There isn’t much better than the bounty of fruit that appears in the summertime – rhubarb, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, stonefruit, melons... it all happens in the summer. We’ve got an unusual and delicious way for you to kick up your next fruit salad or dessert – Pink Peppercorns! The flavor of the Pink Peppercorn is incomparable. There really isn’t anything else like it. The outer fluorescent shell of the berry sloughs off and inside is the pungent and punchy inner core. Initially, the flavor is quite sweet. Those hints of sweetness give way to a complex flavor profile of juniper and spruce, spiced woodsy notes, and earthy forest flavors. Just imagine a few crushed berries folded in with freshly sliced strawberries and
vanilla panna cotta – or a sprinkling of whole berries on a crème brulee with sugared raspberries. Heaven!
There are few foods better on the grill than fresh sweet corn.
Butter it up and pass the sea salt! We can’t think of a better version of that than the famous corn centric street food elotes or Mexican street corn. Sweet corn, hot off the grill is slathered with a mixture of spices, lime juice, and mayo before being crusted in dried cotija cheese. Our Lafayette Spices version takes it just a step further and kicks the whole thing up a notch with the addition of Espellette Salt. Piment d E’spelette (or Espelette Pepper) is the star of our Espelette Salt. It’s a little smoky, a little sweet, and just a touch spicy. It’s going to make your next batch of grilled corn absolutely sing!
