Himalayan salt block (and how to use it)
A fun addition to any foodie arsenal, the Himalayan salt block has more uses than we can count, so you’ll want to pick up a copy of Salt Block Cooking while you’re at it. You can use it to cook or chill your favorite dishes—and each block is stunningly hued, by the way, making it a perfect display surface for any occasion. Brick, $36.95, and Salt Block Cooking cookbook, $24.99, at Savory Spice Shop
Local clover honey
Oh, honey. Allergies got you down? A little local honey in your morning tea couldn’t hurt! The sweet varieties available at the impossibly cute Early’s Honey Stand range in flavor and hue, but it’s plenty of fun trying to find your favorite. [SB Tip: they’ve started serving up an occasional batch of homemade chocolate-covered bacon. Be sure to ask next time you stop by.] $4.99 for 8-ounce bottles at Early’s Honey Stand
