California Chile Pepper$4.00 – $18.75

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.
French Vinaigrette$6.50 – $21.00
Traditional French meals are completed by serving a simple salad course, frequently just lettuce or frisee leaves moistened by a very light vinaigrette. Our French Vinaigrette Dressing is authentically based on shallots, milled mustard seed, and French herbs. After mixing (directions below), pour some dressing into the bottom of your salad bowl before adding the dry lettuce. Toss and enjoy. Also makes a wonderful marinade for asparagus, broccoli, or green beans. Bon appetit!
Traditional French dressing or vegetable marinade directions: Mix 2T Blend with 2T water, let stand 5 minutes to rehydrate. Whisk in ½ cup olive oil & 1/4 to 1/3 cup vinegar (typically sherry vinegar, wine vinegar, or our personal favorite, champagne vinegar).
- Toss some French Vinaigrette Spice Blend on white fish before grilling or pan-frying.
