This honey has notably full aromas, and flavors that blend beautifully with the natural ingredients from São Bartolomeu, Portugal. The pears are harvested and dried - transforming the fresh pear into the ‘passa’ pear. A wonderful addition to Bruschetta, seafood, ice cream or a cup of tea.
Homemade Kiwi Jam - Casa de Juste
This gourmet jam is produced from a traditional recipe with 100% natural, home-grown Kiwis. Each bite makes for a fantastic flavor experience. Pair it with goat cheese, lobster, meats or as a topping for scones or crackers.
Mushrooms in Olive Oil - Casa de Juste
A Portuguese specialty combining Mediterranean flavors of extra-virgin olive oil, Agaricus bisporus button mushrooms, garlic, black pepper and herbs. Prepared with devotion and high standards, enjoy these as an appetizer or with your main course. Store in a cool place away from light.
Dark Chocolate with Raisins & Brandy - Boa Boca
Dark chocolate with raisins soaked in rum. . .yum! The cocoa from the São Tomé and Príncipe islands has unique and intense flavors that are carefully transformed into pure, decadent chocolate. Savor the quality of this handmade treat as a snack, dessert, or with a glass of wine.
Spicy Roasted Peanuts - Boa Boca
Warning: these spicy peanuts will disappear quickly! Lightly salted and then roasted with authentic Portuguese piri-piri hot sauce gives these peanuts an invigorating punch of flavor. Ideal as an hors d’oeuvre or snack throughout the day.
Tomato Jam - O Melhor do Ribatejo
Handmade with 100% Ribatejo grown tomatoes, this savory jam combines the finest raw ingredients with an age-old recipe. Skilled hands turn baskets of red, juicy tomatoes into the delectable, gourmet spread before you. Serve with cured goat cheese, chicken or on fresh bread.
Flavored Salts - O Melhor do Ribatejo
The Rio Maior saltern is millions of years old and is deemed one of the greatest treasures of Ribatejo. An ancient well, fed by an underground river is 7x saltier than the Sea. Using the same time-honored methods, the salt is extracted and mixed with Vale da Trave herbs. A flavor enhancer for meat, fish, rice and even salads.
