CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Cocina del Mundo Herbs & Spices Review & Giveaway!!

 

 

I’ve always been a spice kinda girl. I love most all spices, and they cer­tainly make food taste won­der­ful, what­ever you may be cook­ing! A lit­tle bitta’ this and a lit­tle bitta’ that is usu­ally my idea of cook­ing and/or bak­ing — and I throw in just enough to sat­isfy the tempt­ing taste­bud. I’ve always got a cup­board chock right full of assorted spices, and on hand at all times when needed.

It is really hard to imag­ine what cook­ing or bak­ing would be like with­out the unique fla­vors pro­vided by herbs, spices, and the many sea­son­ings available.

For cen­turies Herbs and Spices have been an inte­gral part of many of the world’s great cuisines. Today we take for granted black pep­per and the other spices over which wars where once fought. At one time only kings and other wealthy peo­ple could afford such a del­i­cacy as cin­na­mon. Today all super­mar­kets and most small gro­cery stores have well-stocked spice shelves offer­ing an enor­mous selec­tion of mostly all herbs and spices.

The term “spices” is often used broadly to include all sea­son­ings. Spices come from the bark, roots, leaves, stems, buds, seeds, or fruit of aro­matic plants and trees which usu­ally grow only in trop­i­cal coun­tries. Pep­per, all­spice, cloves, nut­meg, mace, cin­na­mon, gin­ger, saf­fron, and turmeric are spices.

Herbs are soft, suc­cu­lent plants which usu­ally grow in the tem­per­ate zone. Until recently cooks have had to make do with very few fresh herbs, such as sage, pars­ley, and thyme. Nowa­days you can also find fresh basil, corian­der, oregano, tar­ragon, rose­mary, and dill.
