Chesterhaven Farms Honey

The KosherEye team has recently tasted some new honeys - and think that they are lovely for Yom Tov. Waxing Kara is a company based on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Chesterhaven Farm. Each jar of Waxing Kara honey is bottled and packaged by hand in the USA. The honeys are raw unpasteurized, and kosher certified by the Star K. Varieties are seasonal, with differing floral and fruit sources.. What a wonderful hostess gifts or a gift yourself!

We like good vinegar, and are delighted that we can now find several excellent brands and types that are OU kosher certified.

AvoCoco web 0x600AvoCoco Oil
La Tourangelle has been known over the years to offer exceptional oils. With origins in the Loire Valley of France, La Tourangelle is one of these few remaining oil mills keeping this heritage alive in Saumur, France,  and since 2002, in Woodland, California. It is a family-owned company.

Over the years, KosherEye has used La Tourangelle stir-fry oil, wok oil, toasted sesame oil and roasted walnut oil. We enjoy the  extra layer of flavor that the infused oils add to our dishes, and the confidence that the oil complements the food.

Now we are fans of one of their newest products AvoCoco oil. We have been working with it for the past two months, and agree with the buzz --. It is an ideal butter substitute for sautéing, frying, searing and baking. We also like it mixed into salad dressings.

AvoCoco is a healthy parve substitute for butter, due to its high level of unsaturated fats. It is a mix of organic coconut oil, avocado oil and organic sunflower oil. For frying (Yes, we do a lot of that in the south) we find that it has a neutral flavor coupled with a high smoke point. Perfect!
La Tourangelle AvoCoco is kosher certified by the Star-K. Visit the La Tourangelle website for recipes and oil info.

Mina Moroccan Tomato Sauce - The Flavors of Morocco in a Jar

Yes, there really is a Mina behind this shakshuka sauce. Mina is from Morocco, and has journeyed the world with her family’s recipes, which were passed down through generations. As a young girl, Mina managed the cooking for ten younger siblings, making her mother's treasured recipes her own. Mina’s cooking talent set her on a journey from Morocco to Paris to New York where for years she served her specialties to private clients . Now, the Mina brand is enjoyed globally. 
Mina’s recipe uses only all natural ingredients…“tomatoes, roasted peppers, onions, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, cilantro, parsley, and a secret blend of 6 Moroccan spices. Simple, savory, and sizzling with flavor,” Our first taste of Mina’s special sauces was this OU certified shakshuka sauce. What a fabulous dish resulted.

BuzzBloom
We learned about Buzz + Bloom at the Fancy Food Show. We were initially attracted to this OU kosher certified brand because of their beautiful honey jars, designed to depict “the global, honey-making relationship between the honeybee and the flower”. Whether it is a lychee fruit tree or fresh citrus groves, the company offers a diverse line of honeys, sourced all over the world. The brand has no artificial ingredients, flavors or preservatives, and is gluten-free, fat-free and nut-free.

From the company “Some honeys are overheated, over filtered and over processed, stripping the honey of its natural pollens and nutrients. Buzz + Bloom believes that honey should have natural pollen in it, highlighting the floral essence of the area where the honey originates. That’s why Buzz + Bloom only gently strains its honey, ensuring that it retains its natural pollen and unique taste profile. The honeys are packaged at a lower temperature to help maintain the beneficial enzymes and antioxidants.”

Buzz + Bloom honeys are easily recognizable by their bright blue caps.
The Jewish “honey” season is here –so enjoy dipping, spreading, cooking or spooning this superfood. For more information, click: Buzzandbloomhoney.com

3 Honey Tips
Honey does not spoil. If you see crystals form in any honey jar, simply put the honey in the microwave for a few seconds.
Oil a spoon or measuring cup before filling with hone. It will release easily!
If honey has crystallized, put it in the microwave to heat for a few seconds.
