Herbs and spices today. Woo hoo! Trying to avoid the grocery store has forced me to get creative with our food shopping. Thrive Market and Savory Spice Shop have been great places to order spices online. Savory Spice Shop is a small Colorado based business. Coincidentally, I’ve been to one of their Colorado locations. One of my best childhood friends now lives in Colorado, and she brought me to Savory Spice Shop when I visited her a few years ago. So, I’ve been ordering spices from there and Thrive Market.
What are my staples? Most are pretty common, but there are a few surprises. In the spice cabinet, you will find garlic powder, onion powder, table salt, coarse sea salt, black pepper, white pepper, paprika, smoked paprika, ginger powder, oregano, thyme, and bay leaves. (There are others, but I don’t use them often.) Although they are not herbs or spices, you will also find vanilla extract and raw blue agave in the spice cabinet. Did you find a few surprises in there? Let’s discuss.
The garlic powder, onion powder, table salt, black pepper, paprika, oregano, vanilla extract, and thyme are pretty well known. If you have any questions about where to find them or what they can be used for, ask me!
What are your spice and herb staples? I’m always looking for more ideas.
