Lavender Sea Salt Caramels
When Martha Stewart was finalizing her Christmas gift list last year, she decided to go organic, choosing Lavender Sea Salt Caramels from Central Point, Oregon-based Lillie Belle Farms Hand Made Chocolates. The artisan chocolate maker supplied more than 250 lbs. of handmade lavender-infused confections.
“With all the chocolate companies out there, it was quite an honor to have someone whose entire business is centered on taste and style to choose our products as their holiday gift,” says chocolatier Jeff Shepherd. “We make each small batch by hand, using lavender from our garden, fresh Oregon cream, organic dark chocolate and a little sprinkle of Fleur du Sel from the coast of Brittany.”
The company combines fruits and flowers from its organic berry farm in Southern Oregon with the finest organic single-origin chocolate to craft decadent ganaches, toffees, bonbons and caramels.
“A year ago, we would not have been able to fulfill her order in a timely manner, but since we built our new kitchen, we were able to accommodate Martha and several other high-profile clients,” Shepherd says.
