I can't thank you all enough for putting on your thinking caps and sharing your best tips. I really enjoy reading (and re-reading) them.
Due to popular demand :) I'll repost a few of the herb-related tips, but if you think of anything... any tip at all, please add it to the list. I guarantee it'll be of use to many.
My first tip is to fry seed spices (cumin, coriander, cardamom, etc) in a cast iron pan (don't add any oil) for just a minute or two, until they start popping and are fragrent, then grind them. They'll be much more flavorful.
For those who don't want to re-read tips from the previous posts, just scroll down the comments until you don't see the Marvel image any more (plus I've tried to keep them in order).
For first-timers, there are previous posts with all kind of tips. (Just click on archives.)
I'll continue to collect these and work on organizing them, once I get back to where I can use a computer for more than a few minutes a day.... hopefully in a couple more weeks.
Keep those cards and letters (and tips) coming!
All the best,
Have Spices Will Travel
