Nannyberry leaves have an incredibly rich fragrance, reminiscent of violets, with delicate woody notes. They are harvested in the fall, then dried, before removing the stems in order to preserve the intensity of their floral aromas. Dried Nannyberry can be used, in small quantities, to enrich desserts such as meringues, rice puddings and desserts containing honey and nuts. Great when used to flavour black tea or shortbread cookies.
Our Nannyberry is grown in Québec’s boreal forests, just north of Lac St-Jean, in semi-wild patches designed to maximize flavor after the harvest.
This spice is part of our foraged boreal spice collection (épices boréales).
