Like a sweet spreadable gummy garlic flavored like honey and soy sauce, black garlic is an excellent addition to pretty much anything.

Dillo Dust Chili Lime Seasoning - DilloSeasoning.com

Dillo Chili Lime Seasoning

Dillo Chili Lime Seasoning

Dillo Chili Lime Seasoning. It’s spicy but not too hot, and tangy but not too puckery. Rather than a finely ground powder that mixes right in to recipes, its somewhat coarse grind delivers just a bit of texture, allowing it to stand out as a condiment. We’ve tasted commercial versions of this blend that are significantly more salty – we think ours delivers more Chile Lime flavor with less salt. Though salt is the third ingredient. Try it on just about anything. Our favors are Beef, Chicken, Shrimp, Corn, Mango and Watermelon.

Wild Bergamot (Dried)

Wild Bergamot, also known as Bee Balm or Monarda (Monarda fistulosa) is a perennial plant in the mint family. It is native to the Midwestern United States and can be found in large patches in restoration prairie. This Monarda is sourced from private property, away from roadway and agricultural pollution. The flowers are picked sparingly from each cluster and dried quickly to preserve the unique aromas and flavors. It can be used in place of oregano or as a tea plant. The flavor is somewhat spicy, slightly bitter, floral, and earthy in the way that many prairie flowers smell. Submerging the flowers in olive oil is an easy way to infuse wild flavors into your pasta dishes and salad dressings. Make natural sodas or vinegar. Each pouch contains 2 oz of flower heads.

Wild Sumac – Fresh. S...

Fresh Staghorn sumac, or Rhus typhina, is identified by the red fruit clusters resembling  the velvety antlers of a male deer (stag), hence the name of “staghorn.”  

Sumac berries also have a long history as an herbal remedy.  Pioneers treated coughs, sore throats and fevers with sumac, while certain tribes of American Indians used these berries to treat reproductive problems, stomachaches, and wounds.  Today, many Middle Eastern cultures still use sumac over vinegar or lemons – and have it in shakers on the table to season their favorite foods in much the same way salt and pepper are common settings in the US.

Fresh Wild Fragrant Sumac Berries

Fresh Wild “Fragrant ...

Fragrant sumac, or Rhus aromatica, is identified by the red velvety fruit clusters.  The name is derived from the Syriac word for red, and “rhus” from the same meaning in ancient Greek. 

Sumac berries also have a long history as an herbal remedy.  Pioneers treated coughs, sore throats and fevers with sumac, while certain tribes of American Indians used these berries to treat reproductive problems, stomachaches, and wounds. 

Many Middle Eastern cultures use sumac over vinegar or lemons – and have it in shakers on the table to season their favorite foods in much the same way salt and pepper are common settings in the US.  You will find plentiful guides to making sumac “lemonade” but the possibilities are really endless. The dried powdered sumac you find in stores has been propagated and processed.  It is a similar plant, though it is said different from the endemic versions growing here in the US.

But these are fresh.  It is labor intensive to gather in season, and the practice makes them distinct and therefore considerably more expensive.  If you are able, I challenge you to try them fresh. 

They have a delightfully citrus, sour flavor, with a pop of earthiness.  They are stunning whole and you need very few to make an impact in a dish.  They are rarely used or available this way, so take advantage of the fresh and seasonality, and be sure to share what you make with them and we will feature on our site and possibly the marketplace site as well! 

*This listing is for a 2oz collection of fresh fragrant sumac.  Some branches may still be attached to keep the integrity and minimize handling.  They are relatively delicate and sticky as ripe fresh berries. A few green may be mixed in, but the majority will be prime red ripe berries.  These are all sustainably wild harvested, only a portion of berries are picked from each bush so that there is plenty left for the plant, animals, and insects to thrive.
