Staff Picks: Condiments

JBF staff picks their favorite condiments

 

We don’t usually spend a lot of time talking about condiments, but the right one can completely transform a dish. Add a splash of soy sauce to chicken soup and it’s a whole different ballgame. Want to perk up a chicken and avocado club? Slather on a dollop of sriracha mayo. Tired of plain scrambled eggs? Give them a spicy, soulful kick with a spoonful of harissa. In the spirit of celebrating these unsung heroes, we put together a list of the condiments our staff is crazy about right now.

Staff Pick: End-of-Winter Citrus from the Orange Shop

Citrus from the Orange Shop in Florida
Last call for winter citrus: orange and grapefruit lovers have only a few more weeks to indulge before the season is over. We plan to make the most of it with a couple of boxes of temple oranges, honey tangerines, and ruby red grapefruit from the Orange Shop.

The result is the best citrus we’ve ever had. Sweet, intensely juicy, and deeply fragrant, citrus from the Orange Shop is utterly different than supermarket fruit. Only four days off the tree by the time it arrives at your door, this fruit is as close to fresh-picked as you’ll find north of

Our latest obsession: a light, crisp Vinho Verde from the Minho region of Portugal.
