Bada Bing! Foodie Faves with Extra Flavor
Five pantry staples that promise to deliver extra zip and zest. Your kitchen will never be the same (in a good way).
1. Lemon aid
We are obsessed with INNA pickle’s salty lemon condiment. Think briny, citrusy preserved Meyer lemons chopped up and ready to be dolloped on top of fish or stirred into a vinaigrette. $13, innajam.com
2. Buzz worthy
Trader Joe’s Creamed Multi-Floral New Zealand Honey delivers a unique floral-earthy-herbal flavor profile that’s the
direct result of New Zealand bees pollinating native trees and plants. You’ll be hooked on the taste. $4, traderjoes.com
3. Open sesame
Tahini already has our hearts, but enter Hebel & Co’s halvas, which are crumbly, fudgelike confections, and we’re swooning. These halvas are not only organic and vegan, but also gluten-free and certified non-GMO. $14, hebelco.com
4. More, please
You might think of harissa – the North African condiment – as a paste. But New York Shuk’s Rosey Harissa comes in a dried blend, which makes it perfect for sprinkling on everything. The rose petals add delicate flavor, while the sun-
dried chiles bring subtle heat. $10, nyshuk.com
5. Go nuts!
Big Spoon Roasters’ handcrafted cashew butter draws a bit of sweetness from delicious coconut nectar. And with a
3-ounce jar option, you can even pack one in your carry-on when traveling. (Yep, been there, done that.) $15.50, bigspoonroasters.com
