A new trend among chefs and recipe developers are herb crystals and flower crystals. The crystals color, flavor and texture to dishes and desserts. Fresh Origins sent me sample of their Herb Crystals (available in Basil, Mint, and Cilantro) and Flower Crystals (available in Fennel, Rose, and Hibiscus)and I really like them. Famed pastry chef Johnny Iuzzuni uses them in some of his desserts.
I sprinkled some mint crystals on top of chocolate buttercream frosting and it was delicious.
