CHOWARD'S was started by Charles Howard, of New York City in the early 1930's. Mr. Howard, in search for a "unique and different flavored candy," concocted a delightful confectionary mint called, "Choward's Violet," in a small industrial loft on Broadway in New York City. His first retailing experience was selling "Choward's Violet" on the street corners in Manhattan, where the product's reputation grew. In years to come, Charles Howard expanded his candy line to include Choward's Peppermints, Spearmints, and Lemon Mints. Upon the passing of Mr. Howard, the company carried on under the leadership of Elizabeth Juhase, a long time valued employee. In the 1970's, Elizabeth enlisted the help of her nephews, who to this day operate the company as a family.
Violet: A floral flavor and fragrance, which makes for a very unique candy experience.
Spearmint: A strong fragrance with a zestful and long lasting flavor.
Peppermint: Real oil of peppermint to produce a strong mint with a smooth taste.

by Karen Morgan of the Blackbird Bakery with photographs by Knoxy Knox
In her second cookbook, Blackbird Bakery’s Karen Morgan tackles the fundamental secrets to gluten-free delicious recipes: the six flour blends and getting them right. The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free is divided by flour blends—Biscuit, Donut and Fritter, Pie and Pasta, Bread and Pizza, Cake and Muffin, and Cookie Jar—with each chapter offering easy-to-follow recipes that demonstrate the versatility of blends and debunk the notion of an “all-purpose” flour. Morgan transforms more than 100 favorite comfort foods into gluten-free delights, including jelly donuts, chicken and dumplings, red velvet cupcakes, challah, and more. These treats boast the same taste, texture, and appearance as their gluten-based inspiration, and some—like the lemon-raspberry pop tart—are even better than the original. Packed with more than 100 photographs, The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free empowers its readers to make virtually any recipe into a delicious, gluten-free version.
