Shaker Culinary Herbs: Calendula (formerly Marigold)
This cheery calendula (we formerly called it "magical marigold") is packaged in metal tins by the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Community in New Gloucester, Maine. They first began selling herbs in 1799. Known as "Poor Man's Saffron," calendula petals are bright yellow and orange to add color and taste to salads, rice, soups and salads. Also a nice inclusion in papermaking! .3 ounces.
The Sabbathday Lake Shakers' herbs are grown in gardens more than 200 years old, dried in a facility built in 1845, and packaged in tin canisters just like their forebears throughout the 1800s. Established in 1783, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is the only active Shaker Community in the world. It is America's oldest religious Community.
