Food Blog: My Herbs and Spices cupboard...
Saturday, November 17, 2012
Ok, so I was asked what I use for cooking.
soooo.... here it is!
First picture is the whole cupboard, top shelf has a few canned things for cooking, like the jack fruit or tofu, some liquid marinades, some Turkish stuffed things and gravy mixes.
Second picture is close up of the lower two shelves of things.... lots of wonderful stuff!
I buy a lot of spices from the relevant ethnicity's stores hence them being decanted into various recycled jars as they often just come in big bags.... like the giant bags of fennel seed and dried chillies!
I have whole and ground versions of some things like cumin and coriander, I have some spice mixes, but more often I make my own blends.
Bottles are things like palm vinegar, various kinds of oils (walnut, hazelnut, chipotle, sesame) soy sauce, hot sauces, pomegranate molasses and flavoured fine vinegars.
You don't NEED this if you are starting out with cooking... but it is so very tasty when you learn how to use more things!
Feel free to ask questions!
