Artisanal Provisions: Five Fall Must-Haves

Share this Post

Small crops crafted with care. Fresh and non- or minimally processed. These are attributes of the artisan food making process and qualities of all our Artisanal Provisions products. In this article, in-house specialist Roland Ulrich brings you his top five selections that will elevate your plates with fall food trends.

Bourbon Barrel aged Maple Syrup

Produced in small batches from their sustainable forest in Ohio, Milligan’s Maple Syrup crafted from maple sap to pure maple syrup, with no added ingredients. Family owned and operated, Milligan’s is also one of the few companies in Ohio who offer a Kentucky bourbon barrel aged maple syrup. Aged 6-9 months, the syrup blends the unique flavor of pure maple syrup with the rich oaky flavor and vanilla from bourbon barrels. This sweet addition is ready for any task – perfect any breakfast food, use it as a glaze for cooking, or drizzle on ice cream, Gelato, Bread pudding or any other desserts.

Divina Oven Roasted Red Tomatoes Wedges

Divina does it again with two products making the list. First are its ripe-harvested, handpicked tomatoes that are slow roasted at low temperatures to draw out the fruit’s natural sweetness. The proprietary Divina recipe and production process locks in the fresh taste of the tomato year-round, allowing the fruit to maintain its plump texture and juiciness while also providing a consistent and well-rounded flavor.

These Divina Oven Roasted Red Tomatoes are marinated in garlic and herbs, making them a star ingredient from breakfast (in a frittata or quiche) to lunch (with your favorite sandwich & salad) to dinner (with roast chicken or salmon).

Divina Calabrian Chopped Peppers

Next up are Divina Calabrian Chopped Peppers. The Calabrian Chili pepper is a staple in Italian cuisine, and a trending flavor with consumers. It offers a remarkable combination of fruity, spicy, and salty flavors that leave a lasting impression on taste buds. Its versatility as an ingredient is demonstrated in its inclusion in pasta sauces, seasonal soups and on pizza as well as a great addition to sandwiches and salads to take flavor up a notch. 

Casa Martinez Salsa

Casa Martinez salsas hail from the fertile region of Sinaloan, Mexico, where the Martinez family has spent more than a century mastering Mexican culinary arts and handcrafted salsas. This woman- and minority-owned family business has a love for salsa making that begins with the joy of freshly hand-picked tomatoes and vegetables. The salsas are then made with these fresh vegetables that have no preservatives, artificial colors or sugar added. They are also free of gluten, allergens and lactose as well as being shelf stable. Varieties include Salsa Roja, Salsa Habanero, Salsa Verde and Salsa Chipotle.

Collier’s Powerful Welsh Cheddar

The Collier’s brand is committed to delivering the finest cheddar cheese with a distinctive and powerful taste. They’ve certainly accomplished that with Collier’s Powerful Welsh Cheddar. This delicious and unique premium cheddar produced in Wales is carefully matured to yield incredible taste. Salt deposits can be seen on the surface of the cheese, which contributes to product character and is indicative of the product’s age and high quality. This cheddar is wonderful on meat and cheese boards, salads, and burgers.
