$5.25 – $15.00
A symbol of love in Italy, it’s said that a man with a sprig of basil in his hair announced his intentions to wed his love, and she announced her willingness with a pot of basil on her balcony.
A slightly peppery member of the mint family, Basil is pleasantly sweet backed with a bit of spice. Pair with tomato, add to pizza or use with egg dishes, fish, poultry, and salads. Basil is also the main ingredient in pesto.

Chervil$4.50 – $15.00
Chervil’s name comes from chaerophyllon, Greek for herb of rejoicing. A classic in French cuisine, it is used alone or as an ingredient in popular blends, such as Fines Herbes and Herbes de Provence. Ancient Romans also used Chervil as a flavoring herb.
Chervil has a light mild flavor, between parsley and anise, but more delicate. Add at the end cooking, so as not to diminish its flavor. Uses: butter and wine sauces, omelets and egg dishes, soups, salads, fish, chicken, and dressings. [Chervil]
Ancho Chile Pepper$4.25 – $18.75
The Ancho Chile is the dried version of the Poblano Pepper and the most popular dried chile in Mexican cooking. The sweetest of dried peppers, with deep, rich berry flavors, mild bitterness, and mild to medium hotness, Ancho is frequently used as the base flavor of sauce and spice mixes like dry rubs or mole. We stem and partially seed our Anchos by hand before milling to provide the strongest Chile flavors without being overpowered by excessive heat. Try replacing paprika with Ancho Chile Powder in any recipe to bring a fuller, earthier Chile flavor and beckoning for you to take another bite.
Rose Petal$4.75 – $11.00
Defining a rose as anything more than as itself was beyond Gertrude Stein, and we will not try to embarrass ourselves in the attempt.
A Rose is a Rose. Roses & other flowers have been used as flavorings for millennia across many cultures. In teas and tisanes, roses have long been considered a cure-all. This history, along with its delicate floral flavor and lovely color, made it particularly popular during the Victorian era.
Cumin$6.00 – $20.50
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.
