospitality and for medicinal purposes, Romans spread it throughout Europe. American colonists also used mint as an untaxed tea.
Use on meats (especially lamb), chilled soups, stews, casseroles, new potatoes and rice. Mix with garlic and cream cheese for a dip. Try sprinkling on yogurt, fresh fruits or ice cream for a gourmet touch. [Peppermint]
