Stock your pantry with quality, unique offerings.
From vegetable-based flours to bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup, these innovative new ingredients will soon become permanent fixtures in your pantry. Each of these artisanal, versatile products is guaranteed to elevate the quality and flavor of sweet and savory dishes alike.
Artisan Kettle Organic Chocolate
Unlike most organic chocolate brands, Artisan Kettle manufactures its own chocolate. Each recipe uses quality ingredients like Fair Trade Certified™ cocoa, real vanilla, organic cane sugar and organic cocoa butter.
Artisan Kettle Chocolate Chips add full-bodied flavor to baked goods. Their Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar is another baking essential and even won a SOFI award for New Product of the Year in 2018.
There are so many delicious ways to use Artisan Kettle chocolate. We love to chop their Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar into chunks to blend into our Pear and Bittersweet Chocolate Yogurt Cake, then finish it off with a rich Artisan Kettle chocolate ganache. If you like sweets with a kick, their rich chocolate is also perfect for Mexican Hot Chocolate Spicy Brownies.
Runamok Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup
If you’re serious about maple syrup, you need Runamok in your pantry. Crafted in Vermont, these small-batch syrups are taste-tested daily to ensure they’ve reached peak flavor before bottling and entering your pantry.
Their bourbon barrel-aged syrup is aged in recently emptied bourbon barrels, so it absorbs the rich, complex flavors of bourbon without the alcohol. They also offer other unique flavors, like maple syrup infused with cinnamon and vanilla.
Sure, Runamok is amazing on pancakes and waffles. It’s also delicious blended with mascarpone in our recipe for Pumpkin Custard Tart with Maple Mascarpone Whipped Cream and is a must-have ingredient in our scrumptious Maple Butter Cake. You can even add it to cocktails!
The Fresh Market Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Paste
Vanilla bean paste is much thicker than vanilla extract. It also works as a one-to-one substitute for vanilla extract and infuses your recipes with a deeper, more vibrant vanilla essence.
We love that it’s flecked with real vanilla bean seeds, which adds a subtle, sweet suggestion of vanilla flavor to your baked goods.
Use our vanilla bean paste whenever you want to add a little something extra to desserts and baked goods—from ice cream, cake and buttercream frosting to crème brulee. If you’re looking for a specific recipe to try, you can’t go wrong with our decadent Chocolate Ganache Cake with Peppermint Crunch. Subtle vanilla flavor is the perfect complement to rich, deep chocolate.
India Tree Sugars
Grown on family farms and milled at a communal co-op, India Tree’s cane sugars are unrefined and mineral-rich. They’re also fair trade, non-GMO and kosher.
Add them to your favorite baked goods or stir them into coffee and tea for a sweet pick-me-up.
The best ingredients make the best eats. We love (love) this recipe for Maple Pecan Sticky Buns. These rolls are warm, decadent and just begging to be enjoyed with a mug of hot coffee. Best of all? Our easy, scratch-made dough proofs overnight while you sleep! Use India Tree Caster Sugar in the dough and add their Dark Muscovado Sugar to the sticky-sweet topping.
Date Lady Organic Date Sugar and Syrup
Made entirely of organic dates, this unique syrup is one of the only whole sweeteners on the market and is not processed in any way. It’s even been called “The World’s Healthiest Sweetener” because of its high amounts of potassium, antioxidants, fiber and magnesium.
Plus, it’s undeniably delicious and super-versatile.
Although this product is sweet, it’s fantastic in savory recipes, too. Try our Date Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Hazelnuts (you’ll never look at Brussels sprouts the same way again). Date syrup adds just enough sweetness, pancetta adds a delicious saltiness and hazelnuts add just enough crunch. We also love to use date syrup in date and almond hummus—trust us, it’s delicious.
Date Lady Organic Date Sugar and Syrup are available in most, but not all stores.
Glean Alternative Flours
These one-of-a-kind, allergen-free, gluten-free, vegan and paleo-friendly flours (in sweet potato, pumpkin, beet powder and cauliflower) are made entirely from a single ingredient: vegetables! The Fresh Market is the first retailer to carry the entire line of Glean products.
Not sure how to add Glean flours to your menu? Here are some ideas:
- Add to juices and smoothies for extra nutrients
- Use to thicken sauces and soups
- Whisk into salad dressings
- Use to make pastas
- Sprinkle over yogurt
- Use as a natural food colorant (think naturally red velvet cake!)
- Use for breading when baking or frying meat or vegetables
- Whip up our outstanding Banana Nut Muffins
Pro tip: Each of these flours is less absorbent than regular, all-purpose flour, so make sure you decrease the liquid in your recipe by 25%. Also, lower cooking temperatures are encouraged (below 350°F) for best results.
