Sprinkle something special in your dishes…Spices! Herbs and spices are a great way to add variety to your everyday routine. Each one of our locations carries a variety of Certified Organic spices. Did you know our Kimberton location carries over 100 Certified Organic bulk spices?
We’ve picked a few flavors to try in February:
Caraway Seed – Carum carvi
One of the modern world’s most widely used seeds, caraway has probably been cultivated and consumed in Europe longer than any other spice. Enjoy its distinctive taste in breads, biscuits and cookies, or in salads and other vegetable dishes
Paprika – Capsicum annuum, Capsicum annuum var. annuum
A sweet but sassy relative of the chili pepper, paprika is used to add warm, natural color and mildly spicy flavor to soups, and stews.
Sage Leaf – Salvia officinalis
Used for centuries as both a seasoning and as a healing herb, sage has a highly penetrating, piney, woodsy fragrance and warm, piney, earthy flavor. A traditional accompaniment for robust meats, breads, rolls and stuffing, sage also makes a warming winter teas, and a variety of hors d’ouvres.
Cayenne – Capsicum annuum, Capsicum annuum var. annuum
This colorful, ground chili pepper will turn up the heat and color in your cooking. Use it in favorite ethnic recipes, or sprinkle it on at the table whenever a dish needs extra zip.
Nutmeg – Myristica fragrans, Myristica fragrans Houtt
Nutmeg is the dried seed of the fruit of an evergreen. Warm and sweet, nutmeg adds depth to desserts and savory dishes alike. Sprinkle it on your eggnog, but try it on your potatoes, too!
