Fresh Origins

As an organizer for this year's eGullet Chocolate and Confections Workshop in Vegas in May I'm starting to get samples sent to me, and every now and then one stands out as something really special to play with.

Fresh Origins sells microgreens, edible flowers, and crystalized herbs.  The fennel is knocking my socks off and I can't wait to work them into my pastry and savory dishes.  Essentially flavored sugar, the texture is light, not dense, and the flavors and colors are bright and clear.  The ingredients show them at cane sugar but I'd love to have them use isomalt and offer a less sweet version.  Either way - cool stuff.
