While poking around about flavoring oils and extracts this morning, we stumbled upon an intriguing corner of the King Arthur Flour website. It's a slideshow of their favorite secret ingredients when it comes to baking, and some of their choices might surprise you!
That cherry concentrate was the first thing to catch our eye. It sounds perfect for adding pink color and a subtle cherry flavor to frostings and batches of ice cream. We also wonder how it would do diluted in a bit of sparkling water for a spring spritzer.
Also intriguing is their Vermont cheese powder. Maybe we can finally devise a homemade version of instant mac n' cheese!
Take a peek at their whole collection of "secret ingredients":
