Fennel Savory Blend with a dash of cinnamon

Click photo to purchase at ArtisanalSpice.etsy.com
Toasted fennel seed crushed with peppercorns, sea salt and a kiss of cinnamon combine contrasting notes in this savory blend. This is especially divine rubbed on pork, lean cuts of beef such as flank steak, chicken dishes, yams (oh my -- scroll down for that easy recipe!)
Each 1-ounce tin contains 2 tablespoons (15 grams/2 oz) of freshly blended seasoning.

IMPACT: Transforming and distinctive, fairly bold but not overpowering to foods.

TIP: To draw out the flavors of your spice blends before using them in your recipe, I suggest lightly & quickly heating them. Place the amount called for in the recipe in a heated saute pan over medium heat and toast quickly until the aromas are released, or mix them with a little hot cooking oil.

Cut fresh yams into 2-inch dice, toss in olive oil, a little salt, and a generous amount of my Savory Fennel Blend. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35-45 minutes or until golden-brown and done to your liking. Utterly delicious!!
