“An herb garden in your freezer”
As summer wanes and fall approaches, those fresh garden herbs we love sadly disappear. Yes, we’ve likely frozen some, but never enough to last through the long, cold winter. That’s just the reason we are now devoted fans of Darégal, OU kosher certified fresh frozen herbs
Darégal has been at the forefront of herbs in France since 1887. Five generations and more than 120 years later, the Darbonne family is still proud to own and operate Darégal. and has recently introduced an innovation for the home or professional cook. Their ready-to-use frozen chopped herbs can go directly from the freezer into any soup, sauce, salad, or spread, no thawing necessary. Simply remove the container from the freezer, give a little shake to loosen the chopped herbs, and sprinkle out the desired amount.
KosherEye has used and still uses other brands of frozen herbs, and they are certainly very helpful. The difference is that these herbs are pure—no slat, oils or additives.
They are washed, chopped, and packaged in easy to use shake and store containers, and have a long shelf life.
Kosher certified varieties include Basil, Parsley, Cilantro, Garlic
- Processed hours after harvest to preserve flavor and nutrients
- Washed, chopped and ready to use
- No salt, oil or preservatives
- OU kosher certified

KosherEye has recently sampled several new honey varieties from Savannah Bee Company. These are quite unique and perfect for gifting others or treating yourself as we approach the New Year. This honey will certainly make it sweeter!
First a brief word about honey from Savannah Bee:
“Honey is like a fine wine that is created from flowers instead of grapes. The term "varietal honey" refers to the honey gathered from a single type of blossom. Each type of nectar has its own flavor and sugar composition depending on the flower that produces it, therefore the honey reflects the unique taste of the bloom. Savannah Bee Company is the leader in honey purity standards.”
Lavender Honey is among the most prized varietals of honey. The wild lavender honey is sourced from remote mountains in Southern Spain, and harvested in late spring and early summer. This premium honey has a faint, floral aroma, and a subtle, delicate fruity finish. Its light slightly purple color provides a gentle flavor, and it is lovely in mild tea and as a sugar substitute in baking.
Savannah Bee Rosemary Honey is one of their most intricate and complex honey varieties. With origins in Spain, its fresh, woodsy aroma gives way to a delicately soft sweetness. This rosemary honey is produced in a remote natural setting and is a product of wild growing Rosemary plants. Pair this premium honey with robust dishes like chicken, and lamb for a noticeably herbal flavor and distinct sweetness.
Drumroll please: Orange Blossom Honeycomb
Orange Blossom honeycomb is a rare treat available only once every four or five years. Orange Blossom honeycomb is only harvested when the Orange Blossom honey crop is abundant, like this year. During low-yield years, all Orange Blossom honey is extracted from the comb and sold in its liquid form. 2016, however, was a great year for Orange Blossom honey and the honeycomb is currently available.
All of the Savannah Bee Honeys are 100% pure and KSA certified.Add a comment
The “Snack Artist” for Goodie Girl cookies is founder Shira Berk. In 2010, k, She was known by friends as a talented, but untrained baker, and spent much time running the café inside her children’s preschool. A fellow parent challenged her to create a good tasting gluten free cookie. And, wow, has she succeeded. In her words, she has created insanely delicious good for you goodies.”junk food without the junk!”;
The former New York City-based punk rock music-marketing exec created a fun and delicious gluten-free cookie line, certified OU-D kosher. Berk, who lost 80 lbs. nearly 10 years ago, (and has maintained an ideal weight every since) says her favorite flavor is the original gluten-free Quinoa Chocolate Chunk. Their slogan –“Goodness never tasted so wrong”. The cookies are low in calories and made with wholesome ingredients. The entire line is gluten-free.
Our favorite flavors of those we have tasted so far…Definitely the oatmeal raisin cookie for breakfast with our coffee of course, and the chocolate dipped mint slims, a yummy dessert – with only 40 calories per cookie. No these are not health foods, but almost.
Other flavors we will be adding to our future tastings: toffee chaos, midnight brownie, vanilla slims and cocoa slims.

Hoboken Farms Big Tomato Sauce
What can we say about a jarred sauce that tastes as good as our homemade version? Only that we were surprised and delighted! Hoboken Farms is kosher certified by the Kof-k and currently available in 3 flavors – Big Red Marinara, Big Boss Vodka and Big Basil Tomato Basil.
Our first hint that the sauce was exceptional was when we checked the ingredients. In our mind, less is better. And, we like to see ingredients that reflect real food, not chemicals or additives. The ingredients listed on the label of Big Marinara (our favorite) are Whole Tomatoes, Olive Oil, Fresh onion, basil, garlic and spices. That’s it!
No preservative; no additives, all natural. Yumm.
From CEO and founder Brad Finkel: My grandmother made a really good sauce,” “but mine is much better.” The secret to Finkel’s successful sauce? Really great tomatoes. “We look for sugar content and acidity balance,” he says, “That makes it taste great.” He uses New Jersey tomatoes when they’re in season and California tomatoes when Jerseys aren’t. Finkel explains that his Big Red Marinara occasionally is unavailable when he’s had to send tomatoes back that don’t meet his standards, saying, “We work so hard to build our reputation, we’re not going to ruin it with half-ass tomatoes.”…
Big Red Marinara is sold at Whole Foods Market, Bed Bath and Beyond, and independent retail shops across the U.S. The sauce was named Best Marinara Sauce in the country by the Wall Street Journal In 2011, The mission of Hoboken Farms is to delight the customer and serve its employees and community. They absolutely did delight this kosher foodie!
