Invoke the Hawaiian Goddess of the volcano (Pele), with this fiery blend of hot chili peppers and Volcanic Salts mined from the islands. Pele doesn’t like it when visitors take rocks/minerals off the island so she imbued this finishing salt with her fiery lava heat! Perfect on most anything that is savory and in need of salt, like: Vegetables, Eggs, Popcorn, and plated meals in general that are just begging for some heat!

Habanero Hickory Smoked Salt:
IMG_20191221_115314 (2)
A customer favorite… probably because the flavor and the heat of the habaneros are perfectly in balance with salty and sweet flavors from the hickory smoked Himalayan Pink Salt. Some of the best uses for this salt are: mixed in with a BBQ rub for pork or chicken to acquire that wood smoked flavor without having to actually smoke the meat.

Fatali-Citron Salt:
Fatali is one of the best Super-hot peppers (850,000 Scoville Heat Units) in terms of citrusy flavor and pungent tropical pepper aroma. The strain is so old that it’s assumed to have originated in central Africa in the mid 1800’s from peppers (which had recently been introduced from South America). The heat level is similar to that of habanero Only Slightly hotter. The Yemeni style curry powder is lighter and more delicate than that of Thai or Indian curry and in conjunction with the Citron salt and Fatali pepper complexity, this seasoning salt has the capacity to transform most foods with just a sprinkle!

Herb & Salt Blends

Fleur De Montcuq:
IMG_20191221_114242 (2)
Similar to Herbes De Provence. Named for the French town from which Sara’s ancestors came. This seasoning is reminiscent of the French riviera and the large bins of bulk mixed herbs found at farmer’s markets across southern France. Anise, Fennel, and other licorice-like flavors accentuate herbal flavors like savory, thyme, and lavender. Uses: Chicken, Potatoes, Green Beans, Artichoke, Salad Dressing, Steak, Lamb or Goat (Especially Goat Cheese).
Vegetable & Greens Seasoning:
For all vegetables and greens. This seasoning has the traditional flavors of southern greens seasonings (paprika, garlic, onion powder etc.), that not only work well with vegetables but, also makes vegetables more palatable to those who are veggie averse. It uses a trifecta of bright licorice flavors from dill, fennel and celery seeds. Topped off with light Herbal flavors (Thyme and Tarragon) and a Small amount of Himalayan salt and raw turbinado sugar. Use generously when stewing greens, and more conservatively on sautéed or steamed veggies.

Salmon Run:
Great on all fish, on fresh cucumbers and even good in pickle brine! Dill sits at the forefront, backed up by subtle yet apparent complexities of both lemon basil and Tarragon, dried parsley adds yet another dimension of flavor which ties in with the coumarin flavor of the dill with a combination of Pink Himalayan Salt & Pacific Blue Sea salt.

Lamb Rub:
Sage forward, yet; balanced with the ever so magical combination of Parsley and Mint, as well as deep lemony citrus flavors from citron infused salt and wild Sumac (Rhus Glabra). These flavors tied together with the aromatic floral yet herbal character of Rosemary. Suitable to a Mediterranean palate, this seasoning not only works well with lamb, but also on fish, chicken, goat and even in breakfast sausage.

Pork Rub:
IMG_20191221_114744 (2)
Truly an all-around roasting/grilling seasoning. This is due to: the layers of complex herbal aromatics, a savory onion-garlic backbone, sharp and floral flavor of black and Szechuan peppercorns, the subtle sweetness of the mango powder (Amchur), peppery citrus notes from grains of paradise, and the subtle Smoky flavor imparted by grapevine smoked salt. This seasoning makes excellent pork chops in the oven or stove-top, and is excellent for adding caramelization on the grill, also works well on poultry, and vegetables.

Steak Seasoning:
The flavors naturally found in steak require a delicate yet bold approach when it comes to seasoning. Beyond Salt and Black Pepper, Strong Aromatic seed oils (such as: Dill, and Mustard) must be used alongside herbs (like Savory and Thyme) that accentuate, but not overpower the meat. Aromatic seeds are left whole or slightly crushed so that they may be re-awoken (crushed in a mortar and pedestal) upon use.

Greek Seasoning:
Think Gyros…This seasoning is designed for making the best and most authentic Greek Gyros!

IMG_20191221_115620 (2)
A Tongue tingling, mouthwatering Szechuan Seasoning loaded with “Mala” flavor. It is like a sleeping dragon…just simmer a teaspoon or so in a few tablespoons of vegetable oil to awaken the hot chilies and peppercorns; then create the Szechuan sauce with a little rice wine vinegar, honey/brown sugar, and Chinese cooking wine. Or toss some fried chicken in the infused oil for a more potent (and authentic) numbing-tingling experience from the higher concentration of hydroxy-α-sanshool in the peppercorns and capsaicin in the peppers.
