The Spice Thread

Condiments, 'erbs (#dope ) and Gerri Halliwell pics need not apply.

Cinnamon



I was reading a post on another forum from an expat Brit living in the U.S. who lamented Americans' excessive use of this spice. He claims that where he comes from, the spice is used very conservatively and appeals to a more refined palate while places in the New World like Cinnabon® produce vomit inducing inedibles. I'm not in airports enough to be able to comment on this opinion.

I'm partial to Brown Sugar/Cinnamon Pop Tarts, myself.

Cinnamon is one of my favorites. Another is summer savory.

I like nutmeg - and lots of it!

Cinnamon is good for you, and people should generally eat more - especially whiny little ex-pats.

Yes, big fan of cloves. My granny used to make apple pie, loaded with them.

(BTW, I finally have a stock of Tom's of Maine clove toothpaste)

A bit of clove is great in tomato-based dishes such as spaghetti, chili, and picadillo.

A great use of nutmeg is when you've got some cheap scotch you need to make palatable. Mix the scotch in a blender with (good) vanilla ice cream, sprinkle with nutmeg. Better than eggnog.

I am picky about mint. Only mint above dog leg height gets used out of my garden.

Weird. I was going to post this place a while back but I thought that nobody would give a damn. Merchants of Exquisite Spices, Herbs and Seasonings | Chicago | Milwaukee | Evanston | Geneva

Place is amazing. All they have is spices and you can smell the place 2 blocks away. All they have is displays on the shelf. You have to go to the clerk and he weighs, grinds,bottles and prints out the bottle label. I walked in looking for Hungarian paprika and walked out with a shopping bag full and had to build 3 new spice racks. I have 7 types of salt from the Baltic region only.
