Jalapeño Chile Pepper
$8.50 – $23.00
Traditionally cultivated in Veracruz, Mexico, this Chile Pepper has also become a favorite of the Southwestern United States. Not too hot and not too mild, it is delicate in its dried form and should be added to foods for finishing.
Just before serving, add to Southwestern dishes, guacamole, corn bread, salad dressings, eggs, potatoes and vegetables for a little kick. It will lose its flavor and heat if added too early in the cooking process.

Saigon Cinnamon (aka Vietnamese Cinnamon) is the strongest and sweetest species of Cinnamon available. Ours is freshly milled from organically grown quills to get the most intense flavor possible. Holds up to Vietnamese Pho and full-flavor meats; makes a great addition to yogurt; or ratchet up your baking with this powerful, nearly hot cinnamon flavor.
Although packaged by weight, the whole bulk bag contains roughly a dozen 2.75″ quills.
- Add 1-2 tsp Saigon Cinnamon to 1 cup Straus Family Organic yogurt.

Calabrian Chile Pepper$10.00 – $27.00
Fiery hot, yet bright, sweet, and with a flavor reminiscent of San Marzano tomatoes, this bewitching chile hits you with an immediate blast of fire, disipating in seconds and beckoning for you to take another bite. Perfect on top of pizza or pastas, or use as a general source of heat in your kitchen. Packaged with a sprinkle of salt.
Basil$7.25 – $19.60
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.
Parsley$7.25 – $19.60
Dedicated to the Greek goddess Persephone, parsley was valued for medicinal purposes and folk magic well before it was incorporated into European cuisine in the middle ages. Romans used it as a breath freshener and to prevent intoxication from wine.
Use it as edible garnish or add to stews, soups, sauces, dressings, eggs, potatoes and vegetables. Parsley is said to help prevent halitosis! [Parsley]
