The beauty of this soup is its simplicity. Just a few ingredients make for a big comforting and flavorful soup. Our Autumn Spice Blend is a unique combo of aromatics – onion, garlic, shallot – and warm spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. It serves as a big flavor boost for chicken, pork tenderloin and turkey. Oh, and root vegetables like butternut squash – and this soup!
Shortbread crust, pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar crunch topping…could this dessert get any better? This one is a definite for your holiday repertoire. The crisp, salty crust is the perfect compliment to the sweet topping. Oh, and our Pumpkin Spice Tea makes the perfect pairing.
The most perfect winter salad! Crunchy toasty pecans and blue cheese top bright crisp celery and fennel with a homemade vinaigrette using our Champagne Pear Balsamic Vinegar and Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Garnish with a big handful of rich Bergeron Pecans for added crunch.
Our Autumn Spice Blend is such a flavor explosion, we’re thinking of renaming it “All Year Long Blend.” Delicious on root veggies (like these carrots.) Fantastic on pork tenderloin. A must for Thanksgiving turkey. It’s subtle, rich flavor pairs perfectly with so many things.
We adapted this libation from Food and Wine, subbing out the schnapps for more ginger, cloves and apple. We dredge the glass rims in Cinna Nilla Sugar so that each sip delivers the full essence of Autumn. This Sangria is perfect for fall days that don’t feel so fall-ish yet. Cool, refreshing while still capturing the flavors of fall.
