Pipers Crisp Co Atlas Mountains Wild Thyme & Rosemary
Anyway, this is a present from the Family Vegetarian (thank you very much!), and doesn't it have a great packaging design? When did you last see a fabulous lilac coloured packet? Me neither.
These crisps are perfectly crisp with a great crunch. And boy are they herby! Extremely thyme-like, not so strong on the rosemary. I'm almost inclined to say they might be a little bit too herby.
The fabulous wild thyme is sourced in the Atlas mountains. The land is divided into parcels and local families bid to collect the herb for 3 years. Each permit holder harvests the herb sustainably, leaving some of the plant to continue growing and collecting only a set amount each week. Says the packet. We don't get told where the rosemary, tomatoes, peppers, basil, oregano, parsley or sage are sourced. It is quite a complicated sounding recipe.
But let's not get too picky. I really did like these a lot. The Chef liked these crisps and Christmas Tree Decorator taste tester said she liked them too. Plus they work extremely well with a dip.
Can't say better than that.
