Pickled Spruce Tips
Our Island-foraged pickled Sitka spruce tips are a unique and irresistibly zesty delicacy. Reminiscent of capers, our pickled tips add a tangy burst of fresh, woodsy flavour to any dish. The soft, electric-green buds on the tip of every spruce branch are taste bud-surprising treats rich in both nutrition and flavour.
THE DIVINE TASTE AND NOURISHMENT OF SPRUCE TIPS
Exceptionally high in vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium, Sitka spruce tips have been used as medicine and sustenance for thousands of years. If you’ve never tried pickled spruce tips, you’re in for a unique treat — they’re almost like lemony capers and add a tangy burst of flavour to any dish.
We love their refreshing citrusy flavour that has just a touch of woodsiness. Whether dried, pickled, jellied, or frozen, spruce tips add exceptional flavour when you use them in savoury or sweet baking, salads, cocktails, and teas.
