Wellington Farm is an extraordinary place. The moment you arrive you are struck by the beauty and order of the farm. Lush with herbs, flowers and fields of organic crops. Carolyn and Frederick are dedicated to growing only the best culinary herbs at their Certified Organic farm in the northern foothills of New York's Catskill Mountains. Many of the herbs and spices that are sold in supermarkets contain percentages of inert ingredients, in other words, something other than the herb or spice on the label. Their mission is to bring pure ingredients, and pure flavors, to the home cook. We are proud to offer their herbs and spices, and very glad to be their neighbors.
.80 oz. Aromatic dill weed is more delicately flavored than the seed from the same plant. It enhances rather than dominates and is delicious in salads, sauces, light gravies, and with fish and grains.
1.40 oz. Fragrant and distinctive, fennel’s slightly licorice taste is most often enjoyed with fish. But don’t save it for fish nights; try its anise-like flavor in soups and salads, and with grains and vegetables, too.
2.20 oz. It’s hard to imagine a kitchen void of vanilla. Its full, rich, universally popular taste and enticing aroma is irreplaceable in cookies, cakes, custards, ice cream—almost every conceivable sweet—and a few savory dishes, too.
1.95 oz. Enjoyed in cuisines the world over for its warm, spicy-sweet aroma and flavor, ginger complements both sweet (think gingerbread) and savory (think stir fry) dishes. It’s available in whole root, cut and sifted, powdered, and crystallized,
.95 oz. From Grenada, the Spice Island of the Caribbean, Mace is the dried, lacy covering of the nutmeg seed. It’s used in soups, stuffing, puddings and baked goods for flavoring and in light-colored sauces for its lovely, saffron-like color.
2.25 oz. Black Pepper lends satisfying heat and bite to most any dish (and it is great for salt-free diets). It works well in combination with other herbs and spices, too, and can be used in your favorite spice blends.
.30 oz. Get ready for a taste sensation. These organic dried peppers are a key ingredient in Jamaican “jerk” sauces, and lots of other Caribbean and Latin dishes. Use to your taste, they are very hot.
1.35 oz. Enjoyed in cuisines the world over for its warm, spicy-sweet aroma and flavor, ginger complements both sweet (think gingerbread) and savory (think stir fry) dishes. It’s available in whole root, cut and sifted, powdered, and crystallized.
