We will have all the favorite Bunny Biscotti flavors: Carrot & Fennel, Carrot & Raisin, Banana, Floral Bouquet, Pineapple & Mint, Beet & Mint, and our four berry and apple flavors: Strawberry & Mint, Blackberry & Mint, Cranberry & Mint, and Blueberry & Mint. We also will have double the number of the popular Variety Boxes that we had last year.
We are happy to announce that we will resume production of Floral Biscotti later this month and that we have added a new flower, Hibiscus. Hibiscus has become a favorite in herbal teas the last few years, but has deep cultural roots all over the world. Below are a few pictures of this lovely flower, of which there are hundreds of hybrids.
Each Bunny Biscotti batch we make, we seem to discover something new about making our treats. Since each batch is made by hand, we’ll experiment with the methods, although the ingredients always stay the same. For example, with our own summer fennel sprouting in our gardens, we add fresh green fennel fronds to the mix instead of the ground fennel bulb we add in the winter. Or last night we discovered that juiced beets provide better color than pureed beets. It tastes the same, or so Tilbert and Violet seem to say, but we think you’ll appreciate the extra steps it takes to produce the more vivid color.
And despite having molds made for smaller treats, we have decided to return to our original shape, the biscotti, or to be proper, the Italian cantucci. The hay stems, panicles, and leaves can remain longer, there is less chafe during shipping, and are much faster to produce. The other shapes will be available by special order.
Each batch of our handcrafted Flower Garden Bunny Biscotti begins with over 3 quarts of dried flowers, including roses, calendula, chamomile, and lavender. With just a bit of fresh apple, they are perhaps the least sweet of the Bunny Biscotti line, but they are the most fragrant. The entire line of Bunny Biscotti is now available at BunnyBytes. Be sure to tell them Violet sent you! Click here to learn more about Bunny Biscotti.
