You're probably asking "What are fleur spiced shortcakes!?" Well, I will TELL you!
They are shortcakes mixed with a flower-filled spice blend of pink pepper, hibiscus, lavender & rose made by Curio Spice Co's Fleur Spice from Boston General Store.
While this spice blend can be used in both sweet + savory dishes, strawberries are one of the recommended fruits to use, so I knew I had to do strawberry shortcakes. I decided to go with the classic biscuit-style strawberry shortcakes that are portioned individually, because...biscuits. The flaky, buttery biscuit and the sweet whipped cream compliment the fleur spiced strawberries perfectly.
Using a mortar & pestle I mixed cane sugar with the spice blend & ground it down to a very fine powder. I wanted the cane sugar to really be incorporated into the spice & for the strawberries to essentially marinate in the mix.

Here at Boston General Store, we love spending time outdoors this time of year. The New England landscapes have so much to offer when it comes to outdoor activities, especially camping and hiking, and we like to take full advantage of that.
Today, some folks are opting for an upgraded kind of camping experience, called glamping, and while we understand lengthy stays out in the wild aren't everyone’s style, we definitely prefer to keep our excursions a little more unpolished. But, that also doesn’t mean we like heading into the woods empty handed.
We take what we need to get by and leave all the rest at home.
People who've followed along on our journey know how important makers are to Boston General Store.
When the shop first launched online, the idea was to create a small assortment of products from around the world featuring craftsmen who truly cared about their trade. Today, four years after opening the business, we still carry almost all of the items from that original collection, speaking to the significance these makers have had in the continued success of BGS.
