Here’s something I’ve been hunting down for quite awhile now: High quality organic spices. I’ve seen organic spices in the supermarkets, and since spices can be so costly, I wasn’t willing to fork over my dough for just anything, especially if it’s been sitting on the store shelf for a long time. But upon discovering and being able to cook with Smith & Truslow, I’m confident I found the right stuff!
Smith & Truslow is not only organic, it’s ground fresh with the expiration date clearly placed on the packaging so the spices never lose their intensity. I know, I know. If you’re like me, you have spices sitting in the cupboard that you probably got as a wedding gift. (Mom, are you nodding your head? She gets the A+ for antique spice collection of the year! But I cut her some slack because she grows her own too.) But believe me, when you taste freshly ground organic spices, you’ll dump out all that old stuff in a heartbeat!
I tried the dill and ground yellow mustard in my potato salad, and it really tastes fresh! A very noticeable difference. And maybe you’ve read my recipe for homemade vanilla extract here before. The beans I usually buy are kind of tough because they probably sat around awhile before I got to them, but these are so soft and smell wonderful! Also impressive is Smith & Truslow’s oregano. I grew my own last year, and this is surprisingly similar in taste to what came out of my garden.
Here’s the best part of all: Smith & Truslow put together a custom box of nine 1-ounce jars of their most popular herbs and spices just for dkMommy Spot! One of you will win an attractively packaged $54 box full of cooking goodies. Here’s what I have waiting for you: Ground Cinnamon, Ground Ginger, Ground Cayenne, Curry Powder, Lemon Peel, Granulated Garlic, Granulated Onion, Ground Cumin, and Tarragon. Doesn’t that just make you want to break out your favorite recipes to see if they taste even better?
