Baker's Bounty

Cloves: Cloves are the rich, brown, dried, unopened flower buds of an evergreen tree native to the “Spice Islands” in Indonesia. The name comes from the French “clou” meaning nail. Cloves are strong, pungent, and sweet and in its ground form, spice up applesauce, cakes, muffins, cookies, gingerbread and a variety of baked goods.

Nutmeg: Nutmeg has a pungent aroma and sweet flavor. Nutmeg is an ideal baking spice for making fruit pies, cookies, muffins, cakes and sweet breads. Used as a topping it is often sprinkled over puddings, eggnog, whipped cream and custards. It can also be sprinkled lightly over chicken, veal and fish and used in sausages, soups and preserves.

Apple Pie Seasoning: A custom, balanced blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom gives our seasoning a delicate flavor to help enhance your apple baked dishes. Apple crisps, strudel, cakes, turnovers, cobblers, and of course, pies taste better as our blend helps distinguish the taste of the apples for a better baked dish.

Chinese Cinnamon: Chinese Cinnamon is also known as Cassia. Similar to true cinnamon, “Ceylon”, it is more pungent and has a less delicate flavor . Used widely in the United States, Cassia Cinnamon enhances the taste of vegetables, fruits and is used to mellow the tartness of apple pie.

Mace: Mace has a flavor and aroma similar to nutmeg, however slightly more pungent. Mace lends a fragrant, warm spiciness to many baked goods and can be used in puddings as well as fish and meat dishes. Sprinkle on anything chocolate, fruits and whipped cream. Mace can always be used as a substitute for Nutmeg.

Pumpkin Pie Seasoning: Our seasoning is made up of select cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and ground cloves. This blended recipe allows you to make the perfect pie every time. Substitute our seasoning in pumpkin recipes which require cinnamon or nutmeg for a more complex and flavorful result.

Ginger, ground: Ground ginger is used for confectionery items, desserts, savory dishes or added to curry mixes. Ground ginger is used in gingerbread, cookies, pies, as well as in Indian curries, and Asian foods. Ginger is slightly hot, rich, and aromatic.

Vanilla Paste: Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla Bean Paste is a convenient replacement for vanilla beans in any recipe. Because it contains vanilla bean seeds, the paste adds an all-natural, gourmet appearance to foods. Use it for making traditional favorites such as ice cream, gelato and crème brulee, or to enhance whip cream, cakes and icings.

Allspice: Allspice is the dried berry of an evergreen tree native to tropical America. The sweet flavor of Allspice lends itself to a wide variety of foods. Use allspice to enhance desserts such as applesauce, fruit compotes, and cookies with a warm, sweet flavor. It can also be used in pickling spice, spiced tea mixes, cakes, and pies.

Cardamom: Cardamom is a main ingredient in many Indian curries. It's often used as a flavoring in oatmeal cookies for a warm, sweet flavor. Use a little Cardamom to add flavor to coffee cake, Danish pastry, specialty breads, and apple pie. Try a little in your ground coffee before brewing, then sweeten and top with cream.

Anise Seed: Anise is great in cookies, breads and cakes. Use in soups, stews, curries, fruit cobblers and pies. It has a licorice-like flavor and is popular in candies and Anise oil is used in liqueurs. Anise gives fish and shellfish a Mediterranean flavor by adding it to seafood stews.

Nutmeg Whole: Nutmeg (Myristica Fragans) is the inner kernel of the fruit from an Evergreen Tree native to the Spice Islands. Nutmeg is best if fresh ground, because it can loose its flavor if stored too long. Grind nutmeg and add it toward the end of the cooking process because its flavor diminishes when heated. Use for making fruit pies, cookies, muffins, cakes and sweet breads.

Lavender. Sprinkle lavender over frosted sugar cookies or butter cream iced white cakes for a sophisticated touch. Lavender can also be substituted for rosemary in many bread recipes. Use it as a garnish for sorbets or ice creams. Lavender can also be used to add a delicate flavor to vinaigrette salad dressings and light
