Tart and colorful, use Cranberry Powder to add a hit of acid to your baked goods, dust it on top of panna cotta, cheesecakes, and frosted treats. Or, dilute with a little bit of rosewater and use on your lips and cheeks as an all natural blush.

"On a recent trip to SOS Chefs, I was introduced to the world of powders by Atef. Looking at the beautiful multicolored wall of flavor, she would scoop a bit of powder and dump it on the back of my hand for me to taste. Time after time, my taste buds would explode the second my tongue touched the micro crystals. Certain ones made sense to me off the bat; Carob Powder, Cheddar Powder, Garlic Powder, all recognizable. But when I saw the Balsamic Vinegar and Cider Vinegar Powders I began to realize the value that these unique ingredients can provide me on wood fired pizza. Whether it’s a little Balsamic Powder sprinkled on top of a finished maitake mushroom pie, or the Cheddar Powder on the base of plain pie for the hidden extra flavor, these powders can be utilized in so many different ways and I’m eager to continue exploring how they can influence my way of thinking in the kitchen. I truly love the way they add so much without really adding much at all."
