Notes & Tips
When buying spices, always go for organic and in bulk. Buying organic and in bulk will save you money and will last you for a very long time. Organic spices have less pesticides and contain more nutrients as they are grown with organic practices, natural manures, and compost. Organic spices also carry more flavor and you can definitely taste the difference. Buying organic in bulk online or at bulk spice stores will be cheaper than buying at the supermarket.
Instead of buying ground spices, like grouch ancho chile powder or cumin powder, you can use a coffee grinder or blender and buy whole dried chiles or cumin seeds. Grinding your own spices goes one step further and ensures High-quality aromatics (or ground spices) will take your dishes to the next level. Grinding whole ingredients ensures maximum freshness and quality.
Spices should be packaged in airtight glass containers or tins and stored in dark places, like cabinets or drawers. Never store your spices next to the stove or exposed to much heat and light. .
