Fresh Origins, producer of microgreens and edible flowers, recently introduced Herb Crystals® and Flower Crystals® at the 2013 Summer Fancy Food show. With dazzling, all-natural colors and the flavors of fresh flowers and herbs, the crystals are perfect ingredients for adding a distinctive finishing touch to any culinary creation.
Carefully hand-harvested at the peak of flavor and color, fresh herbs and edible flowers are combined with pure cane sugar to create vibrant, flavorful crystals. Their crispy texture and concentrated flavor brighten up salads, pair well with savory dishes and add crunch to baked goods and desserts. The crystals can even be tossed into a cocktail for a surprise of color at the bottom of the glass, whose flavor will be savored in the last sip.
Herb Crystals are available in basil and mint, and flower crystals are available in fennel and rose. Mini Herb and Flower Crystals—available in the same flavors but with a finer grain—are also available, perfect for rimming the glasses of creative drinks and cocktails.

According to Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth.” In fact, your tears and your blood contain the same balance of salt and trace elements as found in sea salt that has been naturally dried for 13 to 22 months. New Zealand Pacific Sea Salt is harvested from the clean southern seas surrounding New Zealand. It contains no anti-caking or free flowing agents, and it contains all the natural trace elements that your body requires in a perfect balance.
Pacific Resources is an exclusive importer of this high quality sea salt from New Zealand. It is packaged in several convenient sizes from 4 ounces to 26 ounces. In addition, the product comes in two styles: fine and coarse kosher and 16-ounce organic/kosher. The 2.2-pound bags can also be used as a very special rejuvenating bath salt
A new addition to the Pacific Resources family is Mesquite Smoked Pacific Sea Salt in coarse or fine, a great addition to any meal that requires a down-home country barbecue flavor. Also, the company’s new 4- and 16-ounce salt grinders work great for a fresh grind every time.

Busha Browne is most famous for an all-purpose jerk seasoning rub made from a selection of crushed herbs and spices, comprised predominantly of escellion (spring onion), Scotch bonnet peppers and pimento (allspice) berries.
Jerk is the authentic Jamaican method of cooking. The term refers to a method of grilling meats using a combination of highly spiced seasonings. The meat is then cooked over a pimento wood fire. The process is a slow and savory one that traps all the spice and juices inside the meat, resulting in an aromatic smoked flavor. Oven-baked jerk is the newest method and is currently taking hold in North America. For oven-based jerk, you simply season your favorite meats with Busha Browne’s Authentic Jamaican Jerk Seasoning, add some cooking oil, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until done.
Busha Browne’s Authentic Jamaican Jerk Seasoning is the traditional hot and spicy seasoning paste specially compounded for jerk meat, fish, vegetables or tofu. Used prudently prior to cooking, this seasoning will provide the most pungent flavor and an absolutely irresistible aroma.

Naked Sea Salt’s mission is to introduce the world to gourmet salt from the Dead Sea that is an all-natural, low-sodium and mineral-rich alternative to artificially refined salt. Founded by environmental activist Ari Leon Fruchter, the company encourages regional cooperation by working with a Palestinian company that specializes in harvesting salt from the Dead Sea’s healing waters by using traditional chemical-free methods that preserve the water’s unique mineral content.
Each of Naked Sea Salt’s 15 flavors has been blended with organic herbs and spices to create a salt of bold, creative taste and unparalleled nutrition. “Each blend is a modern twist on an ancient classic,” Fruchter said. “Salt and spice in one—as easy as twist and serve.”
With its dedication to environmental and economic concerns, part of the company’s mission is to serve as a model of sustainable, ethical practice for private manufacturing companies in the region. For more information, visit www.nomadigo.com/nakedseasalt or email email@example.com.
