.Natural Nick's Fruit Conserve

Fruit "Conserve" is a centuries old method for preserving fruit. Known as Conserve in England and Western Europe, also known as Varenye throughout Eastern Europe and Russia.

After World War 2, Pectin came into wide use in Jams, Jellies and Preserves. Pectin is a thickening agent commonly made from apples and has a neutral taste. This detracts from the potential full/big fruit flavor. True Fruit Conserve is made with only fruit, sugar, fresh lemon juice and the pith of the Lemon.

Use of the pith from citrus (such as lemon) is far superior to powdered pectin. The citrus pith greatly enhances the fruit flavor and adds natural vitamin C.

Proper cooking extracts the natural pectin in the fruit and lemon pith, which then thickens naturally. Conserve is not as stiff as modern jams, jellies and preserves.

Natural Nick's Conserve flavors are available as Adriano Fig Conserve, Blackberry Conserve, Strawberry Conserve and Threeberry Conserve, which is a combination of Blackberry, Blueberry and Raspberry.


Natural Nick's Fruit Conserve has a big fruit flavor and is delicious when spooned over Yogurt, Ice Cream, Pancakes or Waffles.  Also an excellent base for a fruit flavored vinaigrette.  Mix Natural Nick's Fruit Conserves in Smoothies or make Nick's Nectar, a very refreshing Summertime or anytime drink.

Natural Nick's L'Erba Italiano

"L'Erba Italiano" is a blended Italian Seasoning by Natural Nick's Produce.

Most commercial spice blends contain an enormous amount of Sodium. This is extremely unhealthy and limiting, in that you do not have control of the salt content in your preparations.

Natural Nick has blended spices typical of fine Italian Cuisine, using NO salt. This gives the Chef complete control of how much salt to use in the preparation of a dish. Resulting in a balanced authentic Italian seasoning, which you may use liberally to your taste.

This exceptional blend of top quality Organic spices is best when used during the marinating or cooking process of Vegetables, Meats, Stews, Soups, Sauces, Bruschetta or as a Pizza seasoning prior to baking.

Infused with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and salt to your taste will produce an excellent dipping oil or as a seasoning for Croutons or Crostini topped with your choice of antipasto.

Natural Nick's Born On The Bayou

"Born On The Bayou" is a Cajun Seasoning by Natural Nick's Produce.

Many years ago, Natural Nick grew disheartened with the enormous sodium content in most blackening spices. We set out to blend our own blackening spice blend that would have a big flavor without the excessive amount of sodium found on store shelves. The result is a balanced blend of spices typical of Cajun Cuisine, with a medium amount of "heat", that can be used liberally to your taste.

Many commercial blackening spice blends contain between 100 and 300mg of Sodium per 1/4 teaspoon! Commercial brands are mostly salt! Natural Nick's Born On The Bayou seasoning contains less than 13mg of sodium per serving!

This savory blend is not only excellent on seafood and meats but also makes an excellent seasoning for many vegetables. Use Born On The Bayou as a topping on burgers, appetizers, blended into sour cream, cream cheese or hummus spreads. Use as a Chili spice or added zest to soup and stew. Born On The Bayou is an excellent addition when sprinkled onto sandwiches and as a finish your Deviled Eggs instead of Paprika.
