spices

  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    http://www.ediblewildfood.com/peppergrass.aspx One of the things I've been looking for off and on. Think this'll do it and think I've seen it around. I'll have to keep an eye out this summer.
  2. Food and water
    You know those little paper-like packets that have taco, onion, chili and other seasonings in them? What do you think about storing them long-term? I plan to put 5 packets, each a different seasoning, in Mylar bags with an oxygen absorber. Do you think I should let the packets be or cut...
  3. Food and water
    Just ran across a spice company called Marshalls Creek. They sell spices, teas, coffee, salt....in the various sizes of plastic containers everyone is familiar with (some are pretty large) ...and they sell refill packs in sealed bags. The quantities seem fairly substantial (about 16 ozs. give or...
  4. Food and water
    I've looked around for cheap bulk spices, but I wanted to see if someone here may know somewhere to get the absolute cheapest spices. Or at least point me in a good direction.
  5. Recipes
    As a lot of people are just starting to expand their spice stock and usage, I thought I'd post a few of the mixes I've come across that save me money and expand my spice rack. I hope others that have these mixes will post them too. I'll post them each under a different title in the thread so...
  6. Recipes
    I was going through the spice rack today to try to identify what spices i'll need to possibly add or increase my supply or throw out. And, I was wondering what spices do you have on-hand, or plan to use with your long-term foods, and how well the spices store? I can purchase some in larger...
  7. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I am starting a herb garden, for spices and medicinal herbs. I do not have much experience in growing them. I would like us to share experiences with them and learn from those who have experience growing them. I live in Northern Wisconsin so I plan to plant as many freeze hardy perennials as...

My question is should I just leave em in the original containers and throw em in the mylar or actually empty them all out into the mylar bags. I also hav honey that I figure I'm just gonna...
  10. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    The idea is to plant a small plot of these, kinda like grapes. The peppers can be ground into powder and used as a spice. Unlike jalapeños or other types of peppers, these do not have to be replanted every year. If you have a retreat, consider planting some of these peppers close by, let them...
  11. Ladies Section
    My mom always called me a *spice snob* because I HAVE to have certain spices AT ALL TIMES or my kitchen feels *naked* to me! Here's my usual: Garlic (dried, fresh and minced in oil and roasted & minced in oil) Chives (dried, fresh when I can get it!) Salt (kosher, coarse sea salt and regular)...
  12. Recipes
    I will do the instructions for creating (and re-using) a vinegar *mother* on another thread...but here's some recipes for flavored vinegar. They add a bright splash of flavor to salads and can be used in cooking too. Some, mixed with seltzer (carbonated) water make a refreshing summer drink...
