Cooking with fresh herbs and spices
Cooking without herbs and spices is impossible. It’s the smell, colour and taste that makes a delicious dish. Bonus points: they’re packed with valuable vitamins and minerals. Did you know that some of them even contain larger amounts of antioxidants than fruit and vegetables? No surprise they boost your immune system. Some are even attributed with medicinal powers. Really powerful stuff! Not just for the kitchen, but also for your body.
Herbs or spices: do you know the difference?
The words herbs and spices are often mixed up. Let’s straighten that out. Herbs are the leaves and stems of green plants that grow in moderately warm regions. Like basil and oregano. Spices come from tropical crops and include seeds, flower buds, stamens or roots.
How to store herbs and spices longterm
Our herbs and spices come in a wide variety of packaging sizes. Varying from 50 grams to 25 kilos. Convenient to have such a huge stock of your favourite tastemakers but how to store them properly? Always keep them tightly closed in a dark place. Whole herbs and spices have a longer shelf life than the ground varieties. Those can still be kept for a long time, but start to lose taste after six months. Prefer to order more often in smaller quantities? Then we offer handy resealable bags and hand-held jars. Get them today in our online shop and start using them tomorrow.
