The blend is ground porcini mushrooms with sea salt, organic turbinado sugar, fresh ground black pepper and cayenne.

Salt & Other Seasonings

Sel de Guerande / Celtic Sea Salt                     $5 for 4 oz in a pinch pot jar

$9 for a 1 lb bag

$15 for a 2 lb bag

Organic French Grey Sea Salt

This salt is ground and ready for use in all your cooking and baking projects. ** We also carry the coarse size if you prefer. The color comes from the minerals in the clay lining the ponds where the salt water evaporates and the salt is collected. Salt has been collected like this in this area of France for over 2000 years. French sea salt has a tendency to absorb moisture. If you use it in a shaker, add a few grains of rice. I keep mine in pretty recycled jars and shot glasses and use my finger tips or a tiny spoon to add salt as I cook.

Grown and dried on a 400 acre family farm where the high elevation gives long sunny days and crisp nights. The mild, sweet Big Jim Chile comes in flake form wih a rich flavor and minimal heat so it can be sprinkled everywhere to add color and a warm sunny flavor with no heat.

These chiles are grown by the same farmer as the mild flakes above.The hot Sandia powder is a vibrant head turner, but its bursting flavors are far from incendiary. The XX Lumbre powder can be used in place of cayenne with much more flavor and a tad less heat. It all comes from one farmer who loves what he is doing!
