Cinnamon ~ Indonesian Cassia$5.50 – $18.00
The Greek poet, Sappho, referenced Cassia in 7th century B.C. Though not the “true” Cinnamon, Cassia (also called Chinese Cinnamon) is often sold as Cinnamon in the U.S., where it’s preferred for its strong, spicy and lingering flavor.
Use in both sweet and strong savory dishes: candies, baked goods, meats, preserves, curries, and hot beverages. Cassia, with its intense aromatic qualities and taste, is the popular choice for Cinnamon Rolls.
Pumpkin Pie Spice$6.00 – $19.50
The original English pumpkin pie was actually a whole pumpkin stuffed with apples, sugar, and a combination of spices, and then baked. This spice blend became known as Pumpkin Pie Spice in the 19th century. Use with pumpkin and squash recipes, cookies, sweet potato pie, custard, and cheesecake or be daring and sprinkle on ice cream, oatmeal or a latté.
Cloves$6.25 – $20.50
Despite attempts at clove monopolies, by the 18th century cloves were grown in many places including Brazil, Tanzania, and Madagascar. The whole Clove looks much like a nail, hence its French namesake, “clou” (nail).
Use in pastries, puddings, cooked fruits, and cakes, or sprinkle on oatmeal for a treat. Also yummy in stews and vegetables. Pairs well with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.
Sweet Things Gift Box$26.00
A spice concerto in three movements…
Dawn – I greet you in the morning, added to your yogurt.
I’m subtly sweet, featuring Vanilla and Saffron,
with bites of Sesame & Flax Seed.
Dusk – I treat you in the evening, offering a sophisticated,
sweet dust with striking aromatics. I bring a “sweet”
register to fruit, berries, dairy and cakes.
Dark – I delight you after the sun goes down with spices
used by the Maya to flavor the coveted Ka’kau’ (Cacao) bean.
I add the thrill of unfamiliarity to your most traditional dessert.
Lovely striped Kraft gift box contains these three unique spices in our standard jars and the above message, tied with a Local Spicery bow.
Orange Peel$6.25 – $22.50
Orange leaves were once believed to aid sleep and the peel to stimulate circulation. Celebrated by the Chinese poet, Tu Fu (A.D. 712-770), when he wrote that the leaves of Orange trees put clouds to shame.
Use to enhance flavor in desserts, gravies, sauces, vegetables, and starchy and meat dishes. Orange Peel powder or granules can be substituted in baked recipes for fresh orange zest.
