African Bird Pepper

This is really, really hot in a cayenne-type pepper way.  Not for the faint hearted!

CJ's Hot Seasoning

Carl’s special blend of seasonings that the Big Sur firemen loved on ribs.  We end up sprinkling it on as many foods as possible.  Our neighbor does the same!

French Curry

This French Curry is also known as Vadouvan. Some ingredients are smoked which gives it a softer flavor. It’s good on everything!

Garam Masala

A blend of spices from India, Pakistan & other South Asian cuisines.  It is great when used on chicken, pulled pork, ham, lamb, goat, veggies, spiced cashews.  For the adventurous, try it on ice cream or apple danish.  There is no turmeric in this curry so no yellowing the food.  Good if used with dairy in cooking (buttermilk, cream, butter).

Herbs de Provence

It all started in the 1970’s when the gals from the USA fell in love with Provence and the French Farm cooking. There was such a tremendous interest in their comfort food and learning what herbs the French gals were using that Herbs de Provence was put together.  It’s a soft blend that is good in soups, salads, on steak or on most anything.

Lavender

Our Food Grade lavender is the best.  No chemical sprays used & safe for consumption.  A little goes a long way.  Soups, salads, sauces, gravies and summer drinks, baking…shows it’s versatility.

Schwarma

This spice mix is part of the Levantine cuisine (a really long time ago) and is still influenced in Arabian and Turkish cuisine today. Used on meats that are on a vertical spit, cooked for hours and shaved off into amazing sandwiches.  I had this from a food truck in Seattle and it was wonderful.  We use the spice mix on kebabs & BBQ meat.

Spearmint

Spearmint can be used as a tea or in ice creams, jams, lemonade, salads and baking.

French Tarragon

Tarragon is in the sunflower family and used with chicken, fish, egg dishes, nut rolls, stews, pickles and is one of the main ingredients in Béarnaise sauce.
