Last Fall, we stumbled upon Simple & Crisp’s Dried Fruit Crisps while visiting a local cocktail specialty store. We had been on a search for the perfect garnish to add to our cocktail kits and we felt like we had hit the jackpot! Simple & Crisp was everything we were looking for in a product: taste, beauty and a company with the belief in responsible, ethical and honest agricultural practices.
Jane Yuan, the founder of Simple & Crisp, is the creator of these little slices of perfection and is in constant watch over her fruit’s growing seasons. She hand selects the fruit for optimal sizing, sweetness, ripeness and flavor so there is no need to add complicated ingredients before drying.
Jane’s story is simple and derives from the love and passion for entertaining and hosting dinner parties. She first served her homemade dried fruit crisps as crackers as a unique way to pair cheese. She then began experimenting and adding them to cocktails and desserts – not only were they naturally gluten-free, antioxidant-rich and tasty, they were also beautiful. It was a hit with friends and the aha moment was born – in November 2012, Jane set on the journey to create the most elegant dried fruit, inspired by the beauty of nature. The highlight of simplicity of what mother nature created,orchard to table, it’s as simple as that!
Simple & Crisp’s mission is to make food fun, colorful, healthy and simple while creating an inspiring centerpiece that brings people together. That mantra is exactly why Simple & Crisp is the perfect fit for our Twist Your Spirts Cocktail Kits. Simple & Crisp's dried orange slices are the ideal garnish for our Chile Spiced Old Fashioned and our Emotional Rescue Tequila Cocktail would certainly not be complete without Simple & Crisp’s Dried Pear Slices.
