French Four & More
French Four & More Choucroute Garni Seasoning
French Four and More is a lovely blend we feel is an improvement over the traditional French four-spice mixture, Quatre Epices. This recipes comes to us from Julia Child, one of the masters of French cooking. When in town representing the American Institute of Wine and Food, Ms. Child taught a cooking class for a few lucky students. Her staff called on us to make up this batch of seasoning to her own particular specification for use in a special sausage dish. To quote The Way To Cook, Julia Child writes: "A sojourn of several hours or overnight in the following spice mixture gives pork chops, roasts and sausage meat an exceptional fine flavor; a jar of it in your spice rack is useful to have on hand." Since this blend is salt-free, it is a very strong seasoning; use only 1/2 tsp per pound of meat. Hand mixed from: Malaysian ground white pepper, ground Turkish hand select bay leaves, ground Zanzibar cloves, mace, nutmeg, paprika, thyme, allspice, cinnamon and savory.
