TURN UP THE HEAT!

Is it getting hot in here, or is it just your spice rack?

From basic uses, to expert levels, and everything in between, make sure to add a punch of flavor to all your fav dishes.

As we learned from Spice Up Your Life, the perfect “dash of this” or “pinch of that” will liven up recipes that otherwise would be a little lack luster.

 

#BASICS

Where would we be with out our basics? Sea Salt + Parsley are tried and true staples to dress your dishes.

1. Bob’s Red Mill Sea Salt ($2.19)

2. Celtic Sea Salt ($5.00)

3. Fun Fresh Foods Pink Himalayan Sea Salt ($3.48)

 

PARSLEY

2. Simply Organic Parsley ($3.63)

3. Burpee’s Leaved Organic Parsley ($4.95)

 

 

LETS GET SEASONAL, SEASONAL

Baby it’s cold outside, time to swap in some Winter herbs and spices! We rely on Nutmeg + Rosemary to help keep us warm during the upcoming chilly months!

NUTMEG

Nutmeg is often paired with winter root veggie dishes. Use it to dress up sweet potato dishes, butternut squash, and sprinkle atop your PSL.

Brands we swear by:

2. Simply Organic Ground Nutmeg ($6.64)

3. Badia Ground Nutmeg ($2.07)

 

ROSEMARY

Rosemary is an essential herb for your Winter dishes. This seasonal additive is sure to dress your dishes for Winter. If you’re looking to make your home smell like Winter too, rosemary oil emits a pleasant aroma. Get your sniff on!

Brands we swear by:

1. Monterey Bay Spice Company Whole Rosemary ($1.04)

2. Simply Organic Rosemary Whole ($3.97)

3. NOW Essential Oils Rosemary Oil ($5.13)

 

 

LEVEL: EXPERT

Think your a pro? Herbs and spices like Harissa + Pineapple Sage, are lesser known, but when used correctly (operative word, “correctly”), will grant you pro status.

 

HARISSA

Harissa is a spice paste made from chili peppers used in spicy dishes. Depending on your preference for heat, add a little for flavor, or add a lot to breath fire!

Brands we swear by:

1. Frontier Organic Seasoning Harissa ($3.48)

2. Mina Harissa Red Pepper Sauce ($6.29)

3. Dea’s Harissa Hot Sauce ($2.65)

 

PINEAPPLE SAGE*

Pineapple Sage is a great herb to grow yourself! From flavoring teas and cocktails to adding hidden notes of flavor in baking, its unusual sweet and savory flavor will rise to every occasion

*try muddle pineapple sage at the bottom of a cocktail and top with gin or vodka over ice. Cheers!
