~"Spice is Nice"~

Today I thought I would share some spice Knowledge.
I will try to post a different spice daily in "Spice is Nice" You will find a new spice or herb listed in my posts.

Let's start with ALLSPICE

Allspice is dried spice berries slightly larger than peppercorns. TASTES:
of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg: hence the name.
in several forms:
Dried whole berries, ground and oil. Grind in a peppermill.
West Indies, Jamaica
Excellent in cakes, cookies, pies, breads, steamed puddings,barbeque sauces,catsups, pickles, sausage, pate's, corned beef, soups, meats, vegetables, fruit pies and French toast.. Good whole for pickling and marinating and in stews, casseroles sausages,& curries.

 It has been suggested   Whenever possible buy whole spices in small quantities and grind them yourself with a spice grinder, pepper mill or  mortar & pestle . Store them in a cool dark place.  I hope you will try some new spices in your cooking adventures.
Bon Appetite!
