Ancho Chile Pepper$4.25 – $18.75
The Ancho Chile is the dried version of the Poblano Pepper and the most popular dried chile in Mexican cooking. The sweetest of dried peppers, with deep, rich berry flavors, mild bitterness, and mild to medium hotness, Ancho is frequently used as the base flavor of sauce and spice mixes like dry rubs or mole. We stem and partially seed our Anchos by hand before milling to provide the strongest Chile flavors without being overpowered by excessive heat. Try replacing paprika with Ancho Chile Powder in any recipe to bring a fuller, earthier Chile flavor and beckoning for you to take another bite.
French Vinaigrette$6.00 – $19.50
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).
