About Our Seasoning Blends
Peasant Cuisine: It’s What’s For Dinner!
Good food and good nutrition go hand-in-hand. Good food nourishes our bodies — great taste nourishes our souls!
Our fresh, wholesome spice and herb blends will…
- tickle your taste buds
- stimulate digestion
- provide essential enzymes and minerals.
That’s why, in our house, we cook traditional recipes using spice combinations we have collected from real people living in real communities here and around the globe. We call it “Peasant Cuisine,” and we think there’s nothing better for body or soul than to eat close to the earth from wholesome ingredients that taste out of this world!
About our Ingredients
- certified organic whenever available
- grown to organic standards when certified organic is not available
- in very rare instances when we cannot find either, or a substitute, we do use conventionally-grown ingredients
- no GMO products, ever
- always gluten free
- either no salt or low salt, and then only sea salt or Himalayan salt
- organic whole cane sugar
- organic Vermont-grown maple sugar
Even a fast meal can be flavorful, stimulate good digestion, and help satisfy our human need for beauty and taste. When you’re in a hurry, try one of our 30-minute-or-less meals.
For weekends and get-togethers we offer some tasty, unique meals in our grill recipes section.
Check out all of our recipes, just as we use them for our own dining table, categorized by spice blend or main ingredient.
