de Arbol Chile Pepper
$4.00 – $16.50
Popular in wreaths and other decorations because they retain a bright red color after drying, the Chile De Arbol (“tree-like” in Spanish) is named for its long, woody stem. Be sure to wash your hands after handling, since this Chile carries a strong punch.
Use in Salsa and other Southwest and Central American dishes. De Arbol Chiles are a good substitute for Cayenne, bringing a slightly smoky, crisp Chile flavor.

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]

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.
