January features The Icelandic Flavour Kit! 
This month’s box is a tribute to Iceland, the land of Vikings, heroic sagas, and extreme environmental contrasts. Therefore, a culinary heritage of striking flavors is not (that) surprising. It is during their coffee break, Kaffi, that the Icelandic indulge in glutenous sweets such as gingerbread, Piparkökur, or pastries. Kaffi is considered an essential part of the day to socialize and indulge in the moment. Due to its coastal nature, dishes such as fermented shark or grilled puffin are specialties, but not necessities, with many Icelanders opting stick with warmer flavors. With comforting spices like Fjórir Krydd, a dish wakes up like a dark winter forgotten under summer’s midnight sun. And with strong people, come strong spices. Black licorice, lakkrís, as with the rest of Scandinavia, is found everywhere, from the candy to the liquor to the salt. Iceland has taken salted licorice a step further and added a layer of chocolate. It is unique and highly addictive. Skål! (That’s the Icelandic cheers.)
The spices this month are very interesting! Licorice salt? Yum! To go with these blends, there are six recipes included this month, plus several more on the website!

Quatre Epices Cake
This is a take on a spice cake, and it's flavoured with coffee too!

Quatre Epices Honey Roast Pork
This slow roasted pork shoulder would be great for a special family dinner.

This granola is a blend of oats and nuts. It's sweetened with maple syrup and molasses. 

I'm most excited about this recipe. It's almost like cinnamon buns but they are stuffed with blueberries!

Licorice Almond Milk Latte
With the licorice salt, you can make a salted latte with almond milk. You need an espresso machine though.

Licorice Chocolate Almonds
This is a pretty simple recipe where you take roasted almonds and coat them in chocolate, then sprinkle with the licorice salt.

The December Icelandic Flavor Kit included three spices and about a dozen different recipes. There are lots of options, including several vegetarian dishes.
