I adore the history of your work as much as the end products. I have a small contribution to make regarding the Garam Marsala mix. Instead of the insipid commercial apple pie spice available, I only use your Garam Marsala and about 1/4 of the sugar called for in recipes concerning apples. And butternut squash. And stuffing. The little bit of bite from the pepper you use makes a more interesting flavor. I do this with peaches and pears too, and often mix fruits. Most fruit is good, whole and plain, but, in autumn when the winds doth blow - I am fond of making fruit compotes with raisens and/or prunes with apples and pears. Wouldn't be the same without Auntie Arwen's Garam Marsala. One last thing - I add Garam Marsala to hot apple cider (and cognac too). Love you and what you do. xoxodeb
Jon D. - Shared his Hummus recipe on Arwen's FB page
1 1/2 tsp of Arwen's spice mix
1 tsp sea salt
15 oz can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
All into a food processor until smooth... it is awesome and healthy.
Also try substituting rinsed Adzuki beans for the chickpeas.

Thank you to the Town of Waterbury, CT for hosting today's Holiday Makers Market.
Thank you for preserving this for generations to come. We were in the alcove next to the stairs where the soda machines are (removed during the event).
Over 40 Teas and over 20 Tisanes are online & ready for you, just in time for the cold weather.
Descriptions & ingredients continue to be filled in as we get there.
As always if you do not see it up online, just ask at the links on top. We can get them online for your ordering convenience.
Thank you for your continued patience. We are glad to see people stopping in to check out the new look and all the goodies we have.
We now have a shopping cart up, have to test drive it. But we are on the way, most of the blends are in categories. Email or post here if your favorite is not visible.
Bonfire smoked Salt is extremely limited due to the manufacturer wanting to keep it to themselves and sell in small individual quantities. Much more expensive. We still have some available.
Disclaimer -- Extracts are not priced & can not be sold at this time due to having to get the size & prices set up. I need to be closer to them for this. Will be up soon for your holiday needs. Give us until the end of the month - Qty's are currently listed as 0 until we have a price / size option.
Please be patient while we work out the new ways to operate here & share to spread the word that we are open !!
Updates happening; Curry blends,smoked salts, Salt-free are added in. Lots more cross referenced from categories where needed.
A couple tweaks here and there to change the look.
I found the option to put the categories to the left.
Pictures will be a slow undertaking, next time I set up will see if we are in a good lighting location again.
