Spruce Tips


2.5-3 oz

While not an herb in the traditional sense, spruce tips have a bright, citrus flavor that works well to enhance other flavors in both savory and sweet dishes. Literally the young growth on branches of spruce trees, these babies have a strong flavor so you only need a few to really infuse your dishes with bright, woodsy life. Remove the paper covering of any tips before eating, just as you would fiddleheads, then sprinkle sparingly raw into salads or veggie dishes; puree into ice creams or panna cottas; infuse into syrups for cocktails or finishers.

Store in a plastic bag with a couple holes punched in it for them to breathe, along with a damp paper towel or two to help hold in moisture for up to a month. Change paper towel weekly.
