Versatile Grinder Blends, Essential for Any and All Spice Collections
A great project to add to your spring-cleaning routine this year is cleaning out and organizing your spice cabinet! Freshening up your spice cabinet will allow you to explore new flavors and recipes to jazz-up all your meals this season.
There are two easy steps to starting this project. First, it is important to establish when your spices and dried herbs have gone bad. When your herbs or spices start to clump together and lose their smell, it’s time to let them go. Second, it is essential to assess when spices no longer fit into your flavor palate. Getting rid of expired spices or spices that you don’t use quite enough will make room for our large variety of spice combinations. Once you’ve made some space, it is fun to find new flavors and spices to try! Trending spices and herbs are a good place to start when you are uncertain which ones to try for the first time.
