Peconic River Herb Farm Offers Organic Seasonings
June 22, 2012 | East End Eats
East Enders looking for an easy way to spice up a meal will find it in the form of Salvation Seasonings from Calverton’s Peconic River Herb Farm. “We make them from certified organic dried herbs and spices,” says owner Cristina Spindler, whose summer dishes frequently feature the Chile Lime Zap! seasoning. With equal parts crushed red pepper flakes, lime peel, and sea salt, “it’s great on roasted and grilled vegetables, and also wonderful on fish,” she says.
Her other favorites for grilling include the Habanero Hot Sauce, “made with habanero peppers that we grow ourselves,” says Spindler. “It’s a really nice seasoning sauce for grilling because it mixes well with fruit juices if you want to make a marinade.” For a sweet treat, she likes the Toast Topper, “which is granulated maple syrup with cinnamon, orange peel, and brown sugar— great for grilled fruits like peaches and apples.” 2749 River Road, Calverton, 369-0058
