$5.50 – $18.00
Traditional spice and herb blend from the land of the Russian Czars, used to enhance anything from chicken to veggies to fruit sauces. It is a key ingredient of regional dishes such as Satsivi, a cold walnut sauce, and Tkemali, a savory Georgian plum sauce that is as versatile as catsup. Coriander, herbs, paprika, with a touch of Saffron form the base seasoning, which provides a Georgian accent to eggs, soups, sauces and more.

Axiote$6.25 – $20.50
The Annatto tree is often referred to as the Lipstick Tree as it is used to color many cosmetics including lipstick. Native to the rain forests of the Yucatan and Belize, the spice is known throughout Central America by its Nahuatl name, Axiote. Blended with other spices and herbs, and ground into a paste, axiote is a mainstay of Yucatecan cuisine, and is used to season primarily chicken, but is also used on fish, lobster, and pork (achiote paste is marketed throughout Central America as “recado rojo”). In India, Hindu women use it to make the mark on their foreheads.
With a distinctive mildly bitter, earthy flavor, the annatto seed is most commonly used in Western culture as a food coloring for cheese, margarine, butter, rice, and smoked fish. We use it as a primary ingredient for our Belizean-inspired Axiote rub for chicken and fish.
