Fall Harvest Spice Box
Fall Harvest Spices Gift Box
The Fall Harvest Spices Gift Box is the perfect complement for enjoying the bounty of fall from local farmer’s markets. We love the dozens of varieties of apples: tart green ones for apple pie, tangy sweet reds for cider or sauce, and the always delicious Macintosh for eating. There's sure to be all sorts of squash and pumpkins, peppers and grapes. Painfully, it'll soon be the last sweet corn of the season. This is the time to set aside homemade tomato sauces using fine, sweet tomatoes, leeks, peppers and fresh basil. This seasoning selection was chosen with the fall harvest in mind, but is certain to be enjoyed all year round.
PUMPKIN PIE SPICE We use only the highest quality ingredients in this fine baking blend. Use 2-3 teaspoons per 9" pie. In addition to pumpkin pie, this blend enhances any type of vegetable bread, including pumpkin or zucchini bread, carrot cake, banana bread, fruit tarts or muffins, coffee cakes, fruit pies, sweet potato or winter squash pie, spice cakes; use about ½ tsp. per cup of batter. Very nice sprinkled lightly over French toast. Hand mixed from: sweet China cinnamon, Jamaican allspice, powdered cassia buds, ground nutmeg, ginger powder, ground mace, and ground Ceylon cloves
BICENTENNIAL SEASONING As the weather begins to cool, the mouth waters for the season’s first oven roast. While we love the grilling season, we also love the certain cool days of fall where the weather is invites you to light the oven and let a roast slowly cook, surrounded by all those fresh vegetables still available at the farmer’s markets. Simple delicious dishes, so easy to make, provided you have a little time for the roasting to bring out the flavors. This seasoning is delicious on turkey, chicken, duck, pheasant, goose or pork roasts. Hand-mixed from Kosher salt, sugar, black pepper, paprika, nutmeg, sage, crushed peppers.
CHICAGO OLD TOWN SPICED SUGAR A premium spiced sugar crafted from many high quality Madagascar Bourbon Islands vanilla beans and pure vanilla extract, cane sugar, Chinese cassia cinnamon and just a hint of cardamom. This is the perfect accompaniment to baked apples, pears or peaches. A sprinkle over squash is really delicious, especially apple stuffed acorn squash. A nice variation from honey or sugar for your morning cereal, toast or fruit.
MULLED WINE/APPLE CIDER SPICE To spice one standard bottle of red wine or brandy, first simmer 1 tablespoon mulling spice in water for 20 minutes to release flavors. For convenience, contain the spices in a muslin bag or a tea ball or cheesecloth pouch. Strain water from boiling water. Now add spices to the wine. Gently heat until wine is warm. Remove spices from wine and serve. For a non-alcoholic treat, try making spiced apple cider following the procedure above, using 3 tablespoons spices per gallon of cider. Mulled wine spices also make terrific spiced sun tea.
